  1. Pankaj Tripathi has created a niche for himself in Bollywood and now all of us are his fans. People not just praise him for his acting but also for how he is as a person. He is someone who believes in fighting for women’s rights and you’ll know this if you have heard him speak in his interviews. His recent suggestion on gender equality is something that should be implemented by everyone. In his recent interview with IANS, Pankaj said that boys need to be taught that no gender is superior. View this post on Instagram He said, “Boys need to learn right from the beginning that no gender is superior or inferior. There was a time when I survived solely on my wife's salary and I see absolutely no harm in doing so. My wife and daughter have impacted my life in the best way possible, to see the existence of such a large gender disparity in our country needs immediate attention and change”. He also said, “I feel that parents put all their energies into grooming and teaching their daughters how to behave themselves but when it comes to boys, it's not given the same importance. In today's education, I think the inclusion of feminism is a must for all young boys, too”. View this post on Instagram Recently, he also suggested creating a film-friendly set-up in his village near Patna where he was born. He said that it’ll be great to set up a film set-up which is well connected to the city and people from Bollywood can come and shoot. View this post on Instagram He said, “A film-friendly ‘mohalla’ or colony is possible with a little bit of funding from the government to create a film panchayat at a well-connected village near Patna, at least on a trial basis for now. The area can hence be marked by filmmakers all across the country to shoot any urban setting scenes they need to for their film, with the maximum help in the form of a solid support system provided by the locals there.” What do you think?

  2. Employment figures demonstrate the mountains that still have to be moved to achieve gender parity.
  3. Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia Deshmukh are considered to be one of Bollywood’s most popular couples as they’ve been giving major couple goals. The two have been together for almost 19 years and have maintained a relationship of equals in all these years. View this post on Instagram P&G’s virtual #WeSeeEqual Gender Equality summit got the two on board as they have been advocating gender equality and can give insight to others who need to understand it. Proctor & Gamble managed to get many panellists including Sania Mirza, Faye D’souza, Ritesh Deshmukh, Genelia Deshmukh, Shobana Kamineni, Falguni Nayar, Anupama Chopra, Dr. Huma Masood, Laxmi Narayan Tripathi, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, and many more. P&G is trying to make a change by having people like Genelia and Riteish speak on an important topic like this. I was lucky enough to get in touch with the two and get an insight as to how they maintain a relationship of equality and respect. Excerpts from the interview: Genelia and Riteish, you both have been an inspiration for many couples as the two of you only ooze positivity. Whenever we see you, there’s a realization that you two have a relationship of two equals. In the 21st century, we are still struggling with gender inequality. How did you both manage it at your home? Genelia DeshmukhThere’s definitely inequality in general and this is something that you see every day. In the film industry, I feel it’s elevated. When I was getting married, people told me that this is it. I, then, also felt and now, I feel it if you should do what you want to. Today, if I want to get back into films, my husband will be extremely supportive. Everything just boils down to the fact how men have been raised and Riteish comes from a family where he has been taught how to respect women. I never had to face any issues on the home front. This is not forced respect. I really hope I also manage to raise my sons like him. When we became parents, he was doing his bit by taking care of the diapers and everything. His friends used to say that, ‘how could you?'. He always used to say, ‘he is my baby’. It’s a big thing among men and Riteish never paid heed to such things and this what makes our relationship one of equality. View this post on Instagram As Genelia mentioned that your friends were surprised to see you do household chores and take care of your sons. How did you handle this notion because it somewhere does bring in the aspect of toxic masculinity? Riteish DeshmukhThat was not the conversation with friends. It was more about how did you manage to do all of it because they didn’t have kids by then. They probably had a notion about not changing or using diapers but when they became fathers, they realized that they wanted to be part of it, themselves. It’s important for people out there to realize that it’s absolutely okay and necessary to share the load with your wife in everything that she does. Fathers can’t breastfeed the child but he can change the bottles or diapers. Fathers need to be mothers and mothers can also be fathers. Hats off to you. I have been wondering that you two have been with each other for nearly two decades now, there must have disagreements and downs in your relationship. How did you take care of not invading each other’s space and respecting one’s individuality? RiteishIt stems from mutual respect for each other. We might have had disagreements but they can’t cross the boundary of respect we have for each other. There’s a thin line called