Speaking of the raw & the cooked, where “raw” is sex and “cooked” is gender: archaeologists have found an individual with male skeletal anatomy who was buried about 5,000 years ago in a typically female manner. This individual comes from the Corded Ware Culture of Europe, and was found outside Prague. The skeleton was buried in the same orientation as women of that culture, and with an egg-shaped pot associated with womens’ burial rites. Absent were masculine cultural markers such as weapons. A short article by The Telegraph describes this find in more detail.
