Conservative influencer Candace Owens had an intense exchange of words with feminist activist and Hollywood actress Jameela Jamil, who wouldn’t let her participate in a podcast as planned, after Owens suggested that only women can give birth.
The war of words began on Monday, Dec. 30, 2019, on Twitter after Jamil canceled an upcoming appearance by Owens as a result of her apparently “transphobic” statements, claiming that the mere presence of the conservative activist on the set would create an “unsafe” environment for LGBT staff, the Western Journal reported.
“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.

Owens announced the cancellation along with a screenshot of a text message from Jamil to Owens’ representative that said, “I’m sorry. We have trans people working with us. I can’t have Candace on the podcast anymore.”
This untimely cancellation comes after Owens had some fun with an article in the British newspaper The Daily Mirror, which carried the title, over the weekend: “Transgender man gives birth to non-binary partner’s baby with female sperm donor”.
Ironically correcting the headline to align it with biological reality, Owens wrote: “Woman gives birth to partner’s baby with male sperm donor. There. I fixed it for you.”

Jamil responded, although her tweet has now been removed, saying, “It’s good to see a young couple in love, having a happy baby. Their gender is none of my business, worrying about it and making fun of them is a pointless waste of time (it’s just bullying) and they’re not hurting anyone. I wish them well. There I fixed it for you,” according to the Daily Mail.
Owens didn’t back down and this time she responded “‘LOL”-only women can get pregnant and only men can get them pregnant now [saying this] is considered a form of bullying.
“Keep us posted when 2+2=4 becomes a form of bullying as well,” Owens added.
Owens’s ironic response was exactly on point, as the left is popularizing the label ‘bully,’ ‘intimidator’ or ‘bigoted’ to anyone who dares to tell an irrefutable truth such as “only women can give birth,” as this apparently hurts a minority who don’t think so.
The radical left turns a truth like this into an offense and a cause for censorship.
