First of all what does it mean by being ‘abnormal’. Any behavior far away from the set codes of behavior is abnormal. The actions and ideas which are in contrast opposition to the set standards of society and question its predominating ideology and living are considered abnormal. Some strange behaviors actually make the society to think on their long prevailing set standards and subsequently have the power to create a milieu of rebel.
