Yes! I was just talking to a friend about this… I think a lot of it stems from fear of “replacement” if white women stop having children. In Australia, a low birth rate would mean more immigrants to take care of an ageing population, so I absolutely agree there is inherent racism built into the whole attitude. I’m sure WOC have a different experience, as you say.
