Washington Judge Orders Female-Only Spa with Compulsory Nudity to Admit Transgender Women with Penises, After Owner Said Facility was for 'biological women only' and Pre-Op Trans Activist Complained; Women-Only Nude Spa Lawyer Accuses Trans Activist of ‘malignant intent,’ Trying to ‘destroy’ business

Washington judge orders female-only spa with compulsory nudity to admit transgender women with penises, after owner said facility was for 'biological women only' and pre-op trans activist complained:
A women's spa, where nudity is compulsory, has been ordered by a judge to admit pre-op trans women with penises after an activist complained when the owner tried to ban them.
Olympus Spa had attempted to sue the Washington State Human Rights Commission (WSHRC) after being ordered to change their rules.
Trans woman Haven Wilvich's membership application for the Korean spa was declined. She alleged the spa told her 'transgender women without surgery are not welcome' and complained to the commission.
The family-owned spa, which has a branch on the outskirts of Seattle and one in Tacoma, is modeled on Jjimjilbang - sex-segregated bath houses in Korea - and offers monthly memberships and day passes.
Now, a Washington District Court has dismissed the lawsuit filed by the spa and upheld the original ruling by the WSHRC. The Pacific Northwest state is one of several Dem-run areas where trans people are permitted to use facilities which align with their gender without question.
In her judgement, District Court Judge Barbara Jacobs Rothstein upheld the ruling made by the WSHRC and said that the measures taken to the prevent the spa from having a female-only policy had been lawful.
In the initial complaint to the commission, Wilvich said she was a transgender woman who was 'biologically male' and had not undergone sex reassignment surgery.
Wilvich alleged that she had gone to the spa in January 2020 in search of a service but was discriminated against.
She claims that Olympus Spa told her that 'transgender women without surgery are not welcome because it could make other customers and staff uncomfortable.' --->READ MORE HERE
Women-only nude spa lawyer accuses trans activist of ‘malignant intent,’ trying to ‘destroy’ business
A trans activist who accused a women-only nude spa of discrimination had “malignant intent” when she made her gripe — because it came months before she underwent sex reassignment surgery, a lawyer for the business claimed.
Tracy Tribbett, who is representing Olympus Spa in Washington State, ripped Haven Wilvich for filing a complaint with the state’s human rights commission after she was denied entry to the business.
“A person who is … months away from gender reassignment surgery who complains and tries to ruin and destroy this business, that’s harmful, if not, malignant intent,” Tribbett told The Lynnwood Times.
Wilvich, a transgender woman, claimed she had visited the spa with friends in January 2020 but denied entry because she still had male genitalia.
A month later, she filed her complaint against the spa in Lynwood, Wash., about 30 minutes north of Seattle.
The spa has always had a policy of accepting trans women who have had sexual reassignment surgery, Tribbet said.
“Olympus Spa is not open to the public, nor has it ever been. The spa discriminates against men and it discriminates against those under the age of 13,” she told The Daily Mail. “This is different from other cases, like a cake-baking shop or a flower shop.
“What we seem to have here is an activist trolling online to find different businesses that might not be complying with what they perceive to be the law,” Tribbett added. --->READ MORE HERE
