If Christ was female, after she was nailed to the cross would she have more followers?

You have to wonder, if Christ was female, the apostles might want to bone her, too. And the crucifixion, that whole carrying the cross thingy might seem a little odd. Just saying.

I don't think Christ would have had any followers if Christ were female.

Women didn't have rights then. Your duty as a woman was to your father until you were married and then to your husband and his family. Female Christ would have been married by the age of 16, not traipsing around the Middle East.

But, assuming that female Christ would have been respected and able to have done everything male Christ did, I think she probably would have been raped long before she was nailed on the cross.

She wouldn't have been raped because God would have protected her just like he protected baby Jesus from king Herod. I think her story would have been similar to Esther's who became a queen and was never raped.

God only let Jesus suffer the way he did because it was predestined and in accordance with his plan but something like rape would have never been allowed, he didn't even like the idea of letting Mary have sex to conceive Jesus like any other human being. Rape=dirty.

I also don't think that the apostles might want to bone her. Why do you think that? the apostles left everything in order to follow Jesus and they followed Jesus just because they believed he was the chosen Son of God, they didn't care about wives, women or sex.

For female Jesus, everyone would have been expecting her because the arrival of the Son of God(the daughter of God, in this case) was already aforementioned in the scriptures that's why everyone was expecting Jesus. I see no difference if it was a female. It would have been harder because of the role of females back then but I don't think anything would have changed. There are many strong women in the Bible and strong queens.

Instead of carrying a cross, maybe she would have been accused of being a prostitute, especially if she was surrounded by the apostles the whole time and they would have stoned her to death.

Here, have a Gatorade; you must be worn out and sweating from trying so hard.

Besides, SNL's Father Guido Sarducci already came up with the most compelling argument for Jesus as a male:
In the Wedding of Cana, where Jesus turned the water into wine, all the guests came to the host and said "You have saved the best for last!"--Meaning, Jesus not only turned the water into wine, but turned it into good wine.
And everyone knows, women can't tell good wine from Cold Duck.

^ This. She might have risen to a rank of sainthood or something similar due to her healing abilities but if she were to say she was the daughter of god the vast majority of people wouldn't take her seriously. But to my knowledge the archetypal savior character doesn't tend to be female to be honest I don't know of any stories that do portray the savior as female. Nevertheless I would assert that it would be such a stark contrast to that region that it wouldn't garner much attention so to answer your question no she wouldn't.

They did not have any bras back then, and have you seen how they portrayed the male Jesus? He's ripped while hanging on the cross. Bread and fish diet, my friend.

Imagine how hot a female Jesus would be.
