“What Is a Woman” has dropped like a bomb into the center of the political sphere …
But while there’s been no shortage of public praise and outrage, those you’d expect the most to give their opinions are running for the hills. According to emails published by Walsh, movie critics are refusing to even review the movie. …
I went to Rotten Tomatoes just prior to penning this piece to check and see if the dynamic illustrated has changed. Have critics begun to review the movie in the days after its release? The simple answer is no. Currently, there is still only one review, done by a right-leaning Hollywood site. And as the emails released by Walsh show, the anger from critics is palpable, lashing out for even being asked to watch the movie.
A few months ago, hundreds of critics were happy to not only watch but cheer Fresh, a movie about cannibal who hacks up & sells women’s body parts. Half of them liked Human Centipede, a movie about force feeding people human feces. But What Is A Woman was too offensive for them. https://t.co/KFA2MaPhvN pic.twitter.com/WCk1Nd0Uio

What you are seeing in those responses is intellectual cowardice perpetrated by a group of people who are too scared to have their irrational beliefs challenged. Moreover, the fear of being called a bigot outweighs everything for those who make their living in Hollywood.
The question “what is a woman” puts the wokester is an impossible position. They just have to run, to avoid the question.
