Fearless Blogger Matt Walsh Says ‘Calling Bruce Jenner a Woman is an Insult to Women’
Blogger Matt Walsh — someone I thoroughly enjoy reading and following — is pretty much fearless when it comes to speaking his mind openly on controversial topics, so it isn’t surprising to see that he’s weighed in on the recent “unveiling” of Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner.
In Walsh’s piece he expresses some genuine concerns for what Jenner is going through mentally, noting that a lot of “transgenders” who transition often have serious regrets, and he hopes the former athlete doesn’t harm himself like so many others who undergo this transformation.
The infamous blogger then goes on to explain why calling Jenner a “woman is an insult to women.”
Here are a few selections from his post.
Parents, be aware: soon the magazine rack in the checkout line at the supermarket will feature this profoundly disturbing image of Bruce Jenner. The picture is plastered right on the cover of the next Vanity Fair issue, and it shows Bruce dolled up in makeup and hair extensions, posing in a corset, with parts of his face, forehead, and throat shaved off for cosmetic reasons, and his chest enhanced by hormone pills, Photoshop, and silicone. The idea is to make the 65-year-old grandfather look like a college girl, but the effect is that he looks like a distorted version of neither.
For my part, I agree that a man can never lay claim to womanhood. I also agree that there is such a thing as a female brain and a female soul — and by extension female emotions and female personalities and female characteristics — but the trouble is that female brains and souls are always contained securely in female bodies. A man will never be born with a sloth’s heart or a rhino’s liver or a birch tree’s root system, just as he will never be born with a woman’s brain.
There is more to being a woman than “feminized” facial features and frilly underwear. Bruce Jenner in drag is not beautiful. Women are beautiful because they are women. Womanhood is itself beautiful. Women bring something distinct and special to the world. They fill a void and play a role that no man can.
A woman is a woman not merely because of whatever cosmetic feature a man might vaguely emulate. A woman is a woman because of her biology, which Bruce does not share and never will. A woman is a woman because of her capacity to create life and harbor it in her body until birth, which Bruce cannot do. A woman is a woman because of her soul, her mind, her perspective, her experiences, and her unique way of thinking, of loving, and of being — all things Bruce can only mimic.
A woman is a woman. She has earned that title. She pays for that title. She suffers with that title and gives life with that title and lives from conception until death and beyond with that title. She is that title. She should not be told that it’s such a flimsy thing that a man with enough money can buy his way into it. It’s demeaning and reductive, and as a father and a husband and a son and a brother, I take exception to it. I can only imagine how women might feel if they were only allowed to be open about it.
You don’t get to have a “new” self or another self or a different self or a Self 2.0. Your self is your self. It’s your being. It’s your essential personhood; your particular and unrepeated character. Your self is your body, mind, and soul. It is physically, metaphysically, spiritually, philosophically, scientifically, rationally and logically impossible for a self to change into a new self. A self can only be what it is.
Last question for the people — particularly straight men — who claim there is no real distinction between a “transgender” woman and a real woman: Would you marry a woman who used to be a man? Would you look at this “former” man and think, “I want to make him my wife?”
Answer: No. You wouldn’t. You won’t. And you know it. Instinctively, when it comes down to it, where your life and love are concerned, you recognize the difference between a biological woman in all her glory, and a castrated man in all his derangement. I’m spending thousands of words convincing you of something you know. And I know you know it. And everyone knows that everyone knows it.
Walsh finished up by saying, ” Bruce Jenner is not a woman in any sense or to any extent. And you already knew that.”
Now, take a deep breath, pause your iTunes or Spotify playlist, and listen very closely.
Do you hear that faint sound growing louder?
That’s the nutty liberals having an absolute meltdown over this, as they furiously type out their death threats and email them to Matt Walsh.
These are some very strong words, but the truth is seldom ever soft and cuddly. Still, that doesn’t mean we don’t need to hear it.
Let’s hope those that disagree manage to salvage a little human decency and disagree without wishing the man dead.
