Gender of baby - Modern times

Recommended Posts

This is in no way favoring one over the other as any child is a blessing regardless of gender. 

However pureley out of curiosity are more daughters being born then sons in recent times? I remember going back with the first generation that arrived in the UK.  Those families seem to have had alot more sons then daughters. But when I look these days. It seems the opposite has occured many more daughters are being born then sons. 

Could this be some kind of environmental factors or just plain natures choice? 

Could it be related to peoples diet, nutrition exercise??

From an evolutionary perspective, humans will produce more boys during times of stress (eg famine, war etc) because survival of the race is important; and more girls during times of rest (lots of food, relaxation) to allow more reproduction and increase the population. 

Given that the man determines the sex of the child, there have been thoughts that modern lifestyle has caused damage to men: contraceptive pill is present in drinking water, plastics and chemicals are having an oestrogenic effect, and there had been a drop in sperm quality of men.

diet has a big effect imo.

foods r more salty, spicy, sweet etc now than ever. so our bodies r naturally gna become more acidic. dnt how much of this is offset by the green veg/salad we eat tho. but even that will have different condiments on it.

the west seems to believe female sperm r stronger swimmers so theyre better suited to thrive in these conditions. whereas male ones supposedly prefer it alkaline so more healthy food n nutrition is required i.e. lots of potassium from bananas, almonds to increase rate of suvival.

The war thing could be true. I live in an area with alot of tamils who came from war torn sri lanka. Ive noticed many have more boys then girls. 

That is one thing im careful about. Plastics and food contamination. It is known for chemicals to go into food. Such as cling film wrapped around foods. 

Causing hormonal changes and other negative health effects. 

I think one thing could possibly explain it. 

New generation live inactive lifestyles. No excerise. Eat processed frozen foods. This can affect the sperm quality as maybe their tostestrone is low. So can affect gender of offspring. 

Older generation only ate fresh food and were more active. 

All in all not sure what exact cause is? But definantly a combination of factors  at play causing and imbalance in the gender of today's generation.

Not sure if diet is a big factor to be honest in determining gender. Although eating healthy and excersing and keeping away from alcohol/other intoxicants can only be good for the building blocks of life. 

What I read is that is largely due to genetics to a certain degree. Ie if you your father had alot of sons then you will also have alot of male offsping.But if he had alot of daughters then you will also have more chance of a having female childeren.  Its passed down.

my nani had 5 boys n all but one of em had a son first n then a girl. one had 3 sons altogether. my nana lived an active lifestyle n ate healthily.

but someone from work is one of 4 or 5 brothers no sisters n he ended up having 6 girls before finally havin a boy. hes obese n smokes. so u wud think his chances wudve decreased even more over time.

if we look at guru sahibaan, all but one had child n at least one son. from guru ram das ji onwards, all but one was born male.

agree that genetics r the major factor in the determining the sex in the same way it mostly determines our height, weight, facial features etc.

ultimately its wat the creator decides.

Karma is a balancing force apparently. If that is true then humanity (Punjabis in particular ) are due a glut of female babies due to the millions that have been 'selectively' aborted or killed over the years.

not just Punjabis tbh  other northern states like haryana, rajasthan and uttar pradesh also have a high rate of selective aborting. In fact i think haryanas is even higher than Punjab.    

tbh north indian culture is fkced up!   rough culture, everything is based around honor, caste system is also a lot worse in the north than in the south.   Rajasthan has the highest rate of violence against women than any other state in India. Drug and alcohol problems in the northern states as well. 

no wonder south india is progressing faster.   

the culture and mentality of the north western states seems to be similar to our neighbor. 

I think the reason the northern states are like that is because they were under foreign occupation for a 1000 years. being oppressed and suffocated for a 1000 years made the whole population depressed, anxious and live in fear,  there was no space or freedom to develop a sophisticated culture. to develop a culture you need freedom of expression and dignity which was denied by the foreigners that ruled the northern regions. The muslim invasion hardly had much influence in the south.   North indian mentality is deeply routed   its not just a coincidence.

