Rise of LGBTQ Bullying? Christians sued by transgenders, lesbians, citing discrimination, equal rights
Christian Baker Jack Philips, sued thrice for refusing to bake “gay cakes”
Jack Philips is a ‘cake artist” in Colorado. In 2012, he respectfully declined a gay couple who wanted him to make a “same-sex” themed cake. The couple felt they were discriminated against and sued Jack Philips for his position.
In 2017, Jack Philips faced a third lawsuit. A new customer who would have known that Jack Philips avoided making LGBTQ cakes, asked him to make a ‘gender transition cake.” Naturally, he refused. The customer, Autumn Scardina who was a lawyer, sued him.
Christian Bakers Melissa & Aaron Klein sued for refusing same-sex cake
In January 2013, lesbian couple Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer wanted Melissa and Aaron Klein of Sweet Cakes by Melissa to make a same-sex wedding cake. They respectfully refused. The women filed complaints citing discrimination. The court decided against the Kleins and asked them to pay $135,000 in state-ordered damages.
Many saw the case similar to that of Jack Philips, as “government hostility towards religious belief” (Fox News). In 2019, the Supreme Court threw out the ruling against the Christian couple. In 2020, the Oregon court plans to revisit the case if there was religious discrimination.
Transwoman “Sara Tonin,” attacks shop clerk for saying “sir”

In the video, the transgender undoubtedly looked like a man dressed in women’s clothes. The clerk, obviously in a kneejerk response to a male customer, was respectful and profusely apologized.
Transgender activist Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv sues salon, gynecologist
At least two salons in Vancouver forced to close after refusing to wax the male genitalia of transgender activist Jonathan Yaniv. He wanted a “Brazilian wax” but was declined service upon learning she was transgender.
The British Human Rights Tribunal dismissed her complaint. They also called her testimony ‘disingenuous’ and ‘self-serving.’ Yaniv posted on Twitter that she will “Never give up fighting for human rights equality.”
In 2020, Jessica Yaniv said she was suing a gynecologist who refused to see her. The Doctor told her “we don’t serve transgender patients.” Yaniv was shocked, confused, and hurt. Jessica is convinced she is a full biological woman. According to Rebel News, Yaniv said she couldn’t go to the beach, because she had a period.
