This is what happens when one automatically assumed the worst of others.

Maybe the business owner just didn't know how to.. She has to make it a discrimination issue.

Maybe this is how professional protesters make a living. Well, no one on this earth can please a person who has a chip on his/her shoulder.

This creep sounds like those perverts that get their sexual kicks from pretending they are the opposite sex, to unwitting victims - this person is trying to make the law enforce indecent exposure.

I read the rest of the article. The customer is an activist looking for a paycheck.
and pretty gross at that. At least if nothing else we now have our Friday afternoon smile to carry us through.

You think this is the ultimate test ? I dunno about that. Let's see if someone else takes this even further.
I think it already has been taken further, with the Olympics putting aside the notion of fairness to real female athletes, by allowing transgendered to compete against them - fairness has officially been relegated behind self identity.

Within 10 years "female" sports will be all male born "females".

That is quite a realistic scenario, and one I suspect will eventually be returned to the traditional status quo - it's early days of trans acceptance, and administrators have let their guard down on fairness, but I think the notion of fairness will ultimately prevail.

Dear Lord....It seems like a penis will soon have it's day in court.
What is there to not understand. Brazilian Wax are for Vaginas!
I have no problem with people until they create problems.
If this guy would have shown up at my home he and his family jewels
would have been promptly and swiftly removed from said premises.
Sounds like an opportunity to learn.

PAINFULLY on the requestor.

#fake concern, "Oh did that hurt?"

Should have used a weed walker on him/her/whatever it is identifying as this week. Eliminate hair and that pesky weiner. Just saved taxpayers a lot of bucks for the surgery.

As a man myself, I would be concerned about waxing the ********.

I think that yanking the hairs out from a ******* would be very painful.

I should not care but for some reason thinking about asking for a rear end wax then tacking on the strip for extra always illicits a juvenile chuckle. They also list the men's front bits in a similarly couched but obvious manner- so you could clear the fields but still pay extra to trim the trees... I have also learned that to strip the tree if you will, it is preferred the male is semi-excited about the activity...


And yes, I am currently snickering behind my keyboard and showing why I would have no business working in said establishment.

So in the waxer's defense, she really would need to know/charge according to what body parts she was addressing.
The bolded is the actual issue.

And, if a person is running an at-home salon and is the only person providing services, how will they manage this sort of interaction if they're not comfortable with this level of nudity?

This isn't the same thing as putting frosting on a wedding cake.

If someone was refusing to cut a trans person's hair because they were trans, I'd say that was transphobia. But, not wanting to wax a person's genitals because you are a cisgender female who is not comfortable handling the genitals of people who are outwardly male vis a vis their genitals is just NOT any sort of clear case of transphobia.

That would be more like "I won't wax you now that you have had surgery and you have now have a vagina because you USED TO have a penis."

The person who started this is a troublemaker.
