Anthropology conference canceled panel suggesting sex is binary

  • The American Anthropological Association and the Canadian Anthropology Society have canceled a discussion on determining sex through forensic anthropology due to its reliance on assumptions that conflict with established science and harm vulnerable groups.
  • The discussion, which aimed to examine various methods of determining sex and their implications for understanding past cultures, was rejected because it assumed a simplistic binary understanding of sex and gender.
  • This decision comes in the context of ongoing criticism and backlash against the LGBTQ+ community, with legislation being passed in Arkansas and other states to ban gender-affirming medical care for minors, and the exclusion of transgender women from certain sports.