respect which can easily be breached. If you are aware of your limits, it can easily be handled. Beyond a certain point, things can be disrespectful. A man has no right to disrespect his woman and vice-versa. If the two of you manage to attain it, it’s a relationship of two equals. I believe a conversation can resolve everything and we have maintained that respect in our relationship since the inception. It’s been 19 years and you need to find newer things. We just started walking at the Worli-Sea Link with our masks on and we communicate in silence. We are just walking together holding our hands. View this post on Instagram GeneliaI think it’s true what Riteish just said and I always say that every relationship is a work in progress. It will have its new phases but it’s important to respect each other’s opinions and this is where most couples have the nastiest arguments. It’s all about moving on but also it gave us a new perspective. Communication has never taken a back seat in our relationship. As we are talking about the respect aspect, there’s something called the male ego which has been problematic in many relationships. What do you have to say about this? RiteishEgo basically stems from self-respect and also from a misplaced notion of where this self-respect needs to end. It’s important for people to understand how to use that ego in a good way. I feel as long as we talk about men and women being equal, certain things to be retained like be chivalrous to your lady. But, things like that ‘you can’t go in the kitchen, break that notion’. There’s always a middle ground when there are disagreements, try to stick to that and it’s a key for a successful relationship. View this post on Instagram Before we leave, I wanted to know your take on men’s mental health as MensXP is trying to burst that bubble. RiteishI believe mental health shouldn’t be categorized as men’s mental health or women’s mental health. It’s just it needs to be addressed. This is where the male ego comes to play and men think that they can’t share it with their families. In a nation like India, people think ‘yeh toh pagal ho gaya hai’. Things will change only with conversation and we need to be okay with seeking professional help. View the full article
  4. Halle Berry sits down for a conversation and explains the harmful effects of having gender stereotypes
  5. Princess Diana narrated Charles' reaction on Hry's birth as 'Oh God, it's a boy and he's even got red hair'
  6. Only 18% percent of adult women in Pakistan have an active bank account compared with 51% men, according to SBP
  7. Ashley Tisdale recently hosted a small gender reveal party and the gender of her baby leaves her in tears
  8. 'Girls wear pink and boys wear blue'. 'Girls are not supposed to be loud' and 'boys cannot cry'. We have all heard these stereotypes and more, most of us grew up adhering to them and now, we are working towards breaking them. In todayâs fast-paced world, more and more people are shattering gender stereotypes both professionally and in the society they live in. Men are becoming more emotionally open while women are crashing through the glass ceiling. It is important to realise that the next generation needs a society free of any walls and this video showcases exactly that. Bandhan Bank recently released a video which shows us what every expecting couple should think like. The video stars a pregnant couple where the father is planning their childâs future, from swimming classes to their first drink to the bond he will have with him/her. Even in the 21st century, many couples still hope to have a son who can 'carry on the family name'. The society we live in has more constraints for women; what a girl can do and cannot do is based on stereotypes. The way the video describes the dreams that to-be father has, we all assume he is hoping for a son as well. The video surprises you when it is revealed that he actually is hoping for a daughter and plans to do all those things with her, as she grows up to be a confident young woman. Bandhan Bank, through this video, is spreading the message of equality and change which is one that is needed in the chaotic world we live in. The messaging is loud and clear as they stand up against gender stereotypes and we are standing up with them. View the full article
  9. Snapchat is back in the news guys, and this time, it's because of a new filter that's quite hilarious. It's the new Gender Changing filter that can make you look like a girl or a boy. Even if you don't actively use Snapchat anymore, you should still check it out. It works surprisingly good. But that's not the main story you're here for, is it? Well, a guy decided to take it to a whole new level by setting up a Tinder account for a female version of himself which he created using the filter. Yes, it sounds like a dumb idea, but it 'she' ended up getting a ton of likes and matches. © Twitter Jake Askew said he decided to set up the account because it looked 'unreal' to him. But little did he know that a lot of folks on Tinder would agree. He apparently got over 1,650 likes on his profile, and he ended up matching with 200-400 of them. WHAT?? As you can see, he set up the account by the name of 'Jess', and marked her as a student at the University of Derby. He noted that a lot of guys approached 'Jess' with rather indecent proposals. © Pexels He ended up sharing this whole fiasco on Twitter, and the tweet has since been liked by more than 6,000 people. This Snapchat filter is clearly trending right now! Go, give it a try if you haven't already.
