They don’t make hotels like THAT any more either!

No. Snowflakes work from the politically correct angle hunting things down to be angry and further their agenda.

My main point is why should the snow flakes feel its OK to tell men to just "get over the advert" when if the boot was on the other foot it would be deemed sexist.

For the record im not offended by the video but find it amazing how hypicritical the left view it. The left seem to think everyone should conform and be the same. No boys will be boys and girls will be girls.

All this from a company that charges more for women's razors

I can honestly say that I’ve never knowingly bought a Gillette product. They are too expensive compared to ‘less fancy’ alternatives. I have in the past attended Gillette Cup cricket matches and I once ran the Gillette London Marathon. I’m sure you will all be delighted to hear this!

If companies were clever, they would just take off the "For men/women" and "For boys/girls" as there is very little difference and that way they can say
"Yeah we dont know why people are prepared to pay extra for a pink razor either..."

No surprise where the cultural Marxist BBC stands on the issue.

Get in! Gillette drop 'social justice' ads attacking so called 'toxic masculinity' and instead says it's 'shifting the spotlight'.

It's just released an ad profiling an Australian firefighter - John Sexton who was called 'the most traditionally masculine man imaginable.'

Real blokes spoke with their wallets....the 'men hating' feminists and soy boy beta degenerates lost.....they bent over and ate it.....So having said that, I guess they still had something to enjoy.

I'm looking forward to a culture war developing around roasted peanuts. It can only be a matter of time now.

Oh for goodness sake, left or right wing, could you please watch this video by Hbomberhuy [Link] and understand that your reaction (Whatever your reaction is) is the reason the campaign was made...YOU have become an advert for Gillette by talking about it...

He seems talented and has humour but he's way too lefty and 'progressive' for me.....He's entertaining but it was an effort to watch it to the end....but you are a genuine and honest poster so I did.

What I'd say in response is that the motivations of corporations is neither here nor there. Why should you or I care whether they believe or don't believe in any particular message they put out? Capitalism is the profit motive, it's exists to motivate the supplying of need.

You see a message from an advertiser, you like it or dislike it....you buy the product or you don't. If they gained your attention that's the point...as long as they stay within the law.

I would certainly agree with certain criticisms of corporations....for example, he makes valid criticisms of corporations (not the pink tax though) like child labour and anti unionist practices, tax practices and so on... So I'm interested in ideas where they could be better motivated.....however, mucking around with capitalism is something that has to be extremely carefully considered.....as history attests.

As for Gillette, their parent company, which is significantly larger is otherwise doing well, took an 8 billion write down the other month which was attributed to this campaign and hence the swap in direction. Still not buying them though until they issue an apology.

He seemed to make the contention that Nike's use of 'Colin Kaepernick' had no significant losses for them....continually chanting 'six billion dollars'. Well....that's not accurate and there is more to that story.

At the time of the adverts Nike were at 131.57 billion capital worth. Within days of the advert airing that worth had slid down to 123 billion. However if you look at the chart the general trend in Nike's worth has been significantly up since 2012 and I suspect has much to do with China and new markets (who aren't going to care about anti US themes) and the value soon recovered.....However, it's current value is now below it's pre advert high.....though I suspect this is to do with the trade war.

Essentially Nike are a global brand and corporation and it's hard to really see how a bad reaction in one country is going to affect them that much....it's probably reduced them a little from where they would be....but nothing major.

I think US corporations who are global brands can afford to take the long term view.....the future for the US is permanent Democratic government with the only battle being between socialists and moderates within it.....and at the moment the socialists are the only winners because they demographic want free stuff.

Nike look at the demographics and see who their future customers are likely to be......They are playing for 'brownie' points now....Looking to curry favour now....forgive me my bad jokes.

These are the markets that are coming.

Annoyed republican types are on the gradual way out.

Still....purely on an economic level they should probably have been less direct and obvious.
