Normalcy has many definitions— probably as many as there are people in this world.
Recently, I heard a statement: Anything or anyone can be normal no matter how bizarre or extreme, you just have to get used to it.
In some societies female infanticide is normal, in others cannibalism used to be normal, in some societies equality between men and women is normal, in others, patriarchy or matriarchy. For a thief, stealing is normal, for a priest, praying is normal.
Should we define normalcy? What are the advantages of defining it? Disadvantages? Is there something that is normal for you, and is completely abnormal for someone else?
Is ‘normalcy’ the name for ‘what we’re used to’— if not, then what is ‘Normal’?
