People need to learn ******* basic sociology.
Normal is very, very real and isn't hard to define

I guess there's the norm as in what is more or less universally accepted like no murdering, etc. but can't normal only be defined within a specific group? If not all groups accept what everyone else accepts as normal, how can there be one true normal?

I hope that makes sense, I'm tired.

There are 'social norms' but these vary depending on culture etc.

So there is no set 'normal'.
I did about Social Norms in AS-Level psychology and they're not set in stone.

Fashion is an example or how normality changes, in the 1600s it was normal for women to wear big dresses, however wearing one now would be described as 'weird'.

Normality is constantly changing.

Normal is different for every group, while one group may accept one thing as normal another group may find it strange or unacceptable.
