New York Magazine sort of gives away its feeling on The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh and his film, “What Is a Woman?” by declaring it “dangerous” and anti-trans right in the tweet. We’re not yet sure what’s dangerous about asking what a woman is — we currently have a sitting Supreme Court justice who can’t define what a woman is because she’s not a biologist. But we’ve certainly heard plenty about women’s rights since the Dobbs ruling overturned Roe v. Wade. Did everyone get anti-trans overnight, or is there really a thing called a woman?

Malcolm Harris writes in Intelligencer about the “just asking questions” anti-trans campaign.

By disguising a religious precept as a reasonable question, Walsh and his team have set out to win new friends and encourage existing allies at the same time. It’s an effective strategy, and the majority of us who understand the factual existence of trans people can’t afford to ignore them.

It’s clear from what we might charitably call his writings that Walsh is a Christian fundamentalist who is personally and professionally dedicated to making sure God’s law is law. And yet, in his biggest, most prominent piece of content yet, Walsh never talks about his god — a curious omission in a movie about reality and identity.

Is Walsh a coward? Has he renounced Jesus Christ for the filthy lucre of his Daily Wire boss, Ben Shapiro? That doesn’t seem to be the case.

So, wait: “Walsh never talks about god” but he disguises “a religious precept” as a reasonable question? And has Walsh renounced his Christianity to please his Jewish boss, Ben Shapiro? So did you want Walsh to bring up God or not? Which film are we talking about, the one on-screen or the imaginary one Harris is reviewing?

Remember how Democrats were furious with Republicans for asking Ketanji Brown Jackson a “gotcha” question like that?
