Why is it arrogant?

If you see anything I have written then it will be written in English.  Why 
would you expect that I know some language other than the one that I 
demonstrate in all my communication?

It's generally considered arrogant when English speaking people expect the 
rest of the world to speak English.  Shouldn't the same presumption of 
arrogance be applied when people who don't speak English expect me to speak 
their language?
