Recently through an audio-visual production from YouTube’s SciShow channel, I came to know about the reason behind the existence of nipples in men. Every human fetus inside the womb starts its journey as a woman and skin cells responsible for the formation of nipples develop before the genes in some of those fetuses change their genders. Perhaps this is a well-known fact already, I have no idea but the information was groundbreaking for me. Here is the reason in a nutshell. After studying the supposed differences between men and women for more than a decade, I reached a conclusion in 2014 that essentially human beings are all the same regardless of their genders. What we are judged for, what we desire and do is never determined by the gender but by the socioeconomic perception of different stereotypes prevalent around our lives. However, the false notion of being conceived with a gender prevented me from embracing the theory scientifically but now with this new fact I know human beings are all conceived as woman. No wonder honey nourishes us so amazingly!
I pray to your kind soul to bear with me through these reality challenging steps (for me). Consider the fact that all human fetuses like me begin their journey as women. At some given point my genes decide to activate the Y chromosome from my father and I end up being born as a male. So all men like me exist because Mother Nature or evolution nodded to a complex liability like a very liberal mother I must add and decided against asexual propagation despite the cost reduction aka optimization. Sexual propagation required the creation and maintenance of the male gender. The liability is further compounded by the fact that creation of that gender depended solely on the probability of a male, created earlier, being able to deliver a specific set of chromosome, add to that the maintenance cost of the said chromosome. Yet evolution accepted a huge burden for the existence of men it seems. The only reason I can think of is probably as Eve fell in love with Adam in the Garden of Eden, she prayed to God and God decided in favor of sexual propagation.
In return what have we given back? Instead of being men, no let me rephrase that, instead of being even humans we have managed to become lions at best! Before letting off the horses I hope we know how lame lions truly are! First they beat the crap out of an aged lion until he runs away, then they go on an infanticide, killing all the cubs, they mostly do not hunt as well but always take the lion’s share of the kill and at the first sight of another lion who smells stronger they run away. A few confused ones might end up in a skirmish but as soon as the supremacy of strength is determined, the weaker one will always run away and the cycle continues. I do not see any silver lining in that cloud of life, do you?
I know failure is embarrassing but instead of using it as a constructive feedback in the development loop, we came up with male centric stereotyping to the extent of male chauvinism and privileges. Did I just hear a whisper in my head saying, ignorance was bliss? But it was not, it can never be. Ignorance is always an abyss, almost like hell. Enlightenment is the only path. In which direction we may walk on it is entirely another thing. So I humbly urge you to redefine Male Privilege as the boastful illusion most men and some women too believe in to irrationally justify preventable inferiority and inefficiencies in human beings. I also believe that it is as calamitous for the world as climate change is. Thank you!
