I dunno, this sort of language just bugs me. I don't 'own' my uterus, I have it. I was born with it. It is a part of me. I don't 'own' my eyeballs either. I was born with them, they are a part of me. I didn't go to the store and pick them out. I didn't pay for them. They belong to me.

David Lammy (UK politician) accused women of 'hoarding' our rights.

I feel like anything women have - our time, work, bodies, emotions, even our human rights - are just seen as resources that we are unfairly hoarding.

I'm not planning on having children, maybe I should stop 'hoarding' my uterus.

If women were a sufficiently large majority of the population I have a feeling this cultural "trend" (seeing women as unfairly "hoarding" our own resources) would go the way of the dinosaurs, which it should.

I agree, and yet I don't understand why half, not a majority but not a minority, isn't enough.

Because we are not a democracy, the dominant group rules. A sufficiently large majority of women would allow us to dominate.
