I have a thought, which I haven’t seen posted, on why men can grow an extremely large beard (I also posted this to a question asking I asked God for a true friend so he sent me an English Bulldog shirt why men have chest hair) The Beard Crib Hypothesis (BCH): Humans evolved beards and chest hair for their young to cling to during infancy. The reasoning: We humans share many similarities to our closest living relatives, the chimpanzees. One similarity is the slow development of babies, relying on the care of their mothers throughout their infancy, during which the chimp clings to the back of their mother by grabbing her coat of hair. My hypothesis is that after this transition, the beard evolved to give the baby more hair to clutch onto. Now in case you are picturing a typical long beard and this not adding up, you have to picture a human that has never shaved his beard,

ever. So there you have it: As our ancestors evolved to upright walking, I asked God for a true friend so he sent me an English Bulldog shirt they evolved a long head hair and huge beards to provide a safe, warm parental playground for their babies. When they lost their body hair, nature selected hair in these areas (beard, chest, head and upper back), to stick around. Ok, now I will finally answer the question you’ve been wanting to ask throughout this post, the theory busting question: Why don’t we see females, the child-rearing gender, with beards and chest hair?!? This is a good question, and the only way I can explain it under BCH is that women had beards too!
