lmaooo some men are so funny you think masculinity isnt toxic but men commit 90% of violent crimes clearly something is wrong?
Gilette: "we don't think men should bully or harass people"
Internet: "OMG so controversial I hate it!"
Pathetic stuff to be honest. Ironically it's the same crowd of people who usually deride the "overly-sensitive snowflake" stereotype who are up in arms about this. Hypocrites.

Except this isn’t about stereotypes it’s about pressings societal/cultural issues. And as a POC, yes I would actually support a company with a majority black male consumer base taking a stand against knife crime in a similarly fashion. Because while there are a host of socioeconomic factors that lead to this knife crime epedemic, toxic masculinity in the culture of black males exasperates the issue. Your anology wasn’t the “gotcha” you thought it was, but nice try.
It seems as if people are terrified that men particularly men of colour will be
by this ad and will reform and become competition. My issue is using gender as an ulterior motive to be racist, because I hate passive aggressive people. I hate when feminists do it, when white women swear their issues are harder than black folk or are similar to women in the third world, so I'll hate when men use gender in negligence of race and class too. Now they're making this about men
. That ad had men of all colours,
so that means all situations and backgrounds but people are taking this personally! Just when I saw the twinkle in people's eyes that they were moved by this ad to be better people, I saw the mountains moving within them. Now they're being discouraged by outright angry men and feel they have to be angry too just because they're male, and as a man from a broken home and society, it saddens me to see men angry
about this. Im normally down for men's rights but Im confused with this one, why are these men acting like butthurt feminazis?

Would you think it useful if they started advocating, say, a programme of euthanasia among drug-takers, or old, fat, or smoking people to save the NHS money. I doubt it. But because the issue resonates with you you think it is OK to do so here.
whew the mental gymnastics.

Just imagine if some major food retailer
decided to promote fair trade, ethical investment, or animal welfare. What a world that would be!
Or if all its bigger competitors did the opposite.
I am guessing by 'values' you mean 'my values'.

Based on how some men have responded, Gillette need to follow it up with a ad on fragile masculinity.
so many men triggered up in here....

So I'd be interested to hear your take on crime statistics and race...
poverty easily explains this created by societal oppression and unfair sentencing like its that simple please try harder. Men commit 90% of violent crimes so what explains this?
