Question about English (US)

Is the word female ever considered disrespectful when it's used to refer to women?
I saw this guy saying not to use it for women because saying "females" is like objectifying and sounds like it means they're animals something like cattle. But there were also some English speakers who didn't agree with him and were like "This is not Twitter", so I'm a bit confused.
