    Yes, hemophilia is more common in males because it is a genetic disorder that is passed down on the X chromosome. Males only have one X chromosome, while females have two. If a male inherits the defective gene on his single X chromosome, he will develop hemophilia. On the other hand, females need to inherit two copies of the defective gene (one from each parent) to develop hemophilia. This makes it much less likely for females to develop the disorder.
