Speaking Truth To Power

Alpha Patriot pointed me to this item on Yahoo News. The book sounds interesting, in a trivial sort of way. The article passage highlighted by Alpha Patriot, and echoed here, is:

And why do men have nipples?

While only females have mammary glands, we all start out in a similar way in the embryo, the authors explain. The embryo follows a female template until about six weeks, when the male sex chromosome kicks in.

Men, however, have already developed nipples.
But then Alpha Patriot adds this stinger:
But that's OK, with the testosterone kicking in we go on to develop brains.
Ouch! I hope the women in my household don't see this post!
