Hemophilia is a recessive disorder that is carried on the X chromosome.
This is why is occurs more in males.  In females both X's would have to carry the defect to inhert the disorder.  Since males only have one X, they only need one to inhert the disorder

Haemophilia is carried on the X chromosome and it is also recessive too. So a man only has to inherit the bad haemophilia X ( from his mother) to suffer the trait, whereas a woman  has to inherit two bad haemopliliac X chromosomes to have haemophilia.   So it is recessive but also sex linked too.

According to the geniusest genius it is recessive for female but dominant in male. According to the top answers, hemophilia is a recessive, sex-linked, genetic disorder in which the clotting factors are missing; which causes limitless bleeding and deep bruises caused by small hits.

Another geniusestestest genius had told me that this disorder is a recessive trait and sexlinked.

Haemophilia is NOTdominant. It is a recessive trait but it is also sex linked on the x chromosome which means that a female with the "damaged" x will carry as a recessive ( which it truely is) but that a male with the "damaged" x ,inherited from his mum, has no normal dominant x to rule over the mutated one and so the recessiveness shows up in the male child but remains recessive in females. Thats why haemophiliacs are almost always male. A female would need to inherit two "bad" x chromosomes.
