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

July 22, 2019

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.

Marcia Da Silva received a response about the opening of her new salon from Jessica Yaniv, a transgender activist, after previously only have provided services to family and friends. They initially agreed to an appointment via text message and Yaniv claimed that Da Silva canceled the session after she sent her a photo and identified as a transgender woman.

Yaniv filed over a dozen complaints with a British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal, claiming she was discriminated against. “You cannot choose who your clientele is going to be,” Yaniv said while speaking in front of the Tribunal. The LGBT activist has demanded monetary compensation and condemned Da Silva’s decision not to wax her genitalia as neo-Nazism.

“This is about businesses and individuals using their religion and culture to refuse service to protected groups because -they- don’t agree with it,” Yaniv said in a tweet.

This is not about waxing. This is 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.

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.”

Yaniv has said on Twitter that she will “never give up fighting for human rights equality”.

One proud lesbian. I’ll never give up fighting for human rights equality.

A person who was born as a biological male and identifies as a female has just won a women’s world championship cycling event

Rachel McKinnon, who was born as a biological male and identifies as a female, has just won the women’s 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.

As far as I know, this is the first time that a transgender person has even won a world championship in any athletic sport.

The other thing that makes this incident particularly interesting is that McKinnon believes that men who identity as women should not be required to take testosterone suppressing hormones (let alone have gender reassignment surgery) in order to participate in women’s athletic competitions.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: this is unfair to female athletes who were born as biological women.

On the other hand, for left wing feminists who claim that gender is a social construct and not a biological one, there is no legitimate reason to complain that this is unfair. They got exactly what they wanted.

Male high school track runner climbs all the way from last place to first place simply by claiming to be a girl

At Cromwell High School in Connecticut, a male track runner has climbed all the way from last place to first place simply by claiming to be a girl.

In this particular case, the person in question has not even taken any gender altering hormones, and has not had sexual reassignment surgery. Instead, the person merely claimed to be a girl – and presto – they moved up all the way from last place to first place.

Radical left wing feminists have no right to complain that this is “unfair,” because it is they themselves who created this situation.

As time goes on, more and more “female” sports will come to be dominated by people who were born with a penis and have XY chromosomes, but who simply claim to be female. They won’t even have to take the hormones or have the surgery. They just have to say that they are female. Quite a racket that they have started for themselves.

By comparison, men’s sports will never have to worry about this. I guess the radical left wing feminists will probably end up referring to this as “male privilege,” even though it was the radical left wing feminists themselves who created this “unfair” situation in the first place.
