The overly-tactful might object to the use of a certain term above.
However, one might say that it is a "legitimate" dictionary use of the word, which is more than can be said of those pursuing this route of procuring a family.
The crux of the issue is not so much that this kind of thing happens as mistakes occur and we're all only human.
The concern arises when no one feels any guilt about such lapses anymore, expects all kinds of accolades and handouts from the rest of us, and then turn around and do it again as if they've learned nothing from the first go round.
Things have gotten so bad that, at a Heritage Foundation roundtable discussion on the problems facing Black Americans, the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson relayed an anecdote where a church he knew of was holding a babyshower not for an errant young girl that became with child prior to marriage but rather for a deaconess that had numerous children outside of marriage. Can anyone tell me why the garments bestowed upon the previously offspring weren't good enough for the newest edition?
Those entranced by the incessant invocation of judge not lest ye be judged these days to coverup a litany of popular shortcomings will no doubt be appalled by these apparently strident comments.
But something has to be said when those snickered at during extended family gatherings are not the ones with two and three illegitimate kids in tow along with their assorted concubines and manwhores whom even the octogenarians of the clan have been conditioned into accepting as husbands and wives of the next generation though nary a marriage license can be found among them but rather those that have avoided the temptation to copulate with anything that moves.
