I love this statue, in fact, I like them both and exactly it's location. The fearless girl statue should stay up forever and people who take offense to it, don't need to go visit it, it's really that simple. Imagine the statue were a little boy, there would be nothing but good things said about it. Things like, the boy is so brave and strong or he's a protector. Why can't this little girl be brave and strong AND a protector without it getting negative feedback from the public. For whatever reason it was put there, people should disregard that and just appreciate the beauty of a little girl standing up for herself.
