Gillette: "Shave Toxic Masculinity"

By HonkpilledMaster following x   2019 Jan 14, 10:28am 7,672 views   118 comments   watch   nsfw   quote     share    


Complete with "Guilty for being Male" messaging. Time to stop using Gillette products.

Gillette is embracing the #MeToo movement in a new digital ad campaign aimed at men, the latest message from an advertiser attempting to change societal norms.

The ad, dubbed “We Believe,” opens with audio of news about the current #MeToo movement, bullying and “toxic masculinity.” A narrator then goes on to dispute the notion that “boys will be boys,” asking, “Is this the best a man can get? Is it? We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We can’t laugh it off, making the same old excuses.”

I refuse to eat meat because it fuels Toxic Masculinity... but I'm still so healthy and strong!

The conversation on this has made me realize something very important about myself. Previously, I noticed a certain pep-in-my-step but couldn't really describe it any other way. After just hearing about this controversy, and some serious introspection, I realized that I have rape-step. The best path forward that I can think of is to just accept it- that I was born this way and it's not my choice. I must oppress simply be being. Now everywhere I go I know that I am just being myself... and that's OK. My rape-vision? Well, that's completely fine by me too. I need to believe in myself, even if it means sacrificing everything.

OMG. Have you seen the "gillette fusion führer edition" image? Please don't take offence. I just found this one particularly funny as a mockery of Gillette; it's certainly showing you-know-who as an example of bad. I don't want to make the thread NSFW, so here's a link.

Memes only work for the just side of the argument. No matter how cleaver the picture seems.


Funny.

But isn't "right or wrong" and what's "just" determined exclusively by your emotions ? Or the emotions of people on Fox "news."'

It was just a commercial. Get over yourself.

The backlash kind of shows the accumulated resentment against the mainstream constant shaming & blaming of anything vaguely masculine, the blatant disregard of any male suffering, contrasting with the minute by minute coddling of poor "girls", the constant demand of more 'equality' translating into pussy passes and lowering of standards, the #meToo 0-due-process bullying and/or lynching, etc, etc...

It ain't funny anymore.

APPLETON, WI—Expressing disbelief at her romantic partner’s dramatic behavioral shift, local woman Emily Kittleson, 30, told reporters Friday that she had not expected her boyfriend’s attempts to recognize and curtail toxic masculinity would eventually turn him into a “weepy little pansy.” “Christ, I know the dope is trying to be conscious of the effects of his words and actions and to be more open and honest with his emotions, but there’s got to be a limit,” said Kittleson of her boyfriend Shane Magnusen, 31, whose efforts to reject toxic masculinity have begun to irritate her as she claims he has evolved into “a fragile fucking flower about everything” in recent weeks. “Of course I’m happy for social progress and all, but this ineffectual shit is not what I signed up for. Instead of suppressing his emotions about major issues in his life, he cries at sad commercials. Our fights used to be him screaming at me for a few minutes and that was it, not great but not terrible. Then last night we get into an argument that somehow turns into me nodding and making comforting noises while he talks about his strained relationship with his dad until well after midnight. Like, come on, I don’t have time to indulge this self-centered crap.” Kittleson was also compelled to interrupt her statements twice, groaning and rolling her eyes while responding to text messages from Shane regarding their couples’ therapy appointments later that week.


It's a joke, but it's not a joke. Any relationship in which the man turns SJW is doomed. Women are disgusted by weepy men.

Just as we suspected. The horrific Gillette ad was beamed in from the SJW LibbyFuck Immense Hirsute Lesbian Twat-0-shpere! Will these depredations of white manhood never end?

Now, to make up for it, Gillette, how about an ad with two amorous, bush munching, beauteous lesbians going at it, and the freshly shaved Gillette hunk plunging the sacred balm into each of them in turn, converting them to wimpering, cock begging heterosexuality!

I bought a huge $50 multi pack at my local CVS the other day. Then as soon as I paid for it, I said I want to return them.
Then I bought Schick.

Fact: even Walgreen brand double edge razors are so good these days, you can dry shave with them in your car at stop lights if your chick won't do it for you while you drive - or if she's too busy sucking your turgid member.

Further up this thread scoops mentions it. No negative shit from barbasol so far as I have heard. I also head in here last night:

I wonder if they expected this to cause mass division among their customer base? It seems they've been losing market share for a while now, and maybe they see the writing on the wall and realize that they can't stop this recent rise in aggressive competition in razors which is eroding both their market share and margins. If so, this could be an attempt at a hail mary. They figure if they do this, they will cause division into 2 groups - those who really really love them, and those who hate them. Some customers will be lost, but the fanboy group could become VERY loyal, and less likely to be lost to future attrition to the shave clubs, and also be willing to endure a price hike.

I don't know what their margins look like, but sometimes a small bump in price can easily double the margin. i.e., if they sell a razor for $1.00, but make it for $0.80, they profit $0.20. If they slightly raise the price to $1.20, they now profit $0.40 - double. Doubling your profit means you can cut revenue in half but still make the same money. This could be a ploy to increase loyalty to make their customers more willing to endure price hikes.

...Or it might just be a big mistake by letting their marketing team get a bit too lefty.

Good observations.

Here's an idea. We all know "Soyboy". I must have made the Soymilk industry scream...

Let's coin a new term for "Leftist Male Allies"...

Gillettes.

It's worse than any boycott could be.

Does she change the gillette razor after each leg?

Legit question, if her leg is 5 times as large, does it produce 5 times the leg hair or the same amount? Obesity wouldnt give her 5 times the follicles.
