Hi Ron,

	Any close search of the genetic literature will establish there is a
in-active transmission from the X gene in women, described as
mutations of the ofspring. To illustrate further there is a number of
genetic linked deformatites in children that are directly from
in-active X chromesomes from both male and females.

	However scientific investigation has only indicated hypothesis at
present.
