A "woman" is suing to have "her" testicles waxed. What a time to be alive!
The owner of a local waxing spa is mounting a public campaign to clear the name of his business after he was served a human rights complaint for denying service to a transgender woman.
Jason Carruthers, the president of Mad Wax on Walker Road, said he was surprised at the legal move since he had explained to the complainant that the spa did not offer Brazilian wax services on male body parts. “I have no male wax staff,” Carruthers said Friday. “We are not able to provide that service.”
A local transgender woman claims she was denied services based on her gender identity and gender expression and is seeking $50,000 for “immense harm to my dignity.”
Here is where individual rights collide.
Trans-woman (with male genitalia) wants a genital waxing. Staff is all female and not personally comfortable and/or willing to wax male genitals.
Can spa owner legally force employees into doing something they do not feel comfortable doing?
Where does the rights of one (in this case, a Trans person) end and the rights of others begin?

Relax, you totally misunderstood me.
I never once said this particular business should wax nuts, I said in threads like this or the gay wedding cake fiasco I never see people turn around and say:
I'll wax those nuts for $15

Well we can't be "normal" because that would imply someone else isn't normal and that hurts feelings. Of course, they can't take the opportunity to look at their status as "special" which I always though of a positive way to be not normal, but I digress.
For some people, it's far more fun to ruin everyone else's day then find ways to make lemonade out of their lemons.
