Less than a week after its release, Matt Walsh’s documentary "What Is a Woman?" has streamed to the top of the charts, becoming the most-watched at-home movie in the month of June. The film that challenges members of the transgender revolution to answer one simple question has resonated with audiences.
Walsh joined “Fearless with Jason Whitlock” to discuss the film’s success and answer Jason’s one critique of the project: Where is Jesus?
Whitlock says his big takeaway from “What Is a Woman?” is that truth is the enemy of the transgender movement. He asked Walsh how a film based on the search for objective truth could leave God out of that discussion.
“First thing I would say is that if you're getting to the truth, then you're not leaving God out. There's no way to talk about truth ... to speak truth — defend truth — while taking God out of it. If you're taking God out of it, you're taking the truth out of it, right? So they kind of go hand in hand”.
Walsh contends that if God had been presented as the factor driving the search for answers to his question, the entirety of the film would have been dismissed and disregarded by the left.
“My wife could have, she could have quoted Genesis …” Walsh says. “And the reason we didn't do that is because we didn't think ... [that] to accomplish what you want to accomplish that it was necessary, and what I didn't want was to give the left an escape hatch at the very end.”
Despite being the most-watched at-home documentary and having achieved a 97% fresh score from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, not one single film critic has offered a review of the documentary. Meanwhile, viewers have submitted over 2,500 reviews for "What Is a Woman?"
“I think that if at the very end we had ended on a sermon, [or] we had ended with a Bible quote, or if instead of going to my wife, I had gone to a clergyman for the answer and he had told me something spiritual,” Walsh explained. “I think that then we’d be getting all kinds of reviews from mainstream critics so that they could glom onto that point and say that, ‘All you see this, it's all just Bible-thumping, and in order to be a critic of this gender ideology, you have to be a Christian.’”
Whitlock said that sort of controversy and response would’ve been great publicity for the documentary.
