Skip to comments.Anthropologists Call for an End to Classifying Human Remains by Gender and Ancestry
Posted on 07/18/2022 1:15:49 PM PDT by bitt
There is an interesting controversy brewing in anthropology departments where professors have called for researchers to stop identifying ancient human remains by biological gender because they cannot gauge how a person identified at that the time. Other scholars are calling for researchers to stop identifying race as a practice because it fuels white supremacy. One of the academics objecting to this effort to stop gender identifications, San Jose State archaeology Professor Elizabeth Weiss, is currently suing her school. Weiss maintains that she was barred from access to the human remains collection due to her opposition to the repatriation of human remains. The school objected that she posted a picture holding a skull from the collection on social media, expressing how she was “so happy to be back with some old friends.”
The conservative site College Fix quotes various academics in challenging the identification of gender and notes the campaign of the Trans Doe Task Force to “explore ways in which current standards in forensic human identification do a disservice to people who do not clearly fit the gender binary.”
University of Kansas Associate Professor Jennifer Raff argued in a paper, “Origin: A Genetic History of the Americas,” that there are “no neat divisions between physically or genetically ‘male’ or ‘female’ individuals.” Her best selling book has been featured on various news outlets like MSNBC.

APPARENTLY WE CAN’T CALL CAVE MEN “CAVE MEN” BECAUSE THEY AREN’T HERE TO TELL US THEIR PRONOUNS...
These people need to be dragged by an organic hemp rope through a non-gendered minefield by a rainbow colored unicorn.
I normally like the Bee, but their satire has to be plausible to work.
Have we reached peak ludicrous yet?
I double checked, it’s not the Bee.
This ideology is like the burning of the library of Alexandria. So much accumulated understanding will be lost.
Why aren’t self-respecting biologists raising hell everywhere?
🤡🌎 is where we are at for sure.
because cavefag’ sounds weird.
...when I first saw this article, I thought wow, the Bee has done it again...what a hoot...! then I started reading more closely and saw the by-line and.....this is absurdity on steroids...
Idiocracy, here we come!
Rewriting anthropological history. Leftists now imposing their wackiness on the dead.
Sure they do.
Not gonna pay attention anymore.
Before a few years ago, we knew what basic biology was.
Ancient people did not have time to invent new genders.
They were too busy surviving each day.
I thought it had to be the Bee. I expected two scientists talking. On says “this it has a pecker”. The other says “ this it don’t “. Huh! Guess we’ll never know if they walked upright or ran everywhere. What a load of 💩.
Redefining idiocy with each passing day.
Hey Babylon Bee? Shut your doors. Nothing, no satire you author, can compare to reality in 2022.
This is why science is no longer trusted. It has been absurdly politicised.
One of the arguments against the delusion of men pretending to be women (and vice versa) has been, “When the body is dug up 1000 years from now they’ll identify you as male, no matter what wore or cut off.” Looks like they’re trying to nip that argument in the bud.
