A Canadian high school has responded to pupils posting pictures of a trans teacher wearing enormous prosthetic breasts, citing its ‘diversity’ policy. MailOnline has more.
Kayla Lemieux, a Manufacturing Technology teacher at Oakville Trafalgar High School in Ontario, has been pictured online taking classes while wearing the huge prosthetics, which stretch her clothing and stick out prominently.
Ms Lemieux, who began transitioning from being male to a female a year ago, has gone viral online after students took photos and videos of the teacher…
In response, the high school has doubled down and defended their employee, writing to parents and explaining why they support Ms. Lemieux’s gender expression, Reduxx reports.
The school is said to be expecting protests when it opens on Monday since the photos went viral.
In a statement to parents, the school said: “As a school within the Halton District School Board (HDSB), Oakville Trafalgar High School recognises 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.”
