I have had a theory about who has boys and who has girls. It's pretty much anecdotal, but I have some scientific data that backs it up.

A WARNING BEFORE YOU READ! None of these traits are "bad" or "good" and are not meant to offend anyone. Any if taken to an extreme could be negative. but most are neutral.

It seems that woman who have sons, or a preponderance of sons, share the following traits - more assertive, tend to be the "leader in the relationship, driven to success, dominant, and tend to chose more passive partners. They are also more interested in sex than their daughter breeding sisters, and more apt to have orgasms.

Women who have daughters tend to choose more dominant partners, who are often quite successful. They tend to be more submissive or passive, and somewhat less interested in sex than their son bearing partners.

Men who have sons are more passive and generally less macho. They are less competitive in general, and although they may be well educated, they are not into achievement for the sake of achievement. They are not terribly competitive or aggressive. Their relationships with women are more egalitarian. They are do not have overly high sex drives.

Men who have daughters are very competitive. They also tend to be quite successful in whatever they choose. They are dominant in their relationships with women, and very interested in women. They are more likely to have affairs (NOT ALL DO) than men who have sons. Their sex drives are quite high. They may couple with high achieving woman, but what ever their partners achieve, they will achieve more. They tend to be hyper, on the move, and interested in exploration travel and conquering new things.

My theory can also be used to chart changes with in long term relationships, and shifts in power, as with a family with 3 boys and two girls. I see the reverse more frequently.

What do you think? Please don't give me one example of one situation.

Food for thought - think of the US Presidents.

I read a LOT of biographies of U.S. presidents.

Not one of them has ever said a word about whether or not their mother had orgasms. (That's something I'd make note of.) Sorry. Research is incomplete.

Interesting thoughts...but I definitely don't agree.

And thinking of the U.S. Presidents, GWB had two daughters and so did BHO, and Clinton had one. I doubt many people would say all three have similar personalities, but of course I don't know them personally.

"I think" many repsonders will share their own experince which, is generally, ONE sitution, isn't it?

I have only daughters and my husband and I are much more closely aligned to the traits you've assigned to those who have sons, almost across the board, on every single point, including career and personality.

What about those parents who use gender selection? or Shettles Method? Does your assessment apply in the same manner?

My theory is that there is a 50% chance of either gender with any pregnancy. period.
