In November it was reported that a Canadian school board is stood behind a trans teacher who sparked protests after turning up to classes with “clownish” giant prosthetic breasts.
Now the district is getting sued.
According to The Daily Mail furious families set up the page to bring in more money so they can force Oakville Trafalgar High School to make Kayla Lemieux abide by the dress code
The GoFundMe page is the second one launched by parents this year. The last page raised nearly $10,000.
Previously, a concerned parent described Lemieux as ‘a man who dresses up as a woman who has size Z fetish fake boobs.’
‘The teacher’s inappropriate attire and enormous prosthetic breasts have created a significant distraction that has led to serious safety concerns for the students and staff at the school,’ the crowdfunding page reads. The school has had three bomb threats since September 2022.
The page points out that there is a school dress policy for students but not for teachers. It was started by Students First Ontario, a pressure group that seeks a dress code for high school teachers.
Last year, pictures of Lemieux went viral thanks to her Z-cup size breasts, protruding nipples, and outrageous clothing choices.
‘Since the start of the 2022 Fall term, students at Oakville Trafalgar High School (OTHS) have become part of an international media spectacle – testing the limits of ‘diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI)’ and ‘identity & expression’ in a school environment,’ the Students First Ontario page reads.
On Wednesday, the Halton District School Board will vote on a new dress code for teachers, however, parents are incensed at the lack of specifics in the ruling, reports The National Post.
Teacher’s dress is covered by the board’s ‘professionalism policy’ in the new code.
‘The draft policy is yet again an example of the HDSB’s inability to develop a policy that will address the issue at hand — dress code and professionalism of teachers to ensure that students attend classes in an environment that is safe and distraction-free,’ a spokesperson for Students First Ontario, Celina Close, said.
Close accused the school board of not dealing with the issue. ‘Where is the urgency and willingness to work with parents and put the students first?’ she added.
Close also said that she expected parents to protest the board meeting.
Also this week, Ontario’s Minister for Education Stephen Lecce said: ‘Halton parents are rightfully outraged at what’s taking place,’ he told the Toronto Star.
‘Halton parents are rightfully outraged at what’s taking place… ‘The welfare of kids should prevail in our judgments in school boards and in government.’
Bizarrely last week, Lemieux said in an interview that her breasts are real and that she was born intersex and is not transgender.
‘I’m not wearing prosthetic breasts. These are real,’ Canadian Lemieux told the New York Post last week while explaining how she is not ‘transgender’ but was born ‘intersex.’
‘My condition is classified as gigantomastia, which can also be referred to as macromastia or breast hypertrophy,’ Lemieux said, although she noted how she had never received a formal medical diagnosis.
‘It’s rare, there’s no doubt about it. It affects women on a very rare basis, but in my case, I believe — and my doctor thinks — because I have XX chromosomes as well, that has something to do with it, and hormone sensitivity to estrogen has caused it.’
Earlier this month, a person bearing a striking to Lemieux was seen out and about wearing men’s clothing – minus the prosthetics and wig.
A neighbor identified that person as being Lemieux. They were later seen driving in and out of the apartment block and walking on the sidewalk later on.
‘He wears prosthetic breasts extremely infrequently,’ the neighbor said. ‘He puts the breasts on to teach, occasionally when he goes for a walk or when the cops visit.’
A law enforcement source also says that officers – both uniformed and plainclothes – do regular welfare checks at her apartment.
The neighbor claims that usually, Lemieux’s outfit is completely unmissable, having started going out in public as a woman in May 2022.
‘I was driving past. You can see the breasts from so far away when you’re driving,’ he said. ‘He put the whole outfit on and just walked up and down Guelph Line — no bags, just walking. Everyone slows down because you can’t believe what they’re seeing.’
Lemieux was quick to respond to such allegations: ‘I can’t tell you who that is because I don’t want to bring anyone else into this. I don’t want that person being thrown all over the media, but it wasn’t me.
‘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.’
Asked if she would ever look different out and about, ‘I guess if I took my wig off or took my makeup off,’ she replied.
‘But I would still have breasts. You can’t hide them. People online making comments are basically body-shaming,’ Lemieux explained.
‘I identify as a woman. Female. She/her,’ Lemieux said when asked specifically about her sexuality.
‘My whole life, I’ve been identifying as male. I’ve been looking like a male. When I decided to embrace this other side of me around age 39, this presented itself,’ she said.
‘Intersex people can have a mixture of those two different sets of chromosomes. It can be something they don’t even know about. It can show up in other physical attributes at birth so it can be more obvious or less obvious, depending on the person,’ Lemieux said.
Students and parents have raised concerns about Lemieux’s attire, saying it ‘mocks women and the education experience’.
Until now the board has supported her decision to dress that way, and in December it emerged students had been threatened with suspension if they took photos of her.
Lemieux has made headlines multiple times and began transitioning from male to female in 2021.
In December, David Menzies, a host with the right-wing Canadian news outlet Rebel Media, spoke about Lemieux being removed from a theater, in an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show.
Menzies also discussed the incident in a November episode of his show. At the time he said of Lemieux’s presence at the dance recital: ‘This is so gross. This is so disturbing. This is so despicable.’
Students have shared videos of Lemieux in other schools while she recovers from a foot injury, showing her walking with crutches and sitting beside a student who appeared to be vaping.
The district has now warned that students are not allowed to take pictures of anyone in school unless they get their permission – and could face suspension if they do.
Along with complaints over the alleged suspension warnings, parents claimed ‘Lemieux gets a personal escort [and] protection’ everywhere she goes after the district received a series of bomb threats.
