A conservative commentator confronts pro-choice protesters by quizzing them on ‘what is a woman’ in a new documentary that claims that pediatricians who are helping teens transition to a different gender are prescribing a hormone blocker that has been used for chemical castration.
Matt Walsh, a father-of-four who hosts a podcast for The Daily Wire, said he has been asking the question for years and has yet to receive a straight answer.
‘What is a women? Can one person tell me what a woman is?’ Walsh asked protesters as he walked along the route with a megaphone at the Women’s March last year.
One protester yelled back, ‘If you’re not here for women, we ask you to leave!’ Others remained silent.
The protesters’ reactions are the center of a new Daily Wire documentary, ‘What is a Woman?’ that is set to be released on June 1. A book with the same title is set to be published on June 14.
The trailer was released Saturday – the day hundreds of thousands are expected to march in Washington, D.C. and across the country for a ‘Bans Off Our Bodies’ Day of Action for Abortion Rights rally.
The event, organized by Women’s March, comes after Politico published a leaked draft opinion that suggests the Supreme Court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Walsh counter protested at the Women’s March in 2021 and asked: ‘What is a woman?’
On Saturday, Walsh told Dailymail.com that while he won’t be making an appearance at the march today, he said his message will be clear in the form of billboards along the route.
‘We thought it would be important for the folks marching today to see this message,’ Walsh explained.
A billboard promoting the show has been set up along the route of the Washington DC march, along with another in New York City.
‘If you ask this question – what is a woman – they become uncomfortable and they simply cannot answer it,’ Walsh told Dailymail.com.
‘Some of these activists we’ve encountered become militant, vicious, when we ask this question,’ he said.
Walsh added that he has found that the ‘average person’ supports their message, but will not always speak out for fear of backlash and being canceled.
Walsh said asking the question is just the beginning, a ‘door to a broader topic of gender ideology’ and how it affects our children.
In the trailer for the documentary, Walsh speaks to pediatrician Dr. Michelle Forcier about the puberty blockers used to help teenagers transition to a different gender, which the doctor explains are completely reversible.
Walsh then asks her specifically about the drug Leuprolide acetate, also known as ‘Lupron’, which he points out is also used to ‘castrate sex offenders.’
In the trailer, Dr. Forcier then appears to shut down the interview.
The drug is also used to treat symptoms associated with advanced prostate cancer, to treat endometriosis and is used, along with other medications, to treat anemia.

What is Leuprolide acetate ‘Lupron’ – a drug used to help teenagers transition to a different gender
Leuprolide acetate is an LHRH agonist that is most commonly used in chemical castration today.
Leuprolide is also used to stop early puberty (precocious puberty) in children.
It helps to delay sexual development (such as growth of the breasts/testicles) and the start of menstrual periods.
It also helps slow down early bone growth to increase the likelihood of reaching normal adult height.
Leuprolide works by decreasing the amount of sex hormones that a child’s body makes (estrogen in girls, testosterone in boys).
In the documentary, Walsh also speaks to Scott Newgent, 47-year-old transgender man living in Texas, about whether or not there’s a ‘social contagion’ happening with teens transitioning to solve their problems.
‘I’m a biological woman who medically transitioned to appear like a male. But I will never be a man.’
Newgent is the founder of TReVoices, a group of trans educators who oppose radical gender activism and seek to educate politicians and families about the reality of gender dysphoria.
‘It got me at 42,’ Newgent said, pointing at Walsh. ‘Your child doesn’t have a chance.’
Walsh has spoken against trans issues regularly on his show and during appearances on Fox News and Dr. Phil.
In a video in response to the HBO documentary ‘Transhood,’ Walsh said that parents supporting their trans children is a ‘deranged’ form of ‘child abuse.’
Earlier this year, trans activists accused Walsh of trying to lure them into participating in an anti-trans documentary, Insider reported.
Eli Erlick told the news outlet she and her 14-year-old trangender child were recruited to appear in the documentary.
Walsh, who has history of controversial tweets and on-air comments, was suspended from Twitter for 12 hours earlier this year for tweeting that Jeopardy champion Amy Schneider and UPenn swimmer Lia Thomas were men.
‘The greatest female Jeopardy champion of all time is a man,’ Walsh wrote in a tweet on December 30, according to the Daily Wire. ‘The top female college swimmer is a man. The first female four star admiral in the Public Health Service is a man. Men have dominated female high school track and the female MMA circuit. The patriarchy wins in the end.’

‘I am not referring to an individual person as if she is two people,’ Walsh wrote in another tweet. ‘Everyone else can run around sounding like maniacs if they want but I will not be participating. No thank you.’
The tweets went against Twitter’s ‘hateful conduct’ policy, which prohibits users from using ‘violence’ on the basis of ‘race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation and gender identity.’
Walsh appeared on Tucker Carlson just minutes after being suspended.
‘I just found out five minutes ago, just before we went on the air, that I just got suspended on Twitter because I pointed out that biological males are men,’ Walsh said.

‘And, this to me is all part of the game here. That this is what leftism is and if you criticize it then they’re gonna shut you down because they realize—it’s not like they can engage intellectually. It’s not like they can defend, intellectually, any of the examples that you just played.’
