Deviance

A behavior that violates


significant social norms and is
negatively valued by a large
number of people relative to
time, place, and culture
A way of defining abnormality
by seeing it as something that
goes against the norms or
standards of the society in
which the individual lives

There is no such thing as a value-free


concept of deviance; to say
homosexuals are deviant because
they are a statistical minority ... is, in
practice, to stigmatize them. Nuns are
rarely classed as deviants for the
same reason, although if they obey
their vows they clearly differ very
significantly from the great majority of
people - Dennis Altman

Every crime is born of necessity. If
you want less crime, you must change

contrary to law, and becomes a
criminal.
