What Is A Woman?

Nominations are now open for the 2020 New South Wales Woman of the Year Award. Who can be nominated? Anyone who identifies as a woman. This is not the first year that the Awards have been open to men who have “transitioned”. Last year, a man who identified as a woman was a finalist in the Awards. Binary Australia issued a complaint to the Awards Committee, stating that it makes the Awards a complete farce and is a massive insult to women.

It raises a very important question: What is a woman?

For almost a year now, Binary Australia, an organisation that opposes the new philosophy of gender fluidity, has been asking the female NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, and the female Minister for Women, Bronwyn Taylor, that very question: What is a woman? So far, neither leaders have provided an answer.

In fact, under the current open-minded ‘woke’ philosophy, it is logically impossible to define what a woman is. The current philosophy says, ‘You’re a woman if you think you’re a woman.” But that’s not a definition. It’s a circular argument. You can’t define something by its own term. The statement, “A woman is anyone who thinks they’re a woman” is a completely meaningless statement! It makes as much sense as saying “A truck is anything that thinks it’s a truck.”

No. A truck is an ACTUAL THING with clearly defined, objective characteristics. A truck is not merely a concept or a feeling. And it is those clearly defined characteristics of a truck that help me to clearly differentiate a truck from everything else, including myself. I might wake up one day and think I’m a truck, but those feelings or thoughts would be misplaced, because a truck is a clearly defined ACTUAL OBJECT – not a nebulous concept or feeling.

Furthermore, it doesn’t even make sense to say that you ‘think’ that you’re something, unless that ‘something’ is clearly defined. What does it actually mean to say that someone thinks they’re a woman, if the only definition of a woman that society now has is “A woman is anyone who thinks they are a woman”? It’s completely nonsensical. It effectively means that EVERYONE is potentially a woman (whatever we now mean by ‘woman’).

So, please, help me out here! What is a woman? Give me a definition! How can anyone identify as a woman if the term is no longer defined?

We used to have a very clear definition of a woman. A woman was a person with XX chromosomes and female reproductive organs, and a male was someone with XY chromosomes and male reproductive organs. It was pretty clear. Gender was defined by verifiable biological reality, rather than nebulous feelings or thoughts. But if that biological definition has now been discarded – if a man with XY chromosomes and male reproductive organs now qualifies as a woman – then WHAT IS OUR CURRENT DEFINITION OF A WOMAN? No one has been able to answer that question for me, apart from the ridiculous exercise in circular logic, that says “A woman is someone who thinks they’re a woman”.

Out of curiosity, I looked up a variety of online dictionaries and encyclopaedias to see how they define the term “woman”. Almost all of them skirt around the issue by defining a woman as a “female” person. That, of course, is no help whatsoever, as it simply moves the goalposts to needing to define “female”. Wikipedia’s definition starts off along the same lines, “A woman is an adult female human”, but then it provides more detail;
 
“𝙏𝙮𝙥𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮, 𝙖 𝙬𝙤𝙢𝙖𝙣 𝙝𝙖𝙨 𝙩𝙬𝙤 𝙓 𝙘𝙝𝙧𝙤𝙢𝙤𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙞𝙨 𝙘𝙖𝙥𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙜𝙣𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙜𝙞𝙫𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙗𝙞𝙧𝙩𝙝 … 𝙁𝙚𝙢𝙖𝙡𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙢𝙮, 𝙖𝙨 𝙙𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙪𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙚𝙙 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙢𝙖𝙡𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙢𝙮, 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙙𝙚𝙨 𝙁𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙤𝙥𝙞𝙖𝙣 𝙩𝙪𝙗𝙚𝙨, 𝙤𝙫𝙖𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨, 𝙪𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙪𝙨, 𝙫𝙪𝙡𝙫𝙖, 𝙗𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙨, 𝙎𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙨 𝙜𝙡𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝘽𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙡𝙞𝙣’𝙨 𝙜𝙡𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙨.”
 
Apparently, someone needs to tell Wikipedia that they are living in the dark ages.

The spokesperson for Binary Australia, Kirralie Smith, recently spoke in a video clip, complaining about this kind of fluffy thinking that has warped society’s attitudes about gender. She says,

“This now places vulnerable girls and all women in ridiculous positions by expecting them to accept males in sport, in changerooms, shelters and prisons, and now these Awards for women.”

Binary Australia continues to demand from the NSW State Government a clear definition of a ‘woman’. The government, however, remains silent on the issue. Kirralie Smith states,

“These politicians refuse to answer a simple question. How can they justify a Ministry and a Department for something that they cannot even define?”

It’s a good question, isn’t it?
