To celebrate Yaniv losing Yaniv's case?

Comprehensively.

The court found that Yaniv "engaged in improper conduct, filed complaints for improper purposes" and that Yaniv's testimony was "disingenuous and self-serving" as well as "evasive and argumentative and contradicted herself while giving evidence".

Oh and costs were awarded to three of the BAME women victimised by Yaniv's action.

YADNBU!!!

Thank goodness, but that was just one battle. Women’s rights remain under severe threat. R McKinnon’s “victory” in cycling over the weekend confirms there are still many fronts

InflagranteDelicto Wed 23-Oct-19 08:26:47

Excellent news. I really pleased for the women involved.
Were there any consequences for yaniv as a result of the judgement?

Fantastic news YANBU

ChristaMSieland Wed 23-Oct-19 08:33:50

Yaniv has to pay the women @InflagranteDelicto and hopefully Yaniv now realises that the court sees through Yaniv's BS and that the human rights line won't work.

Had to google to find out who Yaniv is. How awful for those women involved. Glad that common sense and respect for women has prevailed in this case.

Whatisthisfuckery Wed 23-Oct-19 08:44:14

So glad that sick racist pervert has lost. It says something about the current climate when I was actually worried he’d win.

Placemaking to see if anyone comes on to defend him.

OtraCosaMariposa Wed 23-Oct-19 08:45:15

YANBU. This case is one of the most fucked up things I've read in a long time.

ChristaMSieland Wed 23-Oct-19 08:45:23

It's a shocking little story, but if common sense can prevail in the modern Canadian context, there is hope everywhere.

SkaraBrae Wed 23-Oct-19 08:46:19

Great news!

Almost shocking to see that there still is some sensible people in the world.

Is this the ball wax nutter?

ChristaMSieland Wed 23-Oct-19 08:47:40

Is this the ball wax nutter?

Yes.

SleepyKat Wed 23-Oct-19 08:48:06

Good that they have to pay compensation. Should never have got this far.

OtraCosaMariposa Wed 23-Oct-19 08:48:52

This is a person who wanted women, working at home, to perform intimate Brazilian waxing on her female penis and testicles. And then sued the women for discrimination when they pointed out that that was male genitalia, not female. Because in Canada, a female penis is apparently a thing.

hmm

CatherineOfAragonsPrayerBook Wed 23-Oct-19 08:48:57

I had to check up what you were talking about and I'm shocked!

Utterly ridiculous. Just outrageously.

Of course is a flipping fantastic victory, but as a case, it should never have got so far in the first place!!!angry

I found this point illustrative of how plain victorian asylum level madness things have got:

Yaniv is being ordered to pay $2,000 to three of the accused women, one of whom was forced out of business due to the case.

A woman was hounded out of business for refusing to touch and wax a mans balls???!!!!!

I heard nothing about this on the news!

PickAChew Wed 23-Oct-19 08:51:14

Thank goodness. Yaniv is a revolting excuse for a human being in so many ways.

ElizaDee Wed 23-Oct-19 08:51:43

Common sense prevails.
👏👏👏

Can he appeal?

I can't Google because my app resets and I lose my place.

InflagranteDelicto Wed 23-Oct-19 08:53:03

Thanks Christa. Didn't want to start googling, I'd end up losing time and being late for work, and want sure how far reaching the court was.

Hopefully the damage to yaniv's wallet (pocket/shiny sparkly purse) will help ram the court's message into yaniv's brain.

HeadLikeAFuckinOrange Wed 23-Oct-19 08:54:29

I think it's terrifying we live in such crazy times, we actually needed a court case to decide whether a woman has the right to refuse handling male genitals in the first place.

Fucking insanity.

omikron Wed 23-Oct-19 08:55:29

Excellent. Wish big Rache would do one

ChristaMSieland Wed 23-Oct-19 08:56:00

I'm not sure if Yaniv has a legal right to appeal, but the judgment is so damning, I doubt there would be much point.

The full court decision (many pages) is reproduced at the bottom of this article:

JAPAB Wed 23-Oct-19 08:56:38

The court found that Yaniv "engaged in improper conduct, filed complaints for improper purposes" and that Yaniv's testimony was "disingenuous and self-serving" as well as "evasive and argumentative and contradicted herself while giving evidence".

Presumably that was something the judge threw in as a side-point. Rather than being part of the reason why the claim of discrimination was dismissed. Because the above doesn't really have anything to do with whether offering services exclusively for one type of genitals is trans-discrimination, or not.

I was so ready to be disappointed at the outcome of this case, what a welcome surprise that it ended in the women's favour.
