The word normal is often used as a term for something accepted. Something that is not normal is subject for frustration and exclusion.
But normal is actually something that most people are or do or behave. It has nothing to do with social acceptance, really.
Most people are heterosexual. So homosexuality is not normal. But that – in my world – does not mean that it is not something acceptable.
It is considered normal to get angry sometimes, but often that is often still frowned upon, especially if it is outside of the family. So here is something that is normal, not acceptable behavior.
But normal has become what you are and do if you don’t distinguish yourself too much from the group.
The price of standing out is high. Because in general people want to know what kind of people they are dealing with. And if a person seems to be like oneself that person is trustworthy. And the more the person differs from the viewer the more uncomfortable it gets.
But why must something that is not “normal” be something that is wrong and maybe even scary?
