A few weeks ago, Unilever announced they will stop using the word “normal” on their beauty products and advertising as part of their positive beauty vision. Normality is a social construct based on subjective standards, and we should try to change that. After reading up on their announcement (which you can check out on the bottom of this post), I was inspired to write a poem about “normality”. Hope you enjoy.

Normality. A 
concept not known in nature. 
It does not exist.
Normality. Who
says what is and not normal?
Society's fault.
Normality. A
subjective term that should not
dictate society (anymore).
