Gillette seems to have landed themselves in one of the largest advertising shitstorms in recent memory. Their latest virtue signalling flop goes on a lengthy, painful monologue about how the "misbehavings" of men having gone on far too long. It features all your favorite characters, toxic masculinity, mansplaining, cat-calling, "boys will be boys", painting an overall picture that modern men are pieces of shit and need to start doing better.

Now, I'm not sure if it's excess soy in the office coffee machine, or the extensive diversity training going on at P&G, but never have I seen a business stray so far from their customer base and completely miss the mark as spectacularly as they have. The customer relations team clearly took an extended Christmas break. A simple survey, or target market analysis would have forewarned them about the media tsunami they were about to sail themselves into.

This is what happens when you pander to a child. That screaming, screeching, emotion driven, reason-less, blue haired child, who has never spent a day in the real world. The one who shouts loudest, moans about how terrible the world is, and that she's owed it all. The one who most people simply ignored, let it kick and scream, make it's scene and avoided aslong as it wasn't them getting dragged into the courtroom on a #metoo claim.

The child who also just happened to be a massive minority. The one who doesn't speak for the masses and the one who certainly doesn't speak for men. You see, Gillette missed the pendulum swing, they missed Trump being elected, they missed Brexit, Bolsonaro, Trudeaux's current approval rating, yellow vest protests. They missed the signs. While the rest of the world was getting tired of that screaming, moaning child and started sending it to it's room, Gillette thought it's was the right time to feed it Candy.

I can just Imagine the boardroom discussion, filled with SJW hires, thinking they we're about to receive a world of praise for leading the movement against the big bad patriarchy, and all it's oppression's on woman, but instead were greeted with a viscious backlash and a valuable lesson, insulting and demonizing your customer base is probably not good for business.

They tried to justify it. Firstly as, "not all men", you know, the tagline libtard's use to shit all over if you used to try distance yourself from rapist and wife beaters. Secondly as, "well if you're offended by it, it probably mean's you". Meaning if Gillette/Venus put an ad together about Toxic Femininity featuring gold diggers, hypergamous cheaters, divorce rapists and attention whore's as their fundamental premise they wouldn't have batted an eyelid? Sure.

It's no secret big business has been fueling the movement to feminize society as much as possible and to put as much power in the hands of wahmenz. I can only hope that this is the beginning of a more consistent resistance to the Globohomo Clown world fuckery, hopefully reddit takes some notes too, but more importantly, hopefully we see more men being men. Men giving Gillette the middle finger is about the most positive sign of society wide masculinity I've seen in years.

I'm glad I ditched Gillette for Harry's a few years ago. "Go woke get broke" is become more accurate every day; hopefully that is a sign that this social justice insanity is ending. I hope they lose so much money from this that no other company ever even considers pandering to the feminazis especially when all their customers are men. I can only imagine the outrage if Tampax put out a commercial that shamed women for hypergamy and single motherhood.

Definitely a change in that age group. I'm 20 so I'm pretty much between millennials and the whatever you want to call the teens.

There's a clear love and support for transgender and other sexualities, like homosexuals, and less of a focus on social justice. I'm not a sociologist so I can't pin point it, but I think feminists and snowflakes are from backgrounds where everything was given to them, whereas all the teens today are going through horrible home and school environments (divorce at home and disrespectful, shitty teachers and systems at school) so they don't really care about starting all this bullshit conflict, but rather being supportive of the underdog, like trans people, for example.

Gen Z was raised by iphones and ipads and is even more addicted to social media than our generation.

46 upvotesKeffirLime [OP]1 year ago

Agreed, what that also means is they're exposed to information at a palms length.

I think they've witnessed a much stronger backlash towards feminism.

When it first hit the scene everyone was tip-toe'ing. Gradually as they became more radical, naturally opposition spawned.

Gen-Z witnessed a much stronger, more thorough, well reasoned backlash, hence possibly more conservative.

28 upvotesmax_peenor1 year ago

My eldest calls them Gen-Zyklon. He's a millennial that has siblings that span both generations. At some pointt the dissonance between observable reality and what schools/media/etc causes a rejection response. This is why the left is desperate to set an almost Orwellian narrative now and construct legal (men-with-guns) apparatus around it. It's a foot race. Can they do it before the generation gets into a position of physical power? If not, then they really may become Gen-Zyklon and guess who gets put on the box cars?

