What is a Woman? – A Review of Matt Walsh’s Film

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?
“No.”
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.

  1. It is very disturbing to me that people can be so unhappy with their gender. Why? I am 61 and have always liked being a man! The evil one is using every tool at its disposal to warp and twist the minds of as many people as possible and pervert our beautiful children. Surgically altering your body is a slap in the face to our Lord. Trading your soul for knowledge and power sounds like something evil politicians and other will do, pure evil. Sorry, this stuff makes me angry…

    1. I agree! I love being a woman! Men love trying to change themselves, who wouldn’t. I love changing my hair, my makeup. Having a cycle sucks! Giving birth hurts. Will men want that? Or is it just the fascination of the change? God created you as you! Enjoy yourself! I pleases GOD 👐🏿 who, last time I checked, has the final say. Peace

      1. Amen to that! God created us to be uniquely us! And i so agree – He has the final say! go glad you stopped by! thanks for sharing your thoughts! Hugs and love xox

      2. It’s on Daily Wire, but I actually found it on YouTube! I just searched for it!

      3. Great comment, thank you so much! He always has and always will have the last word! He is God.

    2. Thanks John – I agree. This is totally a ploy by the enemy. And I pray for all the young people right now. Discovering who you are and coming into your own is part of puberty — it’s sad that we’re handing out puberty blockers like candy to children. Makes me very scared. very scared. A slap in the face to the Lord indeed. Thanks so much for sharing your heart on this. i’m right there with ya! Hugs and love xox

  2. Hi C! You’re right. To separate God from the discussion removes any standard. That’s the reason this whole mess has gotten as far as it has, they’ve removed the standard. Now they can make any claim they want.
    But God still sets the standard, and they can’t fight the truth. The sad part is that the medical profession is backing them instead of sticking to the truth and helping them. Rather than diagnose their mental illness as gender dysphoria, they just pat them on the head and tell them they’re fine. If that’s all it takes to practice medicine now, I guess I could identify as a doctor. Definitely need to pray for the people truly dealing with this, and pray God helps the rest of us show real compassion by sharing His truth with them.
    Have a great weekend! 🤗🙏💛

    1. Hi Kenneth, thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. sadly, you hit the nail on the head: they removed the standard. But Amen! He still is in control, sets the standard, and is the Truth! praying for them with you. Hugs and love xox

  3. Glad you are talking about this. I find myself at a loss to talk about this yet I want to hear, talk, be kind and understanding but it often doesn’t feel right and I found your sentence to say it well. Putting their will above Gods will. Very well said. There’s more to it yes. I often wonder if people feel broken in their gender so they try a different gender hoping healing will come. And like you’ve said God brings the healing. Thank you for always jumping in the deep end of the pool when it comes to rough topics. Debbie

    1. Hi Debbie, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this – yes, that is the biggest issue I take with this matter: putting their will above God’s Praying hard for everyone involved in this heartbreaking reality. Hugs and love xox

  4. “Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.”
    Who said that?

    You seem to know what God has to say more than anyone else. How do you do it? Does God speak only to you? The bible says no one knows the mind of God. So you must be very special.

    How is it that an all-knowing God makes so many mistakes? Mistakes with people. Are there mistakes made with animals? Do ants have identity problems? Do giraffes lack a moral compass? Please let us know what God has to say about that.

    When you speak of the “idolatry of self” I fear you are speaking of yourself. To yap so much with so little knowledge boggles the mind.

    No doubt you’ll soldier on with belief in yourself and battle with what you call the “enemy,” whatever that is.

    It’s a good that daddy is rich and can indulge his little girl so she doesn’t have to face reality other than her Godly life. Onward Christian Soldier and Amen.

  5. ” 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. ”

    This paragraph to me says that Christians need to stop being afraid of what the left is going to say about the truth, and continue to speak the truth, even to people like the one on here who seems to know what everyone thinks and at the same time thinks themselves very special.

    If those people would spend as much time reading the Bible as they do so-called “great literature” they would all be less ignorant about spiritual matters – which in their present state they are completely unable to understand.

    “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”

    Who said that?

    Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. Romans 1:28

    And so, we must do as Paul instructed Timothy: “…turn away from godless chatter… and what is falsely called knowledge.”

    1. That is very true, Myron: we must speak the truth, and not be afraid to do so! thanks for sharing this powerful perspective. Turn away from godless chatter – amen! Hugs and love xox

  6. Well there are things along the way that can be counted your last paragraph says it all:

    “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.”

    1. Amen – we must pray fervently. There is power in prayer. thank you for stopping by! Hugs and love xox

  7. Well said. Focusing on the image of God bearing we have as men and women is the heart of what it means to be human as well as the type of person we are. Altering with God’s created order leads to bad things. The ancients would have depicted “bad things” as chaos or distruction. Thank you for your powerful message!

