A University of Pittsburgh classroom erupted with laughter after a professor argued with swimmer Riley Gaines that an archeologist cannot discern whether a person was male or female by examining their bones.

Gaines became a national figure when she objected to trans swimmer Lia Thomas participating in women’s sports, helping propel a national conversation about whether it is fair to biological women to allow those born as men to compete. Many, such as former Olympian Nancy Hogshead-Makar, have warned that biological males have a clear advantage over biological women due to different body structure.

A video went viral of a confrontation during the Leadership Institute event when Gaines asked senior lecturer at the school’s anthropology department Gabby Yearwood, "If you were to dig up two humans one hundred years from now, both man and woman, could you tell the difference, strictly off of bones?"

"No!" the professor replied as the room erupted in laughter.

Perhaps someone should email this image to Sr. Lecturer Gabby Yearwood:

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
His reply flies in the face of forensic anthropology, and the identification of hundreds, if not thousands of victims of misfortune and murder by skeletal remains and DNA, not to mention Archaeological data going back a couple hundred years.

Just because this professor is not competent enough in this part of the field does not mean it is not so.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Apparently, I know more about this topic than "Prof." Yearwood just by reading a few mystery novels involving forensic anthropology, including those by Aaron Elkins. The first thing the reader learns is the difference between the skeletons of the adult male and the adult female.

I'd love to see that 'evidence'. These people will spout any lie to force feed their cult religion down our throat.

Women are the same as men (god forbid!).
Men are the same as women.
Except women have a vagina, and lactating boobs, and ovaries, and produce eggs.
Other than those small trivial things, Yes. Men and women are exactly the same.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

I've switched away from the few episodes I've come across that were SJW; thankfully that hasn't been too many.

I've seen on TV that archaeologists, anthropologists, coroners, and forensic orthopedists HAVE determined gender by looking at the skeletal structure

The usual tells are found in the pelvic bones, thigh bones, and skull/mandible.

The professor deserved to be laughed at because she was WRONG.

Men and women are different.  Not better, nor worse; just different.
