The skeletons of up to 800 babies were found in the septic tank of an old Irish home for unwed mothers. Unwed mothers were sent to these homes after becoming pregnant out of wedlock, forced to work for a few years as "penance." Some of their babies died after birth from malnutrition and other causes; others were basically ostracized and not accepted by society. But what about the fathers? Seems they got a free pass from suffering ...

I get fired up about these things. I was born out of wedlock, too. I faced some harsh words because of that, but never anything like this. And people wonder why I care about feminism. Holy hell.
