Dailywire writer Matt Walsh and a Doctor got into it on Twitter, after Walsh asked what should be an easy question: What is a man?
“Doctor, what is a man? Please provide a definition. Thank you.” Walsh asked.
“It’s a scientific and medical fact that men can get pregnant and also have abortions. Trans men and non-binary individuals are human beings who deserve to be acknowledged by society. They choose their own identity—not me, not you, not any doctor, and certainly not any politician,” Eugene Gu MD answered.”Some define a man as a person who is genetically male with a Y chromosome. But some intersex individuals with a Y chromosome can have female sexual characteristics and even give birth. Some say a man is anyone who identifies as a man regardless of female sexual characteristics.”
But Walsh was not satisfied with his answer, as it was not clear.
“A man is anyone who identifies as a man.” That is not a definition. What is the thing they are identifying as? Don’t just say “man” again. You have to tell me what a man actually is. Or do you not know?
I define a man as anyone who identifies as a man. Gender is a social construct and even though humans are a sexually dimorphic species in a bimodal distribution, biological sex still does exist on a spectrum with intersex individuals who are 1.7% of the population in between,” Gu tried again.
“You still haven’t told me what a man is. You’ve just told me that anyone who says they are one is one. Which is absurd, of course, but also it’s not a definition. When someone identifies as a man, WHAT are they identifying as? What is a man? You haven’t defined it yet. Matt Walsh added.
“I gave you a definition. You didn’t like it. Do you thrive on social media confrontation and stoking artificial mob outrage?” Gu said irritated.
“No, you didn’t give me a definition. You gave me a tautological, circular, and transparently absurd statement that in no way even resembles a definition. I will try this one more time. Can you please define the word “man” without using the word “man” in your definition?” Walsh asked one last time.
“You want to define a man as a human with a Y chromosome, external male genitals, male gonads that produce sperm, has more testosterone than estrogen, and does not have any female reproductive structures. I say a man is anyone who identifies that way including trans and intersex.” the Doctor answered almost correctly.
This is scary I want my doctor to know the difference between genders. Wouldn’t you? If I go to a doctor’s office they better not give some ambiguous PC ridiculous answer like this. How can you trust a doctor that can’t even answer this basic question?
