I just don't understand the marketing strategy here. Literally no one was asking for your opinion on the matter, why take a stance at all. Just shut up and sell razors.

Perhaps Gillette will hire you to run their marketing department.

Bullying men is the safe way to advertise -or so they think.

if they want to be sexist and generalize men as a bunch of bbqing, woman-beating bigots i'm sure plenty of people will spend their money elsewhere

Promote anti bullying, anti sexism, anti violence and promote just being a good guy in general.

MW deems this offensive.

I get it though. Not every dude is a sexist Neanderthal, so the ad is a bit much and the ‘toxic masculinity’ angle is dumb. Throw that on top of the fact that Gillette has probably been promoting ‘ideas’ of masculinity for years that they now are railing against.

Howeverrrrrr the ad is pretty well done.

Just dumb for any company to politicize their marketing, especially during this time when parties are so divided.

Is being a good guy and not being violent and harassing people really political though?

That should probably be something I’d call bipartisan.

All hell would break loose if a major corporation targeted things that women, or --god forbid-- black people are stereotypically doing.

Didn't you hear, 90% of college females have been raped, and women make $0.70 to mens' dollar, and a bunch of other lies.

Let's not ignore the fact of the scenes of men acting "poorly" are majority white and the men acting "properly" are majority black. They even have back to back scenes where a black guy steps in to stop a white guy from "harassing" a girl.

Imagine if Starbucks came out with an ad showing those killed by illegals and them stating to build the wall.

Having a white dude stop a black guy from harassing a chick wouldn't go over as well.
That whole thing is politically correct/safe, because it's targeted at straight men, with an extra sprinkle of BS on the whitey.

An ad promoting positive behavior has you upset. That much is true.

Because the whole ad is bull****. Nothing they're doing is even that bad.

A bunch of boys running around being rambunctious.

Somebody getting cyberbullied which is definitely not just a male thing, girls can be just as cruel to other girls.

Two boys wrestling around in the backyard while making men look like mindless drones.

A boss clearing up what one of his employees is saying.

A guy telling a girl to smile at a pool party. (Thank goodness the black prince was there to save her)

A guy seeing an attractive girl on the street and trying to approach her. ( Once again saved by a black prince) Also it is totally misogynistic to ever approach a girl anywhere, that's harassment.

Does a company selling shaving products have to tell you to not be violent in order for you to not be violent?

Of course not. I already addressed that.

Doesn’t mean it’s bad or worth crying over like you snowflakes are doing.

I'm not sure you understand why people are called snowflakes. Are any of the masculine men torching down Gilette HQ? Are they claiming irreparable psychological damage because of the ad and that it must be taken down? Or is it just a bunch of guys saying "This is fvcking stupid, screw Gilette."?

Be honest, if Gilette made an ad making fun of the cuck lifestyle, you'd be deeply offended.

So there I was, putting on my rape shoes, and practicing my sexual harassment pickup lines this morning.
I just got done cyberbullying my coworkers. It was time to shave, so I yelled at my wife to smile because I ****ing demand it, while pinching her arse right after she told me she didn't consent to it.

So putting on the shaving cream and thinking; "How I can get my son into a fight at the next BBQ", I replaced the worn Gillette brand Mach3 and began to chant "boys will be boys" as I started to shave.

Suddenly my daughter burst into the bathroom holding her phone. As I began to mansplain to her why she isn't smart enough to know my shaving time is MY time she showed me the new Gillette ad.
I now realise how my every view and behavior I've ever held dear was wrong. I'm calling in sick at the toxic masculinity factory today and registering with every left leaning organisation requiring a registration.
Thanks Gillette, I was lost, but you knew the way.
