Why normal people are hideous

How can women disrupt male speech domination?
#2

The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.

:wink:

Already looking forward to the stabilised Bigfoot video!

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.

I’d wager he’s correct.


#7

Are the exceptions still “normal” then?


#8

“Normal” people imprison those “mentally ill…”

Not since about 1980, old-timer.


#9

Now they just leave them on the streets to fend for themselves, just as Darwinism* intended.

*OK, so it was Herbert Spencer who was the eugenicist who came up with “Survival of the fittest”, but most people don’t remember that


#10

When risks of mental health trauma from coercive systems are normal then behaviors symptomatic of trauma are more often normalized.

I like how that rolls off the tongue.


#11

Oooooo! I want to see that one again.


#12

Well, in all fairness, it is a re-post!

:stuck_out_tongue:


#13

“Normal” people are boring.
Lucky for me I know very few boring people.
Happy Mutants all.

Normal people bake bread and make tortillas and go to work. Over and over.

Normal people aren’t sure why things are the way they are. Why they’re getting screwed. They might try to make things better or sink into selfishness, solipsism, or blind faith. Or just focus on what’s around them.

(Normal people probably see a lot of wisdom in the Serenity Prayer.)

Normal people are disappointed much of the time, but they usually keep at it anyways.

Normal people are probably “fixers,” not “makers.”

Normal people often try their best and often fail no matter how hard they try.

Normal people can be boring or infuriating. But some of them have enough empathy to keep from calling others “hideous,” and enough humility to avoid smug self-satisfaction.

I like normal people a lot more than I used to.

Normal people got no reason
Normal people got no reason
Normal people got no reason
To live

They got normal hands
And normal eyes
And they walk around
Tellin’ great boring lies
They got normal noses
And regular straightened teeth
They wear shoe-store shoes
On their nasty normal feet

Well, I don’t want no normal people
Don’t want no normal people
Don’t want no normal people
Round here

Normal people are just the same
As you and I
(A fool such as I)
All men are brothers
Until the day they die
(It’s a wonderful world)

Normal people got nobody
Normal people got nobody
Normal people got nobody
To love

They got typical legs
And they stand so low
You got to pick ‘em up
Just to say hello
They got normal boring cars
That got beep, beep, beep
They got bland voices
Goin’ peep, peep, peep
They got grubby normal fingers
And dirty boring minds
They’re gonna get you every time
Well, I don’t want no normal people
Don’t want no normal people
Don’t want no normal people
’Round here

Show me a few classic ‘banana to scale’ shots and I’m good.


#17

Dang normals - let’s get them! Who’s with me?


#18

mmm-hmmm

but who crafts the messages messaging that get thee mobs together?


#19

Honestly, the article seems a bit pretentious. Normal people are the ones who blindly follow the crowd and cause the trouble in the world, not open minded thinkers like me:

The fact is, weirdos are often part of the mob (and sometimes leading it) and normal people are often the ones who show empathy and conviction, because that’s how they were taught. We are also much more normal than we think (with the good and bad things that this entails), and a failure to see the complexity of other people’s experience is not a good sign.

It occurs to me that the sort of person who excoriates ‘normal’ people in this manner is probably convinced that they, in stark contrast, are a special, unique and delicate flower, unwilling to seek common ground with others.
