they are brings forth peace of mind and comfort, it also gives them
the desire to share their new found awareness of self with others.
People who could appreciate their excitement of self-acceptance as
happily single women, other women who have endured the ridicule and
dumbfounded looks from strangers, friends, and family. No one wants
to be an island so a need to know others that value their
separateness rather than submit to societal demands to conform is
desired. Spinster fellowship has increased with more women
acknowledging their social diversity with the intent on living in a
"roundabout fashion" (openly) for all to see. Unity with others that
share a common belief makes for strength and agility in times of
pressure from the greater society at hand.
No more secret rendevous at isolated locations and mouth covered
whispers, these women are meeting in public places such as
libraries, restaurants, taverns, coffee shops, parks, and so on with
little care if they're suspect in their motives. The first thing
outsiders assume when seeing a group of attractive, sophisticated
women is they must be available for dates and relationships with the
nearest man or secondly they're gay, both assumptions are false. The
more leather spinsters make their presence known the more their
image in the media and societal perceptions of them will change.
Being open about their lifestyle but not forcing others to accept
them will help future generations of women that don't see committed
relationships, intimacy, and marriage as belonging on their priority
list. It will give them another option from which to choose without
the same cultural bashing experienced by spinsters of past and
present. Unlike other groups, leather spinsters refuse to force
others to accept them, their ultimate goal is to be happy living as
they please, it is believed that with time and visibility more women
will find solace in knowing they belong somewhere other than
committed relationships and marriage.
It must also be stated that leather spinsters tend to be of the
thought that all future options should be left open, so if the
desire to add new dimensions to their living arrangements should
arise they're not locked into decisions made in the past.
