BLACK PEOPLE “INVADED” LUNCH COUNTERS IN THE SOUTH TOO, UPSETTING PEOPLE WHO WERE THERE: Men are showing up to the Wing and women are pissed.

The Wing was supposed to be the ultimate sanctuary for women: decidedly feminine in design, with walls and furniture in shades of millennial pink and a thermometer set at a women’s-clothing-friendly 72 degrees. Conference rooms and telephone booths are named after feminist icons like Anita Hill and fictional literary heroines such as Hermione Granger of “Harry Potter” fame. It offers perks that other co-working spaces can’t match — showers stocked with high-end beauty products and events featuring big names such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Critics of the Wing were quick to point out the lack of diversity in the spaces, but the company’s expansion and popularity has brought up a completely different issue that was never expected to arise: straight men wanting to come in and hang out.

Sure, it’s not against the rules for men to be at the lady lair, which costs anywhere from $185 to $250 a month in the US to join. But that’s only because legally the company can’t ban men.

“There’s usually at least one [man] whenever I visit,” says Kaitlin Phillips, 29, a member in New York for the past two years. “It’s bizarre to choose to occupy a space women specifically wanted for themselves. Classic patriarchal entitlement complex.”

The problem, multiple members have told The Post, is that the men physically take up too much space with their bigger bodies and belongings.

First of all, how dare you assume their gender? Second, I’ve seen plenty of feminists who take up a lot of room with their “bigger bodies and belongings.” And really, did you think you could have your ban-all-male-spaces rule and still have all female spaces? Yes, yes, of course you did. Classic matriarchal entitlement complex.
