Apparently, Americans tend to want sons over daughters. Be honest, if you were to have a child, would you have a preference?
I'd have to say a boy, but that's because my family tends to have girls. Three generations out, I have tons of female cousins, but only a handful of boy cousins. Having some male children around would be a little exciting after visiting my relatives' houses to see naked Barbies everywhere.
Edit: But of course, any daughter of mine wouldn't be loved any less or be any less welcome than a boy.
