Amusing Math

Lucky Fatima:

Inshallah, I wanna have TWO sheep slaughtered and distributed as charity for my girl. I know the hadeeth, two for a boy, one for a girl. But I wanna do two. Is this okay? I just feel that only one cuz she’s female is sexist. I know there is theoretically extra rahmah and barakah for having and raising a girl, but it seems like qurbaani-ing [sacrificing] only one sheep is biased, since boys get two. Not fair. Why does it seem sometimes that for us Muslims, a lot of the benefits of being female are theoretical, when the on the ground practices are quite sexist and discriminatory?
