I have not seen the commercial on TV except for in "news" stories. I think P&G released this to the web in hopes it would go viral and get the buzz for the brand by creating a controversy and it worked

they seem to have taken a play from the dicks and yeti playbook... insulting their target demographic.... unless they're gonna start selling exclusively women's razers, calling men toxic doesnt seem like a good idea... but what do I know, i'm just a toxic man. lol

They are mad at men, We are growing more beards, buying cheaper Razors, While they have convinced the ladies that the same razor packaged for females is worth more. Maybe they believe that their best market is girly men. Anyone who has ever shaved with a Blue Blade, will understand how much Gillette really hates us.

I won't post the link here for fear of flirting with the forum rules. But Gillette had an advertising campaign in the Netherlands in 2011 that featured women wearing tight blue pants with their backs to the camera and a Gillette logo on the small of their backs. Some of the shots had 20+ women in that attire. Perhaps it is just me but paid advertising like that seems more toxic toward women that the what Gillette is now claiming is included in toxic masculinity.

The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

I think I understand the idea behind the toxic masculinity add.
If Gillette can convince all men to act like women, then the men will start shaving their legs and underarms.
Gillette's sales will triple.
Its brilliant!
Brilliant!

"Incel" = Involuntarily celibate = loser males who want a romantic relationship, but are socially inept, and angry at women for not giving it up.

The word was in this thread's title, but I provided the definition since it may be new to some forum readers.

How's the sharpness life on the DSC blades? I started using Harry's a few years ago and was impressed how long the blades lasted over the usual name brand blades.

It's been about 10 years since I bought a razor. I guess my face screams toxic masculinity. That and at times advertises what I had to eat.

They can't be wanting to sell more women's razors cause women who like girly men probably don't shave their legs or armpits. :mrgreen:
