If people think it's a hot 28-year-old female flirting with her horny 16-year-old student, it's widely acknowledged that the young male was probably a willing participant in the affair. But if it's a 30-year-old guy who flirts with his 16-year-old female student, then 'dude's a creep.' Is it just me that believes this is true?

Look, don't get me wrong, I get why this teacher's in hot water. But I read the comments on here and thought it was a bit of a double standard.
While it's a double standard in some perception....the legal reality is still the same.

My parents neighbor lost her teaching job for naughty texting and who knows what else with a 16yo.
