I‘m both fascinated and horrified by the “Misogynatomy” tag on the BadWomensAnatomy subreddit, a glimpse into some of the deeply weird (and completely wrong) things woman-hating men (and even a few women and non-binary folks) believe about cis women’s bodies.
Here are a few items from the Misogynatomy Files I’ve come across recently that made me die a little inside.
Women with six-pack abs can’t be women any more
In a thread on MyAnimeList.com asking whether or not muscular women are sexually appealing to others in the forum, one commenter puts themselves firmly in the “no” camp.
If you’re a girl and your boobs have turned into pecks and you have defined abs, you’re not a woman anymore.
Fuck off Social Justice Warriors
Er, I’m pretty sure the word you’re looking for there is “pecs,” not “pecks,’ unless you’re talking about bird ladies.
Ironically, the commenter (who identifies as non-binary) has an anime girl as their avatar; apparently to be a Real Women you need not only to be free of unsightly washboard abs; you also have to have eyes the size of dinner plates.
Buff women have huge clits that look like cigar ends
After a personal trainer put a video of herself squatting a whole man up on Twitter, she received this unsolicited bad-anatomy lesson from a self-described cynic.
The bad anatomy instructor offered a fuller explanation for this assertion in a followup tweet.
Weirdly, Chaun offered no citations to back up his claims.
Lesbians stop being lesbians during ovulation, when they all want to be “railed” by Chad. Also there are no lesbians above the age of 30
Men Going Their Own Way have a lot of very peculiar ideas about lesbians, many of which are on full display in this thread discussing a study showing that a surprising number of teenage lesbians get pregnant.
Rachel Maddow, do you have any thoughts on this?
And then there’s
The dude who thinks that his biological mother is not his biological mother because his dad accidentally implanted another woman’s egg in her uterus with his dick, wait what?
I don’t even know what to say to this one. It’s one of the strangest things I’ve ever read. (And I basically read strange things all day for a living.)
If you can’t read that tiny type, here’s the quote in bigger letters.
I don’t look like my mom at all. My dad was a musician for awhile and probably got loads of pussy. Is it possible while a man is fucking a female for an egg in the ovaries to become loose and fall in to his peehole? Then when he goes to have sex with another woman he squirts his semen and the egg into the woman’s ovaries and that foreign egge basically becomes the one that is fertilized inside of her? I’m pretty sure I was born out of my mom because she told me that my brother and I were both C-section babies. Having a different mom that I was supposed to have couldn’t contributed to my inceldoom, too, right?
Jesse from Breaking Bad, do you have any thoughts on this?
Now, I should say that I was unable to track this quote down to its original source — reportedly it was from the Braincels subreddit. So I can’t vouch for its authenticity. But it sure sounds like genuine incel logic to me. If it’s not, kudos to whoever wrote it for their dead-on incel impersonation.
Anyway, have a nice weekend, everyone, and try not to have any weird nightmares about penis ovipositors and glowing, ever-growing cigar clits.

H/T — Twitter’s Clayton Cubitt, for tweeting a bunch of pictures of very buff Victorian ladies, one of whom I borrowed for the graphic up top.
