Conservative commentator Matt Walsh has released a documentary on transgender ideology called “What is a Woman?” and the controversial production has raised questions for many people.
One of them is billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk. In a tweet he put out this weekend, Musk dropped a rhetorical bomb on the transgender narrative.
“We are simultaneously being told that gender differences do not exist and that genders are so profoundly different that irreversible surgery is the only option,” the billionaire wrote, adding, “Perhaps someone wiser than me can explain this dichotomy.”
Musk’s comment came in response to a tweet by independent journalist Matt Taibbi, who has published a review of Walsh’s film on his Substack account.
I wonder if we’re institutionalizing stereotypes about gender in the same way academics have tried to institutionalize stereotypes about how “hard work,” “being polite,” “punctuality” and the “written word” are “white culture.” https://t.co/zFb0QsQvE2

The Daily Wire noted that Walsh responded to Musk’s statement, saying, “I talked to the ‘wise’ in the film and it turns out they can’t explain anything at all.”
Indeed, the bulk of “What is a Woman?” revolves around Walsh asking a number of purported experts on gender theory how the word “woman” can be defined, with none offering a coherent answer.
Kenyan tribe skeptical of transgender ideology
One segment also shows the filmmaker speaking with members of Kenya’s Maasai community about gender fluidity, a concept they struggled to take seriously.
Here’s a nice video to share for #PrideMonth. I spoke to an African tribe about transgenderism. The Left claims that traditional cultures have fluid notions of gender. That’s… not exactly what I found.

Walsh is not the only conservative figure Musk has recently interacted with, as the New York Post reported that he echoed LibsofTikTok founder Chaya Raichik’s question as to why Twitter users who have threatened her life haven’t been removed from the platform.
“A platform cannot be considered inclusive or fair if it is biased against half the country,” he pointed out.
According to Business Insider, Musk is scheduled to participate in an all-hands virtual meeting with Twitter employees on Thursday.
