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 finish
