I thought it was basic genetics... the main type of color-blindness was found to be a linked to the X chromosome... a guy only has one... so if the one he has, also has that color-blind gene -- he's color blind. For a woman to be color blind, both her X chromosomes have to have the color-blind gene -- meaning both her father has to have it and her mother has to be a carrier. (less likely) Here's something I found off google. [ April 24, 2002: Message edited by: Jessica Sant ]
it is called evolution. Over time, males couldn't care less about the colours of their clothes, furniture, etc. so over time we've lost this ability to distinguish between colours ( or we just don't care! ). Amazingly enough, we have increased the sensitivity to our sense of feel. This could be due to the fact that we make choices of our clothes, furniture, etc. based on comfort levels!
