in the J'can context, its babymother, and its not something thats looked down on. In fact, the babymother gets plenty of respect, or comes first. (where is Diane? I need one of her eloquent posts on the matterLOLbabymother is even used to describe upper crust women, who have a child by a man who they are not married to. I cant recall any outrage over the term.

For some reason i feel likein the US context, babymama bares a different connotation, even though its the same thing, just worded differently?

That's why i asked for other opinions. Your experiences may be different. I dont know. Ive never seen or heard a babymother scorned or reviled because she is a babymother. Usually there are other issues related to why the woman is treated or looked at a certain way --maybe not getting along with the family; she had a child with a man who was already married, etc. Even the dancehall DJs treat the babymothers with respect ---

and yes YG, I have heard the term "babymother" used to describe uptown hoity-toity women how have kids out of wedlock. Nobody says "baby's mother".

Baby momma is not a term of endearment.

Mother of my child(ren)will suffice.

Calling someone a baby momma is shade don't care how you try to slice it.

Would you walk in a jewelry store and tell them you came to buy bling?
Granted bling is outdated...

If you and your significant other were in the presence of dignitaries/media would you REALLY want to be referred to as his baby moms. Especially if said "baby" is now 10. I'll wait.

Come now.

It's cultural vernacular meant to shame single moms.

<------ doesn't have kids.

It is a term of the inarticulate and poor. I judge the people who use it more than any one who would fit the description

yeah I agree w this page...I don't call anyone I like a 'baby mama'.  I'd feel like I lost if the future father of my child refers to me as one.

You might be a baby mama but you can be doing better than a lot of people without kids or people who were married when they had kids. It's just another form of cattiness. 


Well said star.

Yes that's exactly what I mean.  It is intended to diminish the importance of / respect towards the woman being referred to. Whether to the new chick or those who might mistake that ex girlfriend as someone who matters as an individual.
