The internet is reeling after a rarely-seen diagram of the female muscular system went viral on Twitter.

The image features the milk ducts in female breasts, and it’s both an odd and rare sight for many, despite being a normal part of the average female anatomy.

The image has sparked mixed reactions online, some terrified and others fascinated.

“I just realized (sic) I never saw a photo of a female muscle system,” the post was captioned.

“This is NOT what I imagined milk ducts to look like.”

Turns out the Twitter user was not alone in her dilemma, the post has been retweeted over 45,000 times, and has attracted almost 4,000 comments, many of which echo the same sentiment.

Others saw the beauty in the image, pointing out they resembled flowers, and were really no stranger than any other part of the body.

“At first glance I thought someone had places some flowers there. Aren’t our bodies beautiful in their design?” asked one woman.

Others pointed out that a lack of education and exposure around the female body is what prompts such violent reactions.

Looks like most of us had no idea what was going on under the surface.

Love it or hate it, now you know.
