As previously covered by The Daily Wire, transgender LGBT activist Jessica Yaniv has filed a total of 16 complaints with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal against female estheticians who do not wish to wash Yaniv’s male genitalia. Yaniv claimed the women were discriminating based on “gender identity” and is seeking financial restitution. Earlier this week, one of the targeted women said she was forced to close her small business due to the complaint from Yaniv.
While conservatives, liberals, and even some feminists have called foul over Yaniv’s attempt to essentially force women into providing a service on his male private, a service the salons do not provide (male and female bikini waxing are not the same), the trans activist has been making the media rounds boasting about his activism.
On Tuesday, for example, Yaniv, joined Irish broadcaster Niall Boylan on “The Niall Boylan Show” to discuss the filed complaints. But after the host pressed the activist as to why the female estheticians’ rights are trumped by his, Yaniv abruptly ended the interview.
Showcasing the coercion from Yaniv, Boylan laid out an example about his disbelief in God.
“Now, you believe in God; I respect the fact that you believe in God. And I respect your point of view and I respect your belief and your faith in God. That doesn’t mean I have to believe in God. Do you understand the point?” he asked.
“I do,” answered Yaniv.
“Some people may respect you, and may respect that you want to be called Jessica, but they just don’t believe it,” the host said. “I’ll call him Jessica, I’ll respect that, but I don’t believe it and I don’t buy into it.”
“So what you’re essentially asking these women to do a service on you that they don’t believe in,” Boylan continued. They don’t want to handle a man’s genitalia. Is that fair?”
“I’m protected under the BC Human Rights Code —” Yaniv started.
“And those women are protected, and those women are protected who have a right to say no,” Boylan interjected.
“They don’t,” said Yaniv. “Because, essentially ….”
The host then asked Yaniv, “Why does your rights trump theirs?”
Yaniv said the Tribunal is “coming to a balancing act to see how rights play out in this whole thing.”
The host told Yaniv that this was his main concern: Yaniv should be free to live his life how he chooses, as should the female estheticians.
“Not when they discriminate against the rights of others,” Yaniv protested.
“They’ll argue that they’re not discriminating; they’re saying, ‘I’m sorry, we don’t supply a service … of the removal of hair from a genitalia that’s from a man,’” Boylan said. “And that’s what they’re saying; they’re using they shouldn’t be forced to do that.”
That was the end of the interview, as Yaniv was no longer on the line.
As reported by The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh on Monday, Yaniv has a suspect record regarding young girls and women. For example, the activist apparently invited girls as young as 12 to a pool party where parents and guardians were “not permitted.”
