You’ve head about the hoopla.
And now you’re coming to me for the hot angle that seemingly nobody else has thought of.
Why must Fearless Girl be a white girl? Remember, social justice. The statue isn’t truly social justice-y because she’s not L’Booshondraniqua. Because social justice.
And what’s with this oppressive cishetnormativity of having her wear a dress ?
We know the real reason why Fearless Girl looks like any given eight-year old daughter of the kind of people that work around there. It’s because the sculptor wants to make those kind of people feel guilty, she wants to make the unproblem of the Wall Street executive gender gap and glass ceiling a personal one for those who work around there and pass by there every day. Exceedingly few of them would have a daughter that looks like Jumarshwellah.
