Here’s why millions of men can’t do this simple two-step arm movement – but women can 0 80

A SIMPLE arm movement that most women can do is baffling men who are unable to copy.

Demonstrated by a couple on TikTok in a video viewed millions of times, it’s yet another viral trend that shows the bizarre differences in male and female anatomy.

In the clip, Jemmi, from San Diego, places her forearms and elbows together with her hands in fists.

She lowers her arms in front of her, so her palms would be facing up.

Her boyfriend Russ also attempts the move but is unable to do it as well.

The key difference is that Jemmi can keep her elbows together, while Russ can’t.

I’m a fashion fan and this is my bra hack – you’ll never see bra straps again

The video, which says “only girls can do this…”, has been watched almost 2.5 million times as eager viewers try the trick out.

So what’s going on?

Women and male anatomy are different in dozens of ways. Some are blindingly obvious but others, such as this, are not so.

Justin from the Institute of Human Anatomy explains that gender differences that are not important to reproduction are called “secondary sex characteristics”.

In a YouTube video titled “Women Have Weird Elbows”, he discusses the so-called “carrying angle”. 

This is thought to be why women can do the simple arm trick while men cannot, MailOnline reported. 

The carrying angle is the gap between the elbow and the body if you were to:

  • Stand with your arms in front of you with your palms facing upward (supinated position)
  • Extend your arms out and bring them to the side of your body. Your palms should be facing away from you 

The gap that forms between your body and elbow is called the carrying angle. 

It allows the arms to swing by the body without hitting the hips (which are wider than the shoulders).

For example, imagine you are walking home with very heavy shopping bags, and you are holding them at a slight angle from your body, with extended elbows.

Some people’s forearms come out at more of an angle than they might anticipate, Justin says.

Women are more likely to find this, and therefore have a larger carrying angle than males.

Normally a woman’s angle is 14° away from the body, while a man’s is 11°, according to 

This may be because women have wider hips, and therefore need more space to swing their arms.

However, Justin noted some other theories too.

He explained that research has shown that the carrying angle is larger in shorter people, too, and women tend to be shorter than men.

Factors such as this could explain why some men will still be able to do the movement, while women cannot. 

Research has shown that throwing athletes have a greater carrying angle.

And it may just be that can also determine whether you can do the arm movement trick.

It comes after a string of tasks have gone viral on TikTok showing women being able to do them while men cannot.

For example, to do the chair challenge – which women can do but men can’t:

  • Stand up against the wall and take three footsteps back
  • Place a chair in front of you, up against the wall
  • Bend over the chair, creating a 90-degree angle with your body
  • Place your head against the wall
  • Lift the chair up to your chest, keeping your head against the wall
  • Try to stand up straight, lifting the chair with you

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 42

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
