    Wow that's truly amazing? I'm so dumb, I thought sperm determined the sex of the child?
    If I have sex with a gentle faced man I'm more likely to have a girl. excellent, thanks : )

    Fair enough, and good attitude. Not what I expected, as most people I've come across who say I want a boy/girl have ridiculous expectations
    about how they want their child to be.. Almost to the point of having a blueprint of the child's life.

    It's believed pre-natal hormones in early stages of fetal development will determine physical sex, and in later weeks, gender identity when the brain is developing..
    And, as always, socialisation / environment play a part.

    I believe that we should all be mindfull on how many children we have. I have 2 boys and do not want anymore. We are bringing up our children in a world that is getting harder for the earth to sustain. Be blessed with what you are able to birth be that male or female. would you have stopped having children if you had 2 boys and a girl? Or did you keep going until you had a girl after so many boys?

    ok, i failed to completely clarify, apologies. The primary author of the study was a Mr. Satoshi Kanazawa, PhD, in the Journal of Theoretical Biology;
    volume 239 Issue 4 pages 450-459,
    volume 233 issue 4 pages 589-599, and
    volume 235 issue 4 pp. 583-590 amongst others if anyone is bothered looking it up.

    And yes, as the journal title suggest it IS theoretical, as in it entertains the idea/hypothesis and aims to prove/disprove it with a debatable outcome, much like evolution is (yes, i may have opened a can of worms here but so be it). It may be a "load of crap" (because as i said, debatable theory) but i do do my research before posting.

    Seems like a total waste of money to me personally. But if its that important to a person, why not?
    As was mentioned earlier, we have a world in which we use science to choose all sorts of things (both important and not so important)... nose shape, boob size, whether someone in a coma lives or dies, curing those with life threatening diseases, IVF and it goes on and on.
    Personally I wasn't bothered whether I had a girl or a boy, I ended up with my little girl and was thrilled. I dont want anymore kids so trying for any particular sex next isnt an issue for me. But in this day and age where everyone is guilty of something 'unnatural' in their lives, I dont think its anyones place to criticize someone for wanting to select the gender of their child if its really that important to them.

    If it's what someone wants then sure they can go for it. Personally though, i think a better option would be to adopt a kid of the sex they want.

    My mum has been happy to accept that I'm not very feminine, lipstick is as girly as I get. My brother was more girly than me when he was a kid haha.

    people need to understand that in scientific terms if it says its a theory that means there have been loads and loads of evidence and trails regarding it and it is widely accepted by the scientific community

    Maybe you could arrange to swap a couple of boys with a couple who have all girls.

    I as many of you know have 6 boys and whilst i love everyone of them dearly i am bloody ****** off that i missed out on a girl. I am not dissapointed having six sons i am simply dissapointed that i dont have a daughter.
    I feel for the couples that cant have children infact my heart breaks 4 them BUT it doesnt chnge the way i feel!

    If i had a spare 30 g i would def have played with nature 2 have my pink one.

    Ok now off u go start telling me how i should be greatful that i can even have kids and maybe even abuse me....i dont care because that how i feel.

    if i had a crack at this, i'd say it's tendency, not 100% certainty, but meh, i'm no expert at this. Another quick search shows several hypothesis' that aim to debunk that theory anyway

    i think where there is a big chance you will pass along some genetic problem to a child of one sex then you should do all you can not to carry that sex to term, i mean its really not fair on the child is it?

    i know of a lady who has some condition which seems to affect the males of her family and she keeps having kids without testing their sex, i could NEVER carry a boy to term knowing he could have a medical condition that made his life almost unbearable from day one and would require a lot more medical intervention then if i had a girl

    i know these children are loved but is it really fair on them? its ok when your still around to take care of them but then why must their siblings turn their lives around to take care of a sick brother? yes im sure their sisters love them so very much too but i dont think they should have to take responsibility possibly at the detriment of their own families and or lives

    plus if these families dont have private health cover the costs are covered by the public purses which are already struggling under so many pressures for so little funding dollars

    as for people paying to get a baby of a sex of their choice it simply comes down to, their money their choice mind your own business
