I would say yes.

In the same way that, if a college student came on to a professor, it still would not be right for the professor to sleep with the student.

A film production is very much about a bunch of individuals coming together to complete a shared project.

An educational enviroment is about a bunch of individuals of one status - a status that marks them as underlings - being instructed by a seperate individual of a different and more elevated status.

They're not the same thing, and comparing them as though they were the same is disingenuous. The dynamics of a film set are far more multifasceted and multi-directional.

If it comes out that Whedon was the aggressor in the situation, I will consider his actions to have been unethical and parasitic. But until that time, as far as I'm concerned, the people involved were colleagues, having sex of their own choosing and for their own reasons.

I'm NAYRT, for the record.

But Whedon was still in a position of authority and power relative to the rest of the people working in the movie. That's the point of the teacher analogy: like a teacher, the director of a film is in a position of authority, and a significant power imbalance exists.
