What is a Woman?

By | October 10, 2022

[October 10, 2022]  Confusion over one’s gender has grown from a small part of “deviant” Western culture into a massive wave of fad, fashion, and art.  Everyone seems to be on board the transgender train hurdling down the tracks to an end that no one can rightfully envision but will undoubtedly result in a crash.  Not many folks have the courage or the skills to fight back against it.  So I ask, What is a Woman?

Remember only recently when U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn asked Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson this question?  Jackson could not solve the riddle because she was “not a biologist.”  I believe that my 8-year-old granddaughter can answer it and do so without quibbling or doubt.  Is Brown smarter than an 8-year-old?

Matt Walsh has delivered some insight into the question, “What is a Woman?” in his recent film of the same name.  Matt goes around the country and to Africa to ask this most basic of questions and puts people to the task.  He shows that being a biologist does not help those who are gender ideologues.  Perhaps he could get a straight answer from attendees at a “women’s march.”  Nope.  Or from distinguished academics, therapists, and medical surgeons who make money from the trans fad.  Nope.

His film on transgenderism is engaging, entertaining, gripping, and funny.  We are starting to see it in theaters, but it can be found at the Daily Wire (see link, note you must be registered to see the film).  For now, go to YouTube for the trailer (link here).

Surveys over the last several years have found an increasing number of young folks that now “identify” themselves as transgender.  Most of these surveys report a percentage of around 20 percent.  There is certainly some peer pressure at work, so the actual number is far less.  But, of course, you are not allowed to comment critically on it.

“If you call a dog’s tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have?  Four.  Calling it a leg does not make it a leg.” – Abraham Lincoln

The identity politics crowd is livid at Matt Walsh and anyone who dares question their new faddish ideology.  But the fact remains that those who identify as transgender are far more likely to express feelings of persistent sadness and hopelessness.  They are also more likely to commit suicide and harm themselves.

    GEN. Satterfield, you nearly had me spitting out my morning coffee thru my big nose. Reading this was great for my morning routine. Well done!!!!!!!

      Militant transgender advocates are imposing their agenda with uncompromising zeal on schoolchildren.

    Radical transgender ideology is destructive, harmful, and disconnected from reality.

  3. Bryan Z. Lee

    Trans ideology states that it is how a person feels that determines their ‘gender identity’ regardless of their birth sex or anatomy. For example, if a person with male genitalia ‘feels’ that he is a woman, then his gender identity is female. Feeling or the sense of inner gender identity is what determines the person’s real sex. But if this is indeed the case, if one’s feeling or inner sense of self determines who one really is, why should this constructivist approach to reality be applied only to sex and gender? Why should it not be applied also to height or race, for instance? Just asking for a friend.

    1. Emma Archambeau

      The problem may be stated thus: If subjective gender identities determine reality, what about other forms of self-professed identities? Do they also determine reality? If not, why not?

      Transgender ideology is not only antithetical to the biblical understanding of human sexuality. It is also at odds with the way in which it has been understood throughout the history of human civilisation.

        This is why Christians must remember that love for our neighbors, especially the most vulnerable ones, demands telling the truth.

    I joined Daily Wire now. I want to see the whole movie. Thank you Gen. Satterfield for bringing this movie to our attention. 😊

    Excellent question that any kid can answer in just a few words. Why can’t a Supreme Court justice answer it? They are ideologues in the extreme.

    1. Andrew Dooley

      Because we are ideologues and can only “see” what we are allowed to see. This shows me that we are not free with the will to make our own decisions and be responsible for them.

      1. Yusaf from Texas

        Trans activists have therefore turned the traditional understanding of the relationship between sex and gender on its head. It is no longer the case that sex determines gender. Now, it is gender that determines sex!

        Shows what ideologies can do to you. It puts blinders on you and does so with your willingness.

          Children — as young as 5 — are being encouraged to disregard their anatomy and choose their gender based on their feelings.

  6. Eye Cat

    Transgenderism is an ideology that promotes the view that a person’s gender identity has nothing with do with their biological sex or anatomy. As an ideology, transgenderism has been widely accepted in many public institutions in the West such as education, health care, social work, and even the police and prison services. Its political agenda is also being promoted through these institutions.

      This new dogma has led some people to say that babies are born without a sex and that doctors are assigning them sex at birth and that is wrong. My view is that sexual deviants have always been and always will be sexual deviants.

    Ouch! Hard hitting article, Gen. Satterfield. You are so right and i plan on joining daily wire just to see the full Matt Walsh movie.

    1. Pumpkin Spice

      Me too Audrey. Just because some “trans” wants something done their way, doesn’t mean women have to give up their rights.

      1. Janna Faulkner

        PS, that’s the other side of the equation, women are being denied rights, pushed out of jobs, crushed in sports, told that transwomen are better than women, that we women are not to be “deniers” of rights of others when nothing could be further from the truth. “What is a woman?” Best question of the year.

      2. Lynn Pitts

        Good point Pumpkin Spice,,,, real women need to stand up and not be intimidated. Funny how we used to blame men for intimidating us when all along it was the liberal, progressives who were doing it. Now they have a new “fad” called transgenderism and they are in love all over again.
