The backlash grows. This is the beginning of the end to this brand IMO.

" if it continues down the current path this campaign will be remembered as nothing short of an all-time marketing blunder."

strange how the left are keen to victimize (white) men, but don't want to actually talk about the biggest reason boys grow up to be assholes - that is, the abandonment of traditional mother and father family roles

the left have been systematically destroying the family for the last 3 decades, and now shocked at the results. we now have the data to show kids who grow up in broken homes have a higher rate of crime and violence

but fk it, the more the left, celebs, big corps lecture to the silent majority, the more people will revolt and vote for trump again in 2020

i agree this is the new trend, but radical feminists/left need to tread carefully in calling all men rapists and alienating a whole generation of males. we are now entering the age of robotics, including robots that provide solutions to comfort and sexual needs, and we are already seeing this in Japan. Women may end up going too far and their value among men severely diminished

Good point. I think a lot has to do with woman choosing to be single mothers.

I read a stat somewhere that said 70% of incarcerated men come from single mother homes.

Perhaps Lady Gillette should come out with an ad saying you can't be both a man and a woman?

The goal of the left has always been to destroy the traditional family. Anybody worth anything in this world knows that family always comes first, ALWAYS. To hell with the collective, and to hell with an all powerful government running our lives day to day from cradle to grave.

yes there is a distinct statistical correlation between the introduction of single mother welfare and rise in single motherhood

when women began able to replace the role of the male as the provider with that of the state, the incentive to retain a male to raise a kid was removed

no where is this more apparent than in black communities, where prior to advent of the welfare state, non-marital births among blacks was lower than white communities. it took 3 decades to go from 25% to now over 70%

traditional family values are held principally by conservative voters, the left aren't having kids at anywhere near the same rate

the only way the left has been able to hold voter parity/power is through third world immigration, importing impoverished groups of people who reliably vote for more socialist programs and bigger government

but this can back fire on the left, if trump gets his border wall and illegal immigration falls, the democrats will lose a big chunk of their voter base. if democrats knew the wall wouldn't work, they wouldn't be working so hard to block it.

then add back in my point above about radical feminists being replaced with robots, and this further increases the sexual market value of conservative women and compounds the difference in birth rates replacement bw left and right

we are living in a very interesting time, what is happening today with this outrage culture is setting us up for some very big long term changes, and i don't think anyone on the left is thinking beyond the immediate prestige of virtue signaling today

Not sure you can compare the two ad campaigns really. The Nike/Kapernick deal was all about standing up for what you think is right (no matter how delusional it might be), so in a round about way it had a good message. I even posted in that thread here on this forum that the Nike stock would rebound quickly which it did.

This Gillette nonsense is more like EA/DICE with BFV for instance, interjecting this politically correct mindless drivel where it's not needed. EA/DICE paid a heavy price for their actions in sales of the game/stock price, so it will be interesting to see what happens here with Gillette.

If anything, it's given me an excuse to stop overpaying for razors and try something new like Harry's.
Go for Harry's. I've been using them for a year. They're cheaper and pretty much the same quality.

Harry's is great. I used to buy it until the CDN dropped.

It's a good product and definitely recommend it.

Sorry, but this is all bullshit

The left had been destroying traditional marriage? Fuck off

Traditional marriage has been killing traditional marriage.

Assholes existed loooooong before what you are insinuating. Ironically enough, you can look back at the 50s as a staple of misogyny. Back when America was #MAGA. The nuclear family. It was all bullshit then.

Traditional marriage is a joke and one of life's biggest lies. It's not a left vs right issue. Marriage is one sided and men have little to gain from it.

Back on topic this is a well written opinion piece on the ad

Jokes on you.... I had a shot-gun wedding when 22.. divorced and said never again... dated many many girls... had many serious girlfriends.... @ 39 Meet a girl that stayed with me thru hard times... took a chance and married her...Now we live very very comfortably... Only thing I can say is I sure am glad I'm married... I see all my single buddies and couldn't imagine being single in this F-up society it is today.... ... It's been 14 years...

Honestly I think it's because we were older (33/39)... it's even been proven in the latest stats that divorce is less common as it was due too people are marrying at an older age these days...

I purposefully said traditional family (did not mention marriage at all), this implies traditional father and mother roles in raising a kid - you've gone on your own tangent to conflate this with traditional marriage and then gone and got yourself all upset

Yes it helps to be married to fall into those traditional family roles, but a kid can still have a valuable father relationship without being married

What I saw in this video. White guy grabs his maids ass. Rap video featuring white guy having white girls shake their ass; because that's usually what I picture when thinking about hip hop. White guy corrects a woman at a board meeting. Black guy corrects white guy who is kicking it to some chick because he was being offensive. So in a nut shell, toxic masculinity = straight white male masculinity.