It would be interesting to know about the use of alcohol during the invasions. its not surprising that the local men started drinking heavily during the 1000 years of invasion     alcohol probably was used as a get away while living in anxiety and constant fear for centuries.    

all of this is very deep routed stuff

If female foeticide is a real problem in Punjab would there not be a shortage of brides that the bride's family would call the shots.

Schools would be complaining of there being no girls in the schools.

I have heard this trope for the last 30 years. 

Not buying it.

    • Perhaps this is the key to the root cause of it all ? What does he think won't change ?  What if you or your wife feign a disease ? Will he come if his mom pretends she's on bed suffering with something ?  Basically something that will bring him back to home and let him stick there atleast for a few weeks , giving you and your wife time to mend the relationships and break the ice

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m sharing this because there maybe someone who has experienced similar anguish or as a warning to look out for. Perhaps a snapshot of a British born kid with Punjabi heritage and some Sikhi values tried to be instilled.  Upon reflection I was a more hands on Dad than my father was and yet I still feared and respected him. I believe that I may have been more informal and given greater freedom than I had to my son. To that degree I think I may have contributed to his stupidity. When I was his age I had been tempted to act out as he is doing now but I knew it was wrong. 3 of my peers didn’t stop and now 20 years later because of their dysfunctionality, sadly all 3 are divorced with kids run wild, health problems etc.  ‘My parents are getting fed up with his antics and I think it’s a matter of weeks before they snap and I get a call to say he’s left. He was involved in a car crash where as a passenger he was shunted from behind and had whiplash. The next evening he goes out from 10-2am and an exasperated grandmother lets him in.  ‘I went for an evening out with my family in the centre of a midlands city. As I was walking back to the car (approx 10.30pm) there was an ambulance ready with a stretcher. Just waiting. What a damning indictment that they expect carnage having seen it regularly, week after week.  That tragic tale of the 14 year old girl makes you want to weep. I realise that there may be a chance he comes to his senses but the world in which we live in has changed so dramatically I’m struggling to keep up with daily disbelief. I’ve been to 50 odd parties in the last 20 years and probably 3 out that there was a fight and today I hear it’s a regular occurrence. I see Punjabis in the midlands with turbans but a shaven beard. What idiots.  When I was about 17 there was a pretty Punjabi girl from a wealthy family at my college. There was a large presence of Muslims and Sikhs with the usual cliques and it was revealed she had a black boyfriend. He even collected her from college. Overnight she was castigated by everyone and within a few days she left and never returned. I don’t know what circumstances surrounded her life but today I don’t think nobody would raise an eyebrow.   
    • I KNOW I KNOW! Extremely old post but a link... Searchgurbani.com will answer this.  Home page, select 3 dot thing on top, click Dasam Granth, click prefered index search Punjabi or English and voila!  So far am reading Charitropakehyon, a few verses per day. 
    • When you are happy or laughing do you go asking for help? After all you are in those 'emotional states' temporarily before you are in another temporary state. They are caused by specific inputs (i.e a joke) that your 'wiring' interprets and responds to with an action like laughing, endorphin release etc. The same goes with 'anxiety' it's a product of your 'wiring' (or ego if you want to give a specific name, that voice inside your head, the me), and how it responds to stimuli / inputs. Does your eternal 'awareness' that observes the voice in your head suffer with anxiety, stress, laughter, joy etc? Nah. That was the way this fool dealt with emotions it didn't like. I (in a loose sense) just started to observe the emotions as a temporary thing that come and go, and if they deep down didn't make me better were just not welcome anymore in taking up my awareness. That voice in your head is not you. Read some Elkhart Tolle to understand a bit about that disfucntional voice in your head 
    • seems so ...maybe we can lift the good khalsa habits they have preserved and reintroduced them in our lives  such as that nitnemi attitude.