Protip: this is what happened after the reds completed their conquest of China--it wasn't just nationalist teachers that got to shovel rocks until they died of starvation and exhaustion.

Practically every communist revolution, after being set into power, took the most ideological amongst the movement, lined them against the wall and had them shot.

Their usefulness was over (useful idiots), and they were prone to disillusionment the quickest when the promised wonders of socialism didn't arise. Hitler did the same thing to his revolutionaries in the Night of the Long Knives (National Socialism and International Socialism not being so far apart other than the details in propaganda messaging).

The late Yuri Bezmenov, former KGB, had some good insights to this in some videos produced in the 80s, they're on Youtube.

Anecdotally, with lots of Gen-Z family, I'm seeing far more conservative behavior.

You're making an assumptive leap that smartphones=Liberal, which is not necessarily true.

2 upvotesorganicfluxx1 year ago

Totally agree. The gen z also have zero will to comprimise or engage with external viewpoints since they simply form groups with those they agree with and resent out groups.

6 upvotesYakatonker1 year ago

"The Matrix"

Those kids are totally fucked. The kids think the metaphysical environment of a digital space is equivocal to a physical real world environment, and most of them can't tell the difference because all of them are communicating in a digital space. Ergo they equate events reported online as true, or mostly true.

So technically if someone gamed all the platforms, say through a desire to acquire absolution in power through a concerted movement towards, say a one world government, they could in essence program the of the populace with social ease towards this regression.

Other social media anomalies

  • increased suicides, more then anti-depressants, but miraculously not banned
  • increases homosexuality in a platform populace from under 10%(none user population) to nearly 30%(user population), because of the isolating effects amongst same sex, and a pattern of behavioural regression in a digital space
  • visceral negative feedback loop encouraging extreme psychosis and narcissism, some 70%+ of Facebook is "selfies"
  • reaction social platforms emit is envy, which is destructive where jealousy emotes in people a regression towards self improvement, envy being inverse

The patterns are even worse for reproduction, where social media halves it in a user population. The outcome is literally a digitized variant of depopulation.

Maybe it would be different out on the coast.

1 upvotesKeffirLime [OP]1 year ago

From what I can observe their definition mostly falls along the lines of simply being anti-left/liberal/sjw.

It's less that they believe in conservative values and more that they despise the radical left.

1 upvotesorganicfluxx1 year ago

Its really hard to see what's going on. Personal experiences are not representative while social sciences and polls are corrupt.

It's hard to believe young people hate the left in general since they are at the bottom soceoeconomically and will benifit from wealth redisteibution. I personally find that it's a minority of future incels and mgtows who have been forced to face red/black pill truths that are around. These guys are not the future. Since they generally lack a belief in group identity.

2 upvotesKeffirLime [OP]1 year ago

From what I've seen, their parents/households are not necessarily too stable. Marriage as a functioning institution seems to have failed their parents.

All the while society has been moving away from strict religious principles and a monogamous marriage as standard practice towards a more open, competitive market colored with Alphas, Beta's, Hypergamy, Sluts etc.

Growing up in such an environment has exposed them to more aspects of human nature, unwatered down by culture than ever before. Add in smartphones/social media with a constant supply of insta sluts/chads, love island, kardashians etc and who knows what you'll get.

How aware this makes them of Red Pill truths, mostly consisting of guys brought up on fantasies is yet to be seen, but I certainly think more than ever before.

21 upvotesdestraht1 year ago

There is definitely something about the effeminate man with a beard that causes rage to well up inside of me. I was in conservative Eastern Europe at the time I first started reading man rages about them and I didn't understand it. Then I got back to California and went into a hipster cafe with these bearded nu-males. I was enraged but just living in my head. I left soon the cafe soon after and nobody was the wiser. There is just something about them that makes me want to body slam them. For some reason they piss me off even more than the hand swooshing, prancing fairies.

If your around these people a lot then it far too easy to conflate beards with rage fuel. Beards aren't pussy in themselves. Perhaps just not optimal strategy.

11 upvotesTFWnoLTR1 year ago

I kind of get what you're talking about. I feel like a beard is something that is earned through proven masculinity.

Since were basically apes with a few extra mental capabilities, simply having physically apparant masculine traits should be enough. Maybe that's why it's somewhat disturbing to see an obviously unmasculine male sporting a beard. Its like a woman with a beard. It just doesn't belong there.

