    Alcohol, a tight suit, assumptions, and defensiveness go together too often. (And a tight suit can look like a bandanna, too.) It makes me sad that someone would feel like it's okay to ogle a nursing mom, but in these days of the news-cycle, does it surprise me? No.

    On the one hand, I celebrate what you did. On the other, I probably would have approached them differently. But I'm sure I would have approached them. I'm all about shaming people who are cruel in that way, and I can be pretty good at it – not that I'm proud of it!

    Trolls exist in real life too, and they don't deserve to be fed there either.
