I go to a paint night in the town next to mine once a month.
We sit in a drafty garage with our canvas and paint and the instructor walks us through making our own painting.
I have NEVER in 2 years of going EVER seen a man at paint night.
This month the instructor had a “Girls Night” paint night to raise money or a local woman’s organization.
2 men were there. They didn’t raise a ruckus or cause any trouble but they were there. They have 24 paint nights a year to choose from and NEVER go but the one night when she says it’s “women only” 2 men suddenly show up.
As they say in “Among Us” - sus
I was chatting with the instructor after and she said she’s only ever had 1 man ever come to paint night before and she was surprised when 2 men applied and came on the same night - the first and only time she’s EVER said “girls night”. Maybe they thought that we’d be doing a live nude or something or maybe they just couldn’t stand the thought of there being something for women that they weren’t invited to. The instructor said she only said “girls night” as a kind of joke and had no legal ability to stop any men from attending. The class description said like “Girl Night! Come have a fun night with the girls to raise money for [local women’s charity]. Leave your hubby at home blah blah blah”
It annoys me that men see “girls night” “women only” and simply HAVE to invade.
FWIW they weren’t transwomen - just normal men.