  10. There's some good news for Tinder users in India as the dating app is going all the way for gender inclusivity. Earlier one could only choose the options for 'man' or 'woman' but as per the latest press release , Tinder is now adding more options to its list for people who identify as transgender or even gender-neutral. © Tech crunch The initiative is meant to celebrate all the genders and allow everyone to have a smooth dating life. India's oldest LGBTQ organization, 'Humsafar Trust', was on the panel committee which actively recommended this change. The chairperson was quoted explaining the whole idea behind this initiative: “Tinder's new initiative celebrates the diversity and pluralism and truly represents the idea of India. For numerous Indians who identify as trans and non-binary, this will be their chance to be their true selves online and in person. It gives us great pleasure to be associated with Tinder on this bold move.” This will enable and ensure that everyone gets to authenticate themselves and have a healthy dating life. These options have been a part of Tinder in the US since 2016 and even though we might be late to the party, we are finally there.
  11. Shah Rukh Khan has been hailed as the unrivalled king of romance in Bollywood for the longest time, and he gives the term 'ladies man' a classy boost. He has always been respectful of the women in his life, from his family to his co-stars, and it comes as no surprise that he is one of the most beloved and respected actors in the industry. So, it is only understandable to find fans getting curious about what the actor's stance is on a string of social issues, including gender equality is. © Instagram So, recently when asked about what he thinks of the gender pay gap in the country and across industries, he made his stance on the subject very clear. Khan reiterated the fact that he believes people must be paid for their work based on their talent and merits, instead of deciding the dues on the basis of people's gender. © Instagram While it has been established time and again that King Khan is known for his wit, as he is known for his acting skills and charming ways with his female colleagues, this also comes as a welcome remark for the feminist movement, to have a Bollywood A-Lister voice their stance on the wage disparity prevalent in our society, loud and clear on a public platform. © Instagram He was also quoted as saying that, “women make you think, and make you want to be a better person and for ages, and even now sadly, they do not get the dues or credit they deserve. Often they are served the raw deal, which is unfair for the whole society”. Kudos to the man for being unabashedly himself and calling a spade as one. © Instagram This comes after the announcement that the Lux Golden Rose Awards will use its platform to join hands with the UN's global gender equality movement, HeForShe. The affair is expected to work as a defining moment when the film fraternity comes together to support and celebrate the contributions of the female members of the industry and extend their solidarity. Shah Rukh's remarks are a total winner and we totally agree with what he says about pay being decided on merit and not gender. What are your views on the matter? Do let us know in the comment section.

  13. Apart from being the fittest actor in Bollywood, Akshay Kumar is also known as the most 'macho' actor around. Naturally, when he wore a 'Cashmere Silk T-shirt' meant for women, and nailed the look too, we couldn't help but dig a little deeper and focus on the not-so-obvious lesson associated - that assigning gender to clothes is essentially a flawed concept. Take a look at him looking like the ultimate Khiladi here - in a 'women's T-shirt'. © Instagram Akshay is wearing "Absolute Nirvana" Cashmere-Silk T-Shirt by The Elder Statesman, made of lightweight knit cashmere-silk. It costs around Rs 30,000. © Barney's We are in absolute awe of his salt-n-pepper beard, the best thing about which is that its edge lies in the fact that it's unkempt. For people who still subscribe to the belief that only George Clooney can carry off a salt-n-pepper look flawlessly, take a look here. Akshay does it better and you know it. © Instagram The one sleeve fold plus that jacket casually tied around his waist - urban dictionary should just post this picture under the definition for 'swag'. © Instagram The distressed jeans paired with the black sneakers is doing wonders for the entire combination, and we like that he has accessorized sagaciously by just choosing to go with a pair of aviators. © Instagram Moral of the story: Mr Khiladi's still got it. All of it.
