Transgender Woman Files Complaints When Women’s Salons Won’t Wax Her Male Genitalia

Transgender Woman Files Complaints When Women’s Salons Won’t Wax Her Male Genitalia

“At one point, the complainant compared the business owner to a neo-Nazi.”

A transgender woman in British Columbia, Canada, has filed complaints with a human rights tribunal because a woman who owns a home-based salon refused to wax her male genitals. Other salons also are being targeted. Is anyone else getting tired of this madness?

Douglas Quan writes at the National Post:

Accusations fly at human rights hearing into transgender woman’s Brazilian wax complaint

A B.C. Human Rights Tribunal hearing devolved into repeated outbursts and name-calling this week as it considered a transgender woman’s complaint that a home-based salon discriminated against her by denying her a Brazilian wax.

At one point, the complainant compared the business owner to a neo-Nazi. The lawyer for the business owner accused the complainant of engaging in “half-truths and fabrications.” Tribunal adjudicator Devyn Cousineau frequently had to interject to maintain decorum and to keep the hearing from careening off course.

But a substantive question remained at the core of the raucous daylong hearing: should a business be allowed to deny service on the basis of gender identity?

Jessica Yaniv, the complainant, told the hearing she was entitled to receive the advertised wax service and that if the tribunal ruled against her it could lead to a “dangerous” precedent.

“You cannot choose who your clientele is going to be,” she said.

However, business owner Marcia Da Silva said she was not comfortable carrying out a Brazilian wax on a person with male genitalia, nor did she have the training for it.

Anthony Leonardi of the Washington Examiner reports that the salon has already closed:

Salon forced to close after refusing to wax transgender woman’s male genitalia

A Canadian small business owner was forced to close her home-based beauty salon after refusing to provide a Brazilian wax for a transgender woman’s male genitalia…

Da Silva said her refusal to wax Yaniv’s genitalia was because of safety concerns raised by her husband, alleged harassment on Yaniv’s part, and discomfort carrying out a Brazilian wax on male genitalia.

Jay Cameron, a lawyer with the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, is representing Da Silva at the Tribunal.

“Some of my clients have been very significantly affected on a personal level. [Another client also] closed her business, she has been depressed, anxious, sleepless, and that has gone on for a period of many many months,” said Cameron.

“It is a very serious thing to launch a human rights complaint against a person. My clients are people. They have a right to make a living and this has interfered with their livelihood, but also you have the stigma of being associated with this hanging over you.”

Meanwhile, Yaniv seems to be enjoying the spotlight:

According to Ian Miles Cheong of Human Events, Yaniv is going after multiple salons for this, and suggests that if authorities rule in Yaniv’s favor it would be state enforced sexual assault:

State-Enforced Sexual Assault.

This week, the Canadian press erupted with a storm of stories about Jessica Yaniv. A transgender woman, Yaniv is suing fifteen female aestheticians – waxing services operators – for their refusal to wax her male genitalia.

Their refusal to give Yaniv a Brazilian bikini wax was enough for her to accuse them of “transphobia,” and file complaints against the lot of them at the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal.

Should the tribunal side with Yaniv, it will be, arguably, the first case of state-enforced sexual assault…

Crucially, the tribunal would be perpetuating state enforced sexual assault on the women who refused to provide Yaniv intimate services. Women, particularly those who perform intimate services like bikini waxing, would be forced to touch the male genitalia of any biological male who self-identifies as female or risk losing their livelihood.

This is insanity.

How else could you describe it?

    Canada’s oldest rape crisis centre stripped of city funding for refusing to accept trans women

    In a statement, Vancouver Rape Relief said they were the victim of ‘discrimination against women in the name of inclusion’
    Men are strictly banned from spaces operated by Vancouver Rape Relief, and the organization has previously argued that their clients, all of whom are recovering from male violence, do not feel comfortable while in the presence of someone who used to live as a man. “Even deep voices, male insignia like baseball caps and boots can make women nervous,” wrote Lee Lakeman, a founder of the centre, in 2006.
    Founded in 1974, Vancouver Rape Relief has long attracted fierce criticism for refusing to admit trans women into its core services such as peer counselling sessions, shelters or transition homes.

    In 2017, the official opening of the Vancouver Women’s Library, a space with links to Vancouver Rape Relief, was hijacked by protesters who handed out pamphlets reading “this library is run by women who hate other women.”

