These stupid bastards have just cut their own throats with their own razors. The new Gillette razor ad campaign, "The Best a Man Can Get", directed by an obviously talented Australian, Kim Gehrig, is gaining attention for all the wrong reasons. Although a clever production, lambasting the market it is directed at, is not so clever. At first glance, it closely resembles and could easily be mistaken for one of the rash of advertisements targeting the problem of domestic violence (men being the sole cause). One of the most egregious scenes in that campaign was a little girl being knocked on her little derriere by a boy evidently in training to be a future typical male arse-hole exuding the toxicity of his sex.
In the commercial, a procession of what feminists would see as your average toxic males pass before the camera: men in their stronghold of the outdoor barbecue completely off limits to women, intoning "boys will be boys", young boys wrestling like animals on the ground, and a killer of a scene - a boardroom meeting - in which a man puts his hand on a woman's shoulder and says, "I think what's she's trying to say is ....". The poor woman is suitably crestfallen.
Then the good guys are rolled in. These are the types the ubiquitous toxic male should be aspiring to - the best a man can get. And wouldn't you know it, they are mostly non-whites, stepping in to set white men straight. One breaks up the two kids wrestling on the ground. What next, a scene showing the two boys being taught by their new mentor how to participate in the non-competitive activity of Frisby throwing? But no; that would probably be laying it on a little too thick. Another do-gooding non-toxic male is restraining his toxic counterpart from ogling a woman on the street. And just as well too because the man with his eyes bugging out is probably totally out of control, with his libido leading the charge and is liable to attack the woman right there on the street. Then, in a heart-warming change of pace, a man (the better type) is shown coaxing his little girl to look into a mirror and repeat, "I am strong." It would be totally wrong if a boy were being encouraged to do the same thing. No matter if the boy is lacking in courage and self-confidence as many are. Trying to lift the boy's confidence would be tantamount to the crime of aiding and abetting male toxicity.
It seems Gillette is trying to hitch a ride on the coat-tails of the me-too movement spinning wildly out of control. This would make a lot of sense if it was trying to promote a product used by women - Lady Gillette razors, for example, but what is truly mystifying is that Gillette is trying to flog a product used by men.
As conservative columnist, Miranda Devine, wryly observes in the Sydney Telegraph, "[i]t's like McDonalds running an ad telling its customers they're fat.
"Hey you, fatso, your insatiable sugar cravings and hopeless lack of self-control have created an obesity epidemic.
"We can't hide from it. Take a look in the mirror. It's been going on far too long. You're fat. You're disgusting. You make us puke." Miranda has absolutely nailed it. Why would they do that?
The only way this cannot be mystifying is that Gillette may be getting just a little ahead of itself in gauging how much men have been feminised in societies being so rapidly feminised. Does this company really imagine that, what is really just more boring virtue-signaling, is going to convince men to admit to themselves that, yes, they are really just pigs and now might be a good time to change.

So who exactly is Kim Gehrig, the one responsible for this sweeping insult to men everywhere? It would be a very safe bet she is a typically bitter, man-loathing feminist. It eminently suits the agenda of this type of misanthrope to see men completely de-balled. Men would then of course be far easier to control and far less alluring to the heterosexual sisters. After all, "a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle". When the sperm banks are sufficiently stocked, this insult will become a truism.
Here's another example of Gehrig's work if still in any doubt about her agenda: https://vimeo.com/232500998
This is a Berlei bra commercial that harks back to the old bra-burning days. For those too young remember, feminists of the sixties launched a campaign of burning their bras to protest the oppression of the Patriarchy. The unfathomable stupidity of this was that men couldn't really give a shit whether women wore bras or not (not to mention the modern bra was invented by a woman, Mary Phelps Jacob, in 1913). It's similar to the contemporary free-the-nipple movement, which seems to have fizzled out. In this, most men would probably be saying "we wholeheartedly support this movement" (but limit it to the under twenty-fives, and please, no fatties). The fools behind this campaign shriek for "equality", that is the for the same freedom as men to be bare-chested. You couldn't really beat this in the apples and oranges comparison department. But OK, my pretties, we'll pretend to believe that there is no difference between the male and female chests, only don't whinge whenever a man decides to grab your chest or carry on about indecent assault if the female breast is really just the same as a male one padded with fat. You can't have your cake and eat it too, in other words.
BOYCOTT GILLETTE RAZORS Leave them to the lady-boys.
Post Script: Gillette will neither confirm nor deny reports the company is designing a new razor suitable for self-castration.
