"He's buried alongside the monument there's marble slab that almost all of his skeletal remains are buried underneath. Do you think the plaque? I'm assuming there's a plaque the mom you should be rewritten. At some point. It's a hard thing to say what what should be on the plaque because at some level. There should be an acknowledgement of intersex. But also his accomplishments for not that he was intersex is accomplished. That's that. He was Casimir Polaski the guy who created a really really functional American cavalry at a time when this was like, cutting edge technology, and was this charismatic leader that inspired lots and lots of people around him. Him. Maybe it's just a PS at the bottom of the plaque. By the way. He was intersex. It's. It's kind of a thing because you don't wanna plus story just to be about the dinner stack because that's really most of his story. That's just kind of like this extra little tidbit. But, you know, this is also this tidbit that might completely cast a different light on aspects of his story that we haven't really thought about or haven't really looked at in such great detail in examining his biography is maybe you know, we could or should have in the future Virginia Hutton mess brook is an anthropology professor Georgia Southern university.

"I think largely because as almost a sort of semiotics point, it makes sense, the is a terrorist organization, but on the other hand there risks there risks that Iran might rise to the bait which they have not done for previous provocations at Washington and lead to in school, Tori cycle. There's also a risk that just at some lower level. A commander might see this rhetorical back and forth and say, hey, we've got we've got a terrorist on the other side of battlefield. Whether that's in Iraq, Syria, and the Gulf or elsewhere and provoke a flare up that neither side was really intending. So I mean, do you see this as any kind of pressure on Rondo a designation like this? I do not think that it is meaningful pressure on Iran at all the see the government of Iraq on our sue substantially sanctioned already that I don't see there being any new pressure here. What are you going to be watching for next year? Well, again, I think that it's entirely possible that adjust ends here. Both sides have made their point. And we move on with a bad, but not the tier eating relationship. I think there's a big question about what this means from Washington is this an indication that the hardliners in the Trump administration have won the debate. And they're going to keep reading until they create a crisis alternatively is an indication that they've lost the debate. And this was just sort of a not particularly substantive sop that was thrown to them. Or finally, this is an administration that has real problems with internal policy coordination is this just a decision in a vacuum. That doesn't tell us anything really about what comes next with her on. Joint blank is senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for international peace. He was the State Department's lead coordinator for implementing the Iran nuclear deal, President Obama Jarrett. Thanks for your time. Thank you two things. You should know about revolutionary war hero Casimir Pulaski. He's the father of the American cavalry. And he was intersects born with both male and female, chromosomes and anatomy that aspect of his identity wasn't known during his lifetime in the seventeen hundreds but several years ago Casimir Polaski skeletal remains were exhumed in Savannah, Georgia when the monument they were in was in disrepair that gave scientists chance to do a full forensic workup. And that's where Virginia Hutton esta. Brooke comes into the picture, she's an anthropology professor at Georgia Southern university who worked on the Polaski case. And she says when they XM the skeleton they discovered something surprising. What was discovered then was that the skeleton looks very female for all of the point. It's that we use frenziedly to look at sex all of those points skewed in the very female direction. There some geometry of a female Hollis that basically widens the birth canal area a bit sort of ways these things are expressed all very female looking these female traits. Tell us then about general Casimir Polaski what they tell us is that there is some level of female pattern developments happening in Polaski in this person that we have his Mwale records from end he's baptized as Casimir he'd baptize the son of parents and this linguistic difference in social sciences between sex and gender actually comes to pretty good use here, his gender was absolutely macula throughout his life. There's no question of what his kind of soc. Sial role was from birth on. And because he was baptized as a son there's early portrait's of him that clearly show facial hair and know, even some little like hair milk boldness thinning going on. There's definitely features that show some presence of Andhra jen's happening in his body..

