This is rich.

Rebecca Alvarado, a 2004 graduate of Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School, got mono.

English teacher Judy Neary was kind enough to tell the class about Alvarado's illness and went on to explain that it was spread by "sexually active girls."

When a student asked if "whores" get that disease, the lawsuit (oh, yes, there's always a lawsuit) claims that Neary replied, "Yes."

Well, it's a good thing high school kids are a loving and forgiving bunch, yes?

"People were saying I was a slut because of this," Alvarado said. "Everyone was staring at me like I was a freak. And when I was walking in the hallway, they'd point at me and laugh or say 'There she is. That's her.' It was terrible."
