that would be an interesting turn of fate. It's kind of funny because many gay kids come from strict conservative homes that prob think like that. Sometimes i wonder if it's nature poking fun at parents and their prejudices.
I wonder what the poll would be if it was a gay son vs daughter. I wonder how many straight guys and girls here would change their tune.

The difference is, children in those cultures are required to do manual labour from a young age in order to help the family make a living, so guys are preferred. Here, we don't need children for that.
That isn't actually the reason for preference of boys. It's because in those cultures, it is at the boy's house that the parents live when they become old. Essentially, if they have a girl, she is expected to go the husband's family and live there, leaving the parents with no safety net in old age. Whereas if they have a boy, the parents can stay with him, and remain in the family
