Woke libtards attack anthropology, claiming ancient skeletons can’t be labeled “men” or “women” because they might have identified as transgender
By Ethan Huff // Jul 22, 2022

Is it possible for the long-dead remains of a human being to be transgender? According to some left-wing academics, the answer is yes.

Jennifer A. Raff, an anthropology professor from The University of Kansas, claims that there are "no neat divisions between physically or genetically 'male' or 'female' individuals" – and she is not alone in this belief.

There is actually an entire movement called the "Trans Doe Task Force" that aims to "explore ways in which current standards in forensic human identification do a disservice to people who do not clearly fit the gender binary," the goal being to do away with both gender and race identification of ancient remains.

Thousands of years ago, Raff and others like her claim, some men may have self-identified as "women," and vice versa. Because of this, no forensic analysis of skeletal remains today should include any assumptions about gender.

"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," tweeted Emma Palladino, a Canadian master's degree candidate, in agreement with the movement.

Western civilization is done for as long as these people are running things

Because there is apparently nothing else more pressing or important for these people to focus on, Raff, Palladino and others are forging ahead with efforts to completely transform the practice of archeology and anthropology to suit their perversions.

Up until now, researchers in the field have easily identified the gender of a skeleton based on shape and size of bones, for instance. Women appear one way while men appear another way – but this triggers gender activists like the aforementioned.

"Labelling remains 'male' or 'female' is rarely the end goal of any excavation, anyway," Palladino further whined.

"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 Trans Doe Task Force has as its mission a goal of transforming anthropology into a "gender-expansive" playground where researchers comb "missing and unidentified databases looking for contextual clues such as decedents wearing clothing culturally coded to a gender other than their assigned sex."

"We maintain our own database of missing and unidentified people who we have determined may be Transgender or gender-variant, as most current database systems do not permit comparison of missing to unidentified across different binary sex categories," the group says.

According to Raff, there is no way to know whether or not a several thousand-year-old skeleton presenting as a female Peruvian hunter is really female because of "duality," a concept she says was "imposed by Christian colonizers."

It is also apparently "racist" to even try to identify the race of skeletal remains. These same trans crusaders claim that it represents "white supremacy" to label any skeletons as anything other than agender, asexual and a-racial bones with no actual meaning.

"Ancestry estimation contributes to white supremacy," claim Elizabeth DiGangi of Binghamton University and Jonathan Bethard of the University of South Florida in a study they co-wrote, declaring the practice to be "dangerous."

"Where do these nutcase lunatics all come from?" asked someone who reads the Jonathan Turley blog, which covered the issue at length.

"Leftism is absolutely a pathological mental disorder," wrote another. "If you are just going to deny that there are men and women and differing ethnic groups, you're not a scientist anymore, but a fanatical propagandist."
