Can’t Take No For An Answer: Jonathan Yaniv files 16 Human Rights complaints against women who don’t want to wax his balls

He wants you to wax his balls. Or else.

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.

Jonathan Yaniv professional bio: female pronouns

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:


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 ‘’ website.

Excerpt of ‘’ Review

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.
Public complaints

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: Seven people signed it!
Blah blah blah

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

Poor service

(He has an alternate account here:

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.
Ask FM fuckery. Female minor.

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.

  1. Thanks for this good work exposing a sexual predator and pedophile who is using a trans identity to coerce women into non consensual sexual contact. It is hard for me to believe that he is being supported in his lawsuits by B. C. Human Rights Tribunal. They should all go to jail for this as it certainly makes the tribunal look like an organization that is strongly in favor of and organized to force sexual assault on women and girls who have made it clear they do not want to be involved in his creepy sexual fetishes

      1. Super great work here, Gallus. Thank you for your wit and bravery.
        This guy is really awful – not that there is a low bar in this category.

  2. There’s no such thing as a Pentium 486. The whole point of the “Five” in PENTium was that it was the 586 series and they couldn’t trademark a number so they came up with a name they could.
    Learn how to geek, bro, and leave women the fuck alone.
    Fantastic reporting Gallus. It’s amazing that you can sue from the closet when you’re splashing your kink all over the internet and real life.

  3. How many women did he frighten into touching his genitals with the threat of a lawsuit? I bet: not zero. I hope some approach the JCCF for help in bringing civil charges if criminal charges are not possible.

    1. And he’ll have filmed those incidents with his creepy camera glasses, I’m sure, as well as times he’s asked random girls for pads in the bathroom.

  4. The business address listed on the JYknowsit! site, and the address that comes up when you search his name is 170 – 422 Richards St. Interestingly enough, this is the same address, including suite number, that the Morgane Oger Foundation has listed on their site. Dying to know what the connection is there, other than the frequent abuse of the BC Human Rights tribunal and the online threats/extortion. Oh and the blatant disdain and hatred for women, of course. Very interesting…

    1. It is a mail box leasing company, similar to getting a PO box or mailbox at Fedex/UPS. These companies create a “virtual office”. There is nothing there.

      422 Richards St. seems to be one of those networking hub type places, where you can rent a meeting room by the hour. I wouldn’t be surprised if they also have mailbox rentals, too.
      Obviously the word is out – among a certain type of person – about that useful address. It is right downtown in Vancouver.

    3. It looks like it’s either a working space (where self-employed people can have a workspace away from home), or a space with P.O. boxes, or both, because there are many disparate businesses in Vancouver using that address according to Google.

    4. Whoa! That is a very, very good link you’ve made “prozac.” I thought Mr. Ogre was bad – this guy seems to be just as bad. Is there a “trend?”

    Thank you!!!!
    (please feel free to erase my mistaken response to the other commenter, it was meant for you)

  6. This has been kicking around and now you bring the sauce! Thank you Gallus!
    This guy is so creepy and it just keeps getting worse.

      1. So transmen beating the crap out of real women in track, boxing and other sports is not a thing?
        Maybe you’re not talking about the same thing at all, as I admit I can’t keep it straight which thing turns into what and what you call it.

  7. Your hard work is always admired and appreciated Gallus. Thank you.
    Off to scrub my brain now.

  8. Thank you, Gallus. I hope that the 15 other women being harassed by this creep see your article and put it to good use.

  9. Great reporting, well done for exposing this obsessive complainer and dangerous paedophile.
    He is creepily obsessed with using female hygiene products. Especially when used by 10-12 year old girls. He seems to think that women and girls spend their time in public toilets “bonding” by chatting with strangers about menstrual hygiene. In my 14 years of menstruating I have NEVER asked a stranger in a public loo for a tampon/pad, and have NEVER seen it happen. I’ve never talked with strangers about periods in public toilets either, or witnessed such conversation. Of course it does happen, but such instances are rare.
    The part where he wants to go into a toilet cubicle to “help” a little girl use a tampon for the first time is unbelievably perverted, and shows zero empathy for how frightening and painful first tampon use can be.

