Intersex people are individuals born with any of several sex characteristics including chromosome patterns, gonads, or genitals that, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, "do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies".

Sex assignment at birth usually aligns with a child's anatomical sex and phenotype. The number of births with ambiguous genitals is in the range of 0.02% to 0.05%. Other conditions involve atypical chromosomes, gonads, or hormones. Some persons may be assigned and raised as a girl or boy but then identify with another gender later in life, while most continue to identify with their assigned sex. The number of births where the baby is intersex has been reported differently depending on who reports and which definition of intersex is used. Anne Fausto-Sterling and her co-authors suggest that the prevalence of ...

Situs inversus (also called situs transversus or oppositus) is a congenital condition in which the major visceral organs are reversed or mirrored from their normal positions. The normal arrangement of internal organs is known as situs solitus. Although cardiac problems are more common, many people with situs inversus have no medical symptoms or complications resulting from the condition, and until the advent of modern medicine, it was usually undiagnosed.

Hyperdontia is a condition that’s characterized as having supernumerary teeth, or an excess number of teeth. Although the cause is unknown for sure, there is believed to be a genetic factor in hyperdontia as well as overactivity of the dental lamina during tooth development.

Paolo and Francesca, whom Dante's Inferno describes as damned for fornication -

Lust or lechery (Latin: luxuria "carnal") is intense longing. It is usually thought of as intense or unbridled sexual desire, which may lead to fornication (including adultery), rape, bestiality, and other sinful and sexual acts; oftentimes, however, it could also mean other forms of unbridled desire, such as for money, or power. Henry Edward Manning explains that the impurity of lust transforms one into "a slave of the devil".

Dante defined lust as the disordered love for individuals. It is generally thought to be the least serious capital sin, as it is an abuse of a faculty that humans share with animals and sins of the flesh are less grievous than spiritual sins. In Dante's Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful t...

“Hard vore” is much more graphic and involves prey that bleed, are dismembered, are killed, or otherwise experience grave harm from a predator. These fantasies may feature intense violence, but not always, and some hard vore gore is somewhat tame.

Monster fetish refers to one's sexual fascination with monsters or inhuman creatures. People who have a monster fetish often fantasize about being dominated by monsters.

A carnivore /ˈkɑːrnɪvɔːr/, or meat-eater (Latin, caro, genitive carnis, meaning meat or "flesh" and vorare meaning "to devour"), is an animal whose food and energy requirements derive solely from animal tissues (mainly muscle, fat and other soft tissues) whether through hunting or scavenging.

Animals that depend solely on animal flesh for their nutrient requirements are called hypercarnivores or obligate carnivores, while those that also consume non-animal food are called mesocarnivores or facultative carnivores.

Omnivores also consume both animal and non-animal food, and apart from the more general definition, there is no clearly defined ratio of plant vs. animal material that would distinguish a facultative carnivore from an omnivore.

A carnivore at the top of the food chain, not preyed upon by other animals, is ter...

Dark Academia is a popular (and the original) academic aesthetic that revolves around classic literature, the pursuit of self-discovery, and a general passion for knowledge and learning. Because this is an internet aesthetic, it largely entails sharing photographs, making outfits, and participating in certain hobbies through social media.

As the internet aesthetic grew in the late 2010s and early 2020s, many book publishers capitalized on this aesthetic and used this phrase to create and advertise YA books, making this also a new fictional genre in its early stages.

Dark Academia's visuals stem primarily from upper-class European cultures of the 19th century, Gothicism, and American Prep. The upper class of this time period emphasized a liberal education in which Latin, rhetoric and classics were taught subjects. These are now seen as unusual and e...

Traumacore is a type of aesthetic imagery that delves into the themes of abuse and trauma (particularly sexual trauma or CSA) along with cute visuals to give the whole aesthetic a 'bittersweet tragedy' feel. Mental, emotional, and spiritual abuse are also common themes in traumacore. Traumacore in general tends to be more focused on trauma experienced in childhood, explaining the cute visuals, although adult trauma can also be covered. Many people turn to these images to help them cope with the pain they suffered in the past. Most images for traumacore are ones of Hello Kitty, dreamcore, nostalgiacore, or even something like a cake, all overlapped with dark messages.

While many people say traumacore isn't inherently an aesthetic, many of the images used in its photo or video edits are derived from other aesthetics. Traumacore is more of a type of art therapy or visual ...

Gurokawa (グロカワ), also known as "Creepy Cute" or 'cute horror' in the West, describes a fashion and aesthetic trend that combines grotesque elements with kawaii.

It is often confused with the Yami Kawaii trend, which revolves around cute medical and dark themes, but Gurokawa has more of a horror theme to it and is rarely in pastels.

The style revolves around horror and gore, with a goth or pastel spin to it. Outfits are usually very casual with a focus on prints, and often feature eyeballs and other human body parts as accessories. Fake blood is commonly used not only for the clothes, but also parts of the make-up.

Morute, a name combining the words "morbid" and "cute," is an aesthetic created in the early 2010's that expresses the dichotomy between a hyper-feminine and childlike softness with grunge and American Gothic elements. It is an outlet for expressing trauma, especially those surrounding eating disorders and mental illness.

Many visuals also suggest physical abuse, sexual assault or precociousness, self-destruction, and physical disability. The child-like imagery serves as a desire to return to a girlhood that was ripped away from them, with the Christian and cute motifs being an idealization of purity and innocence. Religious guilt is a common motif, with the desire to go to Heaven, but feeling unable due to the victim being "dirtied" with whatever traumatized them. Poverty within small-town Americana is also present, and it reflects the influence of horror movies and the idea of home b...

Macaute (pronounced Mah-cute) is an aesthetic coming from the word macabre, which means "disturbing and horrifying because of involvement with or depiction of death and injury." and the word cute, which means "attractive in a pretty or endearing way."

Examples of the macaute aesthetic would be graphic imagery like blood, guts and all sorts of gore (playing into the macabre part of the word) but depicted in a light, cartoonish way. An artist who has made the Macaute aesthetic particularly popular is Jack Stauber, but possibly the earliest example of these aesthetic would be the classic Flash animation Happy Tree Friends.

Macaute fashion may take a lot of inspiration from Kidcore or Scene fashion, but mix it with some gory, bloody, or viscerally disturbing elements in order to achieve the jarring effect that Macaute strives...
