No One Can Tell If This Is A Woman's Back Or Her Neck

The internet loves to argue over optical illusions. Whether it is the color of a dress or some other type of clothing, or figuring out if something is a fence or a river, everyone loves to have an opinion on it. It doesn't even have to be a photo - we all remember the great "laurel" vs "yanny" debate from earlier this year. Now, there is a new picture perplexing the internets. It shows what looks like the back of a woman's head, but it could also be a photo of a woman's back.
The pic was first posted to Facebook by Lil Gothy Spice, who is the woman in the shot. It then got picked up on Twitter by @LilMaarty, who captioned it, "Why tf I thought this was her neck."

The caption confused plenty of people because, well, it looks like it is a close-up shot of a woman's neck. You can even see what look like her ears.

Then there are the other commenters who swear it is a photo of a woman with long hair flowing down her back.

Its the girl back. She sitting down but she has long hair. You have to really focus— Serenity Bee (@serenitybee1) October 7, 2018
The woman in the photo, a model and writer in Chicago, revealed it is indeed her back, but that didn't matter to a bunch of people.

Even though the confusing mystery has been put to an end, some people still have questions:
That’s a grown woman with a little back like that? And where’s her clothes?? I have so many questions— MonoJuice (@anbu_dropoutt) October 7, 2018