    1. Thank you so much Tim for sharing your thoughts on this and for your support. You’re right about that. altering with God’s created order is never the way to go. Glad you stopped by! Hugs and love xox

    1. thank you Laura, what a kind thing to say. I appreciate your support and for the encouragement! hope you have a beautiful weekend! Hugs and love xox

  8. Wonderful message there. God knew what His creation would look like from the beginning. And everything is as He created it; trees the same shape and color. Moon, sun, and stars also have the same appearance God gave them. I mean everything, His creation had no error and needed no correction. [Gen 1:27 God created man in His image, in the Divine image He created them; male and female He created them] and it pleased Him very much. The woman is a man with womb [purposely meant to incubate the man’s seed and give forth to young one], while men lack the womb [because they are designed as seed donors]. God made them both fertile with the ability to reproduce and multiply. There is nowhere we see that a man and woman can exchange gender, LOL. [Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this]. It’s God’s will women to remain being women, and men also appreciate being men, in everything. It makes God happy when we accept ourselves.

    1. Thank you Qui for sharing your thoughts on this. You speak so much truth — God does not make mistakes. And He created us in His image, male and female. i appreciate you stopping by! Hugs and love xox

  9. PRO: fessional
    PRO: paganda
    I’m not drawing any corollaries between those PROs.
    But I will question the glass houses from which this post was written *and* read.
    You know me…I just loathe hypocrites….

    1. Hi Galby, I’m not sure what you’re referring to here — if you are calling me a hypocrite, I would just like to remind you that I’ve never once said that I don’t have faults of my own, or that I don’t have a laundry list of sins 5 miles long. I mean, heck — this entire blog is just an air out of my dirty laundry and how egregious my past was: my struggles, my sins, my failures….so to call me a hypocrite? i guess I am just missing the connections here. If you can expound upon your feeling, I would be happy to listen. Hugs and love xox

  10. It is so disturbing that some people are still struggling to find their identity. Trying to become someone else. Natural laws cannot be broken. Anyone who breaks natural law shall die. Just as a fish must live inside water. It is a natural law. If a fish lives outside the water, it dies. It is a shame that some educated fools sitting in the legislature enacted these disturbing acts into law. What a shame

    1. I agree, Chris. I pray for those in the decision making seats, and for those struggling with identity issues. may they find their identity in God! Hugs and love xox

  11. “What is a woman?” My answer Caralyn is a strange creature indeed especially being married to one for over 30yrs.😂😂😂

    1. hahha kenneth you are too funny! women are definitely a mystery unto ourselves!! in fact, I’m still trying to figure it out myself, and I AM a woman!! haha jk jk 🙂 thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox

      1. oh no!! Kenneth! i’m so sorry about that!!! i hope it’s a speedy recovery! praying for you!!! Hugs and love xox

      2. Thanks Caralyn but it seems to be a mild doze. My wife has just got her 1st of two negatives today. She was worse than me. I think it’s a combination of my immune system plus covid jabs that’s helped fight it!

      3. Oh that’s good — I’m glad you two are on the up and up!! i’ll continue praying!! Hugs and love xox

    1. thank s so much H! i appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to read! Hugs and love xox

  12. Although I do agree that the fact that God created us each as a male or female is the basic foundation, and it is how I explain gender to my three year old, I do see where he is coming from on not mentioning God in these interviews or the documentary as a whole. The people he interviews are already defensive, and if he brings God into the conversation it would be an easy way out for them that isn’t their denial of natural gender being true. They could dismiss the conversation by stating it’s religion based. I think he had to go by basic biological facts. It was eye opening and scary to see how far this stuff is going medically. We have so much to guard the next generation against…and we can’t guard them by keeping them from it. We have to teach them truth and tell them there are lies out there that go against it. Harmful lies that can truly destroy their lives if they get sucked into it. Appreciate your insight on the documentary ❤️

    1. Thank you Ellen for sharing your thoughts on this. I agree – keeping it purely “scientific” and based on “biology” and not “faith” gives the left less of an argument to buck against. Thanks for sharing your heart, I appreciate you stopping by! Hugs and love xox

  13. Well said, Carolyn! I agree with you that it all leads back to God and His design and purpose for creation. I think it is one of the enemy’s schemes to get people to believe the lie that they weren’t created “right” or they wouldn’t be feeling that they needed to alter their body to feel better. It’s so sad seeing people believe this lie about their identity. I pray God penetrates those lies and brings light and healing to them.

    1. thank you so much Sabrina! amen – it all leads back to God! His design and will and creation is perfect!! I will join you in that important prayer! Hugs and love xox

  14. The “Faustian bargain” reference strikes a chord with me. There are so many people who feel -whether from life circumstances or biological influences, that they ‘must’ change from male, female, or make a new definition for self-acceptance. And all we really crave -love and acceptance- is present when we accept God as our Lord and Savior.

    1. It really struck a chord with me. so wild that this person — who I doubt even totally comprehended the actual biblical significance of such a “throw away” phrase — it was wild. Amen — our deepest desires can only be found in Him! Hugs and love xox

  15. The devil’s desire: to be like the Most High (Isaiah 14:14) and it was his temptation to Eve and Adam in the Garden: “Your will be like God.” (Genesis 3:5) But whenever humans begin to behave like gods, they become demonic; devils like Belshazzar, Genghis Khan, Hitler or Stalin. Revelation 22:11
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.

