Bastard, Illegitimate Child = Outdated Terms/Concepts?

A child is only legitimate if the parents are married? Long ago, children out-of-wedlock was scandalous and shameful. Not so anymore. A bastard is a child whose parents aren't married. Aren't these old fashioned terms that ought to be retired by now? More and more children are parented by people who chose not to marry. Every gay couple that uses a surrogate for an offspring would have a bastard child. I understand legal technicalities, but so what if a child was born out-of-wedlock? Can't you still have a court preceding without the shameful concept of illegitimacy? Pretty harsh. Just curious what your opinions are about this.
