Perhaps not, but it would be just as inappropriate, and as you
pointed out it can happen. My point was, leave gender out of it.
It is inappropriate regardless of who says it, or who it is said
Hopefully the admin who was involved was disciplined privately in
some way. It doesn't have to be public, and therefore might not
be known to you. But making comments like those you described is
harmful to students and also opens up the risk of lawsuits, and
if I were that person's supervisor I would certainly want to make
certain it would not happen again. There would not, however, be
any reason to make that public, just as I would not make it
public if it were a teacher. It's a personnel matter, which
should be kept private. Only if that employee chooses to tell you
him/herself, would you find out about the details.
