Paper – Random acts of kindness: while most of the deviance we have discussed in this class is
considered taboo or negative, the concept of positive deviance posits people can be considered deviant in
ways that are embraced or admired by others. Conduct 5 random acts of kindness of your choosing.
Explain how these acts of kindness could be considered deviant and describe the reactions of the
recipients of the acts. Papers must be 5-7 pages double spaced and cite at least 3 sources from class
Some possible positive acts of deviance could be Robin Hood, gingers (as a statistical deviant, whereas nothing is inherently wrong with it.) Positive drug use (as a therapeutic/medical use), past nonconformity deviants, like homosexuality (they were simply fighting for their freedom.) etc.
