Why do Boys Have Nipples?

I have ever wondered why that is? It sure is a curious thing that we do get big breasts and boys just stay flat, another mysterious wonder of the human body. Estrogen we get and they don't I would imagine to breastfeed.

  • Everyone kinda starts out as a girl.

  • While you are developing in the womb, your sex is not decided until several weeks after conception.

    That is incorrect.  The sperm decides gender so it is determined as soon as the sperm enters the egg.

  • Because the original human form is female.  The male body is a modification of the female body.  That's why women have 2 X chromosomes and men have 1 Y and 1 X.

  • From what I've read it's the estrogen we get and they don't they make them have nipples that are flat, that was the question, not how or why they were boys. We need the breasts to breastfeed and they don't, boy GOD works out the human body just right most of the time.
