Trans-identified male awarded $35,000 by Ontario court after women's salon refused to wax 'her' balls

"They're saying that I discriminated against the person," said Carruthers.

A Canadian court awarded a trans-indetified male, who claims to be a woman, $35,000 after an Ontario women's salon refused to wax "her" male genitalia. The salon employee working that day was a devout Muslim woman who refrained from physical contact with men, and the salon owner told the trans woman that they could not find a way to accommodate her request.

Jason Carruthers, owner of Mad Wax in Windsor, told Rebel News that he has 30 days to pay the hefty sum following a six-year battle in court. He has filed for an appeal and launched a fundraiser.

The complainant, identified as AB, filed a complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario in 2018 after speaking to Carruthers on the phone, in which the individual said the waxing services was denied. The court found Carruthers liable for discrimination and "misgendering" the complainant.

The business owner said the complainant AB changed the story, claiming after the fact that only a leg waxing was requested. Carruthers explained that his salon has always waxed transgender clients' legs, but the caller did not ask for a leg wax.

Carruthers told AB that he did not have any employees available who could provide a "male waxing" service at that time, referring to AB's biological male genitalia and not the complainant's gender identity. Hence the point of the complaint.

After AB filed a human rights complaint, Carruthers told reporters that AB had requested "male Brazilian waxing," a comment that the human rights court used against him.

"They're saying that I discriminated against the person, but they're also saying that I reprised when I spoke to the media. So those two things are factored into the amount," the business owner told Rebel News.

Carruthers's comments to the media reportedly "traumatized" the AB, who claimed to the court that the incident had opened up a public conversation about "the status of her physical transition."

"I'm looking at every avenue to fight this legally," said Carruthers, who explained that the court has the power to seize his assets and garnish his income. The business owner's lawyer, Raymond Colautti, called the ruling "deeply flawed" and told the CBC that he has filed an appeal.
