It's weird how sex is both a chromosome label and an action that creates said chromosomes. I hope this poll title made it past your work filters, I know you get sad when you can't look at all the food porn in The Kitchen.

So it seems all the vegan babies around me are male. Is that a vegan thing or a coincidence? Only a tiny poll of anonymous online people can solve this mystery. This poll has nothing to do with bathrooms.

I'm gonna go ahead and say coincidence. But maybe I'm totally misunderstanding the scope of the sample size when you say the babies around you.

I only know about 6 children (all recent) and they're all boys! Small sample size.

Even if there's any affect on sex, maybe we'd have to do a poll of only vegan fathers? It's probably up to them to determine sex.

Everyone respond. We can't really learn anything from a poll like this anyway, but I thought it'd be interesting if the PPK also seemed to have all boys (or all girls, or half, all things are interesting!). Besides, there are ways that women effect sex as well. Supposedly things like the mother eating more before conception encourages male sperm over female somehow. Maybe someone with real scientific knowledge will comment, but 20 seconds on Google suggests we don't know answers to questions like these.

I know lots of children born to dual vegan parents, and can't see any sex trend. I didn't check "other" as most of the kids are pretty young.

Seeing all the vegan babies makes me pretty hopeful about the future. I don't know any adults who were born vegan, so a generation of people who get that head start is a great sign.

I have 3 boys and they said the bun in my oven is probably a boy. But my meat-eating SIL and her meat eating husband have 4 boys, too, and I know at least 3 other sets of meat-eating parents that have 3 boys and my sister says she is the only one of her friends who has had a girl and she doesn't know any vegans other than me.

Aha! Not a vegan thing. The whole world is becoming all boys. Or as Dr. Bronner would say "Work-love-fight to make best boys-peace-soap-earth! All-boys!"

*raises hand as having a girl!*

my husband is not vegan but eats mainly vegan at home.

what i find with the sex of kids is it seems to come in waves. when i had BP EVERYONE i knew who was pregnant (i was the only vegan) and giving birth at the same time was all having girls.

then later like the next year everyone was having boys.


maybe we could start an old wives tale that eating vegan will make you have a boy child!

and they say the Y chromosone is becoming obsolete or something (thats the wrong wording but supposedly the world will be all female one day)

Well, people sure do have a tendency to perceive meaningful patterns within random data!

I have a boy. My partner is not vegan, though he eats vegan more often than not, and meat probably only a handful of times a year. His family is almost exclusively boys though- he has two brothers, and there are 13(?) kids in his generation (including him and his brothers), of which only 2 are girls. And one of those girls is adopted. So while he'd been hoping for a girl to tip the scales back just a little, we were not surprised to find out our baby was a boy.

I know there are plenty of PPKers with girl children though!

Also, I feel like alllllll the (nonvegan) new babies that I know in person are girls.

Ha ha. I sometimes feel like all the vegans I know have girls! I have two boy children, with my vegetarian partner.

I think we just tend to notice trends like these more often than when there isn't a trend. At work, the last 6 or 7 babies coworkers or their spouses had were girls. There was a lot of talk about "something in the water," but now there is finally a boy.

Occasionally people will argue that the phytoestrogens in soy might lead to feminization of boys, but there is no evidence for that.

This is really interesting! I never really thought about if it ever effected the gender, most of the vegan parents I know all have boys as well! 4 boys 1 girl. My sister is vegan (her husband no but he eats vegan as well when he's home) and she even has 2 boys with another on the way. We are thinking it's a boy because she says the pregnancy feels similar to her last 2. But who knows whether or not this is a coincidence or some crazy space voodoo thing? Im curious now.. I'll have to wait another 3 months to find the gender I guess..

I have a girl. For some reason (completely random I'm sure) it seems that babies' gender goes in swings. While I was pregnant it seemed everyone around me was having girls and now everyone I know is having a boy. My mom once told me she wasn't surprised I had a girl because my husband is in his 40s... that someone an older husband= girl baby. Another friend told me that boy sperm last longer than girl sperm. Therefore, if you do the deed very close to ovulation baby will likely be a girl. If you do the deed further from ovulation baby will likely be a boy. I think it's all hooty but interesting to hear what people come up with.

I often notice that a certain period of time at a friend's children are born of the same sex ...

Both biological parents are vegan - baby appears to have XY chromosomes!

The chromosome determiner has been vegan 2.5 years and the baby carrier 3.5 years, if that matters. :p