  14. June 2018 has all been about celebrating and accepting people as they are. Pride Month comes with the hope to celebrate rainbow people in the most beautiful way. Because, hey! No matter what your gender, creed, color or sexual orientation is, you are worth it. You are amazing and the world needs to just accept it. While for some, the month is all about gathering the courage to step out of their stifling closet, for others, it is an opportunity to embrace their true self and meet like-minded people. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer, Pride Month is a time for people to celebrate their individuality. As this amazing month comes to an end, we have curated a list of progressive content that applauds the LGBTQ community: 1. Loev India is a progressive country for sure, but when it comes to gender, roles and duties are fixed. We hardly acknowledge the existence of genders beyond male and female. Homosexuality is considered to be a taboo. You try to support it and hundreds will come up with an explanation of how it's unnatural. 'Loev' is a daring, sincere and honest attempt at addressing the subject of same-*** relationships. Something that you don't see most makers addressing. Sahil and Jai's journey is beautiful in every manner. It makes you realise, that the emotion of love knows no boundaries and it doesn't come with norms made by the society. 2. Sense8 It is one of the very first sci-fi dramas that explored gender and sexuality on the small screen and was loved by millions. Within no time, this Netflix show gathered a massive following among the LGBTQ community, and what makes it extra special, is the fact that the creators are none other than Lana and Lily Wachowski, who are transgender siblings. 'Sense8' follows the story of eight characters that are linked through psychic connections. 3. Queer Eye A must watch, reality show that you can't miss. Start with an episode of Netflix's 'Queer Eye' and we bet you will end up binge-watching it. More than a decade after the original series went off the air, this reboot now has a new set of 'Fab Five' all set to revamp the lives of many individuals. The show is all about how these wonderful gay men with different perspectives change an individual's life for good. You have food and wine specialist Antoni Porowski, interior designer Bobby Berk, grooming consultant Jonathan Van Ness, fashion designer Tan France and culture expert Karamo Brown, doing the unimaginable. 4. Marvels' Jessica Jones 'Jessica Jones' has done what no one actually could! Jeri Horgath is not only just a kick-ass lawyer but she is also (probably) the first lesbian in the Marvel universe. She is smart, she is hot, and can be arrogant and ruthless when need be. Jeri's proud of who she is and doesn't let anyone put her down. Time to take a cue from her! 5. Orange Is The New Black Putting it all out there once and for all, Netflix's original 'Orange Is the New Black' is an edgy show that keeps you hooked. It not just portrays the LGBTQ community in the most liberal manner, but also makes an interesting narrative that you just can't miss. With characters such as Piper, Alex, Big Boo, Nicky, Poussey, and Suzanne, this show talks about the problems and complexities faced by this marginalized community. The show is both dark and hilarious at the same time. 6. Schitt's Creek Well, if you haven't heard about this show, you are missing out on a great dose of laughter. The highlight of this CBC's show is that it goes beyond the usual lesbian/ gay relationships, and has a pansexual lead character. You hardly come across shows that represent the pansexual community in such a beautiful manner, and David Rose is an amazingly written character. And as David says to Stevie, it is the wine and not the label that matters. 7. How To Get Away With Murder Headstrong lawyer and her pack of smart students. Check. Murder and drama. Check. Acknowledging the existence of bisexuals in the most smooth manner, ABC's 'How to Get Away with Murder' shows the pairing of Annalise with Nate and Eve in the most brilliant way. 8. Everything Sucks! Have you watched Netflix's 'Everything Sucks'! yet? This 90s show offers a syrupy dose of nostalgia with its punchy Nirvana references that is being loved by millennials. The story revolves around the students of Boring High School. It is also a new-age coming out story of a tomboy. Watch this little gem, and you will understand that sometimes, coming out to oneself too needs courage. 9. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Titus Andromedon's in the house! Out of all the LGBTQ characters on-air at present, Titus has to be the one who's the proudest about his identity and revels in it. Watch, watch, watch for a hysterical ride. 10. Grace & Frankie A show which effortlessly showcases how every time an LGBTQ subject is addressed, it doesn't necessarily need to be dramatic, intense or over the top. Keeping it light and simple, you are introduced to the main characters. For decades, Robert and Sol have kept their love a secret, hidden from the world. No longer though, for they are ready to come out and tell their wives Grace & Frankie the ultimate truth.

