While this may not be one of our traditional success stories, this is quite possibly further evidence that we have always been here and that in and of itself is a success for our community.
Archaeologists have discovered a 5,000-year-old skeleton which they believe may be the remains of a transgender person.
Men’s bodies from that age and culture are usually found buried with their heads towards the west and with weapons.
But this skeleton was found with its head towards the east and was surrounded by domestic jugs – as women’s bodies from the time are usually found.
At a press conference in Prague yesterday, archaeologists theorised that the person may have been transgender or ‘third sex’.
Kamila Remišová, the head of the research team, said: “From history and ethnology, we know that when a culture had strict burial rules they never made mistakes with these sort of things.”
The article also states that:
This is not the first time a skeleton has been found buried as a member of the opposite sex. One woman from the Mesolithic period, who was assumed to be a warrior, was found buried with weapons.
“transgender is new trend” go fuck yourselvea
Trans people have always existed.
Something I realised, after having to help many international tourists count out their change, is that American coins don’t actually have the number value on them??? Like no wonder all these poor tourists are so confused
it just fucking says one “dime”
what the fuck is a dime
how much is it worth
whose idea was this
oh my god i never even realized that what the hell we all just sort of know what they’re worth through some sixth sense bullshit
Also, you bastards don’t put the real prices on things, and everything’s “and ninety nine cents” or whatever so I have SO MANY PENNIES that I couldn’t get rid of because I could never work out what the exact cost of things was before I got to the counter.
I never understood that trope of the old lady counting out pennies at the counter until I actually went to America. We all do that in the line while we’re waiting!
(Okay, mostly we used credit/eftpos, but when we pay cash we can do the county thing before we see the total come up.)
Fun Fact about Jen: ‘Cause I’m from the UK and have only been to the US a handful of times, I have difficulty recognising which of your coins are what and I feel like it takes me way to long to work it out and that people are judging me for it. If I’m in a position where I’m handling money for the company any may be required to deal with change, I require a dedicated volunteer or other staff member nearby to handle the coins for me. I’m not kidding. This has happened.
