Dyscalligynia

Definition - What does Dyscalligynia mean?

Dyscalligynia refers to a negative reaction to beautiful women. It comes from the the Greek dys, which means "bad," calli, which translates as "beautiful," and gynia, which refers to female. This is not a true condition, but a tongue-in-cheek word created to describe those who are threatened by beautiful women.

Kinkly explains Dyscalligynia

There are a lot of stereotypes about women who are considered beautiful according to societal standards. These can be negative assumptions, but they are also often positive ones, such as that beautiful people enjoy more happiness and better fortune. These assumptions can make them intimidating, leading to a feeling of dyscalligynia.
