For some reason, there are more males than females initially at birth, like 107 males for every 100 females. The number tapers down as life goes on.
Males tend to die younger for a number of reasons.
Its not a surprising stastistic when you think about countries not in the west. In China, India, and the middle east, sons are more valuable than
daughters, and thus female infants are usually killed or aborted in the womb. And since those regions vastly outnumber the west where females and
males aren't really looked at much differently, it is not a surprise.
Outside of western society, much of the world tends to still hold negative views towards females.
