THE TROUBLE WITH GIRLS IS THERE JUST AREN'T ENOUGH OF THEM: Oliver Wang offers anecdotal evidence, and asks for more evidence of that type, in support of his argument that people in our culture prefer girls as children, possibly as a reaction to the patriarchy. An interesting enough discussion topic, so anecdotal evidence should be freely admissible, but I suspect this is merely a quirk of Oliver Wang's social group and not a trend of the overall society (though it would not surprise me if some subcultures preferred one gender of the other, but on balance I suspect we're close to a 50-50 nation.)
