As an extremely normal person I can tell you that being normal is quite ok.

    eh?
    I think all of that labeling shit is subjective.
    I think that sitting on my ass playing video games and watching anime is normal, but most people would call me a loser for that. So who knows. People that forcibly try to be abnormal just fit into their own stereotype anyway.

Normal - A fantasy believed by some to make them perceive themselves above others.
Not Normal - What we all really are.

You mean abnormal?

I think it all comes down to the percentage of the population you're looking at and what is typical of them. If a large percentage does a certain thing or displays a certain trait, that trait or thing is normal to that population.

What "large percentage" means to you might vary. 50% probably won't work, since that means if 45% of people are a certain way, that isn't normal, which seems sort of inaccurate, so the percentage is probably lower. 20% might be somewhere in the ballpark for me in this scenario.

The size of the percentages in comparison to one another also matter. Let's say 21% of people are a certain way, 20% are another way, 23% are another way, and 28% are yet another way. The remaining 8% might be considered abnormal to some. But the problem is if there are several small percentages, like 1%, 2%, 3% that add up to 100%. It gets sort of cloudy there.

All in all, I think it depends on your starting point of what normal is supposed to be.

Normality or abnormality don't necessarily mean good or bad things. They merely refer to what is common or uncommon. You can be normal in an unacceptable, bad way, and you can be abnormal in a sensible way.

Depends to what extent you mean. Most people are rather normal, even those who would call themselves strange. For example, it's 'normal' to sit at a chair. It's not normal to stand on that chair on one leg and then crap yourself. I don't mind people who are normal with a few slightly awkward or strange quirks; I'm one of those people, and many have said quirks, but it's quite hard to sum up since when it comes to what is and isn't normal there's room for so much in-between, and what is/isn't normal can also vary from person to person. Someone could say 'not normal' and be referring to someone eating cornflakes with orange juice, while someone else would be referring to an asylum inmate. It's a very broad question in which you really need to define what you're classifying as what if you want accurate answers.

I'd prefer to be normal.
Just the sake for making things more easier for me & be more carefree.
I feel being "not normal" is too romanticized.

Both are fine, but people/things who aren't considered normal have a hard time being accepted. And the normal people/things have a much easier time.

It depends on what the person would like to do or be in the world if they wanna be either normal or not normal. Being normal can be a benefit for some and not being normal can be a benefit some too.

In my opinion anyway.

Its a difficult one. I have known people that have described themselves as abnormal but you would never be able to work out why, and others that on the surface fitted the perceived view of normality while being anything but.
Bottom line we are all different, its what we decide to show to the world that gets the label of normal/abnormal.

I'm a weirdo. Not in the egotistic kind of way. I'm not any better than 'normal' people, I know many that think they are though.

Normal or abnormal. Doesn't matter. It's all the same.

When you stop attempting to match the herd, you become the shepherd who cannot even feign the language of sheep. Yet sheep are no less and the shepherd no more.

Everybody is trying to be "not normal" today. So that the "new" normal is a fake "not normal".

You don't want to go down the rabbit hole Alice.

Being yourself is the most normal thing you can do.
Being yourself is the most irregular thing you can do.
Be something.
Be you.
