Ontario transgender teacher sparks controversy by wearing giant prosthetic breasts in class

Last week, images emerged out of Ontarioís Oakville Trafalgar High School showing one of its shop teachers conducting class whilst clad in enormous silicone breasts with visible nipples that extend below the teacherís waistline.

In a statement to Postmedia last week, Halton District School Board chair Margo Shuttleworth said the teacher portrayed in the images is an industrial arts instructor who began identifying as female last year.

Clandestinely recorded by students, images of the instructor quickly exploded across social media, easily making it one of the worldís most visible Canadian news stories of the past month.

One 20-second video in particular has received nearly one million views. Circulated by an American podcaster, it shows the teacher demonstrating the use of a chop saw while gingerly ensuring the large breasts do not get caught in the machinery. ďI donít remember my shop teacher looking like this,Ē reads a caption.

1. I'm sorry, but that is not a transgender issue. That's a person being ridiculous issue.

AND it gives ammunition to those who discriminate against transgender people.

26. OMG yes, totally forgot about her.

Those oversized silicone boobs usually donít wear well. Something this teacher is probably going to experience.

I just hope some students arenít distracted by those things and cut their finger off Ö or worse.

4. A delicate observation I've been making recently and may be limited, rather than generalized...

But, I've observed a tendency for those in transition to be fairly extreme in "announcing" this via their physicality, as though once they move forward with their transition it is both freeing and pronounced. I'm not criticizing, just observing as it does attract often overwhelming attention so I'm assuming that is not undesirable. A case in point is the young cashier I saw last week working in a northern Colorado Costco (not Denver, but still college town) who would have gotten extreme attention regardless merely because of the extreme and very theatrical makeup. I was checking out in the line directly next to hers (assuming the pronoun) and just paused a moment to watch the reactions of those in line--mainly older couples. They were seemingly understatedly polite, which I was glad to see, but were saving their befuddled looks for those behind them in line. Surrounded as this community is by more rural communities, I'd suspect this was not a common encounter for many of them and the makeup would have been extreme for anyone wearing it, but they were seemingly curious, yet restrained and polite.

A good thing? Yes, of course. But I can't help but be curious if the attention that such a dramatic outward appearance invites--with the unusually heavy and dramatic makeup for any daytime setting-- is actually welcome and intentional at that juncture.

At any rate, I was happy to see appropriately tolerant reactions in this community.

BTW, I had not seen the picture of the shop teacher's "breasts" prior to posting this, just the commentary. My heavens. She is definitely trying to make a statement above and beyond, but what?...

6. The real problem here is being overlooked


Thatís a miter saw, not a chop saw.

A chop saw is for cutting metal, and you can clearly see sheís got a piece of wood in there.

9. Excuse me but what?

I'm sorry but as a transgender person this is absolutely embarrassing. Like I can understand if you want to wear fake boobs but something this caliber is pretty much like I need attention. Like if you want boobs just go get surgery like I will eventually. Jesus don't make them like this big... I have no idea what this person was thinking

10. Yeah

As a fellow Trans person, I'm forced to concur. That's.......a bit much. I used to wear falsies at the start of my transition, but they weren't anywhere near that big. They should pull her aside and tell her to find some smaller, less....noticeable ones.

11. Yeah

I mean I get it. Breast enhancement surgery is not cheap and I'm saving up for it right now but like this is not going to help like our communities cause it's just going to give more ammunition to the fire at us

12. It already is being circulated

in right-wing sources, of course. Hopefully, it is dealt with promptly and respectfully.

14. It is being dealt with

The school board chair has emphasized that 1) the teacher is an excellent teacher, 2) is free to express herself, and 3) will be protected against any backlash.

21. Some weirdo who is also trans wears sandbag boobs. "They're all like that!!1!"

Notice how all social and racial minorities have to apologize when one of their own looks bad? Thatís what I feel like, and itís not fair.

22. I mean why would you want them that big?

My mom used to have size G breasts and I'm not even joking about that and her back was always in pain. Like why do you wanna cause back problems for yourself with fake prosthetics?

20. The students will certainly remember that shop safety lesson.

I didn't read those were the teacher's everyday wear.

My shop class was all boys. The girls took Home Economics. Our shop teacher was a bald conservative guy. He wore a long wig one day to demonstrate the dangers of long hair in the shop. I'm not sure he was telling the boys with long hair to tie it up so much as he was mocking those with long hair.
