    B.C. Human Rights Commission actually gets it right on Jessica Yaniv



    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/transgender-woman-human-rights-waxing-1.5330807


    The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has ruled against a transgender woman who brought 15 discrimination complaints after she was refused wax services at more than a dozen beauty salons.

    Jessica Yaniv, who identifies as female but has male genitalia, contacted the businesses through Facebook messages requesting appointments, including for a Brazilian wax which is a service to remove most or all female pubic hair.

    But according to Tuesday's decision, "... human rights legislation does not require a service provider to wax a type of genitals they are not trained for and have not consented to wax."

    Aestheticians who appeared at the hearing testified they declined to wax Yaniv for various reasons, including religious grounds, personal safety concerns, and lack of training when it came to male genitalia.

    The tribunal also heard from a waxing expert who testified that waxing female versus male genitalia required different training, and that an untrained person attempting to wax someone's scrotum could seriously injure the client.

    The legal advocacy organization Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms represented five of the aesthetician respondents.

    "Self-identification does not erase physiological reality," said Jay Cameron of the the Justice Centre. "No woman should be compelled to touch male genitals against her will, irrespective of how the owner of the genitals identifies."

    The ruling also found that Yaniv engaged in improper conduct by misleading the tribunal, by being untruthful, and by engaging in extortionate behaviour and scurrilous attacks.

    It was also noted that she brought most of her 15 complaints against women described as "not white," while expressing racial animosity on social media and in her testimony.

    Yaniv was ordered to pay $2,000 to each of three respondents.

    Quasi-judicial Tribunals and Authorities should be disbanded.

    The truth and forensic evidence should be admissible as a defense and Canadians must have the right to appeal to a superior court.

    Of course he/she/it has no intention or ability to pay the assigned costs so that circus will be paid for by us.

    Even a stopped clock is right twice a day...

    Actually, I think they knew and feared the certain public backlash of another radical decision.

    Now... you have to wonder... if the dude REALLY wanted his balls waxed... I'm sure he could have found a place. Let the free market do its thing. Maybe he could have even put an add in some deviant newspaper or something.

    By the way...... Islam is big on the regular removal of pubic hair for men... and you know, in general this seems to be a rapidly growing trend... Jonathon should have just reached out to some porno stars or imams for a good recommendation
