Built in 1886, when transgenderism "didn't exist". Not even in France.
And was reportedly modeled after the artist's mother, so go ahead and work THAT into the theory.

(And actually, we pulled a fast one on France--In the artist's concept Liberty was supposed to be looking back across the Atlantic to her, quote-fingers, "birthplace" in Paris.
But then we wrote the poem about the immigrants, and now she's standing in front, "welcoming" new arrivals to HER home.)

Not quite sure why it matters if the artist used his mother or his brother as a model, it's a piece of art and what it evokes is going to vary from person.

Does it matter?

According to an upcoming Discovery Family channel program, French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi may have used his brother as a model for the Statue of Liberty instead of his mother as most historians believe.


“Going through photos he had in his files of his brother, I started to look at the face more carefully, and it really did look to be like Liberty,” author Elizabeth Mitchell


Yes because as we all know, children can't look anything like their parents, ever.

It doesn't matter as much as what it represents.

At this rate, I'm waiting for someone to argue for the Statue of David being a woman.

I disagree with the assertion that it/he/she/they//xe/zim/bizzle/flibble/wellingtonboot is a statue.... I believe 'monument' is more appropriate.

Why do people feel the need to try to hijack everything for their agendas in such an obvious manner?
