If there’s one thing the Daily Wire’s Candace Owens is good at, it’s stirring liberals up into a frenzy, especially during her speaking engagements on college campuses. And that’s even more true when tackling questions concerning transgenderism, a mental illness that has graduated to full-on social contagion, infecting the minds of young people all over the country, leaving a trail of destroyed lives in its path. In fact, that’s why people like Owens have decided to focus a lot of attention and energy on this very topic. It’s obliterating kids, as they are being exposed to this ideology in school, mostly during their teenage years, which are already confusing enough without throwing gender identity politics at them.
According to the Daily Wire, Owens responded to a question asked by a student at the University of Albany who wanted to know what she had to say about how just her being on campus “actively victimizes” those who are suffering from gender dysphoria, otherwise known in our modern culture as “transgenderism.”
The question was posed during the TPUSA “LIVE FREE” tour, where the eight-months pregnant Owens, in her typical blunt and no-holds-barred fashion, told the delicate snowflake that “life’s tough,” before going on to suggest the person “get a helmet.”
Whew. She’s a firecracker, isn’t she folks? You have to respect someone with that level of boldness, to march into the lion’s den — the realm of higher education has become infected to the core with progressivism — and not even flinch when the big cats try and rip your throat out. Owens is a tough woman.
“What do you have to say to the trans students here who actively feel victimized by your presence, here?” the female student went on to ask the Daily Wire host.
“Life’s tough, get a helmet, man. I’m too pregnant for this,” Owens replied, which immediately earned a round of applause from attendees. The video clip of the incident has already earned a total of two million views.

Owens continued, “I am over 8 months pregnant with two toddlers at home. If you are a 20-year-old adult who feels ‘actively victimized’ by my standing on stage to speak about social and economic conservatism, it is because your parents failed you, entirely.”
“It is not my job to coddle adults,” the conservative pundit fired off. I’m getting fired up just hearing Owens say this stuff. Young people today need to get a grip. There’s no such thing as a right to not be offended. Being offended might be how you feel by something someone has said, and that’s okay. You can feel offended and think something someone said is mean. You can even urge them to grow and point out why you feel that way. That’s called freedom of speech and it is a foundational principle of this great nation.
What you don’t have the right to do is demand limits be placed on someone else’s free speech. Nope. No sir. Not at all. This principle, this God-given right, works in both directions.
