Out of curiosity, anyone else kind of uncomfortable about calling cishets “breeders”?
We should probably reserve the term for people who have a breeding kink. ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯
Besides the fact that queer people, cis and trans, can be and are fairly commonly involved in conception, there is a long and disturbing history of reducing women and especially Black women to reproduction. In the latter case, with means of utmost violence and dehumanization.
I would be generally sympathetic to using it narrowly in labelling specific individuals when responding to them deploying religious narratives of "sex and marriage are exclusively about cisheteronormative reproduction", but beyond that it gets extremely shaky.
