Why Do Men Have Nipples?


We can open jars. We can fix cars and kill spiders and chop wood make our own beef jerky. But there’s one thing we cannot do- Nurse babies. Barring certain medical conditions—like having a tumor on your pituitary gland—men generally lack the levels of prolactin to lactate and produce milk. So if male hooter hats can’t produce milk, then why the hell do we even have them? The answer is a matter of embryonic development.

If you’re not a big reader, there’s a video on the next page explaining it all. But for all you eggheads out there, check out the explanation below ↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓


Basically, males and females both begin and are built from the same genetic blueprint, vestigial and all. For the first four to six weeks or so, the embryo doesn’t really know what it wants to be When it grows up, a boy or a girl. [btw save the non binary shit for someone who’s not still in the fucking womb] However, around seven weeks of gestation, a gene on the Y chromosome triggers changes that lead to the development of the testicles, which produce sperm and testosterone. After that it’s pretty much a wrap, you’re a dude. A dude with nipples.

See? That wasn’t a neck breaking read was it? But if you are more of a visual person, CLICK HERE for the video.
