I believe you are the only person I know who has a definition for abnormal,it sounds right out of a Psy 101 textbook. What then is the defintion for "normal" As a mental health professional with a pierced nose I think you are forgetting cultural diversity. Hindu woman routinely pierce their noses as part of their culture. Does this then make them abnormal? Or is it ok when it is attached to cultural identity. I do not understand how SIB is compared to piercing. Am I then not competant because I made a conscious decision to pierce my nose. I also have tattoos. I am in no way shape or form intersted in mainting societal standards, are you kidding, have you looked out into the world lately? Peace to you and warm light.
PS My children as they were growing styled their hair anyway they chose. We lived through some wonderfully creative hairstyles. The point is that while others looked at them with disgust, I viewed them with admiration at their ability to creatively express themselves. WHY are we doing whatever we can to squelch peoples spirits?
