As a Twitter user @beetaylora casual and shockingly tweeted“Wait for the men to find out there are Waxers [who] ONLY females are growing and not seeing male clients because (guess why)? I really want you all to guess why this could be such a thing?” Who could have foreseen the flood of responses from people who were either not shocked or had witnessed instances of men behaving inappropriately or worse while getting waxed. Honestly, we all could have predicted that.

Responses to the tweet were filled with examples of women from other industries refusing to accept male clients because they had previously been uncomfortable with their unwanted advances. Then an answer caught my eye Bad Feminist Author Roxane Gay, the tweeted, “The rabbit hole I just went down after learning why morgues prefer to hire women. SMH. Putting men in rice.” It’s exactly what you’re thinking, and according to a TikToker, it’s a horrific tale as old as time.

Why do morgues prefer to hire women? Let TikTok guide you.

One of the hosts from the keep it 101 Podcast went to TikTok to give an insight into the history of men and their relationship to the corpses of women. “Unfortunately, Roxane Gay has discovered something, what religions, something like stem cells [2,000] 4,000 years ago rules were already baked in,” she said.

Brace yourself: It’s due to necrophilia, which this woman says is a “wanton disrespect for bodies, predominantly injuries committed by men on non-male bodies.”

She further points out that both Islam and Judaism have rules for same-sex rituals performed on the bodies. The reason for this is both “respect and in line with these religions’ understanding of modesty”. Of course, there is also a dark reason for this rule and it is to protect the body from the “not dead men”. Even in death, women cannot rest.

It’s true, some men can’t be trusted in morgues.

As expected, people who replied to Roxane Gay’s tweet are shocked and appalled by this update. A few people had their own anecdotes, while a few Twitter users posted this story about Kenneth Douglas. According to the New York Postin 2014, Hamilton County, Ohio was sued by family members of several deceased women whose bodies were injured by Douglas between 1976 and 1992.

“After DNA testing uncovered his lewd acts in 2008, Douglas admitted in an affidavit that during his nearly two decades of work at the morgue, he brutally raped and assaulted as many as 100 different female cadavers waiting to be to be autopsied,” the outlet reported. Douglas claimed he was struggling with addiction at the time and would never have done so had he been sober. These are absolute cops, of course – t.

At the time of New York Post Piece, Douglas was in prison for gross mistreatment of a corpse. Per Criminal NewsIn 2015, a settlement was reached between Hamilton County and the families of the postmortem rape victims: “The county agreed to pay $800,000; a $2.45 million default judgment was also obtained against Douglas, although it is unlikely to be recovered.”
