(LifeSiteNews) – It was nice to see Canada’s prominent role in the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II this week, because these days the world’s 2nd largest country usually makes international news for the radicalism of our woke regime.

For the past few months, for example, stories about suffering veterans, disabled people, and the impoverished seeking state-sanctioned (and funded) assisted suicide have shocked even impeccably progressive commentators abroad, turning Canada into something of an international cautionary tale. And of course, there’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a figure of great fun for more serious statesmen.

The latest story to attract international attention is the viral photos of a male shop teacher at a high school in Oakville, Toronto (Canada’s largest city) who has decided to identify as a woman. In order to make this point to his students, the Manufacturing Technology instructor is calling himself Kayla Lemieux and has outfitted himself with enormous prosthetic breasts that bulge out literally a couple of feet and are…well, see for yourself.

Not only is his costume a grotesque mockery of femininity, it is also a very real safety hazard in a shop environment. Not to mention to the moral health of the high school students who are, of course, expected to play along with this.

Over at The American Conservative, Rod Dreher posted a column titled “Trans Mega-Ta-Tas In Clown World Canada,” noting that: “We are ruled by insane people. I mean that literally: we have created a society in which everyone has to bend over backwards to accommodate the insane.”

As Reduxx, an online feminist magazine, reported:

‘The kids here most definitely don’t think its normal… but realistically we can’t say anything’ one student said on Twitter, ‘Last year, the teacher was a man. I don’t think the school can fire him.’

Which is true—the Halton District School Board, like most Canadian school boards, have bought completely in to gender ideology. Sure, they probably didn’t expect this. But it was all baked in when they decided to outsource their brains to extremist, unstable ideologues.

In fact, the Halton District School Board has gone so far as to explicitly protect these sorts of displays:

The HDSB is committed to establishing and maintaining a safe, caring, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning and working environment for all members of the school community including students, staff, parents/guardians and community members who identify as, or are perceived as Two-Spirit, Queer, trans*1 , Non-Binary, Intersex, and those who are questioning their sexual orientation and/or gender identity(ies).

In short, a teacher’s right to wear massive prosthetic breasts outweighs the right of children to learn in an environment in which their teacher does not intentionally display enormous fake nipples—according to the website that sells these things, the largest can weigh up to 35 pounds. (What a sentence. Welcome to Canada in 2022.)

According to the Toronto Sun, the school will be “standing behind” this teacher, with the board president Margo Shuttleworth praising his performance:

Protecting any persons “gender rights” is “the stance the school board is taking and they are standing behind the teacher,” said Shuttleworth…The school board says it sees her simply as a good teacher. “This teacher (who teaches shop) is an extremely effective teacher,” said Shuttleworth. “All the kids really love being in the class.”

Because gender ideology has been institutionalized, school staff can essentially get away with whatever they want as long as they declare themselves to be transgender, or non-binary, or what have you.

School boards will stand behind these teachers (and considering the photos of that shop teacher, that’s probably the safest place to stand.) The only question now is: Who is standing for the students?
