Great resource, Brian. Handy if we need to check for colorblind designs.

As is usually the case, if a gender gets singled out, it comes down to the X chromosome:

"The fact that color blindness is so much more prevalent among men implies that, like hemophilia, it is carried on the X chromosome, of which men have only one copy. (As in hemophilia, women are protected because they have two X chromosomes; a normal gene on one chromosome can often make up for a defective gene on the other.)"
