Normal is an illusion

Normal is an illusion

Normal is an illusion; I get yelled at about this. What I have in my head as normal is bound to be stupid to someone else.

A friend of mine summed up the situation perfectly. She dresses in a kind of gothic style, which her father does not approve of.

Her dad: Why can’t you dress normally?
Her: So you want me walking around showing my butcrack and cleavage?

Well… I don’t remember the exact wording, but it was something along those lines. When she told me about that, I laughed.

She’s right.

Unfortunately, and I blame the media, showing more is becoming the “norm” for our society. It is stressed that we should be ourselves and not follow others, but then people judge and call people weird and say that some people are abnormal.

I don’t appreciate that.

What do you think of the word “normal” and its usage?
