Picture showing what a woman's milk duct looks like goes viral

The human body is an incredible instrument: inspiring wonder and disbelief in equal measure. But there are some parts of our anatomy that are better known about than others, including some organs which are exclusively female. If you want an example of how unfamiliar feminine biology is to some people, then check out how many people on the internet were left weirded-out by an anatomical diagram of a woman's mammary glands this week.

Taking to Twitter, a user going by the handle @lemonadead uploaded a picture of the anatomical diagram and captioned the photograph by writing: "I just realized I never saw a photo of a female muscle system. This is NOT what I imagined milk ducts to look like. [sic]" The image in question has now managed to accrue more than 43,000 retweets and a whopping total of 133,000 likes.

This woman has opened up about how she has decided to embrace her sagging breasts:

A number of other Twitter-users quickly took to the comments to post their personal reactions to the image. Some people provided us with a mature and dignified appreciation of the intricacies of the female form, while others ... not so much.

For instance, someone with the handle @womanyst wrote: "It sort of looks like...flesh flowers? Terrifying but also kind of beautiful?" while another person added: "why is everyone saying it’s gross? we have literal flowers on our titties that’s so cool. [sic]"

Meanwhile, someone else added: "This reminds me of those nail tip wheels they show you in the salon. This is deeply distressing," and another person concurred by writing: "We guys like looking at women with skin on them. 👀 [sic]"

The original poster then returned to the comments section with a follow-up, writing: "How are some of you finding this beautiful? I’m legit STRESSED knowing this is inside my titties 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭. [sic]" 

To be fair, there are plenty of parts of the male anatomy that I wouldn't like to look at with the skin flayed off ... or with the skin on for that matter.
