Any idea why that is? What is it in the formation of boys that makes it more likely that they will develop congenital problems in general?


I mean it's not likely their massive egos cause problems right from conception, so it has to be something else.


(And for our humour deficient readers -- the first two sentences are serious, the third one is not.)

You mean our planet may someday be ruled by a race of amazon women right out of some 50's science fiction film?

Far out man.

I would assume it depends on whether they are including X-linked chromosomal defects in those statistics. In which case it would be rather obvious why boys are more often affected.

If we exclude those, then that's a different story.

On a side note, our lecturers tell us off in class for using North American spelling of haemophilia....they have issues with epinephrine and the like as well...even though half our reading list are American textbooks.

Why is it that FG constantly makes these ridiculous baseless attacks on the "left" or "FYM" but when I call him out on it, I'm the one that gets warned?

On the bright side, since it's affecting men now, we might actually start caring about ending pollution, instead of worrying as to whether it will affect corporate profits. After all, it took fear of AIDS spreading to whites before we actually cared about trying to treat and cure it--hence why malaria, an easily treatable disease, is horrendously neglected in the third world.
