30. When Van Halen did the song "Hot for Teacher"
There was no outcry (that I can remember). But if they would have done it as a male teacher dancing around for female students, there would have been trouble. (A there should be.)

I, myself, have no problem with this particular double standard. I would have just fired her from the teaching job....and hired her as my production artist.
