Man Harasses Mom For Breastfeeding In Public. She Snaps Back With The Brutal Truth.


What’s more important: a baby’s comfort as they feed, or a stranger’s discomfort because of something that wasn’t their business to begin with? I think we all know the answer to that question. The issue of whether a mother has the right to openly breastfeed in public has come up again — somehow.

After going to H&R Block with her baby, Avery Lane was told to leave after a manager asked her to cover up and she refused. Avery’s amazing response has people talking on Facebook and you need to read it for yourself.

One thing is clear, people still don’t seem to understand that breastfeeding is a mother’s right.

Again and again you hear stories about someone shaming a mother for breastfeeding in public or telling her to cover her baby’s head. It’s a boob, get over it. More importantly, should a baby be uncomfortable because a grown-ass adult feels a smidgen of discomfort? Hell naw.

In fact, several instances of this harassment have popped up online recently.

One mom in Connecticut was verbally attacked by a man in Target for breastfeeding in public and Target employees had to come to her defense.

Another woman, Avery Lane, has people talking online after a killer response she laid on a man that harassed her for breastfeeding in public.

In a Facebook post, Avery explained what happened to her: “So I was breastfeeding my 2 month old at a H&R Block on a military post when the manager asked me ‘Can you cover up with a towel or something?'”

Obviously, not what she expected to hear. Avery was shocked and decided that she needed to say something to the man.

This is why it’s good to know what’s legal in your state — Avery let the man know that it was her right to openly feed her child.

“I was completely shocked so I raised my voice slightly and said ‘No but I have a muslin if you would like to cover your face. You must not know Georgia’s breastfeeding laws,'” she wrote.

“He asked me to leave since he was helping my friend and not me. So I then called the Military Police so they could come and inform him of them,” she added.

It looks like the man’s lack of knowledge was about to bite him in the ass.

After arriving, the military police let the man know that he was simply out of line.

“I’m glad they came and informed him that he could not tell me to leave. Also one of the MPs told me that there is nothing wrong with a mother breastfeeding her child.”

It feels good when justice is served, right? Avery’s Facebook post proceeded to blow up with comments and shares.

At this point, more than 43,000 people have liked the post. The reactions to her message have been overwhelming.

People immediately agreed with Avery, pointing out that it’s not a simple inconvenience to cover your child. They usually don’t like it.

The next comment was my personal favorite. So true!

The next interaction in the comment section was quite interesting. One woman pointed out that she never really saw the big deal with covering up.

The consensus is that babies tend to not like being covered, and it seems worse for some babies than others.

It’s surprising how many people were actually against public breastfeeding. Nita Scott pointed out that while she doesn’t have a problem with breastfeeding, other people find it weird — and for that reason, people should cover up.

Obviously, several people quickly replied to this comment.

Robin Dallaire replied saying that “I hope you will soon learn to see women’s breasts in a non- sexual way.”

Diana Morris points out that, aside from people unnecessarily sexualizing breasts, it used to be fairly commonplace until recently.



Avery wants her message to be heard so that breastfeeding becomes more widely accepted in public.

“I’m only posting this because I hope more moms will stand up to normalize breastfeeding. I refuse to cover my child or nurse in my car,” concluded Avery.
