I'll give an opinion.

The loss of fur, particularly for a child, makes the child more dependent on the community. This dependence makes it easier for the child to learn to be a cooperative member of the society. It is the fact that humans are social (live in societies and mutually cooperate) that distinguishes humans. Sure, apes are also social, but not to nearly the same extent as humans.

Let's end the political smears
