I think you're making more of it than what it is. It's a way for Gillette to say, "Hey guys, we're hip, we're with it, we're down with what the kids are all saying!"

Here's a lesson from the ad: When you continually try to interact with someone who CLEARLY DOES NOT WANT TO INTERACT WITH YOU - what does that make you?


Pretty sure I already made the distinction between someone that will not take no for an answer and a first attempt and you ignored it. So, what's your point?

You got it so wrong... not only is your example a NON-example...

Another huge flaw in this WONG summation is that it need not be 'continually' or repeated or even overt or even noticed to be an example.

Yyyyup. I liked the ad ok, but it's still an ad above all else. If this had come out 10 years ago I'd say it was a brave statement, but now it seems like par for the course. Still a fairly positive statement tho.

How is this thread coming along? I spoke to some girls over the weekend, no one got hurt, I didn't rag on anyone for not being man enough while I was doing it though. Capitalism still sucks.

Capitalism is not bad. It is in fact the only means (sans the divine) that can provide for social programs.

The fact capitalism it can become unbalanced or that you believe you have not been rewarded well enough or that you reprieve some inherent injustice in the system is not an argument against the process.

In any social system, effort is reduced as there less incentive. We also see this in how companies operate as they assume that if they take too much risk that the government will bail them out. The idea of "too big to fail" creates more risk taking. The same is the case with some social programs.

Under ALL examples of socialism, there are wealth gaps. In fact the gap is much larger and much wider. It is just such a small amount of people that have that they go unnoticed by the masses. So people are living (if they are lucky) under an illusion of contentment as they all share the misery of poverty. They simply do not know better.

Make no mistake under socialism your quality of life would soon plummet as fools like AOC's became even more enriched and privileged at our expense.

That's nice, you actually try and argue for capitalism on the basis of inequalities and wealth gaps existing under socialism.

Go try and start another war as you become more and more irrelevant.

I mention the gaps in capitalism and say they are NOTHING COMPARED 2 the ones under socialism. And what war? But yeah you are correct many people are being fooled by the likes of AOC and Sanders and think it might work THIS ONE TIME... if they get their way you will learn too late that I and many others were right.

Actual pure socialism is a meme that's never been able to be tried because it requires a population of automatons who don't rock the boat.

I would say it requires 3 things...

1) *as you said* most people (90%+) participation

2) leaders who are not corrupt
3) effectively unlimited resources


But so far not any socialist government has had any of them

Venezuela has #3 (okay, oil is not unlimited, but they've got plenty of it) and might have #1, if #2 wasn't completely missing...

Gillette has come under fire after releasing a commercial that draws on the #MeToo movement to challenge "toxic masculinity."

In the ad, the razor brand — a subsidiary of global giant Proctor & Gamble — calls out "bullying," "sexual harassment" and "toxic masculinity," and questions: "Is this the best a man can get?" The campaign goes on to encourage men to hold one another accountable for their behavior.

Gillette said on its website it was time brands acknowledged the role they played in influencing culture.

"As a company that encourages men to be their best, we have a responsibility to make sure we are promoting positive, attainable, inclusive and healthy versions of what it means to be a man," the company said.

However, the ad's message was met with backlash from some, with claims it was too political and painted all men as bullies or sexual harassers. The YouTube video, which has been viewed more than 2.8 million times, has almost 250,000 dislikes, while others took to social media to respond to the campaign.

Television personality and journalist Piers Morgan said on Twitter: "If Gillette made a commercial predicated on women being bad & this is how they can all be better... the same radical feminists loving this ad would go nuts."

A spokesperson for Gillette told CNBC via email on Tuesday that the company had a responsibility to champion positive male behaviors.

"We expected debate — discussion is necessary. For every negative reaction we've seen many positive reactions, people calling the effort courageous, timely, smart, and much-needed," they said. "At the end of the day, sparking conversation is what matters. This gets people to pay attention to the topic and encourages them to consider taking action to make a difference."

Gillette said it would donate $1 million per year for the next three years to non-profits that carried out programs in the U.S. designed to help men become role models for the next generation by inspiring respect and accountability.

I think the problem with the ad is that it's condescending. They don't show good examples of masculinity, only bad things, and men are tired of hearing this type of message. The guys who are really the problem aren't watching this or even paying any attention to the message. It's overall a good message that was presented in a bad way, but as I've said before, I think Gillette is just doing this for notoriety and to "me too" woke advertising.
