‘This is a school, not a circus’: Students join protest against trans teacher with massive fake breasts
ONTARIO, CANADA: A transgender high school teacher named Kayla Lemieux has been going viral for flaunting massive prosthetic breasts at Oakville Trafalgar High School. Students from the school have been protesting against the transgender teacher after she gained global attention with videos and photos appearing on social media platforms.
According to The Daily Mail, the Halton District School Board (HDSB) issued a statement after seeing the pressure from furious parents. The statement said that their hands were tied due to the province's Human Rights Code. This came after several students joined a small protest on Friday, September 23 with one declaring, “This is a school, not a circus. We just want to learn.” A motion was earlier put forward at a school board meeting to consider altering the dress code. If this comes to reality, it would mean that Lemieux may have to ditch the fabric-stretching prosthetic breasts, which sell online for as much as $1,000.

‘This is a school, not a circus’
Speaking of protests, The Daily Mail reported that across the street, several people held signs that spelled out “Inclusivity is no excuse for depravity.” One person held up a sign reading, “Teacher’s personal propaganda has no place in the classroom.” Cops were present at the protest that saw close to 100 people. They reportedly escorted vehicles out of the school parking lot.
At the protest, one male student shouted, “Thank you for speaking up for us. This is a school not a circus! We just want to learn!” Another student told the protesters, “It’s so crazy that nobody is doing anything.” One of the protest organizers slammed the human rights code for protecting “a man who dresses up as a woman who has size Z fetish fake boobs.” According to the publication, Lemieux was reportedly taken out of the school to the driveway of an adjacent YMCA childcare facility. She was apparently driven away from the scene.

‘We are almost under lockdown just because of haters’
A few other students stated that the heavy presence of cops was more interesting than Lemieux's heavy prosthetics. “It's kind of nuts that we're almost under lockdown just because of haters," asserted Mark, a Grade 11 student, who added that school officials “haven't really talked about what's going on except to tell us to report suspicious people on the grounds.”
Another student, who wished to stay anonymous, said that Lemieux was teaching for nearly two weeks without any fuss. “People were talking about it but it wasn't really a big deal.” Students, who joined the protest, had an issue with the rules saying that they were bound by a dress code that prohibited visible nipples or genitalia. They questioned why the same rules did not apply to Lemieux.
The Halton District School board earlier came forward in defense of Lemieux and said it would no longer answer questions because it was a “personnel matter.” It was also reported that students were skipping Lemieux's class amidst the backlash. In an official statement, the board stated, “The HDSB recognizes the rights of students, staff, parents/guardians, and community members to equitable treatment without discrimination based upon gender identity and gender expression. Gender identity and gender expression are protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code.”
