Jessica Yaniv (born Jonathan Yaniv), a self-identified transgender woman from Canada currently involved in a scandalous waxing case, has announced that menstruation has stood in the way of a trip to the pool.
“My period started so ya, couldn’t go into the pool,” Yaniv tweeted on Sunday, according to screenshots which have circulated on social media. “But it was so much fun! Forgot my tampons in my other bag fml.”
The tweet appears to have since been deleted, but comments from Twitterians that are still available indicate widespread amusement – and sometimes anger – over the situation.
The problem is that Yaniv has yet to undergo a sex reassignment surgery, which means that the transgender woman still has male private parts.
Dear LGBT, this is why we can't have nice things.— Kimera (@Arialstrasza) August 11, 2019
We are being represented by the worst among us, no wonder laws are being made to ban us from places like the Military.
Why did the military banned us?? because they think we are all like this, and I can't say I blame them.
Do they make tampons that actually fit down the end of a man's penis?— Emma Louisa J 🥂🍾🏴🏴🇬🇧 (@Emmalouisajones) August 11, 2019
I assume that's where all this imaginary blood of yours is coming from?🤦🏼♀️
This should infuriate every woman on the face of the earth...........wtf— Jacob Hair (@jlhrocks) August 12, 2019
I know all trans people aren’t monsters like “Jessica”. Most are good people just trying to be who they feel they are without hurting others. This guy is taking advantage of the community and what they have fought for as a way to access young girls.— Cassidy (@artandhappy) August 12, 2019
Yaniv, however, refuses to self-identify as a man or a biological male, and describes herself as a “woman with a trans background”.
The transgender activist is currently suing over a dozen female salon workers for refusing to wax her male private parts. The case is being heard in a British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal, which is expected to issue a ruling in the fall.
Several Canadian publications have provided extensive coverage of the case, including Yaniv’s controversial record of online communication with teenage girls. As evidenced by screenshots that were allegedly leaked by the girls who had chatted with Yaniv on social media, the trans woman expicitly demonstrated fixations on pre-teen girls and menstruation, as well as a hostile attitude toward immigrants living in Canada.
At least one of these girls has reported Yaniv to CyberTip, the national Canadian tip line for reporting the sexual exploitation of children. Yaniv insists the incriminating screenshots are bogus and denies all accusations.
