“Meanwhile you’re filming him,” another man pointed out.
Explaining their double standard, one man said: “So you can record him but he can’t look at you??? wth”

Libby replied, “And even then it’s not enough, ma’am.”
“I love that you’re getting hate for realizing the good behavior we need to see more of,” said one as Libby showed off a man doing the bare minimum.
“It’s not the men in the comments who blame the girls for being scared – rather the men who scared them in the first place and give others bad answers,” one male observer said. how toxic it can be.
One man admitted: “Believe me the man did everything in his power to not look.”
While some advocates of affected bodybuilding, saying: “Those are always private accounts and ‘no content’ are the ones with the most to talk about. You’re a great girl, let’s go. keep it up!!”
