Matt Walsh asked just one hypothetical question on Tuesday to shut down a transgender debate opponent who argued against the biological gender binary.
Speaking at a Young America’s Foundation event at New Mexico State University, one of the brave individuals who dared debate Walsh identified as a transgender EMT and argued that biological sex is a “complicated spectrum.”
After a respectful back-and-forth in which Walsh registered his disagreement with his opponent, he fired off one last question.
“You’re responding to a health emergency. Biological male — somebody with a penis — is having a medical emergency and they say to you, ‘I think I’m having a miscarriage.’ Would you check them to see if they’re having a miscarriage? Would you consider that a possibility for them?” Walsh asked.
The question silenced the trans advocate.
After nearly 10 seconds of silence, Walsh’s opponent responded, “No.”
A trans EMT tried to use his medical training to prove that sex is not binary. He ran into trouble when I asked him how he’d respond to a patient with a penis who claims he’s having a miscarriage.

The opponent then argued that body parts do not define whether someone is male or female, nor does the ability to become pregnant, because many women cannot, for some reason or another, get pregnant.
“Truth matters and they can’t get pregnant — that’s the truth — so how are they still woman?” Walsh’s opponent asked.
That’s when Walsh delivered the rhetorical knockout blow, arguing that just because some humans are born with one leg, for example, does not mean humans are not a bipedal species.
For the same reason that I can rightly say that human beings have two legs. If a person is born with only one leg, that doesn’t call into question the statement that human beings have two legs. A person being born with one leg doesn’t mean that now legs are on a spectrum and we can’t say anything at all about how many legs a person has — “Who knows, they could be a centipede, you know? They could have 100 legs.” No, we know human beings have two legs. If a human is born without two legs, something went wrong, they were supposed to have that second leg — something went wrong.
Emphasizing the point, Walsh explained that if a woman cannot get pregnant, doctors run tests to understand why because it’s known that something is wrong if women, who by their nature should be able to get pregnant, cannot. On the other hand, if a man cannot become pregnant, doctors do not run tests because men by their nature cannot become pregnant.
Walsh’s opponent was once again left in silence, then simply turned and walked away. The exchange received more than 10 million views on social media by Wednesday afternoon.
ANOTHER DUMP DEMOCRAT, I WILL NOT CALL YOU A HE OR SHE, I WILL CALL YOU A MALE OR FEMALE. IT EASY TO TELL MALES TRYING TO LOOK LIKE A FEMALE IS UGLY CAUSE YOU CAN NOT HIDE THE MALE FEATURES. THEY WILL SHOW THRU EVERY TIME.
