This isn't possible as far as I know, but how would two fully-activated X-
chromosomes affect the individual should it occur? If an extra X-chromosome in
a male, which becomes a Barr body, causes feminization, among other things with
those few extra genes, then what would happen to a female if the hundreds of
genes inactivated for compensation were, in fact, active?
