Sigh. The therapist concerned may have only got her training in the treatments she was interested in. If she knew she had no intention of ever waxing a back, crack and sack she wouldn't have wasted her money on that particular aspect. She then got a job in a salon that didn't offer that treatment. She would have been totally unprofessional and open to liability had she agreed to do it without having had the training. Why are you struggling to understand this very simple situation? Rhetorical, I know you do really.

As I understand it in these cases the defendants were all offering Brazilians, now if they did not do it no matter what you had down there that would be a different situation.

I don't care about this issue one bit, but I identify as someone who does. It's a strange one.

Well here's my take on that.

Ricky Gervais is a total cock that talks a load of bollocks most of the time.

This seems more about JV trying to get his junk touched than fighting for a right. https://www.thepostmillennial.com/ma...a-waxing-case/

And there are some disturbing claims coming up when you Google the person's birth first name.

He's a weirdo that's for sure. And before I get a backlash I will reiterate that if he has a cock and balls then he's a man. So why did he not go to a men only salon? He can get a pretend vagina later and then try again at a ladies only salon. He needs one of those white jacket things.

In British Columbia the requirement for surgery to change the birth certificate gender marker was removed in 2014

Misgendering could result in jail time.

So can lots of other things, but people still do them, either through not knowing there's a law or feeling the risk is worth it.

But 'could result in' doesn't mean 'will result in'. And I suspect this person was deliberately looking to cause a problem, based on the link I posted earlier.

As I don't reside in British Columbia, nor am I visiting, not something I worry about.