  10. This is amazing work. Thank heaven for Gallus and GenderTrender and thank heaven that both are outside the clutches of Canada and its Orwellian “human rights” apparatus.
    Is there even 1 transgender-identified male who isn’t a creepy loon?

    1. Nope. Once you realize that most trans became AGPs because of porn you understand why so many are perverts. Porn addiction. You have to keep pushing the envelope to get the same ‘high.’

  11. It appears to be a co-working space, that Oger also uses. I would be willing to bet money that Oger knows all about this and gave JY a high five.

  12. What an incredible creep but honestly, I’m laughing so hard because you really got this guy. I mean can he really get away with any of this anymore? Can this stuff be used by the lawyers of defendants in court? I’m so proud of you women(woman?) – whomever did this wonderfully thorough article. Thank you so, so much.

    1. At least one of them used it and he dropped the case. Problem is he deliberately targets sole proprietors. Women working out of their homes and the like. These women don’t have the resources to hire attorneys even if they could find one to take the case.

      1. I hear that and I understand – hopefully this will get around widely enough for those women to see it and use it themselves.

  13. I love that he’s wearing Google glass in both! his profile photos. Those things were only used by the douchebaggiest of the douchebags before Google finally pulled them, and the vast majority of tech “influencers” who got their grubby mitts on them had non-existent qualifications or credibility. I wonder if his fake Twitter followers played a role in Google giving him a pair.
    I’m beyond peak trans at this point. I’m now firmly peak tech, peak douchebag, peak male, peak social media, peak everything. I was always peak pervert and peak pedophile though.

    1. Throw in comic book culture and nerd culture. I am so peak male culture period. They pervert and defile every damn thing. I have act like the goddamn Gestapo to protect my son from this shit. There’s not a kid’s cartoon out there that someone hadn’t turned perverted and pedophilic. And no matter how many filters you use it still gets through. The latest one I saw was Paw Patrol. Fucking Paw Patrol?!? They’re puppies for fucks sake.

      1. I have to admit I’m glad I don’t have kids. Although, if I did, I’d be far more worried about how kids use the internet and smartphones to harass each other, especially boys harassing girls.
        Even before I knew how predatory men can be, I intrinsically knew to avoid adult men. Boys my own age had far more opportunity and ability to crush my self-worth.
        But that’s also another way that trans harms girls. Thanks to “gender identity” girls can’t escape boys even in their own spaces.

  14. Thank you Gallus for doing what the mainstream media could do but refuses to do — protect women by finding the truth out about this abuser. Sending you a Paypal thank you, too — wish it could be more!

  15. Revolting. That tampon story is so damn gross! Asking if he should go into the stall with the girl? God no. You can tell this pervert is looking for an excuse to be a predator in the bathroom without being called out on it, typical child grooming behavior. I bet this sick fuck has CP on his computer.
    Let’s just think about this logically for a second. What are the chances a random child would just so “happen” to suddenly hit their period and need a tampon at the same time this sick fuck is in the bathroom? Does he think that period emergencies are a common occurrence, one that he would run into every time he uses the women’s restroom? Does he really believe that he will run into children having period emergencies, and that they would ask for his assistance?
    No. They don’t happen that often, and even when they do happen, girls and women are private about it. They quietly freak out in the stall and try to fix the situation. Maybe they will ask another girl/woman for a pad if they are desperate enough, but even then, it’s a quick and private thing. I had to give another woman a pad twice in my life, and both times I simply handed them a pad under the stall door and then I left! I did not talk to them, I didn’t stick around to see if they were okay, I didn’t see if they needed instructions.
    Keep in mind, these women were in the same age group as me. I cannot imagine a kid asking an adult for help, especially a MAN.
    Next, take note how he talks about seeing tampon strings hanging out of women’s vaginas, and if it would “be weird” to ask a girl for a tampon. First off, how would this man see a tampon string hanging out of another woman/child? Does he think that women show their privates outside the stalls? No! I have NEVER seen this because this NEVER HAPPENS. Women do not step outside the stall until their clothes are on. So the only way this SICK FUCK would be able to see tampon strings hanging out is if he were spying on them in the stall.
    But, let’s just say that you did ask a girl for a tampon and she gave you one (Probably just to get you to leave her the hell alone), you wouldn’t stand there and “bond” with her over it. Again, these situations are private and quick. She would hand to you, you would thank her, and LEAVE.
    Then, the grossest part of that conversation is him asking if he should tell a girl how to use a tampon. Again, NO ONE asks this. Never has a random stranger asked me for instructions on how to use a tampon. But, let’s just say a kid did come up to me and ask. I would say “Sorry, I can’t help you. Is your mother around?” If the mother wasn’t around, I would just say sorry and LEAVE. No woman would ever feel comfortable telling a child they don’t know how to use a tampon.
    Then he asks if he should go into the stall to “help” her with the tampon…. EWW! NO! No woman would feel comfortable verbally telling an unknown child how to use a tampon, much less teaching her in a private stall! That’s just creepy and wrong, and everyone knows this, regardless of your gender. I don’t care if a child was crying and begging for help, no woman would GO INTO THE STALL WITH THEM AND TEACH THEM.
    Fuck, this whole thing makes me angry, but those chat transcripts make me feel rage. This sick fuck probably hangs out in bathrooms leering at girls and being a creep, asking for pads and tampons and then spying on them through the stall doors. Fuck Canada’s backwards laws, this guy does not need to be protected, he needs to be on a sex offender list.

