“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
Statistically, it is an abnormality. Just like left-handedness (me), red hair, blue eyes (me), genius IQ, curly hair (me), musical ability, etc. The commonality amongst all abnormalities is that they are naturally occurring variants in the animal design. Their continued existence almost counter balances their abnormality. If, for example, percentages of any abnormality were to increase or decrease it could be said that some outside influence is generating them, thereby making them "unnatural". Since, however, most statistically minority traits occur in consistent percentages of the population, it is hard to argue that they are not naturally occurring and thus, "normal."
An example of an outside influence affecting an abnormality would be diabetes, which has seen rising numbers in correlation to the increase in obesity. It occurs normally in nature, but it occurs abnormally because of an outside influence.
