Why be normal?

The question Why Be Normal? is in one sense a challenge and a provocation: Why do we have to act in conformity to long established cultural models, in particular with regard to our sexual preferences? Why not be different? From another perspective is asks us to consider why we do act and desire in the ways we do, either in conformity to, or divergence from a norm. It raises the question of personal choice and the effect of social or cultural context. In the background remains the persistent idea: We are what we are born with. Personal, cultural and biological factors are increasingly seen as interweaving to create the context in which we all individually answer the question: Why Be Normal?