    1. Hi CA – thanks for sharing your heart on this. You’re right – that is all the enemy desires, however, try as he might, he will never be God! Hugs and love xox

  16. “Just as they didn’t think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done…” – Romans 1:28

    1. Thanks Rollie for sharing this powerful verse! amen to that! God’s word never fails! Hugs and love xox

    1. Thanks Jo – what a kind thing to say. i give it all to the Holy Spirit! i literally ask Him to write my posts for me!!! haha I sit down and I say, “Come Holy Spirit, teach me how to write!” hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! Hugs and love xox

  17. The documentary was heart-breaking (for me) to watch. To realize the generation who will suffer the most at the hands of this evil are my grandchildren’s. God Bless Scott (Kelly) Newgent for creating TREvoices. I pray their efforts are rewarded and that children (especially) are spared the trauma these experiments are producing. Hugs to you Caralyn, for once again being brave enough to discuss a controversial topic.

    1. Hi Dawn! I agree – it was truly heartbreaking to see what the “experts” were saying, and how totally debased they were when it comes to the truth. It made me so sad to think about the souls that were truly seeking help and truth, and THEY are who they would be guided to as their helper. makes me so sad, and I pray fervently for those astray in the field, and for those seeking help. I will have to look up TREvoices – seems like a truly powerful ministry. Thanks for always being such a positive encouragement, and great friend! big big hugs xoxo

  18. Good article. I saw the movie, and yes, the Tribe is the one who spoke the truth with God. A woman is a female designed by God. It’s pure child abuse, and what the one nurse said about how they don’t even know the long-term effects of puberty blockers—praying for the protection of our children.

    1. Thank you Deborah! I so agree – it is child abuse to give irreversable puberty blockers to children who don’t have the mental capacity to understand the gravity of such a decision. it absolutely ludicrous and it makes me so SO angry!!! you’re right – everyone on them right now is a guinea pig — for lack of a better term. — because at the end of the day, we just. don’t. know. what’s going to be the long term effect. joining you in that important important prayer! Hugs and love xox

  19. This remains a none-question it is a position statement.

    The fundamental answer is biological, but the individual asking the question wants an answer to a different question.

    How brave are you? Will you stand up for your belief or cave in because someone else gets hurt by your words. Whatever a person identifies as in gender terms, we have to accept if we won’t speak up then we will be trodden down and our opinions and values are undermined by ourselves.

    So those who make the stand and define a woman as god create eve to be the biological mother of all humans I applaud the direct response to the rest of the Christians out there who can’t then some soul searching is required. God defines the terms not us.

    Interesting post as ever thank you

    1. You’re so right about that — bravery is absoulutely the ultimate test in today’s world. Are we going to have the bravery to stand up for the truth, or are we going to let extreme radical redefine person as we have always know — and as God designed it perfectly. big prayers going up! Hugs and love xox

  20. I am so glad you write; your tackling of controversial issues with abandon mixed with love continues to refresh me. I know you’ll get backlash, of course, even hatred. But I applaud you! Thank you!

    1. thank you Ivan, i truly appreciate your support. you’re right – we’ve got to stand for the truth in love! Hugs and love xox

  21. A thoughtful, loving post. God is using you in a wonderful way. I second your prayer for those who are suffering insecurities in life. May they know the God and Rock who loves them just the way they are–and died for them to make them literally children of God, adopted into His arms forever.

    1. thank you so much Wallie. i appreciate your support and encouraging words. joining you in that important prayer! Hugs and love xox

  22. Science and Technology are the ‘new’ Gods today….allowing Man to ‘play’ God….allowing Man to be ‘Creators’ without considering ‘Natural’ Law….this is the sin of pride that we are living in today….

    1. You’re right about that, Jeanne. it is ABSOLUTELY the sin of pride. in so many ways. thanks for stopping by. Hugs and love xox

  23. Thank you, Caralyn, for a kind and compassionate review. For some this can be a very complicated and touchy subject. A sensitive response is required.
    May our LORD be with you.

    Jay

    1. Thank you Jay, I appreciate you sharing your thoughts on this. you’re right – sensitive indeed. Hugs and love xox

  24. I haven’t seen the MW documentary. I have an opinion on the subject matter, obviously and I think MW does a great job stiring conversations. However, what you shared was helpful. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Jason, I appreciate you sharing your thoughts on this. You’re right – MW does very interesting think pieces. Hugs and love xox

  25. You raise a really interesting point. Of course God is the creator of male and female. But there is a growing number of people who cannot accept this premise. So I understand Walsh’s dilemma: Do you make the God connection and give the young a handy excuse to write off the whole enterprise as based on some “silly superstition” or do you stick to a premise that is generally accepted among the religion skeptics and make them defend their beliefs based on that limited premise?

    I kind of see his point – we are never going to convince someone about God if we cannot even convince that person about scientifically-verifiable laws of nature. But I really appreciate you taking his argument and adding this critical link which completes the picture. Thank you for standing up and taking the arrows on this controversy (that should not be controversial at all).
