No, I'm the child of the father.
I've always wondered about that expression... How can you be persuaded to be male or female? (ignoring trans-gender surgery)
When does this persuasion take place - is it a negotiation between egg and sperm? Does someone persuade an X or Y carrying sperm to impregnate the egg?
Or does someone persuade the stork to bring a male or female baby?
This is all very confusing!
