Particular male genes.

Thought I would clear that up though I thought my second post was rather clear on that point.

" cause male genes to predominate. " Makes little sense in sexually reproductive organisms with sex linked traits and a XX, XY gamete distribution. Still, averaged out over many children certain males would be better represented than others with some not represented at all.
