AIBU to think there is more to this than identifying as Transgender

A transgender teacher in Ontario is clearly trying to sexualise themselves to classes of teenage boys?

It's disgusting and infuriating. Why is this person allowed to wear those huge fake boobs with nipples on show?

Accuse me of being transphobic, I do not care. This behaviour is filthy and these men are dangerous.

I think every school in the UK should be asked what they would do if a male turned up to work dressed like this.

I’m sick of all this rubbish now this is obscene end off. But we mustn’t hurt the little darling snowflakes wokes must we. If we or any one went out like that especially in front of children we’d be lynched.

I'd love to know if their stance would be if a female member of staff turned up with a giant fake visible penis

Or just massive tits, no bra and nipples showing through their top....

Don't forget, "bring your whole self to work"!

Most of us just want colleagues who just bring the professionally competent and vaguely socially capable aspects of themselves to work.

Oh wait, it’s already happened. Congratulations on being so progressive though.

Regarding the cycling shorts, i guess you could view them as short legged version of leggings (which would generally be acceptable for a naturally penisless woman to wear) - and i would expect in this day and age that shorts are generally acceptable wear in warm weather. But somehow cycling shorts just seem inappropriate for either gender but especially if you are tucking a cock into them - but i expect that part of his thing too.

As for the tits - if a woman was so naturally endowed (apart from her unlikely to be a teacher and more likely to be specialist film star/an extra on eurotrash) i'd expect her to wear (by choice or necessity even) appropriately supportive undergarments, and i'd expect the construction and weight of fabric required to adequately constrain a set that size would also be impervious to nipple breakthrough except on the nippiest of mornings. Fuck knows what he thinks he's doing going tits and dick swinging.
His argument could be that he is a woman and these are his breasts and you would never demand a real woman have a breast reduction (regardless of whether they are natural or enhanced) and the dress code (or apparent lack thereof) likely doesn't stipulate that a woman must wear a bra either.

He's definitely not making any effort to pass as a woman but trying to stand out as a trans activist.

I hope he is a troll either trying to extrapolate to the absurd the whole trans acceptance thing or trying to get himself sacked and get a big discrimination payout but the fear is he may be real.

Parents refusing to allow their children in his class would probably risk being sued for discrimination too, so that probably only leaves them the option of withdrawing them from that school completely. They may have to resort to the old fashioned option of angry townsfolk with flaming pitchforks running him out of town (as often happens in the Simpsons).

With any luck and his clear disregard to workshop safety he'll likely turn up in a miniskirt and thong one day and get his lady-penis entangled in some sharp or rotating machinery 😱

If in Canada the legal system is anything like it is in the US, then I imagine the school are trying to avoid being sued for wrongful dismissal by this individual, as there presumably isn't anything in their contract of employment to say, 'you must not wear enormous fake boobs to work'! I imagine that in private the school authorities are not at all happy about it.

We are now in the position where we’re defending a few peoples perverted position in their attack on normal positions on decency with no regard on the effect it will have on our kids. It is the freedom of the few being able to attack the standards of the many. This is what the perversion does.

I have no idea if this is true but it wouldn't surprise me. Bill C16 means the school are now backed into a corner. There are protests outside the school now. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

What with this and this article in the times today www.thetimes.co.uk/article/1c01ac90-3a90-11ed-84dd-c16384999350?shareToken=60057f659e554f87d8b7fb78db7b88a0

Children in schools are being groomed not only to adopt trans identities but fetishist behaviour is being normalised.

And we are called transphobes for pointing it out.

Yep.

It’s all about groups of men who are obsessed with fetishes trying to draw children into their world. Schools now have to choose between abandoning safeguarding of children, or upsetting the men with fetishes, and they’re choosing to abandon the safeguarding 😔 We need to look at why. Presumably adult men have more power and voice then children.

Meanwhile violence against women, particularly in sexual contexts, continues to rise. Could this be linked to how boys are brought up? Shown violent porn on school buses, women presented as sexual objects there for titillation in the classroom, etc?

I think there is more to this than meets the eye (and those nipples would have your eye out if you got too close). This person is on some sort of wind up. Maybe as a pp said there is some sort of employment issue ongoing. I am not sure about the theory they are an anti-trans activist. That would have already come to light if that was the case-lots of Twitter folk will have been digging madly to find out more about this teacher.

Whatever it is, I feel sorry for the kids having to put up with this.

The motives of this particular individual are irrelevant. You have no way of knowing if they are genuinely trans or taking the piss. Self ID prevents anyone from making that distinction, someone is trans if they say so. Doubting this person's sincerity is transphobic, I'm sure you didn't intend to be.

How does a law and culture which permits people to take the piss without being challenged actually help people with gender dysphoria? I would argue that it allows bad faith actors to be celebrated whilst they make a mockery of the struggle of people with gender dysphoria.

Most schools don't allow staff to wear leggings, at least in the UK. You might get away with it if you war long smocks or are teaching pe that day but generally that would not be allowed.
Cycling shorts I've never seen anyone even attempt it.

I'd like to think this is not real but as someone who recently sat next to a highly sexualised trans woman in a 2 hour meeting I'm not so sure.
They spent the whole time twirling and flicking their hair, crossing and uncrossing their legs, pouting, jiggling tits , oh and retouching their make up.
I don't know any woman who acts like that in real life. They didn't make one useful work related contribution.

I think some of the biological female and even male teachers and even students should come into school with ridiculously large prosthetic breast and see how long that would be allowed?

I wouldn’t be surprised if this is come conservative hoax. We could end up with video posted on YouTube on how they managed to get away with all of it by claiming they were trans.

Well quite. The only definition of a woman is feeling you are one and declaring yourself to be so.

And if you are not believed (regardless of how outrageous your position is), it's those not believing you who are in the wrong.
