Casimir Pulaski was Intersex: Reports

Casimir Pulaski was intersex, new reports say. See here and here


  1. I'm happy to post dissenting comments that are supported with facts. The above-linked articles do support their assertion with facts from the exhumation of Pulaski's corpse, and DNA analysis.

  2. The BBC article to which you link has this title: "Casimir Pulaski may have been woman or intersex, study says". Notice MAY HAVE. They do not sound convinced themselves.

    I took anthropology, and a gracile female-looking skeleton with a wide hip can belong to a 100% male.

    Years ago, we used to see all kinds of news stories about such-and-such a historical figure being possibly gay, and now we are seeing the same about being possibly transgender.

  3. "I took anthropology"

    One course does not qualify anyone to comment authoritatively on a skeleton.

  4. The Polonia Center recently made this statement about the conjectural and ideology-driven claim that Pulaski was intersex:

    1. How do you know that the report was ideology driven? What I read was based on scientific analysis of a skeleton. That's science, not ideology.

  5. The report plainly states that that the skeleton "may have" been female. That's ideology, not science.


Bieganski the Blog exists to further explore the themes of the book Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype, Its Role in Polish-Jewish Relations and American Popular Culture.
These themes include the false and damaging stereotype of Poles as brutes who are uniquely hateful and responsible for atrocity, and this stereotype's use in distorting WW II history and all accounts of atrocity.
This blog welcomes comments from readers that address those themes. Off-topic and anti-Semitic posts are likely to be deleted.
