https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-25/latest-gillette-ad-features-dad-teaching-transgender-son-shave-first-time

 

Months after releasing an ad shaming all men for being 'toxic' pigs (while curiously cutting out a scene from the original ad featuring a booty-grabbing fake rap video), Gillette wants female-to-male trans individuals to know that once those hormones kick in, they've got your shaving needs covered. 

 

Their new advertisement features the moment a loving dad teaches his transgender son, Samson Brown, how to shave for the first time, according to Gaystar News. 

"I’m at the point in my manhood where I’m actually happy. It’s not just myself transitioning, it’s everybody around me transitioning," says Samson." 

"Thank you so much Gillette," Samson commented under the ad on the company's Facebook page, adding "‘I look forward to the great things you’re going to continue doing to encourage us all to be our best selves."

"Thank you for sharing your story, Samson!" responded Gillette, in what was surely a natural and unscripted exchange surrounding their new ad campaign. "We’re honored to showcase this special moment between you and your father and are proud to have you as a partner. Thank you for your courage and confidence in sharing your journey to becoming your best self!" the shaving company continued. 

In January, Gillette drew criticism for their short film on so-called 'toxic masculinity,' which begins with a montage of bullying and sexism - as a pack of wild, toxically masculine white boys tear around, leaving behind a wake of misery and abuse.

Eh, this one was fine.  There was no attack on men or traditional masculinity.

This one isn’t as bad as the other one. “Normalizing” trans so ferociously in media isn’t good for society.  But it was kind of a decent commercial.  It was done well anyway, even if I don’t agree with the political statement. 

 

That said. I used gillete for the last 20 years and haven’t bought it since the abortion of a man hating commercial

She was brave for being a transgender. But since she's fully transformed into a male does that mean he's a toxic pig now?

Yeah, just overall societal degradation.  No problem.

Poor people are not capable of living in a civil society. Our supply system Earth can't keep giving forever at the pace we are growing in population. All this gay bs isn't altruistic in nature. They would just as soon pour gas on the gays but they serve a solution. Population control left on its own in the hands of low IQ poor people is disastrous. This media push is only the first level of population control and I'm sure there is much more to this effort.

Yep... A company that doesn’t have peer/near-peer competition could get away with this shit. But P&G has too much competition to be this stupid and get away with it.

Carl Sonnen - Fucking disgusting. I remember when people used to be ashamed to be weirdo fucks in America. Now the media (which is owned by a certain group of people who we are not allowed to mention) promotes all forms of mental illness as 'normal' in order to destroy our old culture and society. Its all part of the Marxist game plan to subvert and pervert anything it can.

Meh.  Honestly I think it's just a marketing decision. 

This all started with Kaepernick and Nike.  Others followed.  Appealing to SJW's and the radical left is all the rage with corporate promotions.  I think the only game plan is hard cold cash. 

Gillette would happily make commercials promoting the genocide of minorities if they thought it would make them one dollar more.

LOL...the ad campaign is pure virtue-signaling to show what woke male allies they are.

It will cost Gillette tens of millions in lost revenue.

Who are these people you can’t mention and why can’t you mention them? I’m genuinely curious.
