Jimmy Fallon Gender Discrimination Lawsuit

Fair or Not: Discriminating Against Men in the Workplace

We often hear of female professionals being discriminated against, but what if it were the men? Jimmy Fallon has recently been sued by former employee Paul Tarascio under the claim that Tarascio was a victim of gender bias. The former stage manager says that he was replaced by a "totally incompetent woman" who was also "less qualified" in 2010. Other male staffers were also replaced by women and Tarascio attributes it to the fact that Fallon prefers taking direction from women, which is what he claims the show's director told him.

It's totally possible that the ex-employee is just bitter, but if it were true, do you think this is just evening the odds for women? Men always come up on top career-wise (just look at the amount of female CEOs in Fortune 500 companies!) and they even earn higher wages in both male and female-dominated industries. Perhaps discriminating against men is the answer to narrowing the gender gap. However, is it fair?

Exactly. I doubt the author would've even considered this post if it had been about race.

You've posed this question in an overly simplistic way.. that seems like an irresponsible way to generate discussion about a dynamic, nuanced issue.
