[music |air conditioner]

Some of the most renowned men and women in history and art were born bastards. Among this very imposing list are the following:
Alexander Hamilton, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury
Sarah Bernhardt, World famous actress
William The Conquerer, The first Norman ruler of England
Jenny Lind, renowned singer
Marilyn Monroe, world famous actress and movie star
Givoanni Boccaccio, the Italian author of X-rated stories
Frederic Douglass, famous abolitionist
Alexandre Dumas, French novelist and playwright
Leonardo da Vinci, Great inventor and artist
Bernardo O’Higgins, one of the liberators of South America
Richard Wagner, famous German composter
Josephine, Wife of Napolean
Juan Peron, Argentine president
-- And countless more. :)

Are you a bastard?

Legally I am, because my Mom was pregnant when she got married to my Dad.. but she got married, so I guess it's up for debate.

And I even know when and where I came about. (From an inebriated dad.)

So's my son, but the best whoops I ever made, even if the situation that he was created in wasn't ideal. :)

Babies are the best mistakes in the world. ;)


And hey.. you could be a fascist dictator like Juan Peron. Why not? :)

Not a bastard, but for sure an accident. Clearly I am in good company.

Speaking of the debate on bastard status

Even during Puritan Times 1 out of 5 women were noticeably pregnant when they got married. Such women had an "F" (for fornication) written next to their names in the marriage books. Would such children all be considered bastards? Eh, either way such labels are out dated and silly.

Re: Speaking of the debate on bastard status

Really? That's SO cool! I never knew that. Where'd you gleam that awesome tidbit?

And yes,I believe they would. I remember reading a novel set in the revolutionary war where a girl lost her job because someone could do math and her parents married in August, and she had clearly been conceived in July.

Dun dun dun!!!

I shall stand up to represent the factions of bastards out there. Although it is not a very nice term or something I would like to be called, yes I am.

Well, I think it's all right to embrace things people call you that are supposed to be an insult. Words only hold power if you give them power.

Even if you were created in marriage? I suppose, if I'm a bastard and I was created OUT of marriage and born in marriage, it'd have to be reversed too.

Really? Was she singing in one of his circuses, or how did they meet?

I remember hearing that she had oooooodles of admirers. Those opera singers. Always such hotties, how can you resist?

hmm, i was in the same boat as you. my mother was six months pregnant when she got married to my father. so legally, i'm a bastard? i'm not sure. i always wondered that.

I probabl shouldn't have said legally, I just assumed the deal was anyone conceived outside the confines of a marriage is a bastard, right?

And wow! I bet that wedding dress was tight!
