Remember the uproar when Fox News called Michelle Obama Barack's babies' mama?  There was a reason there was an uproar.   The term "baby's mama" carries a lot of negative connotations. 

There's also an element of classism that we're overlooking.

I only made it to page six but why can't we just do better?  Do we have to accept the term as valid? 
Who created this term?  My guess would be a man who didn't want to acknowledge an ex as an ex or wanted to wrap up "whatever the relationship was" + one or two babies in a nice little package?  Or the person is no longer a partner and their only status is momma of the baby?  Same for baby daddy.

Ex is a perfectly acceptable term and was acceptable for hundreds of years.  If they ask for further explanation related to children he/she is the mother/father of ones child.  We can instead choose to use words to uplift young single mothers by refusing to call them "baby mamas" and not calling young men "baby daddies". 

I consider myself hood family and have yet to find myself referring to another woman/man this way.  Unnecessary and unfortunately deemed negative. 

Okay, y'all go ahead and finishLOL

Dare I agree?LOL

Not much.
The rest of us are aware of the connotations of it...
