What's wrong with "parents
"? Is that offensive to single mother
s these days, or something? "Breeders" gives the impression of a group of people who do nothing but ceaselessly procreate
, possibly for money. For surrogate mother
s or sperm-bank donor
s, fair enough but these are very rare and specialise
d cases. No-one else should be described in those terms.
It's a horrible word, please stop using it.
- Do i detect a note of hypocrisy
here? It's quite possible for discrimination
cases to brought for using homophobic term
s. Doing it back it is
- a) Snide
- b) Self-destructive
For example, i can imagine being called a "breeder" being used as a fair defence for a homophobic insult.
