The Arrant Nonsense of Woke Anthropologists' Stance on Human Remains

By Andrea Widburg   July 19, 2022

Those of us who still retain our sanity and understand that people can't magically change their sex based on feelings always had a good arrow in our quiver of arguments: when those twisting themselves into gender pretzels are dead and gone, their bones and DNA will live to tell the tale, and they won't lie: in life, these tangible remnants will say, "This dead person was a man (or a woman)."  College anthropology departments have decided to grapple with this decided non-woke aspect of reality.  The current solution is not to classify remains by sex or even broad racial classifications..........

This February, University of Kansas Associate Professor Jennifer Raff published "Origin: A Genetic History of the Americas," in which she argued that there are "no neat divisions between physically or genetically 'male' or 'female' individuals."  Raff (pictured) suggested scientists cannot know the gender of a 9,000 year-old biologically Peruvian hunter because they don't know whether the hunter identified as male or female — a "duality" concept she says was "imposed by Christian colonizers."

One of the things that makes leftism possible is ignorance: ignorance about human nature, history, reality, and science.  Humans have always understood something fundamental: the human species is divided into those who have the equipment to grow and nurse babies (whether that equipment works or not) and those who have the equipment to get that growth started.  It's not more complicated than that.  Even if that 9,000-year-old Peruvian had a more traditionally male role, what still matter was this: incubate babies or not incubate babies........we're witnessing an effort by woke academics to make sure that their theories no longer clash with one another.  Gender madness can't exist in the same universe as biological reality, so the latter has to change......To Read More....
