A trans-activist in Canada (previously known as Jonathan Yaniv) was trying to force women to wax his genitalia. Since one refused (they didn't offer Manzilians), he filed a complaint with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal citing gender identity discrimination, demanding financial restitution. The defendants pointed out safety concerns since testicles are different than women's bikini lines, but they couldn't afford the $20,000 it would take to fight the case, so it forced them to close their businesses, and JY celebrated the hostile act as a victory. It came out that s/he did that to 15 other estheticians, is a proud bigot that joined a women's gym to avoid dirty immigrants, and that s/he sent inappropriate tweets to early teenage girls, such as "show me your used tampon". Then he went one to harass people on twitter, and when they responded he cried trans-bigotry and got them banned: Meghan Murphy and Lindsay Shepherd -- while s/he gets to keep her account in gleeful bigotry. Yaniv was raided by the RCMP over concerns about being a predator posing as a trans person, as well as illegal weapons and running afoul of speech laws (with an anti-immigration rant). It couldn't happen to a nicer activist predator, that still qualifies for a blue-checked twitter account. S/he later lost a lawsuit against an esthetician showing that Canada might be nuts, but they're not fucking nuts.

Obviously, I'm not a fan of fanatics and haters. I believe in respecting trans preferred pronouns (as long as they are he or she). But I don't believe in criminalizing mislabelling them. Being an asshole isn't a crime, or many of the trans people would be outlawed (like Jessica). And s/he deserves the freedom to be an asshole, as long as s/he's not hiding behind the shield that because she's a Trans-asshole, that no one gets to be an asshole back. That's bullshit. She gets to be a raging fanatic, and others get to call her on it. That's how freedom is supposed to work. Not some classes are protected whereas others get to be victimized without consequence.
