The more you learn about the human body, the more amazing you realize it is. It seems as if this has come into sharper focus, thanks to a diagram showing a woman’s milk ducts.
People have had different reactions to the image. Some of them are grossed out, which is strange, considering how they may have been kept alive by these milk ducts when they were babies.
It really doesn’t matter what your personal feelings are on the subject, most people were astounded when they found out what a woman’s breasts actually look like on the inside.
I just realized I never saw a photo of a female muscle system. This is NOT what I imagined milk ducts to look like. pic.twitter.com/GBK6trgXF8— Artist formerly known as Byeonce (@lemonadead) April 21, 2019
Just days after it was posted, the tweet had more than 120,000 likes and 40,000 shares. Most of them came from people who just did not know what those milk ducts looked like.
After posting the picture, the Twitter user followed it up by saying: “How are some of you finding this beautiful? I’m legit STRESSED knowing this is inside my titties.”
Others agreed, with one person even going as far as to say: “I DONT WANT BREASTS ANYMORE.”
At first I thought someone put flowers over boobs because art. Now, it looks like a weird alien creature lives inside my body and I'm terrified.— Amandala What You Must 🤷🏾♀️* (@PearlPillay) April 22, 2019
Yet another added: “We aren’t supposed to see this. We weren’t supposed to know. No one is here for these flesh flowers.”
Others felt disappointed that they didn’t learn about this when they were growing up, as one pointed out: “Like omg how interesting. So much stuff just clicked. I’m kinda irritated this wasn’t something we learned in health class tbh”.
Another embraced it, asking: “Why is everyone saying it’s gross? We have literal flowers on our titties, that’s so cool.”
It’s beautiful to me- I breastfed my kids and wow! Those things nourished my babies.— YourFavBlackAuntie (@greendoondoon) April 22, 2019
I’m trying to understand why ppl don’t wanna see it. Its beautiful. I’m bias bc my wife is currently breastfeeding lol— Sean (@TheSeanMo) April 23, 2019
One man encouraged women to love what they had: “I hate to get deep on a post but if you think about it God made us from earth. We resemble nature through our anatomy if that makes sense. Lol. Our veins and arteries looks like roots on a tree.
“The spine is the trunk of the tree & the brain is the top of the trees where the branches stretch far and wide. Every beautiful tree has its flowers (the nipple).”
I guess that’s one way of looking at it.
