Why do they call this rape and do not call it rape when female teachers have sex with their students?

If I didn't know Montana was in the US, I would have thought this ruling to be out of India.

Well, Jim, a quick Google search for "female teacher charged with rape" brings up cases this year in Utah and Massachusetts, and another in Tennessee from 2011. Your premise is incorrect. And, I hope you were not attempting to minimize the seriousness of the Montana case and egregious behavior of the judge.

We still have a lot of bias towards sexual harassment, retaliation, and sexism towards women in the state of Minnesota. This judge was horrendous, but he said out loud what many others think. This might of happened in another state, but this type of prejudice is still very prevalent throughout our state. Just take a look at the Minnesota Department of Human Rights and their bias. It is not about making our state "ism" free.
