There could be a variety of other explanations for this, but an anomaly like this is definitely interesting.
A lot of speculation here for sure. His method of burial could be for many reasons. Science isn't suppose to have a political agenda.
Personally i think they had the freedom to be there true self's.No religious people saying no you can't none who was fearful of another being true to there personal sexual , mental ,and or who knows .hehe Third i don't think so more like respected as they lived.

Archaeologists make the best storytellers
Transgender-ness is not a sexual orientation (nor is it the same thing as transvestite-ness OR "third-gender" status, whatever that means in any given culture). And aside from the author's complete ignorance of the very words they are using, this whole thing says way more about OUR culture than theirs. Ain't science. Also, what jackalya said about Corded Ware material. Nothing to see here, move along.
They weren't cavemen. There's no such thing as cavemen, but even if there were, these guys weren't it. Notes to consider: The Corded Ware Culture was widespread over much of Europe for thousands of years (not having left written records, they're comparatively obscure); burial practices were apparently not as rigid as the article would have you believe; none of the scientists that announced the discovery actually said anything about a "gay caveman," but instead speculated that the burial in this case _might_ be evidence of transgender status. See:
From the page: Archaeologists investigating a 5,000-year-old Copper Age grave in the Czech Republic believe they may have unearthed the first known remains of a gay or transvestite caveman, reports the Telegraph.
The man was apparently buried as if he were a woman, an aberrant practice for an ancient culture known for its strict burial procedures.
So easy a caveman could do it?
Not all cavemen are insensitive brutes... some of them are fabulous!
