I was pretty sure there are more males than females in China.
The same prinicble applies. If people could choose the gender in China (I know it's not gonna happen) the genders should balance out going on the premis that people would not all choose the same gender.
(Plus there are trillions of "Femals" in China
After all, procedures to choose the gender of a child-such as ones that they may already have in effect-tend to be quite expensive.
If there is massive numerical gender unbalance then the goverments can lower costs on the procedure.
Once choice of gender is more available (increase in the technology makes it cheaper, like plastic surgery) then such preasure to produce specific gender children would be aliviated.
Also, where do you get this? I have heard of males suffering from not having an alternative Y chromosome, but never of a Y chromosome being "crappy". After all, is there is a deficiency in the genetic code, a female has more alternatives with her XY chromosome, but a male is stuck with the same XX chromosome. If there is something wrong with his X, he cannot make up for the deficiency with a Y.
DAMNIT! I passed biology, I should have know XX is male. Plainly I was stupid again.
An old biology teacher said the X
chromosone was deteriating over the generations and perdicted it would eventually lead to far more women than men.
Sorry for the mix up , I'm getting stupider with eah day it seems
Anyway (cop out ahead!) I'm more intersted in the unsual possabilities given with designer babies.
Having seen a documentary on it afew years ago and with the infomation that scientits had made a pig with the "florescence" gene from some kinda jellyfish, is it not possible to give humans characteristics normally found in animals?