    1. And what 10 year old girl, who has just started her period, would choose to use a tampon vs a pad ? Or ask for help from a hulking Ted Cruz look alike, lurking in a public washroom, for assistance ? If a 10 year old had a family that had taught her about her body and how it works, and was taught about tampons vs pads, she would certainly know where and how to put one. This tampon fantasy is boner thinking.
      I worked as a phone sex operator decades ago. There was one caller, in Vancouver, who would torture the operators with his fantasy topic: women’s menstrual products. Like this dude would endlessly quiz about product preferences, brand names, whatever.
      Male fetishistic behaviour can and will warp any aspect of female existence into their jerk off fodder.
      This dude would have previously been an obscene phone caller.
      He has been able to manipulate his humiliation and control fantasies about abusing women, which combine both his domination and pseudo masochism (ie hot wax on his genitals, applied by a woman) into a “human rights” issue about his hurt feelings and discrimination.
      His feelings AREN’T hurt – they are delighted at creating this chaos, getting to play the saddest victim ever, frightening multiple women with his extortion attempt.
      He may as well sue tampon manufacturers for having such discriminatory products that do not take his transwomen periods and anatomy into their product design.
      It is obscene that his identity had been concealed in the legal documents.
      I am so glad that you have exposed this NOT woman, Gallus.

      1. “Or ask for help from a hulking Ted Cruz look alike, lurking in a public washroom, for assistance ? “
        Ted Cruz is indeed a weird-looking guy but he doesn’t want perverts in women’s washrooms any more than you do.

      2. Replying to Exurban, not myself:
        I don’t think Ted Cruz has any girl’s or women’s interests in his political agenda, except for the ones that are dictated by his religious beliefs, and/or conceptualizes harm to women as damaging men’s property.
        Even if this creeper was an exceptionally attractive individual – but one who made no efforts to appear female except for a halter top and some lipstick as per his selfie – I don’t think a 10 year old girl would ask this person for help with a menstrual crisis. Remembering my 10 year old self I would have been utterly mortified to speak to a girl in the grade ahead of me for help with something so intensely personal. I would have also been traumatized asking a friend’s mother, or a grandmotherly looking stranger. Even if this creeper was an exceptionally passable individual – no 10 year old girl is realistically going to enter this scenario.
        The only one who would is a similar disgusting man pretending to be a girl on the internet, exchanging horrifying fantasies with like minded others.

  16. Jonathan Yaniv’s conduct is harrassment and stalking. The Canadian police should prosecute him using whatever “internet harrassment” and “cyberstalking” laws are available in Canada (in the UK:…/stalking-and-harassment. Maximum penalty: five years in jail). I hope that the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is compiling a file to hand to the Canadian prosecuting services. And his Twitter and other accounts should be closed down of course.

