Telstra can fire sex romp girl

It was with dismay that I read that Telstra could sack someone for some activity they undertook outside work hours. Is this a fair and reasonable punishment? Would they sack someone from being a scientologist or a jew? I know many people when I worked there who attended lunch time bible meetings. But a more interesting and perhaps sexist observation can be made. Why would they sack the woman, and not the two men? I mean it says: She was accused of sexually harassing another female employee by being naked in the hotel bath with two Telstra male workers. Telstra also claimed she dishonestly answered questions during a subsequent company investigation into the incident. Unfortunately the article makes no mention of the fate of the male employees. I would take a less dim view if the men were also sacked.
