Izabele Lomax, a young mother from Maryland, was shocked to find a video of herself breastfeeding her baby online, posted without her permission. The video, shared in a breastfeeding support group, implied she should have covered up. This invasion of privacy prompted Lomax to respond boldly.

In her empowering response, Lomax confronted the person who filmed her, stressing the need for respectful communication. She criticized the sexualization of breastfeeding and advocated for educating children about it as a natural act, challenging the stigma associated with it.
