    Yes, expectation is an attitude, when the policy is not to expect. I think there were some people above who could see what I am saying. Read. I don't have anything to prove you I am not projecting.

    um, I kinda expect that most people I meet are straight, or that most people I meet can see in color or do not have OCD. Rajah is correct about the way they should go about doing things, but feeling moral outrage about this just seems silly to me.

    Outrage is too strong word for what I feel. But, yeah, I also expect most people to be straight, statistically speaking, but... I think there is difference between me expecting it and the government expecting it. It is a subtle thing, but I think that this kind of subtleties might amount to much if they are not dealt with.

    Yay Lateralus! Now I don't have to say it. International hobby it's become. Finding something to get offended about. And, worse yet, trying to "fix" it.

    I think Jennifer is accurate in her observation that, in spite of massive efforts to raise consciousness, many live in their own little worlds and the thought hasn't occurred.

    Just like the laughable predicament the state of Nebraska got themselves into when they, so thoughtfully, offered their hospitals as dumping grounds for unwanted children and suddenly found themselves up to their ears in problematic teen-agers! Hah.

    And your perception is most acute, nolla. Don't think it would have occurred to me unless it had happened.