  17. “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 allegedly sexually harass women is not an ethically defensible position.”
    FWIW this wasn’t the conclusion most people drew at all. Peter Hain, the politician who “outed” Green, was widely criticized for his actions, especially as it was only a temporary injunction and there was an ongoing legal case to decide whether it should be lifted.
    In particular, it was pointed out that anonymity often serves to protect the interests of the victim as much as the [alleged] perpetrator.

    1. Anonymity certainly can be invoked to protect victims of crimes. I’m not clear how you think allowing Philip Green to arguably abuse the system to protect him from allegations is a good example of this. It certainly doesn’t protect the victims of Jonathan Yaniv.
      Canada also has Parliamentary Privilege. Hopefully one of the Canadian MPs will address Jonathan Yaniv’s campaign from the floor of the Canadian Parliament so that Canadian news outlets can begin to examine the specifics of the case.

  18. He looks like Ted Cruz. 😳 And then manages to be so much worse. 🤮
    May this be the moment the BC, and all the human rights tribunals in Canada, learn there is the new kind of vexatious litigant/deranged nutbag. They need to be able to spot them, and they need to ban them from making complaints.
    If you’re on Twitter, block him.

  19. Congratulations on your scoop Gallus, investigative journalism is not dead!
    Is there any way Yaniv could be dobbed into Canadian police. He’s obviously a pedophile. His desire to see young girls wearing tampons is frightening!

  20. WOW! Just when I think you can’t top yourself you produce this! Fantastic job.
    Everyone who can should donate to GM today! I’m often about to, will get around to it, etc – but this article pushed me to finally go find my purse and get it done.
    I encourage everyone to support her work, if you can. So many radfem blogs have come and gone, but GM remains steadfast and consistently produces top notch work.
    RE the topic at hand – what a cretin this man is! I especially love that you list and link to all the members of the Human Rights Tribunal members.
    Goddess bless, GM!

  21. I find the replies from the person to him disturbing. You really tell a man that he should help a girl with her tampons? I’m hoping they were just leading him along to see what he’d say. If not they really need to reread those messages to see it’s clearly just a twisted fantasy he’s living.

  22. He has a cess pit for a mind and the arogance to spew out all that sewage on social media. It stinks. Well done Gallus for exposing this perverted pattern of behaviour. Why on earth was he given anonymity in the first place?

      1. Yeah, I am stomach-turningly disturbed by the links in there where he’s saying why he wears pads and needs to use the girl’s bathroom. TO CHILDREN. I can not believe no parents have whupped his ass. I would seriously consider trying to contact someone over that if they were more recent. so disgusted. He does everything but plug a neon light into his ass saying ‘I AM GOING TO RAPE FEMALE CHILDREN’.

      2. When harassing little girls about their bathroom habits, he says he wears pads to soak up excess sweat. Nowadays, he refers to his “period”. He thinks his sweaty nutsack is a period.

    1. Jesus fucking Christ, this goes back years and years. This guy needs to be on a sex offender registry. I hope he’s reported and all of his extortion lawsuits are thrown out.

      1. Wow – just when it seemed that there was nothing lower in this guy’s history, this is revealed.

  23. Thanks for giving this exposure and showing who this disgusting pos is. I’m appalled at the BC Human Rights Tribunal and also at all the lawyers who are fucking running scared from these TRA/MRAs. Of course BC is a huge hotbed for all things trans.
    Keep up the good work GallusMag, we need you.

  24. Anyone else copying and pasting Gallus’s article and the archive link of this nasty little shit anywhere & everywhere they can find him?
    Please know, this man is disgusting.
    I find it most effective to reply to his most recent comments.

    1. I’m just over the border. 🐱
      I keep wondering if the horrible driving exhibited from BC drivers over here is partly explained by use of google glasses. /s

  25. Thank you for this extremely important article and all the digging you’ve done around this guy. You deserve an award. Seriously.

  26. GM, you’ve done outstanding work here, thank you so much! This dude is clearly a pedophile and needs to be investigated. Maybe the places he’s sued can band together and sue him for harassment?

  27. “…when someone says no move on.”
    The antithesis of creepy, predatory men in general, and M2Ts specifically.

