Males contribute X chromosomes to their daughters, which can then undergo recombination and be passed on to their sons and daughters, and so on. In other words, every male receives his X chromosome from his mother, where it underwent recombination with its homologous X. Surely this doesn’t have to be explained to you further.

don't call him shirley.  and you know it will have to be explained to him further.  looking forward to seeing his response

I didn't think it was possible, but joe is far stupider than I thought:


Did you have a point?
How did what you posted address:
BTW each male carries a population of gametes.
In that population we should see the X chromosome deteriorate over time.
That is if your premise is correct.

My point is that a dad can give a deteriorated X to his daughter.
And you still haven’t addressed:
So if recombination is limited deterioration is inevitable?
IOW how does recombination prevent deterioration?
