No such thing as normal?

[CN: Sanism] I hear/read this comment a lot: “There’s no such thing as normal!” On one hand, the people who make that comment are correct: “Normal” is a completely socially constructed concept. What is considered to be normal varies from place to place, so “normal” isn’t a thing that objectively exists.

It’s happened again. A young woman is dead. Her mother is her murderer. Instead of widespread condemnation, media reports have focused on how the victim was a burden and the murderer was a “model mother”.
Predictably, comments about this have included the usual rhetoric about shoes, services, and every other excuse available.

Disconnect to Reconnect

I made a meme which I planned to share on my Facebook page. As I was uploading it, it occurred to me that some people might misconstrue the words.
Sometimes I do need to disconnect so that I can reconnect. This does is not because I disapprove of social media, or the way in which people use technology.
