‘Your event expresses views that are in violation of our Community Guidelines,’ according to the notice
The platform Eventbrite has removed a post promoting a screening of “What is a Woman?” — the Matt Walsh movie about gender dysphoria — citing a policy that forbids hate and harassment, according to a representative from Turning Point USA.
Maggie Fuchs, a TPUSA field representative, posted to Twitter on Sept. 8 an email from Eventbrite regarding a TPUSA event at Western Kentucky University.

“We do not permit events, content, or creators that promote or encourage hate, violence, or harassment towards others and/or oneself,” the email read.
“In this instance, we have determined that your event expresses views that are in violation of our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service and is therefore not permitted on the Eventbrite platform. As a result, your event listing has been removed.”
The Western Kentucky University chapter of TPUSA responded quickly to confirm that the screening would take place.
“Eventbrite removed our event to watch @MattWalshBlog ‘What is a Woman’. The event will be happening,” its tweet read.

The Daily Wire entered the Twitter exchange with a quote from Matt Walsh: “They make a dramatic declaration saying that this hit film is hate speech. And then when you ask, ‘well, can you explain that? How is it hate speech?’ Nothing. No explanation.”

“What is a Woman?” can be viewed online by Daily Wire members, and Walsh has posted clips to his social media accounts. It includes interviews with doctors and intellectuals on the gender ideologies that hold sway at many institutions.
