The term breeder is indeed very common. Most folks understand it to mean people whose major goal in life is to have children without much thought about it - just pop 'em out because that is what we're expected to do. "Breeders" are brainless babymakers.

I personally was not offended by the use of it, because taking offense at something is a choice we make that I feel is generally a waste of time and energy, so I rarely ever let myself feel offended by others' actions - and especially not over any strangers' words on message boards. I did, however, recognize the rudeness of using that term, and that is what I commented on. I am intelligent enough to be able to see something as obnoxious without being personally offended by it.
