Thoroughly discuss one example of behavior that was considered deviant more than 10 years ago, but today is considered conventional or normal. Why is this behavior now considered normal? Using the sociological concepts and theories from the course readings, and your own research, explain what changes in society have led to the acceptance of this once deviant behavior.