LEFT: Robert Pattinson reacts during a news conference at 70th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, May 25, 2017; RIGHT: Australian actress Mia Wasikowska arrives at the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California, US, February 26, 2011. REUTERS/Regis Duvignau and Danny Moloshok/Files BERLIN: Hollywood stars Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska said the current reckoning with power abuses in the entertainment industry has opened a door to new movies that subvert traditional gender roles, as they presented the feminist Western Damsel Friday at the Berlin film festival. Pattinson ? the Twilight heartthrob turned independent film actor ? said the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct felt like a watershed moment both on and off screen. "I think if you feel that you?ve been wronged and you feel like you?ve been bullied into silence, it?s one of the most awful feelings in the world," he told reporters after the screening of Damsel in competition at the 11-day event. "It?s kind of amazing when any kind of dam breaks and people feel like they?ve got the numbers to say ?you?ll be safe to say whatever?s happened to you?. "A lot of these kind of conversations kind of mirror what we?re trying to say on the screen." ?Not how love works? Pattinson plays Samuel, a dim-witted cowboy in the Old West who is searching for his old flame Penelope (Wasikowska), his purported fiancee who he says has been kidnapped by an old rival. Samuel hires a pastor he hopes will marry them and the pair set off on horseback to track down his heart?s desire. But as they come upon the prairie homestead where she is supposedly being held captive, Samuel instead finds a scene of domestic bliss with Penelope, far from being a damsel in distress, happily married to the other man. Samuel, first seen as a hopeless romantic and dashing saviour, is exposed as something of a bumbling stalker, while a furious, rifle-toting Penelope accuses him of destroying "the first time I?ve ever been happy". "I guess with Samuel, he just has a kind of extremely skewed idea of consent. He?s just completely delusional about it ? obviously it?s pushed to a massive extreme," he said. "When someone has said no to you and because you think ?I?m in love with you, the only thing that matters is the fact that I love you so all of my behaviour has to be excused?. It?s like ?no, that?s not how love works, that?s not how reality works?." ?Projection of man?s desires? The Polish-Australian Wasikowska ? who also divides her time between big Hollywood productions such as Alice in Wonderland, television series like In Therapy, and smaller budget movies ? said her character represented a new take on the old-fashioned Western heroine. "I just really like that we were led to believe a certain thing of this character and then halfway through the film, it gets flipped on its head and all the expectations we have of this woman are very much a projection of the man?s desires," she said. "I think it?s part of a growing kind of consciousness of changing the way that women are seen. "The more you see empowered female characters that have a really strong voice or who know who they are or are challenging expectations that are deeply ingrained in culture, the better it is." Wasikowska said she thought her character meshed with the current zeitgeist, in which seismic shifts in *** and power dynamics are becoming palpable. "I think it?s amazing ? I?ve been in Australia for most of the last year and watching it from afar," she said. "The Respect Rally (for women?s rights) in Sundance (last month?s Utah-based film festival) was the first thing I?d been able to go to and been a part of and that was really amazing to feel the energy there and the connectedness of the people. "I think it?s great, and I think it?s going to be a really significant change." Damsel by US filmmaker brothers David and Nathan Zellner is one of 19 movies in competition for the festival?s Golden and Silver Bear top prizes, to be awarded on February 24.
  18. Canadian flag. Photo: File OTTAWA: Canadians will soon be singing a new tune after parliament passed a bill to change the lyrics of the national anthem to make it gender neutral. Only one line in O Canada was amended, from ?True patriot love in all thy sons command? to ?True patriot love in all of us command". But it has caused quite a stir. ?It?s about two words,? Senator Frances Lankin told reporters. ?But it?s huge in terms of one of our major national symbols, the anthem we sing with pride about our country.? Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the move ?another positive step towards gender equality,? while feminist author Margaret Atwood, who has been pressing for this since the 1980s, tweeted her thanks to lawmakers. Others decried the new lyrics and vowed to continue to sing the older version. ?Disappointed to hear the Liberals changed our national anthem. Somethings (sic) shouldn?t change,? said MP Bob Saroya in a Twitter message. The late MP Mauril Belanger had proposed the change to the English language version of the anthem. Belanger was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, shortly after his party, under Trudeau, took power in 2015. The proposal was passed by the House two months before Belanger?s death in 2016, and late Wednesday the Senate added its support for the bill. Now it needs only the governor general?s signature to become law, which is a formality, but a date for that has not yet been set. ?It will receive royal ascent in due course,? Sabrina Atwal, spokesperson for government House leader Bardish Chagger, told AFP. The French version of O Canada, which has not been revised, was originally commissioned by Quebec?s lieutenant governor in 1880. The English version followed in 1906. In 1914 the phrase ?thou dost in us command? was changed to ?in all thy sons command?. A verse was added a decade later. There have been several attempts in recent decades to further amend the lyrics of the song ? which only officially became Canada?s anthem in 1980 ? but they all failed largely due to the entrenched opposition of Conservative lawmakers. Today the anthem is sung at the beginning of sporting events and in schools across Canada at the start of classes, often mixing both French and English versions.
