an informal poll

My next assignment for introductory sociology is this:
"Select one (1) form of behavior which is defined as deviant in US society; state why it is deviant; identify and explain what you believe to be the best explanation of the selected behavior."
So my question for everyone is, what sort of deviant behavior do you think would be interesting to discuss for this assignment?  Duly noting that deviant behavior != crime.  I would actually prefer to discuss noncriminal deviance.
