This Breastfeeding Mom Just Won Comeback of the Year

Your feel-good story of the day is equal parts hilarious and empowering. While breastfeeding in a public park in the UK, an anonymous woman was approached by a stranger who was very upset about the fact the mother was breastfeeding in public. The reason? She was sitting nearby with her “very easily distracted husband.” Okay.

Turns out, it’s against the law in the UK to ask a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place—so the mom, who, you know, was providing life-sustaining nutrients to her baby, responded with a great big fuck you. To our collective delight, the affronted stranger took to the internet to tell her story (hearing her perspective doesn’t really make her actions look any better):

“To the lady Dartford park who thought it was appropriate to breastfeed her baby whist my child and very easily distracted husband sat near by. I don’t think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private, telling me to fuck off and squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for. I hope you are ashamed of yourself!”

Her. Breastmilk. THE WOMAN SQUIRTED HER BREASTMILK AT HER. This maybe isn’t the first response we would have come up with (and, okay, maybe there *are* other ways to go about getting the message across), but honestly, does somebody who has an issue with women minding their own damn business and feeding their babies really even deserve a mature and fully thought-out response? Yeah, that’s what we thought. Keep on keeping on, anonymous woman.
