AIBU to mention scrotum-waxing?

An important case is underway in Canada.
Should female beauticians be legally obliged to provide intimate waxing services to transwomen with penises (men)?

No, I don't think they should.

I think its probably more the case that they need grounds for refusing a service to men when they give a similar service to women Tedber.
Makes me wince a little thinking of it.

MissAdventure Fri 19-Jul-19 20:05:37

I'd make 'em wince alright!

suziewoozie Fri 19-Jul-19 20:10:21

No soda it’s not that - it’s about providing the service to men with penises who self identify as women. It’s absolutely appalling that these beauticians are being subject to this

suziewoozie Fri 19-Jul-19 20:11:27

And I find your post somewhat distasteful Tedber

Tedber Fri 19-Jul-19 20:21:30

Yep...I thought some people would Suzie Apologies to anyone who finds it offensive. It is true never the less.

suziewoozie Fri 19-Jul-19 20:25:54

Because something is true, it doesn’t make it any less distasteful. In fact it’s irrelevant that it’s true ( or not). If you thought some might not appreciate your post, why did you nevertheless post it?

Tedder, glad you have the decency to apologise........please apply that principle (decency) to your future posts. Thankyou .

MawBroonsback Fri 19-Jul-19 20:30:33

Lots of things may be true but I do not necessarily want them drawn to my attention.

Waxing a scrotum requires a different set of skills to waxing labia. The skin is ‘baggier’ and more easily ripped.

MawBroonsback Fri 19-Jul-19 20:35:58

Dizzyblonde I repeat.

Tedber Fri 19-Jul-19 20:37:48

OK Suzie...maybe I thought it was funny? But after posting I wondered if the world of gransnet could laugh so hence the reason I apologised to anyone who felt offended by me mentioning porn and "bits" etc.

Once again, am sorry I offended you. Not my intention but I do think gransnet is a bit too stuffy for the likes of me! Sometimes I feel everyone is 'pretending' to be these perfect responsible people who never ever had a life before they became old! I was probably a disgrace to the race in my younger days t.b.h. and what I felt then is not what I felt or behave now is still there. smile

Tedber Fri 19-Jul-19 20:39:55

crazyH Thank you for your sanctimonious post lol

fizzers Fri 19-Jul-19 20:40:34

Tbh, Tedber I laughed at your post, I'm also finding folks a bit too stuffy on here , perhaps this place isn't for me

Riverwalk Fri 19-Jul-19 20:41:46

I wish people would read the link or get acquainted with the story - it's not about the technicalities of waxing a scrotum or the differences between male/female genitalia.

GrannyGravy13 Fri 19-Jul-19 20:42:00

Tedber I am so far from "proper" it's hilarious........ but if you have a penis you can identify as whatever you like - but you are not a flipping woman!!!!!

suziewoozie Fri 19-Jul-19 20:49:58

Tedber you have absolutely no idea what any of us are (and were) like. Not appreciating your grubby little post does not make me stuffy

Tedber Fri 19-Jul-19 20:55:44

'grubby' Suzie...what was 'grubby' about it? It was just an anecdote from me. Nothing for you to get upset about. Nothing personal so not sure why you are so upset. Move on

Elegran Fri 19-Jul-19 20:57:00

So should beauticians who offer a Brazilian wax be legally obliged to wax scrota? (plural of scrotum, before you ask)

Though I can't imagine any one except a masochist actually wanting to experience this service. Maybe non-masochists would do better to use a hair removal cream? Maybe not - see the reviews of Veet For Men at

Elegran Fri 19-Jul-19 21:00:09

It was the teeheehees that were grubby, Ted, they gave a distinct impression that your mind was too. Gransnet isn't as stuffy as you seem to think, though. Perhaps you haven't been a member very long?

Bridgeit Fri 19-Jul-19 21:01:01

Perhaps some of us have more pressing matters to worry about & attend to than to be overly concerned or not that a lovely human being has been mis pro noun-ed .
I don’t think anyone should be obliged to perform a service they aren’t comfy with , that would be ‘inverted discrimination’ rights work both way ie if you have a right to do something then surely you have a right not to !

kircubbin2000 Fri 19-Jul-19 21:01:14

Why on earth would you want to be waxed?
