    - Gillette doesn’t care about politics or social justice. They knew the ad would start a shitstorm and create free publicity. They knew there is currently a debate on masculinity. They made the ad so that progressives thought it was awesome but conservatives got butt hurt, then progressives got butt hurt that conservatives got butt hurt.
    - I can see how the ad implies that men have always just stood back and tolerated bad behaviour. This is untrue and insulting. Men know how to behave with dignity and the few who choose not to are not tolerated. We aren’t dumb enough to need an ad to tell us to be good people.
    - I’ve never seen anybody say boys will be boys to dismiss bad behaviour. Boys should in fact be boys — what else should they be?

    I wonder what King Gillette would think of all this. He was a crazy socialist. He even wrote a few books outlining his utopian vision.

    Does anyone here even buy Gillette anymore? I have a couple of vintage double edge Gillette razors, but I never use Gillette blades in them. I can't stand the cartridge razors and disposables they have been churning out for the last thirty years.

    Dude you're toxic af. You should just shut up if all you are going to do is throw shade at people. You're the reason why masculinity is being attacked. You think just because you're a man it gives you the right to be a douchebag to people. You're just a boy.

    Back in my home country, people would mock you mercilessly if you shaved your facial hair. Clean shaven people are usually viewed as middle aged politicians and/or perverts. :D

    1: My feelings wouldn't matter that much unless he tried to abuse or seriously harass me. There are things in life that are difficult and no fun regardless of sex. Realize this: most of the men bent on catcalling will catcall wether or not there is any pressure otherwise from society. Liberal's morals will have no effect whatsoever on the horny, drunk guy when he sees an attractive woman on the street. I would also point out that the ad shows almost naked women being harassed. If women want to reduce the chance of it, dress modestly.

    2: Yes, meaning don't stare. Try to look away and forget as soon as you see. Catcalling isn't a good thing, but attacking masculinity as a whole isn't the way to fix it.

    3: See number 1

    4: No. As I said catcalling is not a good thing.
     
  18. You strike me as what is called a "concrete thinker". You're doing exactly what I warned against earlier, which is taking the ad at face value. Don't you understand how art works? That's what advertising is. There's symbolism. Things that are presented in the ad don't mean just what they appear to mean, they represent something else. In this case what the things in the ad symbolize is what I referred to as the war on masculinity. Sure people can have different interpretations. But don't pretend like the ad is just innocently free of any context, free of any political meaning, don't be such a tool
     
  19. Hey lay off @Ra's Al Ghul! After all, "boys will be boys" as they say..... Ra's Al Ghul go watch the Gillette commercial!

    As for @Castielle, stop your Castielle-scolding, I mean woke-scolding. What Ra's Al Ghul has said wasn't very nice, but what he said doesn't match the level of hate that this Gillette commercial represents or that you seem to support and have been spouting in your posts. It's like comparing apples and oranges. I'm surprised at the level of man-hate coming from you, to be honest. Why do you hate men? Stop, just stop. The men on here have had enough. We're just good decent people and we're being victimized. Stop the abuse. You made Ra's Al Ghul go out and get drunk for crying out loud. Poor guy, look what you've done!
     
  20. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Stop Castielle-scolding meeeeeeeeeee!!!!! I'm melting, melting!!!!! My ears splitting from the sound of nails on a chalkboard!!! My eyes burning from the words on the page!!!! Just stop, stop!!! We've had enough!!!
