harleydragon/gruff..just to clarify, the word "safe" was mis-interpreted & never once said "secure".i do appreciate ya'lls honesty on this, Thank you! hear ya'll load/clear and this isn't the first time its been said. the "negetive" end of the spectrum concerning this post should be noted by everyone, exspecially the women. Thanks again...peace...Ladybug
HarleyDragon, you took the words right outta my mouth... ladies, if you aren't somebody's ol lady you are viewed as a potential pass around... and if you're a pass around, you'll NEVER be a brother's ol lady... when they're done with ya they'll trade ya for a pack of cigarettes.. I've seen it happen more than once... my ol man lived and died a 1%er... he was killed while on "club business".. the initial question here was "are you uneasy around patches?".. my answer is absolutely not... the ol man's brothers were, are and always will be family... I love them all, but I am only TOO aware of what my "family" is capable of...
I have many club member friends, mostly retired and that is a different story. I've visited and rode with a few clubs. I have no fear, but I have respect and watch my back and actions. I think property patches are the most degrading thing to a woman. Dated a guy who was an officer in one. He didn't expect me to wear one and the members respected his wish not to share, thank God. It isn't always like that. Women are not equals that is for sure!
Well HD I'll have to give you credit. I would have to say those are the wisest words I've read on this subject so far. You can explain it to them a thousand times but sometimes they just don't get it or they just don't want to believe it. You never really know how a lion is going to act until you get in the cage without a lion tamer. Nuff said.
little sister, thanks for contacting me. No I don't feel uncomfortable around clubs. I've partied with many members of various clubs at abate parties and at clubhouses all over. Localy we have four major clubs represented, and many smaller clubs in and out of the area. So knowing club members is a fact of life and respect for each is mutual!
the "MEN" i do know are one of a kind people, they show me the respect i give, i have been invited and in, had a freak'n blast.....not to mention the feeling of utt-most safety and protection...but eyes/ears always open..
Uneasy? No, not very often at all. But it also depends on what type of club you are referring to and what they are doing. (Also what I am doing at the time.) There's quite a bit of difference between a motorcycle riders club and true 1%ers, which is what I have dealt with mostly. I've never been invited to the clubhouse although I have been in it, and never will be invited. Least-ways not around here!
