Henry VIII decapitated Ann Bolin because she did not produce a male heir to the throne, the Jesuit Mendol showed the male carries the gene to determine sex of the offspring. Since hundreds of sperm reach the egg and the egg allows only one to enter and not always the first can we finally conclude the Henry was right? ie that the female may play the major role to determine the sex of the offspring?
Re: Since the Egg 'lets' in a sperm, isn't sex determined by the female?
