Do find that men and women prefer a male or female pet? Are male and female pets really that different?

I´ve heard female animals like male humans and male animals like female humans. I personally enjoy have female cats, but I must say that the male cats are more affectionate towards me and I´m female. My male labrador is very affectionate.

I too prefer Male birds,as I've had many females that went through laying dud eggs,or worrying about them getting eggbound.
Other than that,for dogs and cats,I'm not really specific on the sex of an animal.I think most issues can be nipped in the bud,if people spay and neuter.
As for our furry smaller friends,I have heard different opinions on "why",and which sex to get,because of their known behaviors,but truthfully,I can only go by the rabbits I have now,and they are both spayed/Neutered,so any behaviors they were known for have disappeared.
It's been too many years for mice,Gerbils,Hamsters,Rats,and piggies,etc.,to remember if I preferred a certain sex. lol
