here is a specific question: IS 1/4 LOW?
yes. the probability of at least one female, given that you have 2 children is 3/4. may i also remind you that you thought that the relevant probability was 1/2 - you mentioned that value in your post before this one! you're now waffling about whether 1/4 is low or not!

did you remember to thank whoever told you that it's 1/4?

1) calculating that bb in set of bb, gg, bg, gb is 1/4th is not rocket science. 1/4th is NOT low. you are bonkers;
2) it is actually 1/2 in MY case. you made that remark in reference to MY case. it is the ONLY way your question MUST be interpreted.

you LOSE on both counts. go and argue with a math professor as to why 1/4th is NOT considered low. stop wasting my time.

i was hoping you will come up with ambiguity in your defense: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_or_Girl_paradox but you disappoint me.

I know some family, in which there is no girl in one entire generation. Meaning all 4-5 siblings had 2-3 boys each. I used to enter that house very carefully and slowly. Coz the moment I would enter, I would hear heavy feet running for shelter... yep, all boys chilling around in all states of nakedness...

I also had one friend, who lived in a multi family house with her uncle. The two brothers had 7 daughters between them, no son. Would have been 8, but one died of an accident at the age of 4. Entering that house felt like u have entered a forever party scene. Was so much fun.

And all this was in the 60's-70's. No u/s testing + abortions then. Go do ur probabilities now.

oh, and also had many many friends who were just brothers or just sisters. numbering from 2 to 5 of them. In fact, I know as many homogenous sibling families as I know bro-sis families. All from my age group. So ya... there is no rule really.

Exactly.

And it is dangerous to spread misinformation (about false probability)..people who are vulnerable may believe it and as I said, it leads to all kinds of family and societal problems.
