It's relatively normal, yes. It's not uncommon to think being the opposite sex might be better.

I am aware of the downsides of being a female, I just wanted to vent something quite personal about how I feel, to know if it's not just me that experiences this if that's okay with you

Having menses is not downside if you have it painless. Also, modern hygiene products make life of women are much easier than it was in not that distant past.

Could u expand on your reasons for this? I always think men have it easier. Fertility wise, career planning wise, menstruation, pregnancy, sexism, feeling unsafe, the world being designed for men. 😛 would like to hear ur opinion

Yeah, I've been curious before about being a female and sometimes thought it'd perhaps been better, but I've never seriously thought about whether I'm transgender, and any thoughts about it at all were quickly dismissed. I'm alright being a male.

If this is a recurring thought I'd recommend trying exploring gender presentation just to see how it feels - This is exactly the thing of thing I thought about a lot before I realised I was trans. Though this isnt to say you are, but no harm can come from a little experimentation just to see how it feels ^_^

oof
I know a medical explanation probably isn't what you're looking for, but i'll try my best to explain it both scientifically and informally.
Essentially, the difference between how one percieves oneself and how they present themselves to others. Some people, myself included, feel that they aren't in the right body. Sometimes this can result in a mental illness called Gender Dysphoria - essentially meaning extreme discomfort resulting from presenting as a gender you don't feel you are, however it's important to remember it doesn't always cause Gender Dysphoria, and that's also OK and valid.
Funny thing is, most people who experience this are feminists, and are aware of the prejudice/oppression women experience on the daily, but the logical disadvantages can't contend with the feeling.
OP, if you want to look for people accepting of you, who accept those who feel they aren't the gender they were assigned at birth but don't experience intense negative emotions because of it, i recommend looking for "tucute" or "anti-transmed" communities.

I love the way a woman can Express herself as masculine or feminine and for it to still be accepted (mostly) by society, which is the main reason I think I have these fealings as I want to express this feminine side of myself without repercussion. also I love the way girls interact in relationships like they can always hug their girlfriends, I feel I cant unfortunately with my male friends. In addition I would love to get a bunch of free drinks from just sitting in a bar. the list goes on I cant give more reasons if you like. However I have to disagree with some of what you said, considering the rate for regular assault is higher for men and that I'm quite small I still feel unsafe walking alone at night, and surprisingly pregnancy is something that I that I think would be amazing to experience. sure childbirth sucks but your actually holding a whole new life inside you- how cool is that! and about the world being designed for men... we just had a female prime minister and the majority of major political parties are headed by women... designed by men? I dont think so otherwise why would they let them into that position? career planning wise yes especially considering women essentially have a 'biological clock'on when they cant have kids yeah that sucks and I have already addressed my feelings on menstruation earlier.

I feel the same but sometimes I feel like I'm missing out on my parts of my life because I'm not a female
