Was Julius Caesar male or female? Be careful not to assume, or you might offend the dead emperor.
These are the new rules being thrust upon academics, as chronicled by the conservative education-based publication The College Fix on Monday.
“Gender activists push to bar anthropologists from identifying human remains as ‘male’ or ‘female,’” the headline reads.
The paper outlines a movement in anthropology to adopt the left’s new orthodoxy on sex, by which it already dishes out retribution against those who refuse to play along.
“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,” The College Fix reported. “But gender activists argue scientists cannot know how an ancient individual identified themselves.”
A group called the “ Trans Doe Task Force ” has begun the process of exploring “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,” reads the mission statement.In other words, occasional cross-dressing, which is common among children and adolescents today as it was hundreds of years ago, might be code for transgenderism. Thus a snapshot into the life of an ancient person for whom evidence suggests engagement in the practice must mean that individual was transgender and should be identified as such.That instant identification conforms with today’s knee-jerk approach, which is enshrined by “gender-affirming care,” leaving people’s questions about their own identity without scrutiny.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
