‘Black birthing bodies’ sounds like a term dreamt up by the Ku Klux Klan.

I’m white, but it makes me extremely uncomfortable. For me, I’d no more be able to utter such a phrase than more well known racial slurs. I don’t understand how people might not see that where a history of treating Black women specifically as property that could be used to breed more property exists, that terminology like this is even more horrific and insensitive.

Is it mostly white TRAs/misogynists who are doing this? I know that a lot of BM suck and are very sexist but I still can't imagine even an extremely misogynistic BM (except maybe a TIM, though I haven't yet heard it from Black TIMs either) referring to BW as "Black birthing bodies."
