What Is a Woman? movie review - Aussieboyreviews


Absolutely not, but it’s just as terrifying and distressing as informative. Is the world really becoming this woke? To the point where it’s a criminal offence to misgender someone and there are ridiculous pronouns? Wow…


Matt Walsh travels to different parts of the world questioning the gender ideology movement and trying to figure out the answer to a controversial question nobody seems to know the answer to; what is a woman?

Aussie boy's thoughts

Matt Walsh isn’t being transphobic or hateful in this powerful documentary. He’s rather exposing how obsessed American society and the world is becoming with gender and identity politics. In What Is a Woman?, he goes on to travel to different parts of the word and interviews people participating in the Women’s March, random folks and psychological professionals about this subject matter, both with agreeing and disagreeing opinions, followed by the question they can’t seem to specifically answer; what is a woman?

This documentary film strives to point out the truth and the reality, in which it understands that the reality is the fact that men can’t become women, women can’t become men, there are only two genders and the main question (or the title) is specifically easy to answer. The people interviewed in this film, interestingly the professionals who take the time to sit down and talk, become easily uncomfortable by Walsh’s question and the thought of ‘the truth’. Most documentaries are organised and discuss the truth very maturely, but in this one, everybody shows clear emotion and frustration in their talking.

Quite honestly, this film starts off on a fairly light pace and takes the opportunities to be funny at several times throughout, but this is until it takes a maddening descent into the truth and becomes very serious, very deep, in a way terrifying, and completely unflinching of the truth, which is where you need to come into this film with an open mind. It shows how woke the world has become quite recently and now even the truth can get you in serious trouble. What Is a Woman is very informative, all while never transphobic, closed-minded and confronting.
