yeesh. go, Canada.

A B.C. Human Rights Tribunal hearing devolved into repeated outbursts and name-calling this week as it considered a transgender woman’s complaint that a home-based salon discriminated against her by denying her a Brazilian wax.

At one point, the complainant compared the business owner to a neo-Nazi. The lawyer for the business owner accused the complainant of engaging in “half-truths and fabrications.” Tribunal adjudicator Devyn Cousineau frequently had to interject to maintain decorum and to keep the hearing from careening off course.

But a substantive question remained at the core of the raucous daylong hearing: should a business be allowed to deny service on the basis of gender identity?

So a guy wanted a Brazilian wax job? I would be grossed out and refuse to do it as well.

I read the rest of the article. The customer is an activist looking for a paycheck.

"However, business owner Marcia Da Silva said she was not comfortable carrying out a Brazilian wax on a person with male genitalia, nor did she have the training for it."

Imma gonna over share. Waxing a person with male bits is very different than waxing a person with female bits. But the safety business is pretty fishy. The ultimate question would have to be does she allow biological men who identify as such into her home? And does she wax them?

Maybe this woman doesn't usually serve male clientele alone in her home-based salon?

Just a guess.

Plus... a wax on a man is different than one on a woman.

I once had a male hairdresser who did some waxing services and he refused to do anything below the neck on a woman, but would do a full body wax on a man if the man asked. It was a liability thing, since this man worked alone in his salon.

So my guess is that this is going to be another type of business in which the owners and employees will be afraid of being sued.

Smooth move . . . NOT.
