“Are those women not protected?”
JULY 23, 2019
The transgender activist who demanded female beauticians shave male genitalia hung up when challenged during a radio interview.
As we highlighted yesterday, Jessica Yaniv, who was born a man, has filed complaints with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal against fifteen female aestheticians for their refusal to wax her male genitalia.
Having previously made predatory comments about women and girls in female changing rooms, Yaniv is also attempting to organize a topless swimming session for girls as young as 12 which parents will not be allowed to attend.
During an appearance on a radio show, Irish host Niall Boylan challenged Yaniv on why her rights as a trans person trumped those of women who do not wish to be exposed to or touch male genitalia.
Boylan made the point that Yaniv believing herself to be a woman despite being born a man was not a belief that other people should be forced to hold.
“I don’t believe in God, I’m an atheist, you believe in God, I respect the fact that you believe in God and I respect your point of view and I respect your faith in God, that doesn’t mean I have to believe in God,” said Boylan.
The host charged that Yaniv was demanding women perform a service (shaving male genitalia) that they don’t believe in.
“They don’t want to handle a man’s genitalia,” said Boylan.
Yaniv argued that he was part of a protected class, to which Boylan responded, “Are those women not protected who have a right to say no?”
“Those women should also be allowed to live their lives the way they wanna live their lives,” said Boylan, to which Yaniv responded, “But not when they discriminate against the rights of others.”
Boylan argued that it wasn’t discrimination to not supply a service that includes waxing male genitalia.
Yaniv then hung up and the conversation was ended.
“Just hung up on an offensive radio interview in Ireland,” Yaniv later tweeted. “Don’t tell me that I don’t have anything when you don’t know. Jesus.”
“You started arguing with me about things you know nothing about,” Yaniv added. “So let me put it to you this way…I’m female. Im a woman. Im not a man. Im as such entitled to EVERY service a female is entitled to and any such refusal is a violation of the BCHRC and CHRC.”
