This all started with a simple tweet. I'm sure the young lady who started it had no idea how quickly this was going to spread. Now a group of users are claiming that all women have a freckle located in the middle of their wrists.
The tweet, posted on May 22, went viral, garnering tens of thousands of reactions.
“Ladies… you got a freckle on the middle of your wrist or is this a myth,” Aaryn, the user, asked on Twitter. She didn’t mention which wrist.

According to "Freckles are flat small tan or light-brown spots on sun-exposed skin." So having some on you simply means you have been exposed to sun. Your wrist is an area of the body that frequently sees sunlight. But that hasn’t stopped people from freaking out over the so-called phenomenon.
Here are some of my favorite Tweets:
so weird that I’m only just realising that every girl has a freckle on their wrist, I thought i was just unique— Eloise (@eloiseewynn) May 26, 2019
However, some posted photos of their sans-a-freckle wrist, disproving the allegation that “all women” have it.
I looked down at my wrist. Lo and behold. I have a lone freckle. Do you?
