Well it’s kind of a known fact that the big majority of men (and couples even) would prefer to have boys, not girls! At least if forced to only have one child.
Why would you want a little person that won’t grow up and be able to play football or appreciate the round butt of the babe walking in front of you by commenting it with notorious arousal?
Why would you want a fragile and soulful girl that cries while watching “Marley & Me”? Someone who shows their humanity through tears and aches with other’s pain and suffering, not worrying to hide those feelings behind a straight face, like we do?
Really! Why not having a man instead? Someone who can pee while standing and certainly won’t worry you with menstruation and unwanted pregnancies? See all the upsides of having a big boy as your kid!?
That’s immediately what we say when thinking about this. Boy or girl? Did you even notice that we always say “boy” before “girl”? Maybe it’s just because it sounds better that way. Anyway, girls are usually the second choice as we want a powerful heir to overthrone us when we’re too weak to lead and fight.
Girls will always be the delicate sissy sibling. Perhaps that’s the reason I crave girls in my future life, to help them discover the true strength behind their conspicuous weakness.
But of course we have no hand in it, and whatever comes out, will have to do and be loved. We can’t decide it and I’m conscious of it. We all are.
But if given a choice, I’d have no doubt! She would be born a girl, a pretty princess…
This because I think parenthood involves teaching and learning, loving and caring and women will always remain some sort of mystery to men’s eyes. Something we struggle to understand and fully appreciate throughout life. Men are fascinated by female nature and hungry for their big edgy hearts.
One of the most brilliant pieces of art I’ve experienced in my life so far would be a game called “The Last of Us”, along with it’s penetrating soundtrack. For me, the only game that feels real.
In its breathtaking cinematic intro, it flawlessly shows you the beautiful relation between a single father and his daughter Sarah. The sweet moments they share and how it sadly ends in a heartbreaking way, in a matter of seconds. And how, 20 years later, this broken dad, Joel, finally lives again when he meets Ellie, a brave orphan girl, who will touch his life so intensely and unexpectedly. This lucky encounter will cause him to return to being the old young guy he once was, a new man, capable of loving, and above all, of feeling like a father again.
I recommend you to watch this gameplay, at least this first scene, as it will definitely change your inner core; you will cry and feel it sink deep in your bones. Those first 15 minutes will awaken you forever. If you’re a man, you will definitely want a daughter after watching it.

Drop your bedroom blinds, close the door and enjoy this short film!
With all this said, I know I will learn a lot more by walking hand in hand with a girl, as she will lead me to see different things in different ways, from a girl’s perspective, and that’s priceless!
I want a daughter for if I love her mother, I’d want my little woman to be as similar to her mom as possible. I want to look her in the eyes and see the woman I fell in love with, her silhouette resonantly echoing in them.
I want to feel that sort of pleasure while being handed with her tiny life to guide and protect.
This kind of love motivates us to be the best dads we can possibly be, by feeling at peace when playing with dolls alongside our baby girls.
