The site of a “controversial” speaking event featuring former collegiate swimmer Riley Gaines, who competed in NCAA events during the contentious involvement of biological male Lia Thomas’s senior year, erupted into chaos when the former swimmer asked a woke anthropologist if the study of ancient human remains could yield information about the nature of the dead person’s sex.”
“I actually have a question for you. You being an anthropologist, which anthropology is the study of human civilization–” Gaines prefaced her question of the unidentified academic.
“So if you were to dig up a human, two humans, in 100 years from now, both man and woman, could you tell the difference, strictly off of bones?” she then asked.
In the hard-to-watch, which evidences the absolute decay and mockery of learning that higher education now produces, Gaines’ object of inquiry responds with just a one-word answer.
“No,” the anthropologist declared as the room burst into uncontrollable laughter. Take a look at the ridiculous exchange.

“I’m not sure why I’m being laughed at if I’m the expert in the room,” the anthropologist continued after most of the people in the room lost themselves in a fit of incredulous laughter. “Have any of you been to archeological 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.”
“I actually, believe it or not, have put a lot of research into this because –” Gaines attempted to respond, before being cut off by the helplessly woke professor, who said, “I have a Ph.D.,” before the crowd once again rejoined in a second round of laughter.
Riley Gaines has been making several speaking appearances lately, sharing her story about competing against Thomas and confronting the current mainstream narratives and forced – not just acceptance, but celebration – of the transgender community.
The former Kentucky swimmer noted that whereas sudden superstar Dyland Mulvaney gets paid by the school tens of thousands of dollars to show up, she gets threatened with violence.
“When Dylan Mulvaney comes to UPitt, he gets paid $26,000 from school funding. When Riley Gaines comes to UPitt, she gets protested, threatened with violence, and attempted to get the event canceled by students, faculty, and lawmakers,” Gaines tweeted. “Something tells me I’m doing something right.”

“The University of Pittsburgh recently allocated a reported $26,000 to host trans activist Dylan Mulvaney but petitioned to cancel an event featuring women’s rights activist Riley Gaines,” the Independent Women’s Forum had reported on Twitter. “Example of #ProgressivePrivilege — bigotry of cancel culture.”
In fairness to the college, unlike many other woke institutions that cowardly hide behind a fake banner of inclusivity, the University of Pittsburgh defended Gaines’ right to speak. Chancellor Patrick Gallagher put forth a firm statement defending the rights of people with different opinions to share them on the taxpayer-funded campus.
“The university is a place of dialogue and in fact both constitutional and academic free speech are things that I am obligated to support. Which means that many of the rules governing, in this case extracurricular activities by registered student organizations has to be applied independent of the content of the events,” he said. “The safety of our students is never a question here, even in these difficult times.”
