It is no doubt that in the Africa continent, there is disparity between the male and the female child.Now, which is more important in your tradition?
Africans regard male child than female but should not be so. Either male or female, there shouldn't be desparity between them.
In most African cultures, male child are always preferred to the female child cos we believe that the male are rightful heir to our various entities
I view such tradition as a stupid and senseless idea. be content with what God has given you regardless of their gender,because both are precious in God's sight. I don't see anything men does this days in which women can't do. God knows the best for everyone, if you were only given a female, be happy if you were able to raise her well. if I may ask,what if you were given a male child and he bring is misfortune and troubles without giving you a rest of mind, whom are you to blame?
Both r gift from God just bless dm wt prayers cos u dnt kno who is who
Agreed, Africa rate the male child than the female but the question is directed to u personally and not Africa, as 4 me and me alone I believe both female and male are highly important but I still rate the female higher than the male with reasons.
I think male are more important than female becos without male der would nt be female in dis wordEdited by RosySwaggies / 25 Jan 2016 23:18
when god creat the world is it only female he creat or only male?pls give thank to god that provide for you,most people are looking for child that god didn't provide them what did you want them to say.
A male child is more of important child than female because here in Africa people tends to believe that a male child is the heir of own self in this life.
it used to be boyz but times have changed all are important.
I have quite a number of Organizations the are Meant to Defend the Rights Of Women/Girl Child in Africa but NEVER heard one that stands for Men/Boy Child Rights ! In short the Boy Child in Africa has been Negleted. Don't be Suprised There's a SHORTAGE OF MEN in ERITREA; A Law has been Passed ordering Every man to marry atleast 2Wives failure to which he be PENALISED SEVERELY! #IGottaGoThere
A certain man from my area married a wife and the woman gave him 7 male children. In annoyance that he won't get inlaws, he married another woman who gave him 7 girls and he was extremely happy with the 2nd. Pls, be grateful 4 d one God gave yu. Male child propagates the family name while female enriches the family with more people

In annoyance that he won't get inlaws, he married another woman who gave him 7 female children and he was extremely happy with the 2nd. Pls, be grateful 4 d one God gave yu. Male child propagates the family name while female enriches the family with more people bcos their husbands is a plus to the family.
All of you have spoken very well.lt is really very unfortunate that the male is rated higher than the female.But here are some of the reasons for that.Africans value landed properties and ego (titleship alot) The female gets married & off she leaves to her husband's place.She is now concern with her marital affairs & no longer after her family's affairs.She & her children henceforth bear the husband's name.But the male stands and defend the family's name and properties. Amongst his children the males also will carry on the name of the family while the females also will get married & lost the family's name.That is why in a family of no male,the name of such a family easily goes into extinction.
