Oakville teacher shocks students by wearing huge prosthetic breasts to shop class

Video footage and photos of a Toronto-area high school teacher are blowing up online today, sparking a raucous debate about what educators should and shouldn't wear to work.

It appears as though many social media users first became aware of the teacher in question (and, more specifically, the sizeable prosthetic bust she wears,) when an American radio host tweeted a series of images said to have been captured at Oakville Trafalgar High School.

In the clips, we see a woman with long blonde hair wearing what appear to be bicycle shorts with various incredibly tight tops — tight on account of the fact that the teacher's breasts appear to be at least twice the size of her head. Each.

Way-too-concerned Twitter users began sleuthing out who this mysterious, chesty shop class teacher might be, and eventually determined that the instructor in question is a tech teacher.

The teacher is reported to be a transgender individual who previously went by a different name.

In some photos shared by students on Snapchat and later recirculated by adults on Twitter, the teacher's name can be seen written on the blackboard as "Ms. Lemieux."

It is apparent in many photos, based simply on human physiology (and in some cases sheer clothing,) that the teacher is wearing a prosthetic chest piece of some kind.

The Halton District School Board (HDSB), which is responsible for Oakville Trafalgar High School, could not confirm the name of the now-viral individual when asked about the situation.

"As this is a personnel matter, we cannot provide further information," said a representative for the board to blogTO.

"The Halton District School Board is committed to establishing and maintaining a safe, caring, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning and working environment for all students and staff."

Noting that they "strive to promote and support a positive learning environment in schools," the HDSB did tell blogTO that it "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," said the HDSB staffer.

At least one student from Oakville Trafalgar is reported to have confirmed in a now-deleted tweet that the images are real, as opposed to part of a hoax, as some originally believed them to be.

Some screencaptured Snapchat posts shared on Twitter feature text overlays, one on a photo of the busty teacher walking outdoors with the words "Mr. [redacted] just going to work."

The teacher's current and pre-transition names are both listed as tech teachers on the high school's online faculty directory.

The feminist news and opinion website Reduxx, which was first to report on the images, writes that the teacher seen in the photos is "a Manufacturing Technology instructor who allegedly began identifying as a woman last year."

Images of the teacher taken on multiple days are now circulating widely, attracting the ire of anti-trans Twitter users, who, for some reason, suddenly give so many effs about Canadian high school students they've never met.

Angry people are bombarding both The Halton District District School Board and Oakville Trafalgar High School on Twitter right now, arguing (among other things I will not repeat) that the teacher shouldn't be allowed to wear such revealing garb to school.

This is far from the first time that a woman educator has been criticized widely online for wearing something deemed "inappropriate" or "distracting" to work, nor is it the first time that a teacher from the LGBTQIA2S+ community been harassed for expressing their identity.

Just a few weeks ago, an elementary school teacher from New Jersey went viral for having a "curvy" figure, inadvertently soliciting thousands of unwanted sexual advances and insults.
