It is getting some backlash over the feminization of men, but I'd be interested in hearing thoughts from folks like zvelf, silver surfer, Thurisaz, and bd2999 in particular. Kim Gehrig, a feminist, provided much input into the commercial. So my question: Do you agree that the ideal man are like those that this commercial advocates for?
I've never been on the same side as Piers Morgan, so when two polar opposites agree, you know the shared viewpoint must be right.
The Gillette commercial sends a subliminal message, generalizing that men are shameful, should feel bad about themselves, should monitor all actions of other men, and need to get woke that they're generally prone to bullying, sexual harassment, and abuse.
Joe Rogan, on his podcast, also nails it. The ad makes every man look like a misogynist piece of shit, and nobody wants to be lectured.
