Punch that jerk in the face!! (A History/Genetics Lesson!) [Mar. 30th, 2006|06:28 am]

You know how so many cultures in the past have been set on a woman being "required" to give her husband a son, so to speak? And if she only has daughters, in many places this woman would be considered "evil" or "defective" and eventually the husband would try and knock up someone else instead?
Well, it just occurred to me (while reading my Genetics chapter, I may add) that when this happens it's completely the GUY'S fault. She ALWAYS gives an X-chromosome...she can't very well produce a Y-chromosome out of her ASS or something. She's not a guy, so she doesn't have any!! So if she keeps giving birth to girls, it's because she keeps recieving a second X-chromosome from the guy instead of a Y...which means it's completely HIS fault, and therefore in his eyes, HE should be the defective bitch for bitching HER out!!
(In conclusion...she should punch the jerk in the face and make him stop sending his daughters to the nunnery or bargaining them for land. And make him be happy with them. Not that this would ever be able to happen...but still, it should have! People are stupid.)


PS: Ugh. University admission trouble. Go figure. I'm going to try calling again now.

Don't worry, kiddo. If you can't bear me an heir, we'll adopt one, instead.

Good luck with the Kean thing. Just remember, Art. 4 Sect. 1: the full faith and credit clause. Kean, being a state university, is constitutionally obligated to honor with "full faith and credit" your California documents.

Correction: If YOU can't make an heir, we'll adopt one instead :P

And, thanks. It went pretty crappily and I'm all scared/bummed/worried about it now. Left messages at 4 different answering machines, and every living person I talked to did not know enough to correct the problem themselves, or tell me what would come of it.
Please call when you get home! I need to talk to someone to keep my worries from repeating themselves at me nonstop. I hope things are well.

two words, mitochondrial dna.

the female gene is more important than the male gene.

Well--yes, that too! Hence the reason that mothers are so damn cool. Males give nuclear DNA, and females give EVERYTHING else (including random blood/sweat/nourishment, etc) :P

Small numbers of mitochondria do sometimes get transported in the sperm, but not often.

I learned this back in high school, because I'm a geek :)
We were never taught it, but I learned it anyways.
