48. For social harmony a 50/50 split is best.
Edited on Tue May-24-11 04:10 PM by Kurska
I'm not really getting the point of these statics. If you're arguing that just because an uneven split is the "Natural" state, I don't see how that makes it better. The "Natural" state is also for a larger portion of females to die during childbirth, which probably explains the evolutionary drive to have a few more of them around than males. Assuming homosexuality is equally prevalent in both genders (we're not sure about that), it would be best to have 1 male for every female. Having a surplus of lonely people literally unable to find their preferred mate is something that will bite us all in the ass down the line, whether that skew is toward male or for females.
