Candace Owens uninvited from appearance; saying ‘only women can give birth’ made some feel ‘unsafe’

Conservative political activist Candace Owens, the founder of Blexit, a movement to encourage black people to leave the Democratic Party, said she was uninvited from appearing on a podcast because of her belief in biology.

Taking to Twitter, Owens said Jameela Jamil “revoked” an invitation because she said in a tweet that “only women can give birth.”

The reason being, according to Owens, is that such an assertion makes a transgender co-worker of Jamil’s feel “unsafe.”

“SAD TO ANNOUNCE that @jameelajamil has revoked my invitation to her podcast bc I tweeted ‘only women can give birth’. Apparently the statement made her trans co-workers feel ‘unsafe’. My refusal to untether myself from biological realities has cost me, yet again. SAD!” she tweeted.

The podcaster, Jameela Jamil, is a British actress, writer and model with well over 2 million followers on Instagram.

Ironically, Jamil founded “I Weigh,” an Instagram community with around 986,000 followers that looks to promote “radical inclusivity, so no one feels alone.”

Unless you’re a conservative activist who believes in the limits of biology, of course.

Not that Owens should feel alone in being shunned by liberals, millions and millions of Christians also face the wrath of the “woke” left over their beliefs.

But rest assured, as seen in a tweet earlier this month, Jamil insists that she does not believe in the “cancel culture.”

Sharing a clip of her discussing inclusivity during a recent appearance on “The Daily Show,” Jamil said: “When it comes to the more flippant side of Cancel culture: We are turning it into a Twitter sport and I’m not sure it’s working for us or getting us anywhere.”

By no means is Owens backing down, as seen in a response to one social media user.

“I say all the time that I’ll never understand why the LGB community picked up the “T”. I’ve never met a gay or lesbian person who is delusional about biology,” she said.

It’s quite remarkable that those who swear by science when it comes to the climate change ruse are quick to eschew biology when it comes to gender and the sexes.

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., was among those who weighed in on Owens’ behalf.

“Radical political correctness makes me feel very safe,” he said in a sarcastic tweet.

Here’ a quick sampling of other responses from Twitter:
