    Hundreds of British men are threatening to boycott Gillette over a new advert which references bullying, the #MeToo movement and 'toxic masculinity' Social media was deluged with outraged males who vowed never to buy any more products from the firm after the commercial went viral. It shows a man talking over a woman in a boardroom, boys fighting and grown men ignoring them saying 'boys will be boys'. It later features men wolf whistling at women without being countered by their peers.
  • Gillette Has Got It Backwards - It's Toxic Feminism That Is Ruining Our World

    Gillette will hopefully go belly-up due their recent commercial that, as many other parts of today's society are now doing - vilifying men at every chance they get. The real problem of our societal slide is toxic feminism. This is evidenced in every form of media we are exposed to. A few examples: The TV show "The View" in which four radical women shout down a pretend moderate to the wild cheers of their like-mined studio audience. A freshman congresswoman who refers to the president as a "Mother------" without gaining so much as a rebuke from her own political party....

    As Gillette has come under increasing competition from low priced competitors such as Dollar Shave Club and Harry's, along with a resurgent Schick who is offering refill cartridges that fit Gillette razors, its market share has dropped from 70% to 50% over the past decade. Gillette has been forced to drop the price of its razors by about 15% over the past few years and is on the verge of losing master brand status. It is within this competitive context that Gillette debuted its “We Believe in the Best in Men” ad campaign on its website yesterday, part of an...

    Hey! Have you seen the new advertisement for Gillette? I just cannot believe what I am seeing... Toxically masculine boys on their way to mansplain things Some boys going on a bullying spree... Toxic masculinity is everywhere and has "been going on far too long" Not-so diverse group of boys learning to be toxic and masculine. One is already manspreading. A narrator then goes on to suggest that "boys will be boys" is simply not going to fly anymore.

    Conservatives sure are afraid of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They don’t like that she danced in college, they’re in an uproar over an old high school nickname — some are even spreading a false rumor about a nude photo. The Republican, mostly male obsession with the 29-year-old Bronx native is more than run-of-the-mill misogyny; it’s existential panic. Because in addition to the young Democratic Socialist standing for (reasonable) policies that conservatives find terrifying, Ocasio-Cortez represents a vision of the future of the United States — a future that’s no longer centered around old white men. The newest class of political representatives are more diverse than...

    Feminist activists have only one goal this year: to make sure abortions in all forms stay legal. As the Supreme Court decides whether or not to hear a case that could end legislation requiring aborted fetuses to be buried as human beings, feminists are panicking. This could be the first abortion-related case to be heard by a conservative-leaning court, and the first abortion case to be heard by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Creator of the Daily Show and pro-abortion activist Lizz Winstead tweeted on Jan. 11, “Today SCOTUS decides whether it will hear an Indiana case requiring mandatory cremation/ burial for...

    A PROFESSOR is facing the sack after using "feminist buzzwords" to get an entire passage from Hitler’s "Mein Kampf" published in an academic journal. Peter Boghossian helped create a series of spoof academic papers to satirise a number of fields including what he describes as the "grievance studies" - including fields on gender, obesity and homosexuality. Assistant philosophy professor Peter Boghossian appears defiant for his role in the elaborate hoax. The assistant philosophy professor at Portland State University in Oregon penned a total of 20 "intentionally broken" and "nonsense" papers with the help of two collaborators. Each of one was...

    This week, the American Psychological Association proved once again that it is a political body rather than a scientific one. It has done it before -- in 2013, it reclassified "gender identity disorder" in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, calling it "gender dysphoria" and then explaining that living with the delusion that you are a member of the opposite sex is not actually a mental disorder at all. That ruling was based on zero scientific evidence -- much like the original DSM-5 classification of pedophilia as a "sexual orientation" before it was renamed "pedophilic disorder" under public...

    While Hollywood women have made incremental gains in below-the-line jobs like producing and editing, they backslid as feature film directors and continue on a path of “radical underrepresentation” in the industry, a new study says. Martha Lauzen’s “Celluloid Ceiling,” a comprehensive report of women’s behind-the-scenes employment in film run out of San Diego State University, hit on Thursday — and its analysis comes with a blazing criticism that Hollywood’s value shift is only lip service until the industry commits to transparency. “The study provides no evidence that the mainstream film industry has experienced the profound positive shift predicted by so...

    In his illustrious 50-year career, screenwriter Andrew Davies has forged a formidable reputation for creating strong female characters. But now he says he is not allowed to make his women anything but feisty – by the powerful female executives who run television. Davies, who is known for adaptations of classics such as Pride And Prejudice and War & Peace, says bosses want to see an image of themselves projected on screen, and veto any 'droopy, soppy' girls he wants to pen.

    Well, well, well, it turns out that Planned Parenthood might not be the immaculate champion of women’s rights they insist to be. Well we all knew that, but it sure is nice to see it as an official story written by The New York Times. In a Thursday report, The New York Times exposed the abortion giant’s “discrimination” against its own pregnant employees. The Times cited the firsthand accounts from several Planned Parenthood employees, including assistant Ta’Lisa Hairston, who complained the “reproductive rights” provider ignored her doctor’s requests that she be allowed to take breaks for the sake of her...

    British actor and 2018 "sexiest man alive" Idris Elba recently told The Sunday Times that the #MeToo movement is "only difficult if you're a man with something to hide." Vanity Fair contrasted Elba's uncompromising stance with remarks made by Matt Damon and Henry Cavill, who both had to walk back their criticisms of #MeToo's potential excesses and their perceived sympathy for accused men. Valerie Jarrett and Shonda Rhimes tweeted praise for Elba. Essence said his answer was "perfect." Is #MeToo only a problem for men who have something to hide? I doubt Aziz Ansari—who was smeared in the pages of...
  • Why some women are OK with men picking up the check on dinner dates

    Chivalry might be dead, but many women still welcome it when a man holds a door or picks up the check. While more than 77% of people in one survey thought a man should pay for a first date, women may see the gesture as a patronizing deal-breaker, especially as society wrestles more than ever with the power dynamic between the sexes. But now there’s evidence that women — even committed feminists — interpret paying for dinner and holding doors as signs that a man is husband material. Interestingly, these women are fully aware that a man who engages in...

December 14, 2018 Dawn Perlmutter In an attempt to establish her feminist bona fides ahead of a likely run for president in 2020, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted on December 4th “Our future is: Female, Intersectional, Powered by our belief in one another. And we’re just getting started.” Gillibrand’s tweet is loaded with feminist code words. The tweet has three primary signifiers each targeting specific groups of voters. The first code “Our future is: Female” alludes to the phrase ‘The Future is...

    On Friday the special counsel released documents rebutting claims from Michael Flynn‘s lawyers that they entrapped the former Trump official, writing: “A sitting National Security Advisor, former head of an intelligence agency, retired Lieutenant General, and 33 year veteran of the armed forces knows he should not lie to federal agents.” Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge noted Friday that some critics of Mueller have argued Flynn was treated worse than Hillary Clinton, a comment that drew an eyeroll from Smith. “Seriously?” Smith asked. “Yeah, that’s what [critics] point to,” Herridge said. “Well, let them point,” Smith continued. “I...

    The anti-Trump Women’s March that hit the streets the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration is now gearing up for a repeat event on January 19 in Washington, DC, but some of its founders are facing charges from former fellow activists that the left-wing group is promoting the bigotry and corruption it claims to oppose. Teresa Shook, credited as one of the women who launched the march on social media, spearheaded the criticism last month when she called on the women now running the “movement” to step down. Those women include Women’s March National co-chairwomen Carmen Perez, Bob Bland, Tamika...
