    I always get called "weird" which I really don't mind at all because I feel that everybody is unique in their own way and if that uniqueness is considered "weird" so be it because I wouldn't change my personality even if I could. What I want to know is would you consider yourself as "normal" and if you aren't what makes you different.

    No, I don't consider myself "normal". My life experiences and who they've made me set me apart, I think. I grew up well before my time. Like you, I don't consider this a negative thing at all

    Nope, and I'm happy that I'm not 'normal'. It's over rated.

    This normal/weird thing always comes up and the general consensus is 'who would want to be normal, yay for being weird' but I think its a bit more complicated than that.

    There's being a kooky, interesting person who looks at things a bit differently and then there's being weird. As in you are hard to get along with, do things that make people feel uncomfortable in social situations etc.

    'Normal' is also a dodgy concept. What actually makes someone 'normal'?

    I've never thought of myself much as normal, which I tend to think is a good thing. It's like 'normal' but 'better'.

    I think I'm normal...but other people say I stand out. I don't mind either way to be honest

    I think everyone's outwardly appearance is "normal" but the "weird" part is the goings on in our head.

    That's maybe why we are under the impression we are different from everyone else because we can't see inside their heads.

    But I suspect none of us are even remotely unique as we think we are. And if that's a problem just fake being bisexual or play up a non existent androgynous look.

    I found that no one interesting to talk to classifies themselves as normal!

    I don't think people necessarily mean random or weird, we're not 13 year old girls.
