Why are there more color blind males than color blind females?

The Color Blind Trait is an abnormality in the X chromosome. Sex is determined by the X and Y chromosomes Males have an X chromosome and a Y chromosome while Females have two X chromosomes and no Y chromosomes. Since the X chromosome carry's the Color Blind Trait a colorblind male and colorblind female would produce off-spring that would be 100 % colorblind, while a colorblind male and a female that carries the Colorblind Trait will produce females that will carry the color blind trait or be colorblind and a male has a 50% chance to be colorblind. If a non-colorblind male mates with a colorblind female there will be no chance of producing colorblind females but they will always produce carrier females and they will always produce colorblind males. If a colorblind male mates with a female that is not a carrier or colorblind there is a 100% chance that the females produce will be carriers and no chance that the males will be colorblind. To answer the question... it's all in the genetics and males must have a mother that is a carrier or colorblind to be colorblind in the first place because men do not inherit the X chromosome from their father.

It has to do with the slight differences in the DNA, ANSWER Colorblindness is sex linked trait. Females are XX and Males are XY.

Females can have it on one X chromosome, but not the other and not be colorblind; however, they are a carrier and can pass it on. For a female to be colorblind both X chromosomes must have the gene.
