The Blonde One Was Called Freedom

… Define ‘Normal’

Someone this week told me that I have a strange “type”. Specifically, I was told that my “‘type’ is not normal.” I found that statement peculiar.

nor·mal/ˈnôrməl/

Adjective:
Conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.

First, who wants to live an average, expected life?

Second, at this point in time, what really defines a normal versus an alternative look? Tattoos, dreadlocks, piercings… these are all pretty mainstream compared to twenty years ago.

All the same, I’d like to take a moment to appreciate that you can be gorgeous in an unconventional way. Externally speaking, I think all these people look lovely. And they’re probably beautiful on the inside, too.

John Butler

Tom Hardy probably doesn’t count, because I find him attractive bald, bearded, with a ponytail, tatted up, suited up, wearing a pink skirt.. etc.

Tommy Helm

Anthony Kiedis

Dreadlocked Lenny Kravitz

John Frusciante

Ami James

Brandon Boyd

I mean, whatever. To each their own, I suppose. I’ll just work harder to care less when people tell me I’m abnormal. It’s better than being a dull person, right?
