What is a Woman?
The title of conservative podcaster, Matt Walsh’s controversial documentary, just released last week, June 1.
A film that is meeting huge criticism among the LGBTQ+ community, as Walsh sets out across the world — from the US, to Canada, to Africa — to talk to experts, trying to find someone to be able to define the question, what is a woman.
This isn’t the first time that question has been in the news…as famously in the second day of Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings, when point-blank asked to provide a definition for the word, woman, Jackson could not define the word woman, saying…”not in this context,” and after an uncomfortably awkward fumbling silence, uttered that she’s “not a biologist.”
Seen as a “gotcha” question by woke left extremists pushing transgender agendas among adults — and children, complete with puberty blockers, gender affirming care, and drag queen exposure for kids — this question is really the fundamental question that, as a floundering society, we must be able to define.
And yet — every single “woke” expert — from medical professionals, to college professors, to therapists, politicians, surgeons, transgender people who have undergone surgery — not a single one could answer the question. The closest they got was, “a person who identifies as a woman…” which is a non-answer.
The only correct answer to the question, came from an indigenous tribe in Africa — who blatantly laughed in Walsh’s face at the notion of a woman with a penis. They had it right. A man is a man, and a woman is a woman.
The film touched on more than just that though — it spotlighted the unfairness of transgender female athletes (biological men) competing in female sports. It illuminated the dangers of issuing puberty blockers/hormone pills to children, and how it’s child abuse to issue these drugs — which are also used to chemically castrate pedophiles — to children. It touched on the dangers women face with biological men being able to use women’s bathrooms — especially in schools, and spotlighted the Loudoun County school district lawsuit from last year where a transgender youth raped two young women in the high school girls’ bathroom.
The film was all over the map.
However there was something glaringly missing from this documentary. Something that, in my humble opinion is linchpin of this entire issue: God.
Walsh mentioned God absolutely zero times.
The only mention of God was by the tribe in Africa.
Walsh asks: Can a man become a woman?
Walsh: What about a transgender?
“No. If you want to become a lady but you are a man, there is something wrong in your family. Something wrong in you.”
Walsh: So you don’t spend a lot of time thinking about gender?”
“No — because that is God’s plan. I’m shocked by what you’re telling me.
To which, Walsh just glosses over, and moves on.
The documentary — it was good. Don’t get me wrong, but the argument without God — it just seemed hollow. Superficial.
Because if you don’t include God in the argument, then really…why should you care if a person wants to disregard their biological makeup and live life as a different — or their own made up — gender?
And I get why Walsh left it out. Though a devout Catholic, Walsh didn’t want to give the left the ability to “blame” this video on “a religious extremist’s viewpoint.” He didn’t want to give them a scapegoat to “discredit” the arguments presented in the film. Walsh himself has said this on his podcast, The Matt Walsh Show.
But frankly, the argument is painfully incomplete without it.
Because the whole reason why transgenderism is wrong, is because it denies the work of God. Genesis 1:26-17 states that we are all created in the image and likeness of God, male or female.
To reject and deny one’s biological identity as a creation of God, is to reject and deny God, Himself. It places them higher than God. It’s saying — I know better than God. It’s my will, not His will that is correct. God made a mistake.
It’s the idolatry of self. And, in my unpopular opinion, I fully believe that — just as the enemy uses eating disorders to control young women — so too is the enemy using this movement of “gender fluidity” and transgenderism to separate people from God.
Dr. Marci Bowers even said so. Bowers, a woke surgeon who specializes in transgender transition surgeries, and is a transgender woman himself, said — in referring to the “bottom surgery” he performs —
Bowers: “We’re altering the physical characteristics of the individual to fit better with a gender identity that is female.”
Walsh: This is all constructed from the penis?
Bowers: Yes that’s right. The surgeries are quite refined in the sense that they really – not only do they look like female anatomy, but they also function that way – for the most part. I mean certainly it’s a bit of a Faustian Bargain. You know, it’s not perfect.
And, what, might you ask, is the definition of a Faustian Bargain?
Trading one’s soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge or power.
I think that’s the mic drop I’ll end on tonight.
And what was the answer that Walsh finally landed on to his titular question? An adult human female.
I pray for all of those struggling with gender dysphoria, that they may come to see and appreciate the beautiful gift that they, themselves are, as a creation of God — who is loving, powerful, and doesn’t make mistakes.
