Kayla Lemieux: Outrage after school defends trans teacher who wore massive fake breasts under tight T-shirt during class
ONTARIO, CANADA: Pictures of a Canadian high school teacher instructing pupils while donning massive breast prostheses under a tight T-shirt have caused a stir. Kayla Lemieux, who teaches Manufacturing Technology at Oakville Trafalgar High School in Ontario, was captured teaching students while wearing the enormous fake breasts that protruded out of her clothes.
After pupils allegedly took pictures and videos of the instructor, Lemieux, who began the transition from a man to a woman a year ago, went viral, which also stirred controversy. In response, the high school stepped up in Lemieux's defense and wrote to outraged parents explaining why they approve of her gender presentation, according to Reduxx. Since the photographs went viral, the school is reportedly expecting protests from parents when it reopens on September 19, 2022.

In a statement to parents, the school said, "As a school within the Halton District School Board (HDSB), Oakville Trafalgar High School recognizes the rights of students, staff, parents/guardians and community members to equitable treatment without discrimination based upon gender identity and gender expression. We strive to promote a positive learning environment in schools consistent with the values of the HDSB and to ensure a safe and inclusive environment for all students, staff and the community, regardless of race, age, ability, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, socioeconomic circumstances or body type/size."

Many social media users believed that Lemieux's 'alternate' body form was not acceptable for a school environment despite some of them supporting it.

Another said, "1. inappropriate dress for shop class. Safety rule was, long pants, hair tied up an no jewellery 2.Female teachers with nipples showing would be spoken to. 3. Can we believe this person plans to surgically transition to having boobs that large? Seems like political provocation."

Another user said, "If this was a female student dressed like this in bike shorts, tight short exposing her nips out, she’d be sent home per the dress code. Why does this teacher get away with this?"

Parents were informed by the school that it is governed by the Ontario Human Rights Code, which upholds gender identity and expression as fundamental human rights. Margo Shuttleworth, chair of the HDSB, told the Toronto Sun that staff members are considering "going through building a safety plan" to protect the security of the Oakville Trafalgar High School teacher as they get ready for possible demonstrations when the school resumes classes on Monday. "This teacher (who teaches shop) is an extremely effective teacher," said Shuttleworth. "All the kids really love being in the class."
