You have several versions of a gene (your trait). There are some genes that are only be found on the X-chromosome. If there is a defect in that gene, the defect is dominant in the male, because the male is missing a second X-chromosome and therefore a healthy copy of the gene that could compensate. Examples: hemophilia, Duchenne muscular dystrophy
