Transgender Benders Push to Bar Anthropologists from Identifying Human Remains as Male or Female


LGBT activists are pushing to bar anthropologists from identifying human remains as "male" or "female," arguing that scientists cannot know how an ancient individuals identified themselves.

Canadian Master's degree candidate Emma Palladino took to Twitter earlier this month to point out that transgender individuals "can't escape" their sex, not because it's physically impossible to change one's sex, but because archaeologists who find their bones one day "will assign you the same gender as you had at birth."

"My trans+non-binary friends: 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," Palladino wrote in a tweet, which has since garnered over 10,000 retweets, and more than 59,000 likes.
