The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) has announced that the “human rights” case brought against a number of estheticians by transgender activist Jessica Yaniv has ended with the court ruling in favor of the estheticians.
The JCCF represented over ten estheticians that Yaniv had brought complaints against. They noted that their victory entails that a service provider, like any other situation involving genitals, must first provide consent, which Yaniv did not have:
The decision noted, “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.” The decision further found that the complainant Jessica Yaniv “engaged in improper conduct”, “filed complaints for improper purposes”, and concluded Yaniv’s testimony was “disingenuous and self-serving.” Finally, noted the Tribunal, Yaniv was “evasive and argumentative and contradicted herself” while giving evidence.
What’s more, Yaniv has been ordered by the court to pay $2,000 each to three of the five estheticians he went after.
Yaniv attempted to use the argument that these estheticians, all immigrants, were using their religion to discriminate against him. However, the JCCF stated that no woman should be forced to touch a man’s genitals, and the courts seemed to agree.
“Self-identification does not erase physiological reality,” stated Jay Cameron, the Justice Centre’s Litigation Manager, and counsel for the estheticians. “Our clients do not offer the service requested. No woman should be compelled to touch male genitals against her will, irrespective of how the owner of the genitals identifies.”
Yaniv was previously in the headlines for other bizarre behavior. Before this court case, he was attempting to organize a “topless” event for children where parents were not allowed.