  19. Varun Dhawan has managed to constantly hold a berth for himself in news headlines — be it voluntarily or involuntarily. Sometimes it happens because of certain scenes in his movies (remember the uproar about the forceful kiss in 'Judwaa 2'?), while sometimes it happens because of a careless gaffe or two on his part ("Nepotism rocks!" - remember? Ouch). Well, we hope he is learning the art of being in the news for positive reasons. At least as far as his fashion choices are concerned, his latest outfit is indicative of that. © Viral Bhayani We love a good slogan T-shirt. Those have a charm of their own. Now add to that an ACTUAL message that is deep and meaningful, and is pertinent to the current socio-cultural climate. Result? A strong sartorial moment that automatically gets a huge thumbs up from us! © Viral Bhayani Now you might be wondering what is so special about this T-shirt here. If we go into the specifics, it's neither the colour of the T-shirt nor the message that it carries. It is, in fact, the combination of that colour and that message. A 'macho' man is wearing a pink T-shirt that says 'Honestly don't care'. Isn't that heartwarmingly poetic? This is what we need right now, given the fact that this country is still lagging behind when it comes to having an evolved outlook on masculinity. A popular opinion that unfortunately still does the rounds is - 'Pink is not a manly colour'. What does that even mean, honestly? Pink, like any other colour, is a shade on the spectrum. What does it have to do with masculinity anyway? © Viral Bhayani Staying true to the message on the T-shirt, Varun has stuck to a look that is evolved and nonchalant. The super relaxed faded pair of light blue jeans has been paired with white chappals that look comfy AF. The outfit is just perfect to step out and grab a coffee with your buddies - probably over an equally evolved discussion that hovers around not giving two hoots about what the society (read: people who need to get a life) says about what you should or should not wear. © Viral Bhayani Well done, Varun!
  20. The Google logo is pictured atop an office building in Irvine, California, US, August 7, 2017. REUTERS/Mike Blake/Files SAN FRANCISCO: A former Google engineer fired after he asserted in a memo that biological causes were behind tech industry gender inequality sued his former employer on Monday, saying he was discriminated against as a white man with conservative political views. James Damore last year caused an uproar in Silicon Valley and beyond when he wrote the internal memo, which later became public. Google said he had perpetuated gender stereotypes and fired him in August. In the months since, his firing has become a popular cause among right-leaning US bloggers, and Damore hired a Republican Party official as his attorney. Damore and David Gudeman ? another white male former Google engineer ? filed the lawsuit as a proposed class action in Santa Clara County Superior Court in California. The lawsuit alleges workplace discrimination and retaliation. Google ? a unit of Mountain View, California-based Alphabet Inc ? said in a statement, ?We look forward to defending against Mr. Damore?s lawsuit in court.? According to the lawsuit, the company has failed to protect employees, especially white men, from workplace harassment related to their support of US President Donald Trump or conservative political views. ?Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males,? the lawsuit said. The lawsuit also accused Google of maintaining a secret blacklist of conservative media personalities who are not allowed inside the company?s offices. The lawsuit requested an injunction barring Google from discriminating against individuals with conservative political views, as well as for unspecified compensation. Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai said when Damore was fired that portions of his memo ?violate our Code of Conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.? Gudeman was fired in December 2016 after a confrontation with a Muslim coworker on an internal Google forum, according to the lawsuit. The co-worker said on the forum that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had targeted him for being a Muslim, and he expressed worry about his personal safety, the lawsuit said. Gudeman responded with scepticism, saying the coworker had provided ?zero evidence? for the claim and suggesting the FBI may have had justification. A human resources employee later told Gudeman he had accused his coworker of terrorism based on religion, and that he was being fired as a result, the lawsuit said.
