    Smile No matter whether you are a boy or a girl,

    No matter whether you are a boy or a girl, you are bound to like it.
    No matter you are a boy or a girl, you are bound to like it.



    Which of the above two sounds better to you and why? Thanks.

    Thanks, 2006, for your reply.
    What about the following?

    Whether you are a boy or a girl, you are bound to like it.

    Will it sound best if I reword it as the above?

    This sentence is very good, as you have eliminated the unnecessary words "no matter".
