Then why is Satan always depicted as a male? For God's sake, what's next? Are we going to rewrite the Medusa as a male just so the PC crowd doesn't get it's panties in a wad? It's a piece of sculpture done in the classical style. You have to work really hard to be offended by it. I sincerely hope you were joking.
Forgot the >/sarc tag. Sorry
Males created the statue, which depicts sirens as women because males created the myths.
When a man first came up with the idea of a siren, who lures you with its beautiful voice/form to your destruction, he made it female.
Because it had to be. Because heterosexual men are very unlikely to be lured to their deaths by a male voice, no matter how melodic. Men would be yelling “shut the hell up, will you” from passing ships. You’d end up “luring” in a bunch of angry guys who wanted to chop your head off.
Male sirens...now there’s a truly horrifying mythical creature.
Time to portray Satan as female. It's the PC thing to do.
Women scare me (and I'm a female)
