I saw this thought and set out to disprove it. I found an example of a woman in a paint spattered coat. However, I was unable to duplicate the result when it came to bikers. I viewed a bunch of biker photos and couldn’t find a single instance where PETA types opposed the bikers wearing leathers.
People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it’s safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.Unknown
I guess it could be professional courtesy.
Sometimes the answer is right in front of you, you just can’t see it.
