Jessica Yaniv (born Jonathan Yaniv) takes particular relish in filing complaints with businesses under the guise of fighting for her right to self-expression. The beauty salons that refused to wax her scrotum have won their case against the activist, but a Canadian clinic has now found itself in Yaniv’s cross-hairs.
The activist said she was “shocked and hurt” to have been refused examination and suggested that this went against the college’s practices. Yaniv then claimed that the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia (CPSBC), which regulates the medical practice in the province, confirmed that this refusal was in violation of their code of ethics and the provincial Human Rights Code.
Yaniv wrote: “Gynaecologists form a part of the multidisciplinary team who engage with transgender and non‐binary patients, either as part of the transition stage performing surgery or managing pre‐ or post‐transition gynaecological problems.”
“So I’ll file a complaint with you today about that clinic,” Yaniv tweeted at the CPSBC on Tuesday. “Trans people need to be included, not excluded from society. Pre and post gender affirming surgery care is super important!”
