Man demands group of women cover up 'pornographic' bikinis at the beach

By Luke Matthews

A man who approached a group of women at the beach to tell them to cover up their bodies has gone viral after the confrontation was uploaded to social media.

TikTok user Ggarbagefairy, from Colorado, US, uploaded a series of clips of her and eight friends sitting on the beach when they are approached by a man, who has also shared his own video to defend his actions.

He can be heard asking the group of 18-year-olds: "Why do you dress this way? That's a thong and that's a bra, take young eyes into consideration, they don't need to see pornography right in front of their eyes. You're flaunting your stuff."

The group repeatedly ask the man to leave them alone, as he continues: "If men of God don't stand up, then society will go down the drain because there's no morality.

"The reason why you're showing your body is like 'am I pretty enough?' I'm just saying."

When they ask the man what he would consider acceptable to wear on the beach, he says a one piece swimsuit and tells them: "There will come a day where you're going to come face-to-face with God", before a woman who is at the beach with him joins in.

The woman who uploaded the videos, known as Mia, later shared a photo of the group at the beach to show the bikinis they were wearing, and refuted his accusation that any of them were "thongs", arguing it wouldn't matter even if they had been.

She managed to track down the man who had approached them and tagged him in the video, prompting him to respond and "share my side of the story" after the clips went viral.

The man, identified as Logan, said he was not "harassing or berating women" but was at the beach when one of his family members said they would have to move as there were women "showing too much" and she didn't want her children to see them.

@Loganvandorn explained: "Right then and there, I had a righteous anger come over me, and also just a boldness by the holy spirit to go and confront these ladies and to speak truth that hey, what you're wearing is not okay for a nine-year-old boy or a six-year-old boy."

He said he was "introduced to pornography at a young age and it destroyed me", arguing he wanted to protect "young eyes".

Logan stated he was not going to apologise because "society is on such a downcline (sic) of morality" and people "don't even know their gender anymore".
