What is a woman?

Matt Walsh’s documentary “What is a Woman” was controversial and thought-provoking. It’s not a question anyone thought to ask until about 10 years ago, let alone 20 or 30.

Walsh did not have to try very hard to make many of his interview subjects look ridiculous. He simply asked some basic questions and let them talk. They did the work themselves. I was reminded of the saying “Better to stay silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove it”. (The irony of my writing this Substack isn’t lost on me, by the way…).

The answer they gave to this simple question was circular. What is a woman? Anyone claiming to be a woman is a woman. Circular reasoning is not a form of logic, it’s a logical fallacy.
