hehe. Match Game fun. LOTS of fun.
If a woman who is color blind marries a man with normal vision, their sons will be colorblind and their daughters will have normal vision. Color blindness is a sex linked genetic characteristic which is transmitted by females but which is recessive in females.
I... think they can. *nod*

Oh, Noes, The 70's!!
The hair styles and those clothes have left me prostrate. lol
=) Richard Dawson can prostate himself in m--I mean.... wow. That was naughty. ;)
It's actually VERY rare that women are color blind, but they can pass the gene on to their sons.
For example, my mother is NOT color blind, but her brother's were, all three of her sons were color blind and neither were either of her daughters.
I am NOT color, blind, but I passed the gene to ONE of my two sons, who is decidedly LESS color blind than his uncles (and a different KIND of color blind as well). My sister has a son, but he's too young to tell if he's color blind, yet.
My husband is VERY color blind, but neither of his two sons is color blind.
Women are rarely color-blind, since it IS recessive in females, but they can carry the gene as a recessive to their male children.
There are different types of colorblindness. Its all in the cones of your eyes. I'm pretty sure there is only two types, ones common and one is very rare.
i love matchgame, i used to watch it on game show network constantly... as for colorblindness, that would suck times a million.. my friend is colorblind and he is an artist.. it is exciting, but he uses color extraordinarily.
and fannie should have shown her boobs.
Yeah we get genetically screwed all the time with that recessive trait on the X chromosome thing. Baldness, hemophilia...now color blindness. Its all god's way of punishing us because Eve had to go and eat that apple. Way to go Eve.
i saw that episode of match game the other day!
ohhh how i love game show network.
Wow...I didn't know that would happen, lol.
Cool video :)
YAY, that was funny, got off from work and made me laugh so hard!!
also ick... that sucks for me =\
I got a friend who was knocked back from the RAF for being colourblind.
Now he's a plumber.
Life sucks, huh?
I love me some Richard Dawson. ;)
I never knew the color blind stuff! I had an orchestra teacher who was color blind. Except he was a guy. =) So maybe his mother was color blind? Or else just passed it on.
Oooh. You should ask him. :)
haha... i LOVE the match game... actually watched it last night with my friend. first time in at least two years that i'd sat down to see it.