  28. Just when you think it can’t get any more insane….
    If there’s a silver lining to be found here, it’s that stories like this could push “peak-trans” over the top and wake up the general public. For that to work though, the MSM needs to get some balls (sorry) and do their jobs by putting it our there. The trouble is, so many have been brainwashed, gas-lighted and cowed into thinking up is down, red is green, male is female and they’re petrified of offending anyone or being thought a bigot.

  29. Massachusetts had a similar complaint from a man who sued a salon for refusing to provide a brazilian wax. Even in spite of cases like this, the clueless populace of MA passed question 3, which allows men to sue women for not wishing to wax their genitals. Insanity!

  30. This is the end result of the ludicrous notion that gender identity is the same as sex. Creepy perverted guys with some weird fetish (age play fetish, BDSM, diaper fetish, etc.) will abuse these laws. Canada’s own Stefonknee Wolscht is just a middle aged man with an age play fetish. It’s not like he denies it.
    Yaniv’s fascination with little girls and tampons is creepy as heck. He shouldn’t be anywhere near girls.
    “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.”
    @ Gallus, “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.”
    I’m sure the pervert gets off on this. He probably could wax his own testicles, or get someone to do it.
    If the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal thinks that females are guilty of a human rights abuse by refusing to wax a male’s testicles, they disgrace and insult every victim of an actual human rights abuse. The only people who are the true victims are all the women harassed by Yaniv.
    This creep wants $2,500 and an apology because women don’t want to touch his penis and testicles. It doesn’t matter if the women have no expertise in waxing male testicles. It doesn’t matter if they feel embarrassed. This creep is the victim.
    I can’t think of a bigger farce and insult to actual human rights victims than this disgusting man. People are tortured and killed because of their religion. Some people suffer extreme physical abuse. Women are raped, or sold into sex trafficking. None of this is as bad as a creepy, perverted man who can’t find a woman to wax his testicles.
    This makes me sick to my stomach. The only victims are the women he harassed.

  31. “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.”
    “Sex includes being a man, woman, inter-sexed or transgender. It also includes pregnancy, breast-feeding and sexual harassment.”
    The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal doesn’t even believe the female sex exists. This is the problem. “Human rights” means male rights.

  32. Fantastic sleuthing, Gallus Mag! Mumsnet has linked to your post so it’s getting exposure in the U.K.:
    A restaurant hangs up every time they hear Yaniv’s voice? I can’t imagine why. And he’s such a tech wizard but couldn’t protect his own Facebook account from hacking? “Someone hacked my account” seems to have become the creep’s version of “The dog ate my homework” or “The check’s in the mail.”
    What enrages me is not that there are pervy guys like Yaniv, but that authorities are coercing some of the most vulnerable women into catering to their fetishes. In the U.S., U.K., and Canada, female prisoners are being locked up with dangerous male offenders who claim to be women and sometimes assaulted by those men. In this case, the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal was willing to collude in Yaniv’s shakedown of women who wanted to earn a living without having to touch a man”s genitals–doesn’t seem too much to ask, does it? There’s the Christopher Hambrook case, and just this summer, a woman who’d begun using drugs to cope with the trauma of sexual assault was thrown out of a Toronto shelter for recovering female addicts because she refused to room with a man–and when she called the Human Rights Legal Support Centre, she was informed she was the one discriminating for calling him male! Something has gone very wrong north of the border.
    Here in the U.S., nine women have sued Poverello House in Fresno, CA, for allowing a TIM to sexually harass them at a shelter for homeless women. (
    “Women staying at the shelter must shower each day, the lawsuit says. Although they shower separately in individual stalls, the women must dress and undress in a common area and place their possessions in crates before and after each shower.
    “It was during these moments, the lawsuit says, when the transgender woman began making lewd comments to the women, specifically saying things about their breasts and other body features as the group was nude. Some of the women also caught her looking at them through cracks in the shower stalls and while they used the restroom.
    “The lawsuit claims the alleged harasser showed some of the women nude pictures and videos, including media that showed the transgender woman masturbating.”
    Women who complained were told they needed to be more accepting of the transgender community. Other articles I’ve read on the case mention that women who objected to showering at the same time as this guy were threatened with removal from the shelter, and one woman said she thought shelter employees permitted the guy’s behavior because they were afraid of losing federal grants. If so, the shelter effectively forced these women who needed a place to stay to strip naked while a pervy guy watched so the shelter could maintain its own income–which borders on pimping.
    And the blue-haired wonders going on about their special non-binary, a-spec identities actually seem to believe they’re less privileged than women trying to find shelter or make a living without being prostituted to some man’s fetish.

