As much as I remember baldness is autosomal. But it is seen in the phenotype according to gender. Or something like that. I mean more complex than being x-linked.
It matters not how strait the gate
How charged with punishment the scroll

I am the Captain of my soul.

according to my textbook it is sex influenced... so the hormonal composition of the individual affects the degree to which the phenotype is expressed.
