Is this the best a man can get? This question, followed by exaggerated slights and contrived examples of how to “act right”… It’s fucking oppressive. If I were a trad operative, this is exactly the type of asymmetric propaganda piece I would create to convince people that liberalism means to turn us into a nation of emasculated pussies.
What would a real piece about toxic masculinity be like? It certainly wouldn’t equate it with simply being less than a gentleman… and it certainly wouldn’t use schoolboy roughhousing as an example of its violence. Being an ill-mannered, ignorant dick should not be mistaken for toxic masculinity. This commercial amounts to First-World Pearl Clutching.
Toxic masculinity is a self-centered morality that ruthlessly seeks conquest. It is a lifestyle of brutality… capable of utter humiliation, rape, and even murder… like the epidemic of femicide that the women of Central America have to deal with.
So… fuck you, Gillette. Take your faux feminism and shove it… along with your lady razors, priced twice as much as those you create for the more masculine population.
