OP, have you talked to your girlfriend about this before now? I know you've talked to her about your 'issues' but have you actually told her that you wouldn't want to have a daughter? Also, what exactly is your situation? Is she pregnant, or are you trying to conceive, or have you not even discussed having kids? How old are you both?

You must have a father and two grandfathers. They were 'born into your family'. They're just as related to you as your mother and grandmothers are.
The sex of the baby is determined by the father anyway, so your family's "trends" (for lack of a better word) won't affect the sex of the kid you (as a female) have. Similarly your mother's genes didn't determine that you're a female.
Unless I'm missing something major here? You've really baffled me and I'm no biology expert.
Grandparents on both sides - one set had a girl(auntie) and a boy(my dad)
- other set has a girl (auntie) and another girl (my mum)
bother my aunties got married so my uncles are married into the family and both sets of aunties/uncles have two children, all girls.
my mum and my dad got married and had 3 girls
so yea what i said before wasnt exactly right but either way my family is full of girls haha

Why don't you just not have children ?
Personally I'm not sure atm but I do want a boy. Women are treated badly these days in my opinion and the way a large amount of the girls I know dress and act would really upset me if I had to watch my daughter act the same way.
However I'm sure son's can do stuff that would make you just as ashamed then again I have no idea what your issue is.
In terms of your gf it may be a problem. We can't tell you because we don't know her. If my gf atm told me in five years (too young for kids right now and not sure) that she wanted to only have a certain sex of baby and had a good reason (I'd want to speak to the therapist in the situation) then I would be fine with it.
All I really care about is having a healthy baby so as long as the process of gender selection doesn't affect the health of the child I'm ok with it. I don't see it as playing God. If you really are in a situation where you have to have one sex for some reason then who cares ? Not like many people are in that situation. If I know my gf will be a good mother (which I already do) then I would do this for her.

Oh, right hang on. What you're saying is that it is YOU who want the baby to be a boy for your psychological issues.
I think she SHOULD leave you. You sound like a wierdo who is trying to fix his psychological issues by having a baby. What have you got against having a baby girl anyway? Nutcase.
