According to GQ magazine, there are two types of “Bro-zilian” or Male Brazilian wax options:
“…completely smooth, or hairless on the testicles, between the butt cheeks, and surrounding bikini area while leaving more “natural” looking growth above. This may be due to the fact that, according to a survey done by Advanced Dermatology, 88% of men are influenced by what they see in pornography.”
This hair removal procedure requires extensive contact with the genitals of the male customer. More from GQ:
“Please be aware: getting a Bro-zillian means that an esthetician will very much be touching your penis and testicles, probably for an extended period of time and moving and holding your parts and pulling them taught and holding them down and much more. This is a non-negotiable.”
There are dozens of aestheticians in the female-dominated body waxing industry who service (or specialize in) providing intimate body waxing procedures to male clients in the Vancouver area. A quick google search will immediately provide access to this service.
But that isn’t how Canadian ‘TrustedNerd’ blogger Jonathan Yaniv looked for a service provider.
Instead, Yaniv searched Facebook, seeking out various working-class women who discussed performing waxing services on their own personal pages. He found a woman, Shelah Poyer, a single mother who performed waxing services in her own home for the women on her friend’s list. He messaged her out of the blue, requesting an intimate wax of his genitals in her private home. She responded, “Not for men, sorry”.
Jonathan Yaniv contacted her again. “I’m actually female,” he replied. “I transitioned a while ago”. She ignored him. He allegedly contacted her over and over again.
Next, Jonathan Yaniv searched online for information about the woman and located a spa which had used her services in the past. He contacted them, repeatedly, looking for her and demanding that she service his genitals, until the receptionist told him she would call the police if he called again. “He called the salon twice more in spite of the receptionist’s warning that if he called again, she would call the police.”
Shelah Poyer’s boyfriend then contacted Jonathan Yaniv on Facebook and warned him that the police would be involved if Yaniv continued to stalk and harass his girlfriend via the internet and at her employers.
From the National Post:
“Please stop harassing my gf or we will take further action (police) she explained to you what she does and does not do. Do not call her work again and don’t bother messaging me back. Get a life when someone says no move on.”
[Jonathan Yaniv] wrote back saying all [he] had done was inquire about a service that was advertised and asked what Poyer’s availability was.
“You did harass her over and over she didn’t respond and you call her work get a f—— life,” Paradis replied. “I’ll be posting about you on my own account. I have all the proof of harassment. “
Rather than desist in his behavior, Jonathan Yaniv avoided charges for harassment and stalking by using the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal to escalate his harassment and pursue his prey by using the tribunal as his official proxy.
He claimed that Shelah Poyer in her home, and also her (apparently now defunct) employer discriminated against his protected status under the British Columbia legal definition of ‘Gender Identity’. Her refusal to wax his ass, balls, and the area surrounding his penis discriminated against his rights as a male, on the grounds that recognizing his male sex infringed on his own “sense of himself” as female.
British Columbia defines ‘Gender Identity’ as “a person’s sense of themselves”. Specifically:
“Gender identity is a person’s sense of themselves as male, female, both, in between or neither. It includes people who identify as transgender. Gender identity may be different or the same as the sex a person is assigned at birth.”
British Columbia also considers “sex” a protected characteristic. Sex is defined somewhat incoherently as:
“Sex includes being a man, woman, inter-sexed or transgender. It also includes pregnancy, breast-feeding and sexual harassment.”
Can British Columbia protect a woman like Shelah Poyer from the sexual harassment of a man like Jonathan Yaniv who targets her specifically on the basis that she prefers not to handle male genitals for pay? Or does his declared “sense of himself as female” not only override her rights to protection from sexual harassment, but also subject her to prosecution from the state as an enforcement agent of Jonathan Taniv’s belief that his “sense of himself” requires women to touch his genitals against their will?
An early clue to the way this was likely to play out came when the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal upheld Jonathan Yaniv’s desire to press charges against Shelah Porter anonymously. There is no rational basis for this decision. Apparently Jonathan claimed a “right” to be closeted as a “transwoman”. Yet as seen in the screencaps on this page, Jonathan is “out” publicly as an individual who identifies as transgender. He uses the name “Jonathan (Jessica) Taniv” on his professional internet accounts, and refers to himself with female pronouns in his work bio.
As we saw recently in the public “outing” of alleged harasser British businessman Philip Green by members of the UK parliament who disregarded a legal injunction preventing him from being named: protecting the anonymity of men who allegedy sexually harass women is not an ethically defensible position.
