    Archaeologists Find 'Gay Caveman' Near Prague

    Kamila Remisova Vesinova and her team of researchers from the Czech Archeological Society believe they have unearthed the remains of an early homosexual man. The remains date from around 2900-2500 B.C., on the outskirts of Prague.
    There's gotta be a clip from the Flintstones, somewhere in the archives.

    Next week in the National Enquirer: Were Fred and Barney secret lovers? And why was Dino Purple? And, finally, did Jesus really say that homosexuality would lead to sex between man and dinosaur, or was Pat Robertson's ancestor also just being a hateful dick?

    Article is here.

    I agree that the way the man is buried can lead one to speculate on the reasons. Do we know enough about this tribes culture to be able to come to this conclusion? It seems the researcher is convinced the man was homosexual based on the fact that he was buried according to how a woman would be buried, so it may be a good conclusion, but we may never know for sure.

    That claim stems from the fact the 5,000-year-old skeleton was buried in a manner reserved for women in the Corded Ware culture: its head was pointed east rather than west, and its remains were surrounded by domestic jugs rather than by hammers, flint knives and weapons that typically accompany male remains.
    Clearly this man was not homosexual, but rather was simply "honing his flint knife" with several of the neighborhood cavewomen at once, unbeknownst to them. When he was caught, the women undoubtedly surrounded him and beat him to death with their domestic jugs and then left him where he fell, facing to the east, as a warning to the other males in the cave complex.

    Maybe they just didn't like him and decided to dishonor him. I somehow doubt a gay person would live long around manly cavemen.

    How do we know that this guy wasn't hated and that burning him in the typical manner of a female wasn't an act of spite? Also, are cavemen considered cavemen if they are only 5,000 years old?

    Why do you equate manliness with homophobia? Look at the early greeks. Some of them were manlier than almost anyone else in history, and they loved their butt sex
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    They couldn't have possibly accepted him in a female role in their society back then... that would be inhuman, monstrous, and an affront to all my modern bigotry!

    Have we discovered the moral of the tale yet?

    From what I understand, spite would have been leaving his body out to rot, or chopping it up, or something similar. People of that era put a LOT of importance into burials, so it's likely this is significant. If you can think of what else it might mean, I'm all ears.

    The thing I find interesting is this part
    During that period, men were traditionally buried lying on their right side with the head pointing towards the west; women on their left side with the head facing east.

    In this case, the man was on his left side with his head facing west.
    His burial had both male AND female characteristics. I'm definately suspecting a third gender possibility.
