What do you think when you hear the word Bastard?

I know the traditional meaning, but I think it has a new connotation now. My mom insists it is only used as the proper meaning. LOL

  • I instantly think of the movie "Bastard out of Carolina".
    Dang that was a good movie!
    Depends on which generation you grew up in and if you're up on the new terms... Depends on how it's used in the sentence. I jokingly tell my friend "you're such a baaaaaastard" and it's used like jerk etc, but if someone says "yea, she's got another little bastard" I think of the old way... that it's an illigitimate child but so many people do now that it's not frowned upon like it was when I was a teenager which sure makes it easier on the innocent child.