It's probably a bit enraging because your natural inclination is to challange a bearded wimp to display some form of masculine trait since none are visibly obvious. Like his existence with that beard is some sort of insult to manhood unless proven otherwise. Maybe back in the cavemen days a bearded nu-male would have been challenged to sparring and upon losing his beard would have been cut off his face in order to humiliate him into conforming with the social order, or at least working toward building himself up into a man as it grows back.

All speculation, obviously.

8 upvotesdestraht1 year ago

Yes I think something along those lines. I grew up in the Bay Area and so I've had a lot of gay friends but they had ambient masculinity or could at least summon it if necessary . Its the feminine men that get my blood boiling. Their not doing the environment or themselves any good being that way. Its probably half plastics and soy. Then they've created an identity around abnormal hormonal levels. So to be honest its enraging to be around men who are incapable of defending anything.

Nothing. It's about placating the leftist outrage mob so they don't ruin them. When the left boycotts something, all the cultural giants line up and coordinate.

When the right "tries" to boycott something, there are no cultural mainstays that coordinate. It's just normal people.

Their greatest strength has become their weakness. For a long time the SJW progressives made bold claims without flinching and so people yielded. They convinced many people in a shallow way but more than anything they convinced themselves. They can know longer discern between reality and ideology. This will cause them to continually overreach.

Now they feel simultaneously invincible and more vulnerable than ever. They feel that they have arrived at their destiny but they are fueled only by perceived victimization. They can only feel strong for about forty seconds after confirming to each other that they are in fact strong. Then they feel like shit again.

So bring it on. Tell me again all of the dick things that I've done and how my very existence is a threat to decency and civil society. Blast it from the roof tops five times a day like a Muslim prayer. That ought to win a few more over.

Safety razor is your answer. Pick up 100 blades for ten bucks, handle for 10-15, congrats, now your shaves cost as low as 10c for your first 200 shaves (I don’t typically use a blade more than twice, but if you’re paycheck to paycheck and want to pinch pennies, you could manage three unless you have wiry hair). Just go slow when you’re getting started, no need to add some new fishgills into your jaw.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 1 year ago

'Safety' razors, a name that is now a kind of misnomer in the era of disposable-cartridge 5-blade Rube Goldberg razors, were so-named because they were safer than a straight razor – e.g. safer than putting a naked blade right up against yer moneymaker.

You can absolutely use them in place of a 'regular' razor, by which I assume you mean disposable. You don't need to use a full brush and cream with them, canned cream will do just fine in a pinch or for convenience. One pass across the face should do it. If you happen to already own a buzzer of some kind, a first pass (down to as little as 1/8th of an inch) across hair that hasn't been shaved in over a week will save you some hassle, too.

But do be careful. I have friends with small but noticeable scars on their jaws because they didn't take proper care to learn not to cut themselves.

The blade should always be placed exactly perpendicular to the direction of cutting (visualize the line of motion; the blade itself should make a perfect T against it), or you will cut yourself. Edit: this gets particularly tricky depending on the angle that your beard hairs grow right up against the jawline, because you want to cut any given hair against its grain. Even worse if you get careless and snag your lip as you do a pass down or across your mustache.

With a safety razor, making a mistake is less costly than with a straight razor. Also, small nicks are nearly inevitable – I always bleed a little bit, but this washes right off and within a minute, you can't tell you nicked yourself. Consider that normal.

I’m a stickler back from ‘shop safety’ rules, so I keep the paper wrapper the razor comes in. I just put it back in the little plastic container each pack of 5 comes in.

When it’s time to swap to the new razor, I put the old blade back in the paper and tape it once all the way around with a bit of gaff tape. That ain’t cuttin’ anybody ever.

Then I bin it. As for metal recycling, there may be a way, but it’s a negligible quantity and I’m going safety first.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Schick is a separate company from P&G (Gillette's parent company) so you could go to using their products if you don't want to use a safety razor. Growing up I was taught they were second to Gillette but I'd assume they're still pretty good.

11 upvotesCharlaton1 year ago

Get a good German handle for about $30-50 on Amazon, I got a Merkur back in 2015 and it’s still great. For the razors themselves, Personas are really good. Astra are pretty sharp but don’t last as long in my experience. Derby is fine, I’ve heard good things about Feather in terms of sharpness but haven’t tried them and don’t recommend them for your first razor due to ease of chopping yourself up.

