    Not a teacher.

    Hmm. Well I would say that the opposite would be either "weakling" or "pansy" or something like that.

    PS Of course, if you wanted the antonymy to work both on interest in sex and on gender, then you'd need something radically different - "wall-flower" or "hausfrau" or "maiden aunt"
