This idea is vulnerable to degeneration due to misunderstanding and misuse. Let's not go there.
I am a good example of my idea:
I am not a hairy person. My torso, biceps, and thighs are basically hairless. When my head hair grows out, it's just past my shoulders, a little
wavy and "dirty blond" in color. My eyebrows and arm hair are not very dense and are white blond in the summer. My leg hair is light brown. My
underarm hair is thin, brown, and straight. In contrast to all of this my pubic hair is dense, black, and tightly curled. My point being that I have
two, very distinct types of hair on my person. In every species there is some variability in the characteristics of hair on different parts of the
body, but there is a general continuity. I haven't been able to identify an example of any other species that can manifest two, so clearly distinct
types of hair. Am I just ignorant? Or does this appear uniquely in humans?
