    Hotter ladies = More daughters?

    Primal Fuel
    I found this interesting and slightly amusing. I gotta say, i welcome the idea of having daughters.

    Weird article considering the sex of a baby is determined by the father, not the mother. No suggested mechanism behind this (do attractive women somehow attract men with more/better female sperm than male sperm? LOL)

    Sounds to me like the guy is trying to stir up some publicity. As the article notes 'beauty' changes over time and some ugly kids become beautiful adults and vice-versa. And there is always the 'in the eye of the beholder' factor.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    My only child is a girl, and I am pretty plain. I think that on average you are more likely to have a girl anyway, no?

    actually that isn't true. your cervix picks the sperm it allows in.
    i have two daughters.

    Most species tend to produce more females, because it just makes good evolutionary sense, honestly.
    I jsut thought it was amusing that he picked being attractive in any sense as the main correlation.

    I have 2 boys, so I'm going to assume (for my own ego's sake) that the guy that wrote the article is full of crap and hates his own beautiful mother, hence the snarky crap he wrote to get back at her.
