A Facebook User took to the social media platform to air his views on having a male child.
It all started when a Facebook user used Barack Obama, Kobe Bryant, and Mark Zuckerberg as examples of men who are not obsessed with having sons to continue their legacy because they do not need an offspring to do that for them. The poster went on to advice men to stop putting pressure on their wives to birth male children because female children are equally important.
He also had support from a number of people who commented to let him know that they agree with his post.
Since Kobe Bryant’s death, the legendary basketball player has been used as an example of men who are proud to have daughters and did not give in to the pressure to have a son.
Kobe, who had 4 daughters, usually referred to himself as a “Girl Dad” and since his death, the hashtag #Girldad has been used by a lot of men who have daughters.
However, another Facebook user, Eze Chinyere Ugo disagreed with this notion.
He wrote: “Male child is male child. If God blesses you with one or more, be happy…but if not, continue praying. One male child is worth more than ten daughters.Without a male child, your generation will go into extinction immediately you pass on.
“Even this poster will not be comfortable without a male child”
