Ancient humans remains are thought to be those of a gay man based on the way he was buried.

"Archaeologists do not think it was a mistake or coincidence given the importance attached to funerals during the period, known as the Corded Ware era because of the pottery it produced."

Helen I also remember though that some of the most infamous deprogression of women has been by women. I have my own partial theory for it.

The fact that another women finds another women more dangerous means that we are more saavy in other venues men may be not. On the other hand it results in things like women getting the last rights and still not being paid fairly ie the glass ceiling. Not to say obviously all wome... [More]

So my hypothesis was the most likely. I guess that makes me king of the thread, ruling over all of the females and homosexuals posting in it. Helen, don't forget to pay your taxes! No, it doesn't.

Could it be the guy was a potter by trade?

Could it be the guy was a potter by trade? Could be, but he was laid to rest on his left side, facing east, which is how that culture buried women. Is it just me, or thereís huge symbolic in the fact that women were worth to face the rising sun, while guys got only the sunset?