Lucky for you, dear reader, GenderTrender is not a Canadian website and not subject to Canadian legal jurisdiction regarding protecting the anonymity of alleged sexual predators.
Not being Canadian, it isn’t illegal for me to notice that Jonathan (Jessica) Taniv used his business address to file his request to dismiss his complaint against Shelah Porter after the Libertarian legal group Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) offered to defend her pro-bono.
It has since come to light that Jonathan Yaniv has targeted a number of women in a similar way, having “filed a large number of complaints of a similar nature”.
At least sixteen women have been targeted by Yaniv specifically for declining contact with his penis and testicles, using the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal both as a mechanism of continual sexual harassment against the women and as a shield protecting him socially in doing so. With anonymity, crazy-ass Jonathan becomes an aggrieved discriminated-against transwoman, courtesy of the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. Women he seeks out to sexually stalk and harass, whose income he would like to destroy, are transformed by the British Colombia Human Rights Tribunal into transphobic oppressors.
One of the women targeted by Jonathan Yaniv for sexual harassment:
“Had approached, and had been turned down by 26 different lawyers and law firms. All of which cited lack of expertise in human rights proceedings, or fear of offending the transgender lobby, or both.“
These are the names of the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal members responsible for this situation:
- Barbara Korenkiewicz
- Beverly Froese
- Catherine McCreary
- Devyn Cousineau
- Emily Ohler
- Jacqueline Beltgens
- Norman Trerise
- Pamela Murray
- Paul Singh
- Steven Adamson
- Walter Rilkoff
Jonathan (Jennifer) Yaniv’s internet footprint, at a glance, does not represent a sympathetic person.
He started his public “career” as a 21-year-old university student trying to organize a Canadian national “Sex Day” whose motto was “Unzip and Unwind”.
Now 30, he apparently makes a few nickels representing himself as a Social Media “security expert” and an “Internet Entrepreneur”. Which mainly looks like helping people set up unironically 1990’s era websites via his ‘JY Knows IT Business Consulting’ enterprise (where he also serves as “a professional makeup artist”) and re-posting press releases for consumer technology marketers and sex-toy producers who send him free samples via his ‘TrustedNerd.com’ website.
Jonathan Yaniv runs multiple accounts where he posts hundreds of complaints against various businesses, over years, including aestheticians who refused to handle his balls, employees who don’t speak english, as well as one local restaurant who “hangs up” every time they hear his voice on the line.
You can hear Jonathan Yaniv’s voice in action here in one of his “unlisted” YouTube videos where he tries to take down an alleged Phishing campaign:
Jonathan Yaniv once accused the General Manager of a major hotel chain of trying to “blackmail” him into dropping a complaint. Here he launches a petition to ban Sears and Roebuck from operating a business in Canada: https://www.change.org/p/sears-canada-to-get-out-of-canada Seven people signed it!
Jonathan Yaniv has a twitter account with over a hundred thousand followers, none of whom ever interact with him. I’m told by internet savvy folk that these are “paid followers” that one can obtain from various firms to create the impression that one is influential beyond one’s means.
Like his other accounts, Jonathan Yaniv’s twitter prescence is devoted to reposting tech product PR, hundreds of his directed complaints against various service or product providers, and unanswered attempts to contact various female strangers whose internet content he follows keenly, particularly female sex-workers who work on FreeWebcam.com.
(He has an alternate account here: https://twitter.com/JonathanYaniv).
In May, June and July of 2018, a number of teenage girls took to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to expose Jonathan Yaniv as a sexual predator. The girls claimed that Yaniv “pretended to be transgender” in order to access private facebook groups for teenage girls where he spewed his creepy sexual fetishes about young women, menstruation, toilet and locker room fantasies. The teens posted screen caps of private messages he sent them including (but not limited to) the following:
The girls also showed that a man sexually harassed many female teens on Twitter by using the askFM feature and the phone number used traced back to Jonathan Yaniv.
When the lawyers at JCCF announced their intention to introduce this as evidence in Shelah Poyer’s case, complainant Jonathan Yaniv, self-proclaimed social media security expert, claimed his Facebook account had been hacked, and withdrew his complaint against Poyer to prevent the disclosure from coming to light. No explanation was offered for the AskFM abuse.
At least 15 cases, prosecuted by the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal, against women who don’t want to touch Jonathan Yaniv’s dick and balls, remain.
