Skip to comments.Gender activists push to bar anthropologists from identifying human remains as ‘male’ or ‘female’

As soon as ancient human remains are excavated, archaeologists begin the work of determining a number of traits about the individual, including age, race and gender.
But a new school of thought within archaeology is pushing scientists to think twice about assigning gender to ancient human remains.
It is possible to determine whether a skeleton is from a biological male or female using objective observations based on the size and shape of the bones. Criminal forensic detectives, for example, do it frequently in their line of work.
But gender activists argue scientists cannot know how an ancient individual identified themselves.
“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 Canadian Master’s degree candidate Emma Palladino last week.
Palladino, who is seeking an advanced degree in archaeology, called assigning gender to an ancient human “bullshit.”
“Labelling remains ‘male’ or ‘female’ is rarely the end goal of any excavation, anyway,” wrote Palladino. “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.”
She is not alone. Gender activists have formed a group called 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.”
“We propose a gender-expansive approach to human identification by combing missing and unidentified databases looking for contextual clues such as decedents wearing clothing culturally coded to a gender other than their assigned sex,” the group’s mission statement reads.

Next level stupidity.
The activists should be told to eff off.
This stupidity is getting out of hand. In their lusts and desires for sexual perversion, now they want to change history.

In a few thousand years someone digging through a pile of dirt should find their images on a milk carton.
I really thought this was the Bee... sadly no
Apparently, you can’t fix stupid. And they are REALLY stupid.
OK activists, just stop it. These people are the most ridiculous folks on the planet. The train of thought they are pushing is unscientific and in a scientific field that is very important to humanity...not to just those who think like they do. Just looking for their 2 minutes of fame.
But then, the woke claim truth, objectivity, math,and science are all products of whiteness.
Total moronic bulls^^t! These idiots are brain damaged. I think they should be locked up before they hurt thrmselves, or even worse hurt the people they ARE trying to hurt.
Gender activists must be destroyed
More discussion here from yesterday’s thread:
Yeah, sure, have someone trying to classify the skeletal remains of an unknown missing person as “who can say?” That should help police investigations.
If trannies keep this crap up, they are going to be shoved back into the closet, the door is going to be locked, and the key is going to be thrown away.
This isn’t the Bee?
This type of nonsense is what passes for academic scholarship at many institutions. Many are tax supported. Not only will this schizoid be granted an advanced degree but she will inevitably be hired by liked minded people to teach at these places. The time to defund these institutions and abolish taxpayer funded tenure is long overdue.
New school of thought within archaeology puts up help I need a life sign.
Had to look, not the BEE
This is how minorities control majorities, Change the language so you are only allowed to “think” in approve terms.
Making finding the truth impossible.
Palladino has some serious personal issues and should not be a candidate for an advanced degree. Her hangups could have serious consequences regarding human development for years to come.
