gender neutral terms

The Berkeley Council voted unanimously to replace more than two dozen terms often used in the city’s municipal code with gender-neutral words.

Jessica-Yaniv

A woman in Canada was forced to close her business following backlash for her refusal to wax the male genitals of trans activist Jessica Yaniv, formerly known as Jonathan Yaniv.

Yaniv filed a complaint with the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal seeking financial restitution.

According to Yaniv, estheticians should be obliged to provide a service like waxing to a female-identifying trans person and religious and cultural views should not interfere with the ability to access a service.

“The people that discriminated against me are forcing their beliefs on society,” said Yaniv, who is representing herself, while cross-examining her own mother who she called as a witness to the tribunal.

manspreading chair

A British designer has unveiled a piece of furniture that she believes could be the solution to manspreading.

Manspreading occurs when a man sits with his legs spread wide apart in a way that invades the space of others, with women typically bearing the brunt of this practice. Instances of manspreading can frequently be observed on public transport where men can be seen occupying two, or even three, spaces as a result of their wide-legged stance.

According to feminists, manspreading may appear to be an innocuous practice, but is actually a problematic assertion of patriarchal power.
