Which raises the question of a-symmetry here? I don't know which genetic
traits reside on the X (other than hemophilia problems), but would not there
be a tendency for a girl to be more genetically influenced concerning such X
traits by her paternal grandmother than by either of her maternal
Are there any common, garden variety phenotypic attributes that conventional
wisdom and folklore point to as examples of this "special connection"
between a girl and her paternal grandmother?
