Scott Newgent, the trans man whose heartbreaking and powerful interview in The Daily Wire‘s groundbreaking new documentary “What is a Woman?” exposes the lie that medically altering people’s biological sexes leads to happiness, says the film is helping with the healing process.

Newgent, who in the film tells The Daily Wire‘s Matt Walsh how transitioning medically did not actually work and had devastating health consequences, is on a mission to stop the pro-trans community from hurting confused children. In a heartfelt tweet storm Friday, Newgent said positive reaction to the film is helping break through years of physical pain and emotional turmoil.

“I have been angry for so long about what medical transitioning has done to my health, the reckless disregard for children’s health, how pharma & surgeons like Dr Curtis Crane are making millions butchering people without regard & the LGBTQ allowing fetish flags to be the backbone of homosexuality,” Newgent wrote.

“I’ve been livid, walking through life with a swift, ‘f— you,’ to everyone I felt was taking advantage of me or others stepping out of line, hurting others with no regard. All of these messages about my interview in the documentary, ‘What is a Woman?‘ I believe it’s healing me in many ways. It feels like the earth opened up and said, ‘We see you; what happened to you is wrong; we see the pain.'”


Newgent, who told Walsh that despite multiple surgeries she cannot ever become a man, is dedicated to stopping the pro-trans community from chemically or surgically altering children. TReVoices, an organization Newgent founded, goes by the tagline, “Trans Adults & Others SCREAMING To STOP Childhood Medical Transition.” Newgent accuses the medical and pharmaceutical communities of making an average of $1.3 million per transitioning child by “claiming they have a cure for puberty.”

“Parents, medical transition is not for children; it’s creating an illusion of the opposite gender for comfort,” Newgent wrote on the site’s home page. “Adults have the right to choose, but it doesn’t cure anything; it’s experimental, and it is not safe.”

The movie has given Newgent, a 48-year-old mother of three who attempted to transition at age 42, a bigger platform to get the message out.

“Scott Newgent is the hero of the film,” Walsh said. “Such a remarkable contrast between the raw openness and honesty in this interview and the evasiveness and defensiveness from the ‘experts’ I spoke to.”

While much of the reaction to “What is a Woman?” has been predictably negative, with woke reviewers refusing to watch it, The Daily Wire coming under a cyber attack during its premiere, and Leftists calling it “bigoted” to even ask the question that is the movie’s title, Newgent says people have sent messages of hope and support.

“‘We are also so so proud of you for making a light through the darkness,'” Newgent tweeted, citing examples of  the online support. “‘So proud of you, kiddo!'”

“These kind words have connected and engulfed me like a mother holding her child, soothing a scraped knee,” Newgent wrote. “I didn’t know I needed that, but I guess I did.

“A sincere, non-politically charged, sincere thank you,” Newgent continued. “A heartfelt thank you to all of you. I am now healing, and it would not have happened without every incredible message from so many nurturing women and men. Men? Ya’ll have surprised me too!”
