YY is a common mutation and doesn't cause much noticeable change in a female. Most never know

Hey.  Stop reading.  The post is over.

I think you mean XY. Currently, AFAIK, human beings with YY chromosomes cannot survive (for very long, at least).

^ That's the way I remembered it too. The Y chromosome is smaller than the X, and its major purpose is to define and "kickstart" the development of male features and, I think, most of its genes are responsible for sperm production. As far as I know, there are biological mechanisms that cause the X chromosome to be able to compensate for their missing "partner" chromosome, so that males aren't impaired by the lack of a second X. In females, the second X is mostly "shut down", so that naturally, only one X is responsible for the genes it carries.

 

I'm sorry if it's a bit vague, but I can't explain it better in English. I guess there are more knowledgeable folks on here that can do a better job at it.


"All scientific advancement due to intellegence overcoming, compensating, for limitations. Can't carry a load, so invent wheel. Can't catch food, so invent spear. Limitations. No limitations, no advancement. No advancement, culture stagnates. Works other way too. Advancement before culture is ready. Disastrous."

There's definitely truth in that...

Maybe I was wrong. Sex chromosome mutations are real and sometimes not harmful. Maybe I was thinking of Y0 only one Y chromosome. Can't remember what my professor said exactly

I was taught in biology at school that (currently) it is impossible for a child to be born with YY chromosones. It's either XX or XY.

XYY, XXY, XYYY and Incomplete Y on XY. That's from Wikipedia, but I thought I remembered him saying Y0 is possible.
