Hello bio people,

I'm sorry if this is not the exact place for this question, but I was
wondering if someone could answer a simple question...

I was talking with a group of people about people whose XY chromosomes are
"screwy," like XXY, etc, and someone recalled hearing about men who were
for some reason EXTRA-masculine.  That is to say, they were very hairy and
extremely aggressive, very MALE.  We wondered if it were in ANY way
possible to get an set of chromosomes that were XYY, or how genetically
this could happen.  Could someone be XYY, or maybe just Y ?  Thanks in
advance to anyone who answers!
