A caring, welcoming learning environment

Reduxx has more on the Ontario teacher with the giant tits prosthetic:

The Ontario High School at the center of controversy for having a male teaching young students while donning a large prosthetic bust has issued a full defense of the teacher in a newly-leaked email sent to parents.

I wonder what they would say if a female teacher wore a comparably massive prosthetic penis while teaching.

Following the viral news, [Oakville Trafalgar High School] has now issued an email statement to parents in which they defend Lemieux’s employment status in the name of inclusivity.

“We are aware of discussion on social media and in the media regarding Oakville Trafalgar High School. We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate to our community that we are committed to establishing and maintaining a safe, caring, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning and working environment for all students and staff,” the email reads.

Wait.

That doesn’t work.

Allowing that guy to ponce around with fake tits the size of an armchair down his sweater rules out a safe, caring, and welcoming environment for girl students at the very least. It may make some of the male students uncomfortable too, I don’t know, but for girls it’s basically a punch in the face. It’s what you might call a hostile learning environment. I don’t think your average male office drone would be allowed to wear a blimp down his shirt at work, because it would so obviously be an insulting parody of women. Don’t insult our intelligence with blather about a welcoming learning environment.

The school defers to the Ontario Human Rights Code, suggesting that any concerns about Lemieux would be akin to discrimination.

“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.”

That’s another issue – body type or size. How are girls with large breasts going to feel in that school? How are large girls going to feel? Large girls with large breasts?

That school needs to strive better.
