Biologically male people always inherit their X chromosome from their mother. The X chromosome is about three times larger than the Y chromosome containing about 900 genes while the Y chromosome has about 55 genes. Female mammals have two X chromosomes in every cell.
Men and women can get the X-linked ones since both inherit X chromosomes. of men. This is due to the fact that men only have one X chromosome.
