So this person is proud to be uninteresting and proud of the probable denial they they are in?
I’m sickened by the fact that they consider this “normal” and yet everything else listed isn’t?
well holy fucks if that’s normal I’m the weirdest kid out there because I fit nearly 90 % of the criteria for “weird”
Hello graphic maker person, or at least, I assume you’re a person, because, if you’re not you already fall well outside the norm as it is, so, seeing as you made this graphic I’m going to assume that you’re a human like I am.
I have a question, if I may.
What is your definition of ‘normal’. How do you define it?
I can assume that you define normal as belonging to the most populous groups that you referenced.
If that is the case, then you’re not as normal as you think you are.
To be normal you’d need to be:
- Chinese in ethnicity (Han Chinese, specifically), and you have to speak Mandarin Chinese.
- Christianity is indeed the most populous religion in the world, but taking into account some of the wildly diverging beliefs held between those in the Christian faith it depends on just what type of Christian you are, or how generalised you want to get. As it is Catholicism is the largest denomination, with 1.1 billion members. In that case, both Islam and Secularism are more or as populous.
- I’m unsure how you define ‘successful’, but given the nature of the graphic, I assume you’re American, or at least live in a Western country, so, yes, you are ‘successful’ in comparison to the great majority of the worlds population. However, that means that that facet of yourself is actually abnormal by comparison to everyone, it’s more normal to be in poverty or to have a low/subsistence level income than it is to be ‘successful’.
- If you live in the Western world, odds are, you listen to ‘foreign music’ all the time, or at least a lot of the time. ‘Foreign Music’ doesn’t just mean listening to K-Pop or German Death Metal or whathaveyou, Foreign Music, by definition, would be any music produced by an artist/group that doesn’t reside in your country of residence/origin. The Western world is very connected, meaning you can be listening to a musician that makes music in England, while you’re sat in America.
- It’s great that you’re heterosexual, and that you’re so sure of that, but while most of the world identifies as being heterosexual don’t assume that is actually normal even by your definition. I mean, a FtM transgendered person who is attracted to women could also, quite rightly, call themselves Heterosexual. Based on the tone of your graphic, you’d probably be the first person to call them abnormal for stating that about themselves.
I’ll skip addressing the rest, mostly because I’m too lazy to address them, and get to my point.
I’m an (Agnostic) Atheist; a nerd; could be considered weird (or a freak, I suppose, since they’re synonymous in this case), but I don’t really consider myself to be that strange; I listen to ‘foreign music’ as a matter of course, or, at least, music made by people that don’t live in my home country; I don’t pretend to be awkward, I bloody well am awkward; and I am a loner, as evidenced by the fact that the only friends I have exist as pixels on my computer screens.
I think I’m relatively normal and certainly not that interesting.
See what I did there?
I equated my attributes to be normal and applied them to myself. You don’t ‘get’ to be normal simply because you say so. You’re you, and I’m me. We’re all unique (and no, not in a special snowflake sort of way).
It’s our commonalities that bring us together, and it’s our differences that set us apart, and yet it’s those differences that should be celebrated.
Because, I mean, it’d be terribly boring if everyone was white, christian, successful, ‘normal’, heterosexual and proud.
