Dyscalligynia

Updated: FEBRUARY 22, 2021

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