Americans Prefer Boys?

So, yeah, girls can get pregnant. But your son can get a girl pregnant. Does that make you less responsible for the baby? I don't know. This article is interesting, especially since it comes with a pretty convincing statistic. It's a little scary to think that people would choose the sex of their babies, thereby creating an unequal population where it's impossible for women to meet men and make more children. I think maybe the preference for boys is due to the gender roles that society chooses for children. Girls will be too emotional and sensative. Boys will like sports and be tough. Or maybe that's not it at all. Enjoy!

I find it hard to believe that people anywhere were prefer boys. I have three beautiful girls that are my treasure. I would not trade them for anything. When the girls were younger, people would always ask me where my boys were. My joke was, "I gave them away."; that was my joke until my youngest asked who I gave them to and could we go visit them. I had alot of explaining to do.