    1. “…“Someone hacked my account” seems to have become the creep’s version of “The dog ate my homework” ..”
      Unfortunately for Jonathan, one of the teens who alleges he sexually harassed her has posted phone logs emanating from his phone number (seen in one of the links posted above in the thread). Maybe the dog ate his phone too.

      1. He could claim the dog both hacked his account and used his phone to harass underage girls, like the guy who tried to blame the cat for downloading child pornography to his computer.

    2. You’re right, Oak & Ash. Something has gone very wrong in Canada.
      From Ryerson’s gym website:
      “In keeping with Ryerson’s broader efforts to create safe and accessible washroom spaces for trans and gender diverse members of our community, we respect everyone’s right to choose the change space and washroom that is appropriate for them.”
      “Security support
      Ryerson Security and Emergency Services is here to support the entire community and understands that when a complaint is being made about someone in the “wrong” washroom, it’s often the person being reported who needs protection.”
      There used to be a campus security “police blotter” of all recent incidents posted in a common area of the athletic centre. Intrusions by pervy males into women’s washrooms and locker rooms was a semi-regular occurrence. It seems the Security staff have been re-educated and, as with the women’s shelter, the victims are now the criminals. Oh and, that blotter hasn’t been posted in ages.

      1. TET – You left out the best part:
        “You will also see signage around all washrooms indicating the space is inclusive and that Ryerson respects everyone’s right to choose the washroom that is appropriate for them.”
        Bathroom signage used to consist of one word – MEN or WOMEN. But when your goal is to placate mental illness, when your goal is to feed a delusion which can never be sated, then signage cannot be that simple. So bathrooms at Ryerson now apparently consist of 2 paragraphs, 5 sentences, a footnote and a web link.
        “This is a women’s washroom. Everyone who identifies as a woman and/or trans* person may use this space.
        At Ryerson, we respect everyone’s right to choose the washroom appropriate for them. For more information, visit”
        There is a footnote at the asterisk, presumably providing a further definition of “trans*” but the text is so small, I cannot read it. It is interesting that the sign does not say that the washroom is available to everyone who identifies as a woman. It says “everyone who identifies as a woman and/or trans*” Which means that trans people can go where ever they want, regardless of what they actually are or how they identify. You can have a “transman” who will sue at the drop of a hat if you don’t use he/him pronouns, but that same person can waltz into the women’s restroom and there is no problem. This is discrimination based on “gender identity” – imposing restrictions on “cis” people which are not imposed on trans people. Someone should make trouble and sue.

  33. I really hate giving out my email but I wanted to suggest to someone, anyone, two things that might help: (I’m not sure if these suggestions are ok, but at least I know the blog owner can see them!) I trust this blog but I do not trust wordpress for a fewreasons; their security practises are often kinda lackadaisical.
    1. Take an ad out wherever these women advertise to let them know that law firm is willing to represent them pro-bono – like all of the facebook salon ads or wherever he found his exortion victims from and
    2. This one I think is really important. I will be doing it as well. Reach out to the Victoria BC Ferry and let them know a pedo predator is actively planning to find victims on their service, so they can have his picture and name, just in case. It hurts me to think of this guy even gettting his hands on one little girl when it maybe could be prevented by a very alert ferry staff.
    Please join me in this if you can, and be polite, don’t say this person is a pedo, (for legal reasons) just that they have stated their desire to interfere with very young girls and watches and thinks about young girls on the ferry. Send every screenshot, please!
    If just one person does this it looks like a crank but if they get ten complaints it could make a real difference and we could stop a young girl’s life from being ruined by this man.
