    "There were many times where I didn’t bring a cover with me, and so I just did it in a restaurant, in the subway, in the park, at airports, and in planes. Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child," she told Vanity Fair. And she said that the negative reactions she received from people surprised her: "People actually looked at us in a shameful [way], and we were like, ‘Oh my God,’ because it’s so not a sexual act. It didn’t matter to me what other people thought."

    2. Megan Fox doubled down on her decision to let her sons wear dresses and grow their hair long after intense backlash from close-minded bigots.

    "Wow. Shaming a woman who has a great work ethic, is a great mom, and who steps up and fills in when a friend asks for a favor because that’s actually what 'good old country girls' do," Kelly tweeted in response. "This can’t be who you are deep down. I have more faith in your heart. Aim higher please."

    4. Cardi B slammed those who shamed her for releasing the risqué song "WAP" as a mother.

I don’t make music for kids, I make music for adults. Parents are responsible [for] what their children listen to or see. I’m a very sexual person but not around my child, just like every other parent should be."
