Christian conservative commentator Candace Owens says she will not be appearing on a British podcast with Jameela Jamil after the podcaster rescinded the invite to speak on the show.
According to the Christian Post, Owens said she believes Jamil canceled the show after Owens and the podcaster exchanged divided messages on Twitter about a news story where a transgender man gave birth using a female sperm donor.
“SAD TO ANNOUNCE that @jameelajamil has revoked my invitation to her podcast [because] I tweeted ‘only women can give birth,’” Owens said on Twitter. “Apparently the statement made her trans co-workers feel ‘unsafe.’”
In the tweet, Owens also shared a screenshot that showed Jamil telling Owens she was disinvited from the podcast appearance because “we have trans people working with us” and they could be offended by Owens’ tweet.
“You are both free to say whatever you like about this publicly,” Jamil’s message read. “I’m sure you will have an entertaining spin. But nothing is worth my friends and coworkers feeling unsafe.”
So many people take offense at almost anything. If they don't throw the word "racism" around, then they're usually saying they feel "unsafe". I think that word has lost its meaning in so many situations, such as this case with Candace Owens. What on earth would Jamil's transgendered friends & co-workers feel unsafe about Candace Owens' statement that only women can give birth?
Does a disagreement of opinion (even if it's a blazing, and infallible, truth like this one: "only women can give birth") frighten those who believe differently so much that they freeze, or can't respond? Even if that were the case, how does it affect their safety? I really don't think people think before they say they feel unsafe, or might feel unsafe, over a remark, a comment, a statement that doesn't square with their beliefs. I wish one of these flakes would explain this to me. Really, I'm being sincere.

I could be wrong, but my personal belief is that most of these claims of feeling "unsafe" are nothing more than a manipulation tactic by spoiled brats that can't bear the thought of not getting their own way on anything or who can't stand the thought that anyone would dare to disagree with them about pretty much anything.
