If I were a trans activist, I would be very seriously considering the conspiracy theory that Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv was recruited, trained, and unleashed on Canadian women by the Religious Right.
After all, those warning about the inevitable consequences of embracing gender fluidity and the cultural acceptance of self-identification — both radical feminists and social conservatives — could not have invented a better example of their premises in action than Yaniv.
Jonathan Yaniv, who unconvincingly identifies as female and refers to himself as Jessica, has been rampaging about British Columbia for several years now, barging his way into various female-only establishments and then demanding that he — and in the case of the waxing salons, his genitals — get serviced. As a woman, you see. Which he is. Because he says so. Which, under Canadian law, means he is. Don’t laugh — it might not be legal.
