The case of Jessica Yaniv proves that compelled speech is toxic 

The Post Millennial has been following the Jessica Yaniv story closely for weeks now. And we make no apologies for our repeated coverage. It is a story of a single, vexatious human rights litigant attempt to ruin the lives of more than a dozen Vancouver area estheticians—most of them women, and many of them poor immigrants working out of their own homes—by forcing them to (literally) handle her penis and testicles under the guise of trans rights.

It is also a story about policy and law because Yaniv waged her whole shakedown campaign only because Canada has rushed into a policy of unfettered gender self-identification, which allows any person reading this to demand treatment as man or woman by, in effect, snapping their fingers and declaring them so. While the vast majority of trans people in Canada apply this power of self-identification in good faith, a few do not.
