(2) IF this were true THEN the most hairless appearing humans would be the hunters and not the gatherers. Conclusion: women did the hunting while the men did the gathering. Please compare this to what you know about anthropology.
African men are considerably more hairless than european men. It is quite plausible that the increased hairiness of men in Europe represents a trend of adaptation to colder conditions.
quote:(3) This also explains why other cursorial hunters, like wild dogs and wolves, are naked ... ?
Those aren't persistance hunters. Humans are the only species in the world known to persistant hunt, AFAIK.
quote:(7) The evidence is that bare skin is still a factor in sexual selection, by the vast industry in hair removal equipment, salves, and treatements, some for men, but much more for women (also see Venus razor ads).
(8) Male hair pattern in women is seen as an unfortunate medical condition, female hair pattern in men is not.
(9) The porn industry is populated with fully shaved bodies, and a google for "hairy naked women" only shows women that have not shaved armpits and crotch, not women with beards.
Using recent, predominantly western european fashions as evidence for long term evolutionary trends strikes me as absurd in the extreme.
