Normal is the most common, nothing more really.

Normal Synonyms: accustomed, acknowledged, average, commonplace, conventional, customary, general, habitual, mean, median, methodical, natural, orderly, ordinary, popular, prevalent, regular, routine, run-of-the-mill, standard, traditional, typic, typical, unexceptional
Antonyms: abnormal, irregular, odd, strange, uncommon, unconventional, unusual
Exactly. Going by what he is saying: Being female isn't normal since it is not what the majority of us are (given that the world population is >50% male).
