    Some people feel bad about themselves and others talk about them because they haven't done things that most people have, like I have a friend who is 32 and still not had sex or met the right guy as she's not really been looking and is probably the most extreme introvert you could get she's hardly been out socialising at night. She's good at running and is very physically fit though. I don't know why people talk about her 'abnormalities' as she could meet someone soon or later in life, nothing's permanent so why do people feel pressure..

    Erm your post doesn't make sense you ask why people feel pressure to be normal and then say that people talk about her being abnormal. I would say that evolutionary wise people would form tribes and being ostracised from the tribe would be bad so people have an inherent desire to fit into their culture/religious community or whatever. Also people tend to notice/victimize people who are different from themselves.

    Multi-billion pound industries are built upon exploiting insecurity - cosmetics, diet, fitness, plastic surgery -- gotta keep up the pressure.

    There is really no point to want to be normal, it sounds silly but advertising can do silly things to perception as well.

    This sounds like a rant. I honestly don't know what you want us to tell you. That being abnormal is normal?
