What's the difference between the meanings of following sentence pairs:
I like being obeyed by my students.
I like to be obeyed by my students.
I don't like being laughed at me.
I don't like to be laughed at me.
I don't like being asked irrelevant questions.
I don't like to be asked irrelevant questions.
Could you please tell me about the "being+past participle" form related to gerunds? Is it the passive of the -ing form ? If so, how would the sentences look like in active form?
