Transgender Activist Targets Gynecologists
Self-described "LGBTQIA+ advocate" Jessica Yaniv is no stranger to controversy.

Yaniv, a transgender activist, made headlines earlier this year when a Canadian court ruled against her in a case originating from a complaint Yani filed against multiple female beauticians who refused to wax her male genitals.

Now she is back, claiming gynecologists should be compelled by law to see transgender patients that don't have female reproductive organs.

The Daily Wire's Amanda Prestigiacomo has more:

On Monday night, the activist ranted via Twitter about allegedly being discriminated against and turned away from a gynecology office because Yaniv is transgender. 


Yaniv, a biological male, does not have a uterus or ovaries and it’s unclear if the activist has had what is often dubbed in the trans world as “bottom surgery.” In other words, it’s unclear how a standard gynecologist could provide care to the activist. Also, it remains unclear if Yaniv actually was turned away and for what reason.


“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 gynecological problems,” the activist added.
