However, instead of thinking:
Ah, how cute.
How nice it is that a father is walking his girl to school.
I instantly thought:
God, I hope that's his kid!
How messed up is that!? I think the world is corrupting me. What used to be NORMAL, NICE behavior is now immediately perceived as messed up or wrong.
Here's another example: my husband has a habit of interacting with other-people's children at restaurants or shopping malls and I'm constantly telling him to cut it out or he'll be arrested for being a creep. (He's not a creep, BTW.)
And another: Remember when it cute for two friends (both being girls) to walk down the street holding hands? Now, we immediately assume everyone is gay!
How have you noticed the world's NORMs change?
