Matt Walsh, at the Daily Wire famously asked that question in a documentary, and the left-world is going crazy. I'm no biologist, but I can work a dictionary, and the answer is pretty simple. A woman is an adult human female. That is reality, and it will get you cancelled in many circles these days. As I lurk across the internet these days, I'm seeing a tapestry of threads, from the upcoming Roe decision to the various transgender movements, to discussions about personal choice and free speech. It's a strange tapestry of competing messages that seems to be vaguely unhinged. Instapundit has a thread on it this morning.
I saw on thread recently that a man who chose reproductive freedom by submitting to a vasectomy was somehow lesser than a man who retained a high sperm count.
In 1984, I made the decision to get the snip. My wife and I were very happily married, and she was pregnant with our fourth child. I figured that the procedure would save me a lot of moony over the years, if only that I wouldn't be buying diapers or remodeling a nursery. I got it done on a Friday at about noon and was back to work on Monday morning.
Best money I ever spent. I have never once regretted the decision. My body, my choice. Some might way that my choice affected a woman's reproductive choice. Maybe so, but I never hid the fact, and if a woman wanted to get pregnant, she was free to do so, just not with me.
