The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh travels to the plains of Africa and the ivory towers of academia to ask a four-word question that is transforming the transgender debate.
A few years ago, author and podcaster Matt Walsh began asking a simple question that he believed could ultimately undermine the entire transgender movement — namely, “What is a Woman?”
Walsh has not stopped asking that question since and is yet to find a straight answer from those steering the gender conversation. He even appeared on the popular daytime TV show Dr Phil earlier this year to discuss the definition of the word ‘woman’ with trans activists.
On Wednesday, The Daily Wire premiered Walsh’s brand new documentary dedicated to this topic, aptly named ‘What is a Woman?’
So popular was the premiere that Daily Wire Co-CEO Jeremy Boering was forced to make a public apology after so many streaming requests flooded their site that some viewers were prevented from seeing the show.
It has since been revealed that the company was also hit with a cyber attack on Wednesday night. “We have confirmed that @realDailyWire experienced a significant and sustained DDoS attack tonight meant to disrupt the World Premiere of #WhatIsAWoman,” Boering tweeted.
#WhatIsAWoman has been trending on Twitter in the days since, along with humorous — and some heartbreaking — highlights from the documentary that have seen millions of views.
Gender, According to People of Colour
In an especially viral clip, Walsh has an extended interchange with the elder of a Masai tribe in an African village. He puts to the elder questions that are now taken for granted in the halls of Western academia and on university campuses, including, “Can a man become a woman?” and “What if a man decides his gender identity is a woman?”
When Walsh asks, “What [about] a woman with a penis?” the crowd of Masai tribesmen gathered around can be seen laughing and shaking their heads in disbelief.
Back on home soil, Walsh speaks with pediatric professor Dr. Michelle Forcier who claims that prepubescent kids are ready for trans hormone therapy “whenever they ask for it”.
She also concedes that the same drugs used to chemically castrate pedophiles are those being prescribed to pre-teens to “pause” puberty.
Perhaps most fascinating is the tangled logic Forcier is forced to use in her denial of the sky-is-blue reality of gender.
An Inconvenient Truth
A fascinating feature of ‘What is a Woman?’ is the number of interviewees who threaten to walk out of their conversations with Walsh, whose questioning style remains calm, honest and objective.
As The Babylon Bee’s CEO Seth Dillon has observed, “With simple, dispassionate questions, Matt Walsh reveals that mere curiosity about the truth is enough to offend people who’ve built their careers and lifestyles on the back of its suppression.”
In one particularly awkward exchange, a college professor suggested that the notion of truth itself was transphobic, and then threatened to walk out of the interview.
On asking Democrat Congressman for California Mark Takano why women should have to share their locker rooms with men, Takano did in fact walk out — apparently on the instruction of a staffer, and without so much as an explanation.
On Transgender Regret and Surgery for Children
Walsh also interviews Scott Newgent, who was in 2021 permanently banned from Twitter for speaking out against the medical and surgical “transition” of children. Newgent’s own story of transgender regret is moving.
The strength of ‘What is a Woman?’ is its ability to lay bear the intellectual bankruptcy of transgender ideology while remaining both witty and heartfelt.
The majority of Westerners have chosen to stick with common sense on the trans issue and will be grateful to see their views fairly represented in a time when disparaging sanity has become a sport in highbrow culture.
In the words of Andrew T. Walker, a professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Walsh’s new show is “outstanding” — and “pastors/churches should consider organising screenings”.
