WOMEN: DO NOT GO TO CROWN VICTORIA BAR IN WILLIAMSBURG, BROOKLYN. NOT EVEN ONCE.

SIGNAL. BOOST. TW: Violent Attack and Abuse, Victim Blaming.

Let me preface this with: I am fine. I’m going to be fine. I got lucky because my friends were there to help. I would say “this sort of thing doesn’t happen to people like me,” but the truth is there’s not a certain kind of person it happens to. It just happens because there are shitty people in the world.

A man brutally attacked me, and the only reason I’m not dead or in a coma is because my friend stepped in and fought for me. At the end of the scuffle I grabbed my mace and hit him with it, and the truly lovely men who work at Crown Vic told me that they WOULD NOT get me ice. Would not get my friend ice– That I should be careful with my mace, it “could have hit *them*” And *my favorite* comment “it’s shocking I don’t get punched in the face more often by men since I’m ‘so annoying.’”

To be fair, I can be hella annoying (lol), but being the victim of a crime should not be seen as annoying. Should not give license to a manager to GET IN THE FACE of a woman on the sidewalk outside of his bar and say she deserves more of the same.  NO ONE deserves to be abused and the fact that three grown men watched a woman get punched in the face and refused to help her is reason for me to believe that they aren’t looking out for you and they absolutely WILL NOT protect you if you go there. 

You will get roofied.

You will get raped.

You might get beaten.

And THEY. WILL. BLAME. YOU. FOR. IT.

There are plenty of bars to chill with friends in that neighborhood. DO NOT RISK GOING TO CROWN VICTORIA BAR AND BEER GARDENS IN WILLIAMSBURG. It might save your life.
