Riley Gaines schools anthropologist on differences between men and women

"I’m just saying, I’ve got over 150 years of data, I’m just curious as to why I’m being laughed at," the professor said.


A room of students at the University of Pittsburgh burst into laughter earlier this week after an anthropology professor suggested to former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines that there is no difference between the bone structure of a male and female.

A video went viral on social media after Gaines engaged Gabby Yearwood, senior lecturer at the university’s anthropology department. Gaines prompted Yearwood: "If you were to dig up two humans one hundred years from now, both man and woman, could you tell the difference, strictly off of bones?"

The professor responded: "No," to which the entire room subsequently erupted into laughter, likely due to the absurdity of the response.

The professor could not believe that they would be the target of laughter, given that they were "the expert in the room."

The professor continued: "Have any of you been to anthropological sites? Have any of you studied biological anthropology? I’m just saying, I’ve got over 150 years of data, I’m just curious as to why I’m being laughed at." He quickly followed up his comments with, "I have a PhD!"

It has been a scientific fact that male and female bone structures are inherently different, based on many years of anthropological forensics and studies. However, Fox News reported that there are now some within the academic community who are challenging this well-founded strand of science in an effort to cater to transgender ideology.

Gaines noted: "Every single rational person knows the answer: men have narrower hips, their skulls are different, they have an extra rib, their femurs are longer, their jaws are different."

"When he said ‘No,’ it just highlighted that even someone with a PhD was willing to lie to virtue signal or to put off this perception that sex is a social construct, which we know is not the case."

The Independent Women’s Forum took to Twitter following the incident, posting: "This is how far removed the Left is from reality that they must deny basic scientific facts. @Riley_Gaines_ might not have a PhD in anthropology like Professor Yearwood, but she and her teammates know the physical advantages of biological males over females in sport firsthand."

Gaines gained national prominence after she spoke out about biological males competing with women’s sports, which has ignited a conversation about whether there really are biological advantages that men have over women when it comes to competitive sports, per Fox News.
