What assumptions (presumptions?) do you make right off the bat about people before you know anything more about them? Ofcourse this is based on your own surroundings, experiences, values, how you grew up and all that - doesn't matter. But the presumptions we make about another person or group can be very telling, so I was wondering.... The ones I usually make are..... 1. That everyone over 30 has a child. If not, you're probaby sterile or suffering infertility. 2. That everyone over 40 has been married. Definitely if you're over 50. (unless you're gay) 3. That white people are racist or prejudice until otherwise proven not. 4. That all white people have money or have an easier chance to make money from somewhere or somebody and are not really poor. Poor white people are odd or look like an anomoly to me. 5. That all people are heterosexual unless said or proven otherwise. 6. That everyone over 25 has had sex. 7. That everyone is religious, mainly christian or a belief in christ. 8. That all gay men have anal sex. (the statistics says that only about 30% of gay men engage in that) 9. That black women with natural hair are 'conscious.' these aren't the only ones I have made, but that's all I can think of now. May add later.
