Jhilmil asked my sister if mothers carried the female baby and fathers carried the male baby in their womb. This got me thinking. Imagine a world where either the man or woman would carry the child depending on the sex of the baby. I could ask my colleague-'so who is carrying the child' and if she already has a son and the again father is carrying I could say- sheesh thats too bad'. Men would have morning sickness, bloat, go on paternity leave etc.. Men and women would start understanding each other better. There might not be any incidence of female infanticide. This is under the assumption that men would start understanding the pains and pleasure of bearing a child and would protest again killing of the female child.

Life could have been made lot more interesting this way. Maybe the maker does not have a good sense of humour.

It would be nice to know the possibilities arising out of this. Do reply with ur comments :-)

Liked the thought. I can't agree with you more on this kind of creation. It is very funny to just imagine fathers taking their sons to hospitals, just like mothers do all the time. The way current creation has been done leaves me nothing but presume the maker as male soul.

On the contrary, all the credit of one's success is often attributed to mother not father. As said by a famous person 'No influence is so powerful as that of the mother'. Why would mothers want to share that credit with fathers.

Apart from all the good things eventually happen by this kind of creation, the one year paternity leave appeals more to men like me :).

That would be a real turn of events no doubt.. not sure if it would be interesting.. being the women I am - a mother of 2 child (a boy and a girl).
However, the documentaries I see/read regarding female infanticide is often done by the fairer (cant take pride) sex though. Not sure of its authenticity. May be the male who is devoted to support the family does not take it serious and ultimately being a route cause for female infanticide. Should I fret that we are dependent (not me though) or should I support women hood?

Nice posts btw from you.
