When not to use
Gender of the feature itself
In some rare cases, mappers may be tempted to tag the gender of the feature itself, for example in cases of statues or sculptures of people (example) or deities (example). However, gender=* is used for access restriction by gender of the visitors.
No tag for the gender of the feature itself has been approved. Solutions like statue:gender=* or, more generically feature:gender=* could be conceived. However, it is suggested to discuss this with the community first in case you need it.
