Why do females continue to outnumber males in the older brackets on population pyramids for the United States?

Update:

I'm looking for scientific or historical reasons, like specific wars or anything like that, that might have affected especially the male population for those generations...?

    The male gene is dieing. 1 in 7 babys are boys. So look at like this 6 in 7 babys are girls. Oh one last thing we all start out as girls thats why we all have nipples.

    The wars we have been through, WW2 and Vietnam both took a great toll of males.

    becuase males lives are harder.... riskier

    more is expected of them.... men are the ones that lead.

    War:...Gulf war, Vietnam war, Korean war, World war 2, World war 1

    The male gene isnt going anywhere.... we have more force and we will continue to lead... we are the head.

    I honestly have no clue.

    It's like the male gene is getting significantly weaker and weaker.