"From forty five years ago today that was vin scully calling hank aaron's recordbreaking seven hundred fifteenth home run hank karen went on a hit a total of seven hundred fifty five home runs over his twenty three year career and that recor stood until two thousand seven when it was broken by berry bonds let me pull off ski was he's famous polish american general during the revolutionary war he has gone down in history as a hero end as a biological man but according to new dna research general polaski will likely intersex having both male and female sex characteristics it's even possible that the general was female researchers have suspected in four years based on skeletal remains but were never able to confirm virginia hutton after brooke is an assistant professor amount apology a georgia southern university and one of the researchers we reached her in savannah professor broke what did you think when you first saw these polls this of this general plaski when you first saw so would it look like yeah so what i thought was wow yes i totally see what is being said n y you know other people who looked at this think that this looks very female because it does look very female there were years of people trying to figure out if they these remains were buried were actually general plaski tell us a bit about the history of trying to figure out who he might have this is really him yeah so the initial confusion along time ago was there were historical accounts plaski the buried at sea and there is this oral traditions one family the polaski was buried in their plantation and so these plantation remains had been exumed and put into this monument but this had been met with a lot of skepticism at the time of it continued through the twentieth century when this monument was actually needing to be refurbish 'cause the foundation was falling apart a little bit and so there is this idea that they were going to take out these remains that were inside of a metal box inside of the monument and actually figure out who this was whether this is plaski or not and that's where they hit the first roadblock which was that these remains look very female but there were other features of these remains that were consistent with plaski so things like age a death then heights and some healed injuries that were consistent with you'll injuries that we'd known about a firm plaski all of these things looked looked very plaski ask except for the whole female female skeleton thing happening but eventually you were able to determine i guess through dna that this is almost definitely general polaski so we'll see a man or a woman so general plaski was a man so by this is where you know sort of social science distinctions between sex and gender is actually really important because everything we know about last you like lift existence as a person bob in through life is that he was baptized as the son of his parents and recognize as masculine all through his life so there's no doubt that his experience was as as a man what's interesting sting is that the skeletal remains that we have are showing that there was clearly something else going on that he may or may not have been completely aware of what's the factors the plaski was never married he didn't have any children but again there's other sort of historical reasons for this he was in exile for awhile from poland and you know he spent time dreamy american revolution and he died very young died at only thirty four years old because you're only dealing with skeletal remains you don't have have any oregon's petition you can't see if there is a there was a uterus or gonads alive because you don't have anything of that nature so general plaski presented it as a man do people know that is there anything in the history that suggest he was intersex not really i mean what the history suggests is that and obviously be baptized as i thought he would have had to have exhibited at least male enough looking genitalia tally is a baby that they made that choice on he clearly had facial hair from all of you early portrait show him with a mustache an even sort of a bit of receding hairline male pattern baldness stuff so i mean those those features would have been consistent mocked him as a man during his his life i mean what we do we do have some discussions around sort of he was fairly aloof if you didn't really have a lot of like close associates and he was very very popular and people admired him but didn't necessarily have people that were close to him but whether you know that's not necessarily you know diagnostic of intersects experience but it is you know relatively consistent with experience with a lot of people who are intersex there's this sort of separation but again we really don't know how this affected his life we know that at as today but there is still a great deal of confusion as to how people who are intersex 'em or transgender gender which are different things should should liv what's intervention should be if there should be any at all it's still confusing now so what was it like in the seventeen hundreds how how general plaski been a treated if it had been known that he was intersex at the time the only people who were recognized as intersex you know the at least knowledge of that is made its way down and historical wrecker on where people who actually showed two distinct kind of genitalium you know that was part of you know sort of this idea of like medical marvel at the time so i don't think there was even a diagnosis at the time they would have necessarily described what what's going on for plaski just knowledge of this information change history of though it depends upon how you wanna think about this so at at one level it doesn't change anything we you know we know about polaski polaski accomplishments and his legacy and it doesn't you know sort of diminishing in any way it does potentially give some representation of intersex individuals who have not really been represented in the historical record much before there's lots of racer of of intersex because sort of socially and also sort of medically we didn't really understand what intersex was for so long so you know at some level it doesn't sort of change what he did but another level it opens up his story to be a story that can be shared as a really relevant story to a group of people that don't necessarily find themselves well represented in the past very interesting story professor after book i appreciate you telling it to us thank you oh gosh my pleasure well thank you so much for talking to me by the by virginia houghton at the brooke is and assistant professor amount apology at georgia southern university we reached her in savannah and we do have more on this story.

That's interesting researchers at Georgia Southern university examined the remains of general Casimir Polaski found he may have been biologically female. Professor Virginia Hutton esta Brooke tells the Chicago Tribune that Polaski had an intersex condition known as congenital adrenal hypol- plasma. That causes women to produce large amounts of mail steroid hormones, making them look masculine. So it is possible. That Polaski was a woman just looked like a man, by the way Polaski is known as the father of the American Calvary not anymore. The mother of all. Skyway at anymore. Are there any highway.
