Ray's Pretty Nipples
The spiritual Mac and Cheese daddy himself, Ray Comfort, is at it again. This time it’s nipples on men. I’m just going to have to let Ray speak for himself. It’s only right to let him fully clarify himself as a moron before berating him as one. Comfort says,
“It’s my guess that God gave men nipples for aesthetic purposes. Without them, an obvious "something" would be missing. They give balance to the male body.”
I’m amazed that Ray is able to dumbfound me with his stupidity time and time again. I really ought to be used to it by now. Does he have no concept of the fact that what is familiar is attractive? If men did not have nipples, an “obvious ‘something’” would not be missing. It would be the norm. A male with nipples would have an obvious “something” present and it would cause us discord because it was NOT the norm. We would think it was strange…as strange as a man without nipples would be to us now. Ray continues,
“Men have nipples for the same reason God gave us one nose and not two, and two eyes and not one. That’s unless you think that a one-eyed two-nosed man would be attractive to women. I’m sure such a man would have some sort of a career in Hollywood, but probably not as a leading lady’s-man. So I think it’s fair to say that the male nipple is purely cosmetic."
Well, here we have it. Ray has no clue about human biology, physiology, or psychology and what actually constitutes attraction. If one eye and two noses were the norm, we’d think two-eyed, one-nosed people were disfigured and possibly even freakish. The male nipple is most assuredly NOT “cosmetic”.
Men have nipples because when all of us start off in the womb, we’re essentially following a female “template” 1. We’re all “proto-females”. Nipples develop during the third or fourth week of gestation, two to three weeks before the sex of the infant is determined. If the Y-chromosomes trigger testosterone production, a male is produced and the nipples are essentially useless. If it doesn’t, a female develops and the nipples will eventually have subcutaneous mammary glands that will produce milk and possibly nourish another nipple-bearing human.
"The male moustache falls into the same category. I can’t think of why it exists other than for decorative purposes.”
Well, even a broken clock is right at least once a day, right?
