We live in a world where people are increasingly being treated as crazy, bigoted or unscientific for refusing to go along with the insane idea that you change genders. Why even draw the line at gender? Why can’t you declare that you’re an Orca or a planet? It makes every bit as much sense, right?
It has even gotten so crazy that something like this can be taken seriously,
This week, the Canadian press erupted with a storm of stories about Jessica Yaniv. A transgender woman, Yaniv is suing fifteen female aestheticians – waxing services operators – for their refusal to wax her male genitalia.
Their refusal to give Yaniv a Brazilian bikini wax was enough for her to accuse them of “transphobia,” and file complaints against the lot of them at the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal.
Should the tribunal side with Yaniv, it will be, arguably, the first case of state-enforced sexual assault.
What’s being discussed here is whether it’s a human right for a man claiming to be a woman to force a woman to touch his penis during a procedure designed to be done on women.
Ten years ago, not only would people have not believed this possible, they’d have treated you like a crazy person for suggesting that we could go this far down the slope to crazy town at all. Like I always like to say, “Once you start catering to people’s pathologies, it seldom ends well or at a reasonable point.”
