very common reaction. When dear daughter sat on my lap or pushchair, sometimes I overlook, commuters would give me those glares or shift a bit away when accidently touched by gal.
Actually some special sch teacher also got this 'behaviour'. If recall properly ..... Gal's ex-classmate was trying to open the class door to run out but the teacher wanted him back. So while resisting/stepping backwards, child accidently touched the teacher's breast .... she complained to Principal and Senior teacher she was molested by a 9yr old boy!! Teacher blamed mummy for not educating/bringing up the child well! Child has global developmental delay as well as lack of verbal communication.
