True, but the point is that young high status females do not prefer to
mate with pubescent males, more often choosing older, more powerful
males, even if polygamy results. The _onset_ of baldness is therefore a
sexually attractive characteristic denoting the power of maturity.
Also, I think that a receding hairline makes the forehead look higher,
therefore making the braincase look larger, denoting the power of higher
intellect (which is not necessarily the case, but hey, sometimes we
women get fooled!). <g>
