Who is to judge what is normal?

To classify all humanity as normal/not normal is a logical fallacy. We are all different, individually unique human beings. Imposing your idea of how someone should behave is not fair to them. Do you act because you feel a certain way or do you act considering how other's percieve your actions? Do you conform to what is "normal" on purpose?

Why do you cry when someone dies? Is it to seem "normal" or because you feel sad. What happens if someone says something about your dead relative that causes you to laugh and smile? Do you suppress the laughter because that is "normal"? Or do you laugh because that memory made you happy even though someone might thing that isn't "normal".

"Oh no Margaret, was that action considered normal by the United State Goverment? Those who don't act normal might be terrorists, better go turn myself in!"

No one man can judge another man's behavior as "not normal" since we are all unique individuals who cannot know our own experience and perception is the same experience and perception that everyone else has. The truth is that we are all different, unique, individuals with different thoughts, emotions, and behavior.

Peace and Love to you, I honestly think that you'll have more success accomplishing your goal if you focus on facts instead of behavior analysis 'nonsense'.
