I don't expect it. But I do expect people not to behave like *ssholes. Blonds/Jews/Blacks. etc. of normal intellect can defend/advocate for themselves--those with severe intellectual disabilities cannot. My world does not revolve around me -- it revolves around my son, and I will ALWAYS be his advocate. So you can kiss my *ss.
