Progressive professor claims female skeleton “did not exist” before the enlightenment

It’s not often that I’m stunned into disbelief by the words of a sociologist. As a sociology honours student, I’ve felt I’ve become emotionally and intellectually insulated against the Judith Bulterisms and intellectual gymnastics so often associated with my field. At this point, I’ve seen it all. But an April 3rd tweet-thread and earlier engagements by Leeds sociology professor Sally Hines left me toggling my settings. And no, this isn’t about her now-infamous claim that “before the enlightenment the female skeleton did not exist”.
