- A child born out of wedlock.
- Something that is of irregular, inferior, or dubious origin.
- Slang. A person, especially one who is held to be mean or disagreeable.
It is interesting to me that in an age that emphasizes personal achievement over inherited wealth, where we are taught never to judge or discriminate based on a person's race, religion, sexual orientation, or origins, that we still label children for something they have no power over, and ignore the irresponsible attitudes and actions of the people who put them in that position in the first place.
What do you think?
