It's fine to be a B

Hamilton, UK

In modern society, there isn't anything invariably and inevitably wrong in having children while not married.

I see nothing wrong in being a bastard and nothing wrong with having children with someone to whom one isn't legally married. It is the environment, the quality of life and the human values one has to offer a child that should determine whether a couple are in a position to provide a home for a child, not old ideas of marriage.

Polygamy,(legal or unofficial), is a different question; as is having children by a number of different partners, whether one is widow(er)ed or not.

"You're a B'" is an outdated insult. It's like saying "You were born IN wedlock" - not really insulting, is it?
