Archaeologists have unearthed the 5,000-year-old remains of the world's first gay caveman.

The bones - said to date back to between 2900 and 2500BC - were discovered buried in a manner normally reserved for women of the Corded Ware culture during the Copper Age.

The skeleton was found in a Prague suburb in the Czech Republic with its head pointing eastwards and surrounded by domestic jugs - rituals only previously seen in female graves.

Aw Bless him, I found that quite moving. If he was gay I wonder what it was like for him back then? I do hope he had a good life :innocent:

What I see in the article is a plethora of assumptions especially the idea that everyone adhered strictly to just one way of doing things.

My first impression was that it was someones son and the mother buried the urns with him so he wouldn't be lonely.
Could have been a pair and the female mate buried the urns for the same reason.

Anthropologists have indeed learned much but there is still much to learn and hypothesis and extrapolations are not the same thing as fact which we will never really have..at least not now.

Maybe he was just a cross-dresser.  :blush:

My first thought was maybe he dishonored the clan/tribe some way so they killed him and wanted him to live in eternal misery so they dishonoered him in death by burying him as a woman.

That was what I was wondering too...

A gay caveman? Sounds like a fundamentalist Christian's worst enemy.

I think the experts have deduced it correctly. Here we have the first 'gay caveman', plain and simple. And it looks like he was probably accepted by the rest of them too, which shows me that gay intolerance is only a disease of some people, down through the ages.

THE FIRST? Probably not. But s/he could have been a "two-spirit", which were revered by many so-called primitive cultures. I agree with Evilution13: intolerance is mostly a modern disease, although I'm sure each culture has their own beliefs on the matter.

Gender is fluid.... we all embody aspects of both, culturally defined, while some embody more of one than the other, no matter what's under the clothes.

Peace.

Liberal researchers trying to make homosexuality a natural, even ancient, characteristic of man...

No truth to this ridiculous claim...

I agree.   Just assumptions based off of other assumptions.

Sad to say, but I'd have to somewhat agree with you.  It is a ridiculous claim.  My first thought was that it was a eunuch, that played a domestic role.  There are may more plausible scientific explanations other then playing the gay card.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

It's silly for either side to take sides since there's a lack of comparison evidence, y'all get a grip! One thing though, it has been found that those of a bi-sexual nature have been revered by some cultures as a liaison between males and females.
