A high school teacher from Canada, who wears extremely large size-Z prosthetic breasts to school has been placed on leave after reports begin to circulate that she barely wears them outside of the classroom, reports the New York Post. It was confirmed by the Halton School District that Kayla Lemieux, a teacher at Oakville Trafalgar High School was placed on paid leave, which occurred on Tuesday.
Heather Francey, a spokesperson informed the Toronto Sun,
“While not currently on an active assignment, the teacher remains employed with the (Halton District School Board).”
The Sun reports that the teacher’s suspension came after Stephen Lecce, an Education Minister, Natalie Pierre, Effie Triantafilopoulos, and Stephen Crawford, the Halton Region MPPs reproached the school board for
“having abdicated its responsibility by failing to put the interests and safety of students first.”
A parent expressed to the school board on Wednesday that
“forms of identity and expression presented in the school environment [must] be scrutinized against the child’s safeguarding practices.”
The board stayed silent despite receiving months of complaints from parents about the teacher sporting the size-Z prosthetics in front of the students. Photos have been taken of the teacher wearing tight clothes with the prosthetics, which showcased prints of her nipples. The arising issue has caused controversy aimed at school officials. The story began to gain much attraction after The Post reported that the teacher rarely wears the prosthetic breast, wig, and makeup outside of school and
“appears as a man.”
Photos showed Lemieux outside of school wearing a puffer jacket, men’s sweatpants, and sneakers.
The teacher said in a discussion with The Post that the man dressed down in the photos wasn’t her. She said
“These are real,”
also telling them that she can’t disclose who the man was in the photo
“because I don’t want to bring anyone else into this.”
“This is who I am. This is how I look. You’ve been talking to people in my building but what they’re telling you is harsh and untrue. I am always going out looking the way I am,” she added.
The teacher revealed that back in 2021, she began hormone replacement therapy; however, she isn’t a
and was born
She later said that her large breast is the result of a disorder called gigantomastia, which she says she wasn’t officially diagnosed with.