The trick is to basically let the weight of the razor do the cutting, you don’t need to pull it down.

1 upvotesogkushinjapan1 year ago

Astras don’t work well on coarse beards and definitely only last one shave per blade (use both sides in a shave).

The child who also just happened to be a massive minority. The one who doesn't speak for the masses and the one who certainly doesn't speak for men.

While the rest of the world was getting tired of that screaming, moaning child and started sending it to it's room, Gillette thought it's was the right time to feed it Candy.

They are in denial. They don't understand that baseless shaming tactics are no longer effective. That more and more men are waking up and acting in their self interest, and that even many women are rejecting this farce (the oft cited 52% of white women voting for Trump's usually used as an epithet against them, but for the sane masses, it is a ray of hope).

President Trump is just the beginning.

Black men seem to be figuring some stuff out and pretty soon with their help I'll be able to have an opinion without being a piece of shit.

One agreeable black guy at the table and suddenly life is fun again and the white women are smiling at otherwise offensive comments. One throaty black laugh and I'm living in a previous generation past the rainbow towards the promised land of a country that I've dreamt about. One black man can per four white men can turn it all around and in a pinch one per six can be used without losing too much effectiveness. The numbers work out.

Don't get me wrong, I'm proud of being white but there are definitely some obstacles to overcome. There have been times when a harpy was really getting on my ass and I thought that life could just be easier if I had a different skin color. I can't change certain things but we can lift up the black men and distribute their SJW nullifying presence around or we can let our communities be done over like what was done to them.

With their help we might be able to get out of this piece of shit.

Also, they put Hodgman in a suit. People saw him and said "Yeah, I want my computer to wear a suit. He looks professional. That's the guy I want to trust with my personal information and files. Not this surfer douchebag."

"I can make videos. I can edit photos! What can you do, PC?"

"Oh... I can make excel spreadsheets and word documents..."

It has been something mostly cornered in the tech industry for the last ten years, where I have witnessed hilarious fuckery after hilarious business-ending-events. They are now expanding their reach as newly minted marketing tards are looking for jobs and the old school retires from the older companies. Second, the cognitive dissonance which plagues female participation in corporate planning and governance is a close second in the race for Chief Executive Lulzcow. Behold: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koPmuEyP3a0. The very first word of their description is 'bullying.' The second is harassment. I will agree that men do plenty of the latter.

They knew it would trigger everybody and increase brand awareness. Gillette basically had nothing to lose, they’ve been getting raped by Dollar Shave Club and Harry’s. What’s the worst that could happen? The worst thing that could happen is that they drop that commercial and nobody cares.

The fact is, we’re just advertising for them by pointing out everything wrong with the commercial. And they packed it to the gills with shit to bitch about.

Important thing to remember: most companies, key word most, do not give a single fuck about politics, social issues, whatever beyond whether they can make a buck off it. The companies who truly do usually don’t have the luxury of staying in business very long. The more they get you to say their name, the more brand awareness they have. The more they can come back later on and say “we’re sowwy pweeze buy our pwoducts we changed” and you probably fucking will because it’s human nature.

Stop giving them attention. You (and even myself, in even pointing this out) are getting cucked by them to make them more money to defend your opinions that you don’t need to defend. If you choose to be a “bad man” in Gillette’s terms, what the fuck is a razor company gonna do about it? If a kidnapper walks into a Walmart to buy a Gillette(TM) Mach 5 to go slash the throat of a kid, they will be overjoyed to take the money and buy a BMW with it. They truly do not care about virtues.

I can just Imagine the boardroom discussion, filled with SJW hires, thinking they we're about to receive a world of praise for leading the movement against the big bad patriarchy, and all it's oppression's on woman, but instead were greeted with a viscious backlash and a valuable lesson, insulting and demonizing your customer base is probably not good for business.

I would not be surprised if outrage was the intetion all along. That's how it works these days, Gillette gets a ton of free exposure because of the this crap and they're stock price went up. People need to boycott Gillette and Procter & Gamble as a whole to really have an effect

Guys, why are any of you buying commercialized razors at all? Use a safety razor, much cheaper and I feel proud that I can shave like grandpa and never I have to pay 7-20 dollars for replacement razors again. Buy the blades they are like pennies on the dollar. You get 100 razors for 20 bucks, will last you for a while.

My mom used to use the term " boys will be boys. " when I played video games too long with my friends. Seeing how it's being used now just disgusts me.

