It's a hold over from the Abiogenesis days of evolution when organisms divided as a means of reproduction. Kinda like nature saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Everything in this world doesn't have to have a use, meaning, or relevance. Can't you just accept them for what they are with no purpose?

For the every first few weeks of pregnancy babies have very similar traits before sex is determined. ( I'm sure I'm not saying this quite right, sorry. )

What doesn't make sense about it? I was 50 years old before a lady taught me that mine are as sensual as hers.

Men have nipples because during the early stages of a fetus's developemet the sex of the child has not yet been determied so basically what nature does is give a child i the whomb the same basic things as the opposite sex same reaso why women are able to have a orgasm.....(sorry if that didnt make any sense

Agree. Even sillier, my big fat cat - he has 8 of 'em! Go figure. (Actually, in the womb, most mammals are sex-less, with nipples, until certain hormones kick in, in utero, that make them/us female or male. At puberty more hormones surface that help finish the process.)

Hey, it's proof of evolution!
Natural selection shows that more men can life with them (how many do you know that have survived without them???).

The reason men have nipples is we were created in Gods image.

The early fetus is basically female. When the development advances to the point where the X and Y chromosomes are accessed, the sex of the fetus is determined and continues to develop in that direction. Its all about the DNA.
