Did I ever say I expected that?
As far as what I expect: I expect to be treated fairly under the law and not discriminated against for a job and everything else.
That's what's ironic here -- for all intents and practical purposes, I am the person I claim to be, and that's how I'm perceived -- yet some people would place restrictions and impositions on me and treat me in a completely different fashion because of something for all intents and practical purposes I am not.
That's pretty irrational, to me. That's distinguishing and targeting a class of people not for merit or deserved restrictions but for who they are.
I don't have to have the law enforce respect for me, because the huge majority of people take me at face value as the person I am, and I behave in ways that earn their respect... even the same people who are passing laws against people like me. And believe me, I have given people in my life the freedom to accept or reject me, despite some the rejections hurting pretty hard, so you can knock off your false notions here of what I expect; I've taken the lumps to prove I've given people liberty to respond to me how they want.
Right now, in this thread, we're talking "LEGAL SYSTEM" and people who are trying to issue bans against entire groups of people, not about whether the cops are going to try and force you to attend Joe Schmoe's gay wedding as a sign of respect. So why are you involved again? Why is this issue so far away from you and so irrelevant to you so important?
