"Normal is a setting on a washing machine", normal has nothing to do with people. People come in every variety, more than we can ever imagine, greater than we will ever know. Unfortunately people who are different make other people uncomfortable and even afraid. Why are they afraid? We are often afraid of things we do not understand or who do not fit our definitions. Unfortunately, we don't like to be afraid and so we see these things/ people as abnormal, different, wrong. If people were allowed/ exposed to others who were different from themselves, they would gain knowledge and comfort. This sounds like a good reason for inclusion doesn't it?
