Ancient trans warrior “discovered” at Siberian dig

A visualization of Jane does well to display her trans-ness, but some say she looks Europeanized and much older than the supposed 16 at death.

In our male-dominated world, when a woman of authority is recognized, be her alive or centuries gone, the key to her power is unfailingly attributed to men.

3 BC Jane might have been seen on a Saturday night riding the plains with her crew.

Such is the case of our Siberian trans ancestor originally discovered in 1990 in the Altai Republic. Jane’s feminine attire conflicted with the male warrior artifacts with which she was buried. It was assumed at that time that Jane was genetically¬†female and accordingly fetishised and declared a “virgin amazon warrior princess’‘.

New DNA testing shows that she was genetically male, or as we know now, a transgender woman.

Traditional burials of the Pazyryk cultural normally made a clear distinction between genders but not so with our warrior.

For the sake of brevity and honor, we’ll name our predecessor ‘Jane’. She was interred with weapons, male headdress and 9 horses, some bridled all indicating great wealth power and equestrian skill. This was needed to survive as these nomadic people lived in on a mountainous plateau giving them access to and perhaps control of trade routes between what is now modern day Russia, China, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia.
