How is that of any importance at the age of zero? There are no differences.
Why is the first thing people usually ask when they learn a baby is born what their gender is?

It's more so they can start saying "He is due" or "She is due" instead of saying "It is due"... it's not an it. That and they can start planning... some people like to set up their nursery before the baby is born. Always go for gender neutral colors in my opinion, but some people might want a pink or blue room.1

what else are you supposed to ask? "Is it retarded?" "Yes? Oh good, send it to G@G!"2
It is only asked to open the door for more conversation0
There are only two possible answers... which keeps conversation simple... whereas if you ask something more relevant like "were there any complications", or "is/are he/she/they OK/healthy", things might get a bit dicey...0