    When the Licorice Parlour, an East Vancouver candy store, put up a poster in support of a Vancouver Rape Relief fundraiser in May, the shop was hit with online harassment and negative reviews for being “oppressive” and “transphobic.”
    In 1995, the organization was the subject of a discrimination lawsuit led by Kimberly Nixon, a post-operative transgender woman who was denied Vancouver Rape Relief programming.

    “She was rejected from the training program because she did not share the same life experiences as women born and raised as girls and into womenhood,” writes Vancouver Rape Relief on their website.

    The B.C. Court of Appeals ultimately ruled in favour of Vancouver Rape Relief, and a further appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada was denied.

    It’s clear that the pervert will win given the way the BC Human Rights thing operates.

    Here’s a recent example. The screaming headline is yet another example of how the left-wing media portrays those with a different point of view,

Eew. It’s a long way from Lawrence v. Texas. To paraphrase Erick Erickson: “You will be made to handle their junk.”

She’s not a woman if she’s got a penis. She’s a he and he’s a person in need of help. If you have a dick and you want to be a woman you have mental health issues. Plain and simple. People are working feverishly to convince us otherwise and shame us for speaking the truth. Screw that.

    It appears from one of the photo captions that he not only wants to be a woman but a lesbian at that. So he thinks he’s a she yet is attracted to other women.

    Makes perfect sense.

    Criminal Justice Prof. Mike Adams of UNC/Wilmington wrote this years ago:

    Sometimes I will ask my new legal students, “Do you believe a man can become a woman by removing his penis? Those of you who answered yes — Do you believe that same man can have his penis surgically attached to his forehead and become a unicorn? If not, why not?”

Morning Sunshine | July 23, 2019 at 11:16 am

hopefully this is what will help swing the pendulum back into sanity. Maybe. I can hope, right? And – it said there is a religious issue here on the part of the salon owners – “religion and culture” – dare I hope that some of those ladies are of the protected religion?

Poor darlin’ needs one of those pocket size chainsaw beard trimmer combo tools.

Really, Canada? REALLY?!!

Transversal physical attributes. Mental (e.g. sexual orientation), too?

Might be a communication problem. “Wax” sounds exactly like “whacks”. I would need to hear the actual conversation but maybe he was asking for a gender reassignment procedure? Opportunity lost.

Folks can snark about this deranged guy if they want, but let’s also realize this is akin to demanding that we be forced to proclaim that the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. As Theodore Darlrymple once pointed out, being compelled to participate in a lie is to (in a small way) become evil yourself.

We’re just a few years from this ourselves. It is just tolerance they want. Whoops, now you need to participate in the honeymoon.

    For years the LGBT crowd told us all they wanted was gay marriage and everything would be just fine… but it didn’t stop there and it will never stop… all enabled by the MSM and the Democrat party.

“Her Male Genitalia”

Why is LI parroting progressive nonsense?

Time for a repost-

Are you having trouble adjusting to the brave new world of transgenderism?
Do you find yourself confused when reading news reports and opinion columns regarding transgendered individuals?
Are you constantly exclaiming, “What the hell did I just read?”

Well, allow me to teach you a very simple trick to make sense of all the nonsense. Used entirely inside one’s own head this method makes any byline completely trans-parent!

–Simply replace the word “transgender” in any news article or broadcast with the word “fake.”

Spat With Transgender Woman?
No, no…
Spat With ‘Fake’ Woman!
Now you can see – it’s a man pretending to be a woman.

Transgender Man Arrested At Restaurant?
‘Fake’ Man Arrested At Restaurant!
There you go – it’s a woman pretending to be a man.

So easy, so simple…
Makes news reports crystal clear!

But you guys are missing “the rest of the story”……

It’s one thing to identify as a female and then another to believe it to the point of ignoring the physical differences. There are trans demanding Pap smears. That is full on mental illness. It’s more than sad, it’s tragic that to avoid facing reality everyone must be made to live a lie. Do we force people to ignore anorexia?

Seems like this could go away IF government defined “transgender” and differentiated between a person who is in process of trans-gendering and those who have completed the process … i.e., you’re not “transgender/ed” until you’ve completed the process … and the process includes castration, etc.

