Normal is a Dryer Setting

I've written before about the idea of "normal." I believe it's an arbitrary concept, because what might be normal for you wouldn't necessarily be normal for me. And yet, we use the word all the time. Sometimes in seemingly innocuous ways, and other times in ways to imply that those who do not meet our standards are deficient and lesser.

It's not ok. Seriously. We have to do something about it. I'm just honestly not sure what it is. Although I am pretty sure working to shape a culture of inclusion helps.

Humor might help, too. I can't be the only one that enjoys a good poke at normal.

What are your thoughts about the concept of normal?
