When a woman sunbathes topless at a bar in New York City, it’s hard not to be amazed at her bravery.
It’s a story that goes back to 2011, when a group of women began gathering in a Brooklyn bar and asking for privacy.
“They said, ‘We don’t want anybody to see us naked on a public beach, because if we do, people will just look at us and think we’re crazy,'” recalled one of the women, who asked to be identified by her first name, Lauren.
The women, known as The Wigs, said they were just friends, but they weren’t about to give up on their privacy rights, so they agreed to a private spot for a week.
One day, a black man emerged from the bathroom, wearing only his shorts and underwear, to take photos.
Another woman said the man made a pass at her, saying, “I don’t care if you’re white, black, Asian or Hispanic.
I’m gonna do whatever you say.”
But Lauren said the woman had a point.
This is what happens when women are afraid to go naked in public.
A few years later, in 2018, another group of people joined the Wigs in Brooklyn.
When they came to a bar, a group in a white dress, a white T-shirt and white pants.
The women decided to pose for a picture with the man, and a few hours later, he came back to ask for a photo.
But when he came to the women and asked for a shot, they said no.
They asked why, and the man told them he wanted to make sure they got the shot.
He also asked to take a photo with the woman, which they declined.
Then, the man asked for their number and they gave it to him.
Finally, the woman said, “No.”
They had a good laugh.
It was the first time in years they’d been together.
In a video that went viral, the group can be heard telling the man to go fuck himself.
I’m just saying, the way he’s acting now, you know, he doesn’t have any reason to do it.
It’s so weird, but we have to be on the right side of this, the Wig sisters said.
After the video went viral and caused a stir online, the bar in question was forced to close.
But Lauren, who was there, said it’s still been a part of their lives ever since.
For her part, Lauren said she wasn’t going to take her safety for granted.
She said she’s had several sexual encounters with men over the years, and it’s just part of the game.
“You’ve gotta be ready for it, man,” she said.
“Because you never know when somebody’s gonna be in the right spot, or you’re gonna be able to get out.”
