Manipples?
« on: 26/09/2003 06:22:01 »
I heard this question stated the other day... Why do men have nipples? Well, I have no idea, and I thought you all would have some insight on this. I know that men and women have both differences as well as similarities. But, they don't seem to serve any purpose.... Did they ever? Is it an XY / XX thing? Everything serves some purpose right down to the toes. What's with the male nipples? I guess we'd look pretty silly without them, but we'd look silly without eyelids too. So, if someone could shed some light on my nipples, I'd appreciate it. :)

There's a default human body that includes nipples. The extra genes women get add bigger hips and breasts, and the extra genes males get add a penis.

Am I dead? Am I alive? I'm both!

Thank you, I wondered if they might have served a purpose at one time, but no longer needed. The default body makes sense. Like a computer shell.
