Depends on the type of baldness. Male pattern baldness is caused by production of a particular testosterone. Just a side effect of natural development, perhaps with no direct advantage.
People in general have reduced terminal hair relative to our ancestors because it allows us to efficiently dissipate heat. We're successful predators in large part because of this: it allowed our ancestors to hunt more successfully (and safely) via a pursuit strategy. When's the last time a chimp ran a marathon?
Logically, then, we have some recently acquired mechanism that prevents us from growing thick hair everywhere, various androgens suppress this mechanism, but a particular testosterone (DHT) binds the receptors in the scalp and prevents other androgens from doing so, meaning that it can be active there.
Yeah, calm down while shitposts overrun the board.
Don't get upset, don't let it worry you at all.
Most importantly, don't take any action.
Just calmly let it continue to happen, that's the ticket.
Now, if you actually want to do something productive instead, all you have to do to fight shitposts is: goldpost. Create threads that are intelligent, informative, well-grounded in scientific knowledge, and are lighthearted enough to be consumed by people of any or no scientific background.
You can't fight it by just removing stupidity. You have to fight it by displacing stupidity with intelligence.
>>7641523 2015 still not realizing that evolution has no purpose but its the other way around, only the creatures with the evolutionary advantage survive. so baldness is just a relic of something. but the main thing is that there is no purpose in evolution.
>>7641828 It targets hairs on the back and other parts of your body too: It causes them to grow.
It's either: a) just something that happened to coincide with having genes that allowed people to more quickly reproduce b) a sexual selection trait by women who like men that look "regal" or "smart" (baldness wasn't always seen as a negative trait) or c) a little of a, a little of b
