Why Are We Even Asking "What Is a Woman?"
Commentary on Matt Walsh's documentary
In all honesty, I’m ticked off this documentary was made.
It was very well done and very informational, but my problem is the denial of reality and the celebration of delusion that provides social standing for those who deny the Truth.
I’m ticked off at the pervasiveness of stupidity that has created an environment that inspires such a question.
I’m ticked off that people are pretending they are confused by this question.
Our society has embraced the mentally ill and the narcissist as some sort of celebrated hero while destroying anyone who denies “their truth.” I think that is the underlying problem. The disintegration of the Truth at the altar of individual truths. There is only one Truth and people used to agree on that even from different religious perspectives. As a Bible-studying Christian, I believe in the One Truth that comes directly from our Creator. God made us in His image: male and female He made us.
Again, I thought the film was very well done and along Mr. Walsh’s journey, I felt incredibly confused by the delusional people he interviewed. These are people in positions of power and influence. These are people guiding parents and young people who blindingly trust them because of their title. My guess is they were “C” students and now they are drunk on their own power to transform society.
Beware folks, keep in mind that all you need for a license to practice as a therapist is a degree and passing a test. Not all training is created equal. Screen the people with these titles. Just because they hold the title does not mean they are competent or effective.
I also felt tremendous embarrassment to be an American associated with these delusional ideas. I felt embarrassed for the “gender affirming” therapist in the documentary. I’m sorry, but that person enables mental illness, doing nothing to help children and families. How many of the children that “gender affirming” therapists refer for butchery have histories of trauma which leave them feeling detached from themselves and from their place in the world? How many “gender affirming” therapists have done a thorough evaluation for complex trauma on the people for whom they are recommending butchery? How many “gender affirming” therapists have invited their clients and their families to fully investigate themselves and what they are wanting to become by asking those who have done it?
I have to agree with Dr. Jordan Peterson here. If a therapist is only there to “support your truth” it’s like joining a schizophrenic in their hallucinations and delusions and saying it’s ok to give into them.
Don’t just listen to me or to one expert. Check out what Walt Heyer has to say. I’ve read his books and they are heartbreaking. His is not the only sex change surgery regret story. Read Abigail Shrier's book, read Kara Dansky’s book, read Dr. Debra Soh’s book. Ask yourself, why the demolition of womanhood now?
The butchering of children? The surgeon in the documentary who described the surgical procedures associated with “sex change” sounded like Dr. Frankenstein. (I wonder if I can create a human from a jigsaw puzzle of human remains?) My heart broke for the poor woman who “transitioned” into a man who is now a slave to Big Pharma, in pain all the time, and scarred forever. Scott is the hero of the documentary and Scott did not reap the benefits from sex change surgery. The only ones reaping the benefits are those getting paid to keep Scott alive. And when Scott cannot pay, Scott does not get medical care. Is this what you want for yourself? For your child?
Aside from the tribe in Africa whose people laughed hysterically at the idea of women wanting to become men and vice versa, the end of the film was phenomenal. I loved it. I’m not telling because it’s worth watching the whole film just to get to the end.
My heart breaks for the girls and women in sports. I was in sports in high school and I cannot imagine competing against men. We fought for Title IX, the opportunity for women’s sports as a separate category, and now they allow men in? What did we fight for? Participating in sports saved my life and kept me out of trouble as it does for millions of girls. What happens to an entire generation of young women demoralized from the invalidation of their hard work? All that training is useless against a man. Why even bother competing anymore?
How can feminists “march” for women’s rights when they cannot define what a woman is? I “marched” as a feminist in the early 2000s, and none of us were confused about what it meant to be a woman. Whatever happened to the feminist mantra, “I am woman, hear me roar!”?
Because I've never been a “girly-girl” I wonder if I were an adolescent now, would someone be telling me I’m really a guy? Horror does not even begin to describe what goes through my mind. I might not have been uncomfortable with my body then, but that’s adolescence. Nothing is comfortable during the teenage years. I was an idiot at that age, making bad choices left and right, but never did it cross my mind to chop off my body parts. Now they are adding “the gender question” into the adolescent quagmire? This former therapist puts that in the category of psychological child abuse.
All incredulity aside, the documentary was well done and alerts people to the pervasiveness of the cultural problem plaguing us. Whether you believe it is a distraction from real problems, a moneymaking scheme for Big Pharma, or a destruction of God’s creation, this phenomenon will serve as the destruction of our society eventually.
My message to young people is this — You are a beautiful creation. Fearfully and wonderfully made by your Creator who loves you more than your mind can fathom. You are wanted. You are loved. Do not buy into the deception and manipulation. Instead, seek the One who made you and hold on tight.
Watch the documentary. May it inspire conversation and the discovery of the Truth. My prayers are with you.
