As we begin seeking for a critique of the model, we might look to the great Renaissance anatomists of the human reproductive organs whom we know to be sharply critical of Galen: Realdus Columbus (best known perhaps for his claim to have "discovered" the clitoris), who reprimanded Galen for saying that the human uterus was similar to the uterus in animals [6] and Andreas Vesalius, whose work is peppered with acusations that Galen wrote about the human uterus without ever having anatomized or even closely inspected one: that instead Galen had described the uterus of dogs and cows.
