In a win for at least some semblance of basic decency, a Canadian court has ruled against a transgender woman who sued a group of salons for refusing to wax his unmentionables.
Jessica Yaniv, who was born a man named Jonathan but now “identifies” as a lesbian woman, had garnered no small amount of internet fame for filing a lawsuit against more than a dozen beauticians after they refused to provide him with intimate waxing services, despite the fact that the providers specifically stated they only offered those services to women for anatomical reasons.
To make matters worse, several of the waxing service providers Yaniv had targeted were immigrant women who worked out of their own homes and had small children in the house at the time, according to reports.
In response to being told that none of the salons were willing to wax his testicles, Yaniv filed suits against 15 beauticians demanding $15,000 apiece for discrimination.
And, because this is 2019, many Twitter users were apt to throw biological women under the bus and side with Yaniv, even going after actor and comedian Rick Gervais for posting, “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 cock & balls or not?”
However, in a rare display of modern sanity, the British Human Rights Tribunal this week ruled against Yaniv’s demands, calling his complaint "disingenuous and self-serving" and instead forcing him to pay out $2,000 to three of the women he’d targeted.
And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. The National Review notes that:
In August, Yaniv was arrested for owning a taser, after brandishing it on camera during an interview about Yaniv’s alleged history of predatory behavior toward children. Screen-captured messages allegedly from Yaniv highlighted intimate questions to underage girls, and legal documents showed an attempt to organize a topless pool party for such girls.
Unfortunately, the court's decision comes a little too late for at least one of the beauticians, who has reportedly already been forced out of business thanks to Yaniv’s complaint.
