Chrono-Gender-Bender Poll

A followup to the supervillain poll of yesterday. You have perfected a chrono-gender-bender ray, allowing you to adjust the sex (body type) of historical figures from the safety and comfort of your own Laboratory of Doom. So what do you do?

Calibration shot, applied to a currently-living celebrity, but back when they were age three or so, so they have no particular memory of being otherwise.

Lady Gaga → Lord Gagus
6(37.5%)
Madonna → Mondonno
0(0.0%)
Boy George → Girl Georgina
4(25.0%)
Reese Witherspoon → Rhys Withisspoon
5(31.2%)
Blue Ivy Carter → Pink Ivy Carter
1(6.2%)

Now for something more significant! Still a short-range shot, but at one of the most important people of the 20th century! It is difficult to rank these people, so let us pick at random from this page

Princess Diana
1(6.2%)
Richard Nixon
4(25.0%)
Pol Pot
2(12.5%)
Charlie Chaplin
1(6.2%)
Ernest Hemingway
8(50.0%)

Bonus science: predict what that would do!

Now for something dear to your heart — science! Looking at this list of scientists for targetting!

Albert Einstein
1(5.9%)
Marie Curie
0(0.0%)
Sigmund Freud
9(52.9%)
Max Planck
1(5.9%)
Niels Bohr
2(11.8%)
Ivan Pavlov
4(23.5%)

On to bigger targets! Let's try five runners-up from this list of the most important people of all time.

St. Thomas Aquinas
9(50.0%)
Archimedes
3(16.7%)
Charles Babbage
0(0.0%)
Benjamin Franklin
4(22.2%)
Abraham Lincoln
2(11.1%)

Bonus science: predict what that would do!

And finally — the grand prize! One of most important people of all time, according to the same list!

Muhammed
9(50.0%)
Isaac Newton
0(0.0%)
Jesus Christ
2(11.1%)
The Buddha
6(33.3%)
Confucius
1(5.6%)

Actually, there's no reason to stop there. If you fit the device with a diffraction grating and some unstable molecules, you can get an entire nation! Here are choices courtesy of this site

China, 100 A.D.
1(5.9%)
Rome, 100 A.D.
6(35.3%)
France, 1700 A.D.
4(23.5%)
England, 1815 A.D.
2(11.8%)
America, 1945 A.D.
4(23.5%)
