ender activists want anthropologists to be prevented from identifying human remains as male or female because it is not known how ancients would have self-identified.
No, this is not satire….the woke culture is now starting to creep it way into science
Criminal forensic psychologists, archaeologists and anthropologists have long had the skills to identify whether a body is male or female based on a number of traits, including the size and shape of bones.
But the far ledt activists are now arguing that it is not possible to determine, by their bones, how an ancient person “identified themselves”.
Canadian Master’s degree candidate Emma Palladino took to twitter earlier this month to complain:
“You might know the argument that the archaeologists who find your bones one day will assign you the same gender as you had at birth, so regardless of whether you transition, you can’t escape your assigned sex”
Summit News reports: Palladino, who is studying for an advanced degree in archaeology, went on to assert that it was “bullshit” to assign gender to an ancient human.
“Labelling remains ‘male’ or ‘female’ is rarely the end goal of any excavation, anyway,” she wrote. “The ‘bioarchaeology of the individual’ is what we aim for, factoring in absolutely everything we discover about a person into a nuanced and open-ended biography of their life.”
The tweet went viral and received over 44,000 likes.
Yes, because I’m sure there were countless people wandering around thousands of years ago identifying as gender non-binary, claiming they were actually wolves, or penguins, or hippos.