Since the gov’t likely has records for every citizen which records their gender identity (M/F) – on birth certificates, social security numbers, driver’s licenses, etc., the gov’t should tell all such nutcases that ‘you are what your birth-certificate / DL / SSN says you are’ until such case as you petition the court to have it changed and undergo the chemical / hormonal / surgical procedures required to render you anatomically / functionally correct equivalent.

Until they’re completely (functionally / anatomically) “transgendered”, for a man to claim he’s a woman amounts to claiming false identity – at least as far as state/gov’t records are concerned.

The process of transgendering needs to be made legally burdensome – people should NOT have to recognize such perverted claims before the government recognizes it OFFICIALLY and in the record.

This example is happening in Canada, the issue is common to the English-speaking world and some of Europe.

Here is the USA, women vote overwhelmingly for the Democratic Party and tilt overwhelmingly liberal. This case is one result.

Modern women (as a group, not every individual), You Built That.

Let those who built in live with it, this cray-cray wasnt’t designed by traditionalists or any flavor of conservative. -Indirectly-, it’s a result of those two groups abandoning education and neglecting the intellectual and culture wars. You can’t win when you don’t show up.

You have a typo in the title of your article her should be his.

As a former pig farmer, I have the right equipment to solve that hairy problem. And for him, I would do it for free.

For those of you that don’t already know:
I won’t put a percentage on it, but a large percent of homosexuals and transsexuals were sexually abused/used/neglected as children.

Many who were abused as children believe it was their fault, they’re ashamed, they feel guilty, etc. Also, said abuse powerfully affects their emotions and wiring.

Because they feel guilty and ashamed, most abused a children/teenagers don’t want others to know about it. Therefore, the whole “born this way” concept helps them, by preventing them from having to explain why they are the way they are. They can avoid the shame and humiliation of telling about a past they may or may not remember, and may or may not be able to bear telling about.

“Beyond Betrayal: Taking Charge of Your Life After Boyhood Sexual Abuse” by Richard Gartner explains these profound effects of abuse on boys and men. I highly recommend it and others, like “Fractured Mind” by Robert Oxnam.

Anyway, the folks engaged in the movement of pushing profoundly dysfunctional sexual habits into mainstream culture are not being honest about why they are, and what they are. Therefore, it is up to us to learn about it and reclaim the territory they have taken. Read the book. It will tell you mountains.

Also, these folks have boundary issues, and letting them near kids is a huge mistake. Huge. Obviously. . . .

http://www.MaleSurvivor.Org has resources to help.

This is not simply some Canadian foolishness. The gender identity provisions in the US Equality Act will lead to the same bullying by female identifying biological males in the US: harassment of ethnic minority beauticians, biological males in girls’ dressing rooms, prosecution or lawsuits for not using the harrasser’s preferred pronouns, female identifying biological males dominating women’s sports, etc.

Did anyone catch it’s identifying as a lesbian and it has a dick ?

It would be justice if one of the salons would agree to wax and then hire a “specialist” to do the waxing and accidentally add some superglue to the mix.

    UnCivilServant in reply to Kevin Smith. | July 23, 2019 at 12:55 pm

    Standard depillatory wax can remove skin from certain areas of the male anatomy where it is not strongly rooted to underlying fascia. No need for superglue.

    If he is really a woman, this will not be an issue. Otherwise, following through with his demand will result in a new soprano singer, and save on the costs of transitioning.

    Massinsanity in reply to Kevin Smith. | July 23, 2019 at 2:42 pm

    Or outsource it to a [gay] man. This guy would go running as he gets off on having a strange woman touch his junk. After all, he is a lesbian.

It’s clear that female with balls or even a regular biological male has the right to enroll in a cosmetology school’s Brazil Wax class in the USSA under Title IX.


Another mental patient in the news.

Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

This creep, and likely a dangerous one, has recently made an application at a public facility for a “partially nude” pool party, with children.

If there was justice.”OK here we go. Oops took off a little too much. Here hold this paper towel there. It will staunch the bleeding. “

This guy must have a condition known as autogynephilia. It’s a narcissistic thing. Some of these guys do like bullying women, especially in traditional women’s spaces: bathroom, changing rooms, and now, spas/salons.

caseoftheblues | July 23, 2019 at 2:26 pm

Sorry MrE but no matter what is cut off or what is attached a male remains a male and a female a female…mutilating them in some fashion cannot or will not change that any more than any law or regulation that might be passed.

