Why do aging males tend to develop hairy ears while aging females don't?


My granddaddy and father-in-law both developed rather hairy ears as they aged, and I have heard other people say this is common in elderly men. But I've not really seen it in aging women. What causes this kind of hair growth in males?

    A friend forwarded it to me; I believe it is either his granddad or uncle. Not sure which!

    Maybe my FIL sometimes, but my Grandad had no problem there at all. Grandmother was a very soft-spoken and rather quiet lady.
