To students at a US primary school, she was Mr McBeth. Now, after undergoing a sex change, 71-year-old Lily McBeth will return to the classroom as Miss McBeth.
Despite criticism from parents, the board of Eagleswood Elementary School in New Jersey is standing by its decision to allow McBeth to resume working as a substitute teacher.
After two hours of public debate and a private meeting with McBeth and her lawyer, the board took no action on calls by several parents to bar her from returning to the school where she taught for five years before becoming a woman.
"It was magnificent," McBeth said afterward.
"You saw democracy in action."
He has become the ugliest female I have ever seen. Her looks will scare the children and they will require psychiatric help.
There was an engineer at a company I used to work for that had a sex change operation. He left for vacation a man and came back a woman. Problems occurred when she could no longer use the menâ€™s room and the women in the company refused to allow her in to the ladiesâ€™ room. She too came back incredibly ugly.
