You just can’t make this up.

The British Columbia’s Human Rights Tribunal (CHRC) recently held hearings on whether women hair removal specialists should be forced to do so on male genitalia. 

Madeleine Kearns at National Reviewhas the details on this “Too Weird to be an Onion” story from Canada, where these estheticians were literally taken to court by a transgendered activist called “J.Y” to represent Jonathan/Jessica Yaniv.

Yaniv has filed 16 different complaints against estheticians in the past year. Yaniv argues that, as a transgender woman, being denied services on account of her gender identity was discriminatory. As “Jessica,” Yaniv explained on Twitter:

This is not about waxing. This about businesses and individuals using their religion and culture to refuse service to protected groups because -they- don’t agree with it or the person and use that to illegally discriminate contrary to the BC Human Rights Code and the CHRC.

This man is under the delusion that he is a woman, so he expects actual women to be compliant in his fantasies.  Shockingly, they weren’t as enthusiastic about this as he had hoped.

But, as you can plainly see, this is not about discrimination against anyone, it’s actually about whether or not you can force a woman to handle male genitals against their wishes – plain and simple.  One attorney correctly observed that forcing a woman to touch a scrotum would be essentially coercing “intimate services.”  Yaniv has targeted many women in order to show how bad this “discrimination” is, and it’s taken a toll on them.

“The damages to these women have been considerable, including stress and depression; at least one woman was forced to close her business. Another, a single mother who worked out of her home, paid Yaniv $2,500 to withdraw the complaint so that she could escape the expense of further litigation. Some of the women Yaniv targeted were immigrants,” explains Kearns.

Comedian Ricky Gervais asked a very pertinent question on Twitter. Though I wouldn’t have put it this way myself, it’s a very insightful query.

“How did we get to the point where women are having to fight for the right to choose whether they wax some big old hairy c*ck & b***s or not?” he wrote.  “It is not a human right to have your meat & veg polished.”
