I found the gillette commercial extremely offensive, iin?

I felt really insulted by it. It didn't communicate anything useful to me, since I, like most men, already respect women. We all have mothers, sisters and daughters. I took the commercial very personally and will remember it when I run out of razors. I will definitely be making a conscious decision not to buy their stupid products.

Is It Normal?

  • there isn’t really any reason to hate on gillette. if it wasn’t aimed towards you, then don’t worry about it. you see hundreds of products aimed towards all people. do you get mad at shampoo when they aim towards people of color? no. if you don’t agree with something (even though it’s an empowering message TO men, that they are the new generation and can change how people view men), don’t say anything. stop buying their razors and move on.

  • Relax. The bit was a marketing move to look powerful and deep when they're no less than any money hungry big brand.

  • Good luck boycotting a company with 2000 products and services. Join dollar shave club if it gets your panties in a bunch. Hopefully the public backlash is enough.

  • If you're as respectful as you say, then the ad isnt about you so why would you take it personally?

    And a commercial you don't like makes the products stupid? I see stupid very clearly and it's not on the part of Gillette

    • The commercial was obviously referring to all men and suggesting they were all either the assholes sexually harassing women, or complicit in the activity. Their product is stupid because it's just a piece of plastic with some metal pieces in it.

      • The ad very clearly does NOT refer to all men. If the cap fits wear it, otherwise stop being so petty.

        If you don't treat women badly and you call out men who do, then the ad is obviously not about you, is it? Why so defensive?

        Whether or not their product is stupid I have no idea, but that has nothing whatsoever to do with the commercial.

      • It is a stupid commercial. Sorry to disappoint Gillette but, yes, boys will be boys and there is nothing wrong with boys wrestling in the yard or fighting a bully.

        • Boys being boys has been used and overused as an excuse for rape, sexual assault, physical assault, bullying and intimidation for far too long.

          Would you be saying the same thing if there were an ad about men raping or sexually assaulting other men?

          • The ad made no mention of rape. It makes brief mention of "allegations of sexual assault". Physical assault, bullying, and intimidation are not limited to males only. The ad is sexist and another example of male bashing.

            Just go to youtube, enter "girls fighting" in the search.

  • The commercial was stupid, but I was expecting it to be a lot worse. It didn't seem like Gillette was attacking men that hard.

    The part that actually annoyed me is when they said that the boys should stop fighting. Learning to fight, within certain safety limits, is a good thing imo.

  • I haven't seen the ad on television, but I looked it up on YouTube. To be completely honest I was happy to see Terry Crews, he's the man!

  • Sigh. You or someone else already posted this. More publicity and targeted advertising for them I guess.

    if this is not a troll post- once again, the new age conservative are becoming the triggered sjws to make way for the feminists to become your sexists overlords, and vice versa every other election year. good job at being another pawn in the outrage culture, and ensuring your place as society's future second class citizens. instead you all could be focusing on the personal insecurities that cause you to be offended by shitty commercials.
