We are genetically more like our fathers

This is according to a new study:

Like father, like son. And also like daughter, according to new research.

The University of North Carolina School of Medicine released a study Monday indicating mammals are genetically more like their fathers than their mothers, according to a statement from UNC.

“Specifically, the research shows that although we inherit equal amounts of genetic mutations from our parents – the mutations that make us who we are instead of some other person – we actually ‘use’ more of the DNA that we inherit from our dads,” the statement reads.

What? How dare mammals use more of the DNA from a father than a mother. There must be a government program or law that can change this inequality.
