Czech archeologists discover remains of first gay cavemanApril 8th, 2011 - 1:40 am ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Prague, April 7 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Czech Republic archeologists have announced that they have discovered the remains of a “gay” caveman. The scientists say the male body dates back between 2900 B.C. and 2500 B.C.
According to the Telegraph, the scientists arrived at their conclusion that the body is gay based on the way that it was buried. The way that the body was buried is similar to the way that women in the Copper Age were buried.
The lead archeologist, Kamila Remisova Vesinova, explained to reporters in Prague this week that, “From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took funeral rites very seriously so it is highly unlikely that this positioning was a mistake. Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual orientation, homosexual or transsexual.”
Traditionally, men in the Copper Age were buried with weapons, knives and hammers while women were often buried with jugs, pets, jewels and pots. The male body was found with jugs in the grave. The scientists believe that the body may be one of the earliest forms of ‘transsexual’ or ‘third gender’ remains that have been discovered.
