Since the old one reached 100 pages.

What's the Yaniv thing he's going on about? I've missed all of that and suspect I won't get an unbiased explanation from his Twitter page.

This is my cursory understanding: a trans woman has taken several beauty parlours to court for refusing to wax her penis. Apparently Yaniv has a dodgy background in trying to access young women, which is exactly the line the TERF kru push.

i like this tweet where he's almost on the brink of understanding that he's an egotistical white knight fighting things he doesn't understand, but then of course he doesn't

Yeah based on her profile she seems to be just as terfy as Graham, so this looks like a typical infighting thing. Hopefully everyone in that whole sphere just turns on each other until the whole thing collapses into a stinking little puddle of irrelevance.

It's interesting to see the rad-shite infighting. There's a bit of it going about just now. I suspect everyone will have been called a misogynist and a traitor to women by the end of it all.

Grim. Cheers. Is penis waxing a thing?!

The whole thing is very murky and I'll probably understand it wrong so if I do please slide yourself carefully down my throat instead of jumping. Radfems say that Yaniv is basically trying to get her dick touched and dupe women in parlours into doing it, that Brazilian waxes are meant to be a vagina waxing, etc. Yaniv and some backers say that beauty parlours are refusing her because she hasn't been 'gender-affirmed' even though she is a woman as she identifies as one. Crucially, Yaniv's dodgy past (I haven't dug into it, my algorithms can only handle so much) has led to not much of a defence from players on her side of the argument (though Pink News have taken up the argument) thus leading to Linehan to claim a win (his current Twitter bio: "we told you about Mermaids & Yaniv and you called us bigots").

Remember when we had a a megathread to document instances of Ricky Gervais being a cunt? And now we have one for Glinner being transphobic. How times change.

Does sound like Yaniv is a bad faith actor tbh, or at least that's my read based on what's out there. Glinner will continue to pretend that this case proves what all 'trans activists' are like because he's a bigot who loves and lives for this shit

Yeah sounds well dodgy tbf but absolutely no different to your islamophobes spunking themselves off about that burka'd woman in Walthamstow being homophobic at the Pride march NOW WHO'S SIDE ARE YOU ON LIBS SEE WE TOLD YOU.

How do you even wax a testicle surely the whole area is too elastic.

You could be a lezzer and get your fanny waxed in bad faith as well, I assume.
Not sure of my point but I think it stands regardless.

I think more to the point, rather than just using Yaniv as proof that all trans women are just men with a fetish, it is also suggesting that with self ID waxing salons with have NO CHOICE but to wax someone's balls if they say they are women otherwise they will go to jail. IT'S TRUE and so self ID is bad and will force us all to touch balls even if we don't want to

That's partly the point.  These women have been trained to wax around female genitalia, which is going to be an entirely different process to what's being requested.  If I want my car serviced, I don't take it to a farrier.  But this individual is apparently more interested in making a stand than getting a technically good (and presumably rather less painful) job.

American legal system is a bit silly, obviously, maybe avoid it by not using silly euphemisms like 'brazilian' and 'hollywood' but 'fanny waxing' makes it clear, it's not the gender they are waxing but the fanny. Male or female fannies are welcome, of course. It's a different procedure and I guess requires a different skill set?

Not in American English it doesn't.

Could go see a female GP and ask them to check for lumps? Is similar, no?

Also who gets rid of the pubes of male pornstars? I think it looks silly, but each to their own. They could go see whoever does that.

For the sake of clarity, it’s the Canadian legal system that’s relevant here

More like going to a gynaecologist & asking them to check your prostate, surely?

I wonder if in future generations my disdain for men getting all their pubes off will be looked upon as similarly niche, bizarre and archaic as lads today who only like '70s muff.

Could get a Twitter discussion going on this topic?

Yaniv does seem like a wrong'un if that thing about the pool party application is true.

Worryingly pinknews produces an uncritical article on this topic with zero mention of Yaniv's history as a probable wrong'un:

I know very little about the Yaniv case but they do sound like a dodgy bastard.

And regarding the salon thing, couldn't the salon say something along the lines of 'we don't wax knackers, whether you're male or female'? Maybe they did, maybe I should do some reading about it, but I feel like I'd end up down a rabbit hole I have no wish to go down.