    No need for sorry, blues. 😉 I agree. My suggestion of legal definition and recognition of transgendered persons on an individual basis with castration (re-plumbing) a prerequisite to gov’t/state recognition of the individual, is to weed out the pretenders – which I expect are the majority of them. I suspect a lot of them would change their tune if they knew their junk was on the chopping block.

      Close The Fed in reply to MrE. | July 23, 2019 at 9:39 pm

      Mr. E:
      I hear you, but when they have surgical mutilations, they’re more likely to die of suicide. I feel very badly for them, because I know people with this problem and I know what’s behind it.

      I loathe the militant ones; we need to put our foot down. But I don’t wish the non-militant ones dead. Just that they get therapy, like EMDR, etc.

“Transgender,” my ass. This guy is a transvestite.

He could have solved his problem by just going to the same salon michelle obama goes to to wax her/his/its testicles.

Next, this guy will be on the cover of Teen Vogue, engaged to Bradley Manning.

Hmm. I’m so old I remember when those of us saying that caving to the demands of the LGBT lobby would only lead to more and more radical demands were dismissed as silly conspiracy theorists.

I don’t care what proponents of “logic” claim, the slippery slope is not a fallacy; it is a basic fact of human nature.

The old truism “give ’em an inch and they’ll take a mile” was coined for a reason.
I really wish I could do a photo comment…..

Sorry, but in the subway pic it is manspreading. Case closed.

caseoftheblues | July 23, 2019 at 3:56 pm

MrE…you are correct re the pretenders…they are a larger group than the true gender dysphoria suffers, which is a tiny tiny group….they are referred to as Transtrenders. Just people getting on something they think will make them seem special or different or sadly in some cases kids pushed into it by parents serving their own agenda.

Since he is not a “she” and never will be, how the heck can he claim to be a lesbian. He’s just a normal guy with all the equipment who likes to have sex with girls while dressed up as one.

I wouldn’t wax him either.

That is an easy one to fix. Explain that they are not equipped or trained to wax a penis and scrotum. Once IT insists have an ironclad waiver that it must sign. Once signed, load IT’s groin with the stickiest wax covering everything. When the wax is yanked off hopefully the top layer of skin as well come off as well.

That will or IT of ever trying that again.


    I totally agree…this “Lezz-B-Dude” is just being a dick…!
    (pun intended !)

    After this particular customer signed the iron clad waver, I’d say…
    “Ok, hun….since you are “differently equipped” we can’t use wax… I’ll be using these special…Brazilian Pliers” !!!!
    (snap, snap, snap)
    “Let me heat’em up first…OK…now, Hold Still…this might sting a little”…!!!”
    “Opps, sorry…got a little skin in there…”
    Hey, come on, Ya Weenie…big girls don’t cry..!!!”

texansamurai | July 23, 2019 at 4:26 pm

there’s a reason he/she/it lives in canada–at least for the time being

“Dude using legal system to assault women he tried to force to touch his junk.”

Dude, rapist training camp much?

Canada is a lost cause by this point. Time to move on.

We have so many of them in Portland these days that I hardly notice anymore. One brings its 10 yo daughter to the coffee shop a few times a week and all I can think is “there is a kid who is going to need A LOT of therapy.”

OTOH, having Kathleen Turner play Chandler Bing’s dad on “Friends” was one of the genius casting moves of all time.

Maybe the women of Canada will finally vote for a somewhat conservative government for a change. If not, no sympathy for them. Vote in liberals and get (mis)treated liberally.

Wow – no one’s caught this yet: this guy is the Hippo ballerina from Fantasia:

“Her Male Genitalia”

We need to stop normalizing and playing along with these mentally sick people. Stop calling people like this “her”. Male genitalia obviously makes you male and a him/his. Bruce Jenner is a man. Always has been and always will be. So is the deviant in this article.

Louis Davout | July 24, 2019 at 12:10 am

Oh Canada
Where my balls can get waxed
I’ll identify as a girl
But never get them wacked
My rights beat yours
How dare the normies ban
Though I’m a “girl”
And also lesbian!
So smile and don’t you frown
This world is full of clowns.

Insane that you refer to this man as a “woman” in your headline.

Stop pandering to their psychosis.

This male still has his “junk” so he’s no transgender.

You blogged last week about Canadian activist Lindsay Sheppard having her twitter account permanently closed. This thing (Yaniv) is the same one who lodged the complaint about her.
