A few months ago, Jessiva Yaniv, a Canadian trans woman, filed human rights complaints against several waxing and aesthetic salon workers after accusing them of transphobic discrimination for refusing to wax her balls.

The tribunal heard that staff refused to perform the pubic hair removal procedure after she revealed she had a full set of male genitalia. It turned out Yaniv filed complaints against multiple beauty salons – claiming the aestheticians’ refusal to wax her scrotum was discriminatory.

Luckily, she lost every one of her cases after the tribunal rejected her claims.

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.

It also found that Yaniv “engaged in improper conduct,” “filed complaints for improper purposes,” and concluded Yaniv’s testimony was “disingenuous and self-serving.”

Finally, Yaniv was “evasive and argumentative and contradicted herself” while giving evidence. She was subsequently forced to pay the workers over the case- which saw one forced out of business as a result of Yaniv’s claim.

She faced plenty of criticism and ridicule, particularly from Ricky Gervais who posted: “I was going to dress up as something weird and creepy for my Halloween party, but I’m bucking the trend this year and I’m going as brave female activist Jessica Yaniv.

“This also means I don’t have to wax my big old hairy balls.”

You thought that’d be the end of her, didn’t you?

Me too.

Well, I’m sorry to say, we were wrong.

She’s back with a fresh complaint and surprise surprise – she believes she’s being discriminated against again.

Full time victim this one.

She’s saying she was turned away by a gynaecologist’s office who told him they don’t offer medical services transgender clients.

I mean it’s literally insane. She has male genitalia – why would she need to see a gynaecologist?

The definition of which reads: “The branch of physiology and medicine which deals with the functions and diseases specific to women and girls, especially those affecting the reproductive system.”

Here’s what people had to say about it all:

I mean, what is going on with the world?

You have wonder whether Yaniv actually wants to see a gynaecologist or if she’s just looking for someone else to sue after her original court case went wrong.

She’s a professional troll.

Sad to say this probably isn’t the the last we’ve heard of her.
