After a full year of suppression and semi-obscurity, Matt Walsh’s iconic documentary, “What is a Woman,” has gone viral – on steroids. The latest figures show it with nearly 200 million views. We all have been linked to so many “must see” videos that we can tend to overlook them, so I was not going to be stampeded when my wife said that she had seen the first 20 minutes, and that I should see it with her, too.

I sighed, and it turned out justifiably so, because I had a feeling that this was going to be difficult, but compelling, to watch. I don’t need to be convinced that the “trans” movement is off-the-rails in mental madness. I had to watch it in increments because the arrogance, psychobabble and circular, incestuous logic of the “professionals” that receive all the gushing tributes from the White House to the mainstream media fully manifest itself in this documentary.

And Walsh was a genius in his handling of all this. He was a comfy as an iguana on a hot rock, maintaining professional composure even while his mad subjects are seen squirming at various points, with body language and chip-on-the-shoulder sensitivity, threatening to terminate the interview, and in the case of an extremist congressman from California, actually doing so.

I have concluded that these people need pity, not combat. Their self-delusions are so painfully obvious that it makes your head swim. Long have I told my students that the human mind – and soul – is powerful. It can conceive of artistic masterpieces, gigantic ships, great cathedrals and skyscrapers, weave complex tapestries, motivate through the written and spoken word.

But it is a two-edged sword: it can create an empire based on pornography, convince millions that large segments of humanity are not worthy to live, designs H-bombs and ICBMs, mastermind global conspiracies of vast and inhuman destruction, and make lies sound like truth. Fortunately, our Creator gave us an immortal soul, and despite being on the lowest rung of spiritual beings with a limited intellect, mankind can – and because he is redeemed – will be able, sooner or later, to cut through the fog of lies.

The problem has always been, however, how much damage can be done before all this is stopped? I am writing this from Italy right now, and I can say that the aftermath of the Second World War still permeates everything, and throughout Europe. Whether it came from Nazis or Communists, the destruction of millions of innocent lives, beautiful cities, great works of art and a Christian culture was its outcome. Followed by decades of prosperity and security, it has bred a complacent attitude that focuses on the material and temporal, rather than the spiritual and eternal.

But there is always hope. How many fascists, nazis and communists have repented, allowed themselves a self-examination and “come clean” with interviews and books? Many. Madness is temporary, and because of this, is different from insanity. One thinks of Albert Speer, who wrote “Inside the Third Reich,” or Herbert Kappler, the SS commander of occupied Rome, Bernard Nathanson in “Aborting America,” or the many co-authors of “The Black Book of Communism.” These men repented, and wanted to make amends, however infinitesimal their efforts might prove to be.

And so, this is how we must view today’s mad scientists, whether they be part of the covid vax hoax, the trans movement, or whatever else a satanic mind has in store for us. These people are not insane, but merely mad. We can all fall into this trap. We can be “madly in love,” but it doesn’t last long, and can lead to a lasting marriage; we go mad at a sporting event, or in a mob. Later, we can reflect on our actions, and repent.

Watch Matt Walsh’s 1+ hour video. It is hopeful. It has interviews with those who have self-imposed great suffering, and came out of madness, as well as medical professionals who have resisted – and at cost – the engines of suppression. It will provide us all with the spine to resist, and lead the enemies of humanity back into a world of hope, rather than their self-created delusions of an impossible future, and their self-righteous hate of anyone who works against them.

    Great article, Mr. Bird! Thank you.
    This is an excellent documentary on the dark disillusion of these poor confused people. We must stop ignoring the real agonizing emotional and psychological pain of people who think they are Trans. Stop feeding the lies that they can be that which they cannot be, no matter how many drugs or surgeries they have. Their pain is real, so how about we focus on helping them heal from the disorder instead of putting a “G-string suture” on the huge chasm of their brokenness.

    Science says that we need at least 4 basic elements to survive.
    1. Water
    2. Air
    3. Food
    4. Light
    And look what the bible tells us about God’s Son.
    1. I am the Living Water
    2. I am the Breath of Life
    3. I am the Bread of Life
    4. I am the Light of the World
    Science was right, we need God’s Son to live.

      *Note: to get around the “filter,” I had to replace God’s Son’s name with “God’s Son” to be able to post this. Sad. Let God Almighty’s Kingdom come and his will be done here on earth as it is in Heaven.

      Love this, your so right, awesome analogy

    Please watch the video. What is a women

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      I watched it. What do you think about it? Some of the first things that pop into my mind when I think of the question is that a woman was created from man to be a companion and a helper to man. As his companion and mate, they create children together as God commanded. It was very shocking to see/hear the responses in the movie to the question, “What is a woman?” I feel that technology has pulled us so far away from God’s intention for our daily interaction with others and the devil’s agenda of destroying families and loving relationships has been detrimental to our well-being as humans made in God’s image.

    I just watched this documentary “What is a woman.” It was very educational.

    I took what I witnessed in this documentary in prayer before the Most High God and also asked the question “What is a Woman?”. The Lord Most High reminded me of this scripture, “”For I knew you before I formed you in the womb”.

    A woman will have a womb. Women (who are not barren) are individuals with wombs to bring souls into this world so that each soul may make a choice to either worship and serve the Lord or reject the precepts of the Most High God. An individuals choices are revealed by their words and deeds while living their life path here in this world that the Most High God created.

    Currently, the Time of Revealing is in Motion and everyone is Revealing who they really believe of themselves. It is what it is.

    Blessed is the Name of the Most High God who is Holy, Holy, Holy.

    Transgenderism, whether committed steps have been taken or not, is a pathological state characterized by markedly elevated rates of suicidal ideation and high risk for suicide. Instead of more hormones and surgery, these patients need professional psychiatric help.
