What is normal?
Society is a Procrustean bed of normalcy, in which some people, no matter how hard they try, never quite measure up or fit in, and thus are driven to retreat from society. With this retreat, the tyranny of normalcy tightens, and society shrinks by losing its individuality, creativity, productivity, and progress. Society needs variety, and sometimes it's not normal to be normal.
