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?
Oh my... Did you take this picture Beth? How did you manage to get so close? Did he notice that you were taking a picture of his hairy eardrum? Or did you sneak up on him?
Probably for the same reason that males grow beards, mustaches, etc. - and women do not.
Only happens to men who get nagged a lot. Perpetual nagging triggers a male latent ear hair gene designed to muffle the threatening noise
Since it is a known fact that women talk about 3 times more than men, I think God gave men ear hair to filter out all the jibberish after many years of marriage. I know some men that actually braid it because their wives discovered cell phones.
Reminds me of a quote: "Baldness is God's way of reminding you that you're human. He takes the hair from your head and sticks it in your ears."
So if they are thinning on top, that explains it.
They studied this & found it was actually evolution in action, & men we're evolving natural ear plugs to lesson their wife's moaning etc....I bet your Grand dad & Father in law both couldn't get a word in, & so the ear growth took over as a defense mechanism!lol
