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.

I worry that this 'owner' language is hinting that female body parts are available to buy and sell. And it is always the female ones for some reason.

For sure. I remember getting into an argument with a man who thought (genuinely believed until he reread his own sources) that a uterus transplanted into a male body could still menstruate and become pregnant. I absolutely believe they will try to pass this off as fact to try and buy uteri from women and label women transphobic for not giving up their body parts to allow men to Frankenstein themselves.
