I got in a full blown raging argument with some idiot on Instagram about this the other day. You can’t see the sexes characteristics for a few weeks but it’s literally determained when your conceived.

But it makes me think about how cool the X chromosome is.

Because a woman is born with all her eggs and they’re created whilst her mother is pregnant with her, determained from the moment she’s conceived.

She carries those eggs with her her whole life, and may even choose to never use one.

If she gets pregnant and has a daughter, her body constructs the eggs and uterus that her daughter will one day use. And that X chromosome that’s given to her daughter through the sperm, can only come from her male partners mother. All that information contained in that X was the egg that was the foundation that built his body.

Sperm regenerates every few days, women are born with their eggs, when your pregnant with your daughter you create the foundation of your granddaughters. When the sperms X is passed along it’s passed from that same egg that was carried inside of a woman, from when she was inside her mother until she had her son.

Everytime I start thinking about it I fall down a big woo woo spiritual hole of just how cool and matriarchal we are.

I do, too. I think its phenomenal that my life technically started when my grandmother was carrying my mother
