    the student teacher in my economics/government class told the class that there are 6 different genders, depending on what sex chromosomes one posesses. One of the combinations he mentioned was YY, but if a zygote ended up with 2 Ys, would it develop at all? I would think that there's too much 'stuff' on the X for anyone to survive without one. And any comments on the first part, about there being 6 genders, are most welcome as well.

    Economics and government class, eh! Sounds like a tree hugging, left wing, politically correct liberal to me. What do you think?

    Six genders!
    XX
    XY
    YX
    YY
    that only looks like four! :?

    Heterosexual male
    Heterosexual female
    Homosexual male
    Homosexual female
    Bisexual male
    Bisexual female

    Ah ha! Six genders. I was right. your teacher is a tree hugging, left wing, politically correct liberal.

    i believe the genders included cases with 3 sex chromosomes(XXX, XXY, etc.), but not all. and sorry to burst your bubble, but he specifically said that sexual orientation has nothing to do with it. i'll ignore the rest.

    There is no way that a person with YY could possibly exist... there is just not enough information on the Y chromosome. The X chromosome is huge and contains a large amount of information. However i've heard of... XX XY XXY XXX X XXXY XYY XXXX XXXXX so theres 9... maybe i'm missing some or but i believe all these have been documented.

    There is XO <-- Turner Syndrome (i think ... maybe ... some silly name like that anyway)