But if I rephrase it in their language the only acceptable term is " Boys should be girls."

Yeah their shame tatic doesn't disgust me anymore.

"Boys should be girls."

In the 1980s on SNL, there was a skit with Phil Hartman as an obstetrician; in it he was being interviewed because of his astonishing record - all women he's helped give birth were all girls, no exceptions.

Starts out as mildly funny to creepy. He did surgery to all the newborn boys to make them girls; because they were girls in boys bodies, born wrong.

Too bad I can't find that video. BUT...

I did find a transcript.

"Girl-Crazy Obstetrician"

https://snltranscripts.jt.org/86/86nobstetrician.phtml

That skit would be praised if it aired today. There's a lot of ads in that link; just run it through Google and read as text only (which I what I did).

I've given them and their large competitors the finger for a long time. They made shaving very costly. Even the most expensive razors suck. Their business model is intentionally a scam.

Buy yourself a safety razor with a heavy head, and you can buy good razors for it at like .10-.25 a piece. And you only need 3-5 blades of theirs crap. More blades isn't better. One very good blade is. And you have different choices of blades which work better for different types of hair. Once I relearned how to shave I've never looked back. For less than the price of a new Gillette razor with a 5 pack of cartridges, I bought a safety razor and 200 blades. Learn how to do a hot lather and a hot towel, get some quality soap and aftershave, you're gtg. These blades also last multiple shaves, but I still toss them and use a fresh one each shave because they're so cheap. I spent more money on shaving for one year with "modern" shaving products than I will the rest of my life with classic stuff.

Depends where you look, it's no secret Google leans way left, so I'm sure their algorithms are built as such. The actual YouTube video has tons of hate.

I think anonymity is big factor in that, and I'd argue more representative of honest feelings. Most people are too afraid to put skin in the game and openly oppose liberals on Social media when their name is attached to it.

YouTube/Reddit, they lose nothing, so they fire away.

Make no mistake, Google, Facebook etc have made no secret about which agenda they're pushing, so you can be sure they go to great lengths to shape the media you receive.

I don't care about the reactions to this commercial as much as I care about the facts. So I have to correct one idea that's being thrown about recklessly here - that some diversity hires are behind this commercial.

I have a family member that was on the advert team at P&G that worked on this commercial. The whole team is nothing but M7 MBAs. These aren't diversity or SJW hires behind the commercial - these are people with post-secondary degrees.

Not a stretch at all. It's an international problem. They don't want Gilets Jaunes to spread. It's already spreading in to the UK and many other European nations. They don't want Yellow Vests USA to start becoming a regular thing. We can't be having any funny ideas now, can we.

Gilette put their balls on the line? XD The brand is going nowhere. They may take a temporary hit but I doubt it will affect them much in the long term.

Exactly. Gilette didn't put their balls anywhere. They were just used by a PR NGO think tank to promote slanted globalist propaganda. Propaganda by Edward Bernays is a great book that I think you would enjoy.

That's not true. Did you read it on TRP or Roosh or something?

I know lots of hot girls who complain about getting cat called and hit on all the time. Do you not hang out with girls? They always bitch about it to eachother. It's one of the most socially acceptable forms of humble bragging in woman-culture.

In short, no one besides the perpetually miserable blue-hair gives a fuck about this shit anymore.

That certainly would hold true, which is why women make such great consumers, their emotional wiring allows them to be swayed much easier than men.

Men tend to be more logical, hence seek value when purchasing instead of good feels.

1 upvotesredpill771 year ago

It's comforting seeing the backlash. As they say, follow the money. And men's true priorities will prove to be a strong barrier for hopefully some time, until there's a spreading social movement for men to virtue signal with the products they buy.

Gillette is just trying to utilize current backlash against men to promote their products. These days many in corporate marketing are women.so the ads make sense. Their bosses are pussies and they approve of such scripts.

I see the problem with the ad - making men look bad but I dont think there is any attack on masculinity. The ad focuses on bad behavior. Getting annoyed at this ad makes you look weak. It makes you look like you need validation of being strong and masculine. Instead be your best self. FUCK Gillette and othef corporations. You know what you are. Go your own way. Do your own shit. Have the confidence in yourself. Have a vision.

Having said this, I think the bad rep against men has to be stopped and I will support any ads that uphold masculinity and TRP ideas..
