Local govt defers on trans activist’s request to allow topless pool parties for ages 12+
PETITION: Tell Rights Tribunal to THROW OUT cases of trans ‘woman’ demanding females wax his genitals Sign the petition here.
LANGLEY, British Columbia, July 23, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The Township of Langley voted Monday afternoon to defer until September a request by trans activist Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv that it allow “topless” LGBTQ2S swim parties at its pools for kids ages 12 and up, with no parents allowed.
Yaniv stated in a delegation request to appear before the Township Council that he seeks “permission for LGBTQ2s+ organizations to be allowed to host an ‘All-Bodies Swim’ at TOL civic pools (WG Rec, WC Clair, Otter) for all people aged 12+ where these events will be restricted to LGBTQ2S and individuals will be permitted to be topless (at their leisure), in compliance with the laws of Canada and where parents and caretakers will be prohibited from attending these events as it’s considered safe and inclusive.”
A biological male who identifies as a woman, Yaniv made international headlines last week as the individual who filed 16 complaints with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal against local beauticians for refusing to wax his male genitals and for getting free-speech advocate Lindsay Shepherd permanently banned from Twitter after she referred to him as a “fat, ugly man.”
Yaniv is also alleged to have long engaged in disturbing online behaviour toward underage girls, and screenshots of his comments about whether he would see nude girls in women’s change-rooms and about menstruation of 10- to 12-year-old girls have been circulating on the internet for months.
In his latest move, Yaniv was scheduled to address the Township of Langley council meeting July 22 to request a permit for topless pool parties for LGBTQ2S from which parents would be banned.
However, as tweeted by Chris Loyer on Monday, all councillors except Bob Long and Steven Ferguson voted on Eric Woodward’s proposal at Monday’s afternoon meeting to defer Yaniv’s delegation to September.
Woodward moved that the matter be deferred to September “subject to further council consideration,” given of the full agenda of the evening meeting, after councillors agreed the matter was not time sensitive.
Yaniv replied on Twitter:
Let’s wait till September. Gives me more time for ammo! https://t.co/4LuxnAsK50— Jessica Yaniv (@trustednerd) July 22, 2019
According to Yaniv’s Twitter account, he was inspired to request topless pool parties by the Langley Youth Centre, which planned a similar event for July 14 that was postponed after online backlash, as the Penticton Western News reported July 8.
I'm going to get this party RESTARTED. July 22nd, 7 PM at the TOL as a delegation. https://t.co/IfLuZA2tiP— Jessica Yaniv (@trustednerd) July 13, 2019
The Langley Youth Centre’s postponed topless pool party was for LGBTQ2S+ individuals from ages 12 to 24 and also excluded parents.
It was “organized and supported by the City of Langley, the Langley Local Action Team and Encompass Support Services Society as a safe, non-judgmental and inclusive activity for youth,” according to a notice posted on Eventbrite stating the event had been called off.
“Due to community response, we feel that we can no longer offer a safe and comfortable environment for the youth that wished to attend the Youth All-Bodies Swim; and therefore, we will be postponing the event,” the notice read.
“We are hopeful that we will be able to host this event in the near future.”
The notice was also tweeted out by one of the individuals calling for the event to be shut down:

The Township of Langley tweeted at the time that the event was not being held in its municipal pools.
Meanwhile, Yaniv has another hearing Friday before the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal for three more discrimination complaints against beauticians for not agreeing to wax his male genitals.
Writing in the National Review, Madeleine Kearns commented that Yaniv’s complaints aren’t about waxing but “about sex, surely. Yaniv is male — a male who has not made the surgical commitment necessary to pass as a female. On top of that, in the past year, Yaniv has presented unambiguously as a male on a number of sites including Google, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and YouTube. And on top of that, Yaniv is a male who is sexually attracted to females.”
Pointing to Yaniv pushing for topless pool parties for girls as young as age 12, Kernes observed, “An obviously predatory male is attempting to use the force of law to coerce females to touch his private parts and — unbelievably — a Canadian human-rights tribunal is entertaining this demand.”
Yaniv “has so perfectly exposed the absurdity of gender policies that it would scarcely be surprising if he turned out to be a troll.”
