Fellas, This Animation Will Explain Why You Have Useless Nipples, In Case You Were Wondering


AsapSCIENCE is back with another marker animation to explain a bit of science some may not understand. Last time it was how Plan B works, this time it’s to explain why men have nipples that serve absolutely no purpose. Which I’m pretty sure I learned in middle school but hey, you might still be out of the loop and this is a fun way to learn.

Disclaimer: If you don’t agree with the science presented this video, just remember, we didn’t make it. (Just had to say it, we get that kind of thing a lot.)

    0:05-0;07 (And Possibly Some Other Pictures Depending On Your Opinion.)

    I Disagree with the “Science” of the “Tertiary Sexual Characteristics.” >_>

    0:04-0:10

    “Though, some prefer to call this stage, Gender-Neutral.”

    Hmm, I wonder who those “SOME” are? ‘Cause Suuuuuurrrre, when men Wrote the “Science” or “Magic,” as it were, back in the day, “Everyone Started As Maaaaaaale, SO DEAL WITH IT WO-MEN!”

    And said things like, “Males are Superior, because Everyone’s Based On Us.”

    But Now that Real ‘Science’ Indicates the Exact Opposite, “…..Ummmm, no, IT’S GENDER-NEUTRAL!!!1!!! I’m NO FE-MALE, THAT’S WHY THERE’S A MALE IN IT- Wait, Gender-Neutral *Cough* Never Mind…. *Mental Giggles*”

    And Now say things like, “Males are Superior, because We ‘Evolved’ from the ‘Primitive Female State.’”

    No Joke, Seriously.

    1:27-1:37

    I heard a Man (Born Male, Stayed Male) was able to Make his Nipples actually Produce Milk. So, maybe this is “Strike Two” of this Vid?

    Well, technically, it could be considered gender neutral since full development isn’t at hand.

    “Technically” how? Where’s the Y Chromosome? The X Chromosome’s already there. But Believe what you want, Man. Not like Men Aren’t Always Writing the “Facts” like “History.”

    I prefer gender neutral as it helps avoid discussions about if it is female then it is human therefore abortion is wrong

    Aren’t Fetuses’ Human, Biologically, like an Arm or a Leg? Human Bodies are just Female by Default, just as they are Human by Default, it Still Doesn’t give them more “Personhood” than those Body Parts.
