Normality is not necessarily a judgment.  I would say that almost all
DDs are abnormal by virtue of giving so much time as unpaid work where
it would be easy to get paid well for similar work.  This is far from
a judgment that DDs are doing something wrong or a wish that they
would stop -- and given the context ("more than what anyone could
reasonably expect you to"), I find it hard to read the "normal people"
line above as an insult.
