LAWSUIT: Muslim Woman Sued For Refusing To Wax Pre-Op Transsexual’s Genitals

Published

on

Canadian lawmakers will soon have to answer the next great human rights question, which is set to be a true milestone for equality: Is a transgender woman legally entitled to compel a Muslim body waxer to pluck her genitals when, for religious purposes, the waxer normally waxes only biological women?

According to the complaint, the transgender woman is fighting Mad Wax, a Canadian “spa” in Windsor, Ontario for “refusal to provide me with leg-waxing services because I am a transgender woman, and their disclosing my name, gender identity and personal information to various media outlets has left me feeling threatened, exposed, with my rights violated in terms of seeking services as a woman in the Windsor-Essex community.”

Transgender women are biologically male, and this particular waxing customer is pre-operation, meaning that she still has her male appendages.

“All clients regardless of sex, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation are welcome,” said Jason Carruthers, CEO of Mad Wax said in a statement. “However, we also welcome staff members and respect their religious beliefs and feelings of safety and dignity in regards to the right not to perform waxing services on males or male genitals.”

Carruthers said that the transgender woman requested a Brazilian wax, not a leg wax as she claims in her lawsuit. According to him, Mad Wax does not perform Brazilian waxes on males.

“[The policy] has never been an issue,” he said.

The Canadian Human Rights Act says that businesses must provide “accommodations for transgender or gender non-conforming persons when necessary.” The transgender woman is seeking $50,000 in damages.

Country Band that Changed Name from “Lady Antebellum” to “Lady A” Now Suing Black Artist That Originally Used Title

They changed their name because of supposed Confederate ties.

A country music band that changed their name from ‘Lady Antebellum’ to ‘Lady A’ in the wake of the George Floyd race riots is now suing the singer who originally used the title, who is black.

The band had announced it’d change its name in the wake of criticism from liberals, who took offense at the word ‘Antebellum-‘ a phrase sometimes used in historical writings to describe the American South before the Civil War. The group instead opted to call itself “Lady A,” a name, as it turns out, was already in use by Seattle-area blues and folk singer Anita White.

The dispute between Lady Antebellum and White has been identified as a striking example of liberal hypocrisy and self-aggrandizement, with the band making a supposedly virtuous stance and sacrifice by changing their name, utterly ignoring that they were usurping on a musical name already used by a black artist.

In a new development highlighting the Nashville act’s bad faith, the band is now suing White, claiming that they’ve always had the name she’s used as a legal trademark and refusing any claim of monetary damages from the name change on the part of White.

Today we are sad to share that our sincere hope to join together with Anita White in unity and common purpose has ended,” the group said in a statement. “She and her team have demanded a $10 million payment, so reluctantly we have come to the conclusion that we need to ask a court to affirm our right to continue to use the name Lady A, a trademark we have held for many years.

If Lady Antebellum proves successful in getting the government to recognize their copyright claim to ‘Lady A,’ the artist that originally used the name will have no choice but to surrender it to the more commercially known and influential musical act.

Observers of the situation immediately slammed the country music group for its disrespect for the title’s existing user.
