Get woke go broke. Gillette, the company that creates razors for men, released a video, titled "Believe", remember the stuff you learnt from public school at the age of 5, because that's whats the video about.

Private companies can do what they want, and consumers likewise, it's hillarious to see such an advert and think that they seriously believe to a large extent this would work, I grew up with a violent man- a woman beater, and such, it's clear that this is the classic "Pay someone a thousand pound of taxpayers money to come up on stage and tell the kids why bullying is bad, that'll show the bullies!"

The Building a Better Man Project, whom Gillette had partnered with, are founded by men who came from middle-class backgrounds (they had Ph.D, in America, who payed for the fees?), clearly with the intention of pussyifying men in order to create less competition for their children, who can blame them? In this day and age, there is no fear and competition to raise strong man, whereas before such men would protect the likes of their children, the future generation, elitist know that in the next war, they can buy a plane ticket and join an underground bunker.

The advert talks about stopping sexual harressment, this is difficult because dare I say, you have no obligation to? Indeed the responsibilty of protecting women lied in the father, husband, brothers and other male relatives, but now in this effort of creating an 'independent and powerful' world for woman, it comes at the obligation for us to be their two-wheelers.

Bitch Boy Cunt-worshipper BBC says "The advert encourages men to act with more respect and to set a positive example to young boys", what men? 1 out of 4 children in the UK are being raised by single mother, and in a neo-liberal capitalist society, where men and women are being encouraged and pressured to work, with the wages in the UK not rising according to the prices in the marketplace as it's now acceptable for business owners to not pay their employees according to the standard that they must feed their families, since your wife can also go work if you can't afford X, Y and Z. Children are being raised without parents in the homes, I live in a working class area in "London" (even calling it Londonistan is giving it too much credit).

I don't use razors myself, and I see that this isn't being discussed here, what do you guys think about this? For what reason are companies choosing to Go Woke and Get Broke?

P.S: Burger King released a similar campaign known as the Chick Tax, where they charged women more for their food and recorded it, symbolising the wage gap idea. And today, President Trump still decided to pump taxpayer's money into buying Burger King goods for the white house guests, goes to show they're all the same from their actions.

Edit: "hE BRougHt WIth His Own moNEY!" Yeah, still brought Burger King though, didn't he?

So there I was, putting on my rape shoes, and practicing my sexual harassment pickup lines this morning. I just got done cyberbullying my coworkers. It was time to shave, I yelled at my wife to smile because I demand it, while pinching her butt right after she told me she didn't consent to it. Putting on the shaving cream and thinking about how I can get my son into a fight at the next BBQ, I replaced the worn Gillette brand Mach3 and began to chant "boys will be boys" as I started to shave. Then suddenly my daughter burst into the bathroom holding her phone. As I began to mansplain to her why she isn't smart enough to know my shaving time is my time she showed me the new Gillette ad. I realized how my every view and behavior I've ever held dear was wrong. I'm calling in sick at the toxic masculinity factory today and registering Democrat. Thanks Gillette, now excuse me while I help to impeach.

This is funny but I actually disagree with the point. Obviously the Gillette ad alone is not influential but it is merely one microscopic part of the cultural brainwashing that we are under. "Repeat the lie enough times and people believe it" is like propaganda 101. Considered in the aggregate, this stuff is definitely effective in what it's trying to do.

[-] miserablesisyphus 101 Points 8 months ago

What's interesting is that women are just as aggressive as men, but they use words instead of physicality. Depression, suicides, and anxiety are climbing for both men and women, but young girls have seen a huge spike in rates. The best explanation is that girls use their phones, social media, etc. to bully or exclude other girls online, leading to more and more psychological harm for young women. However, take these statistics and make a campaign that attacks women, telling them to treat each other differently and you would have a huge backlash.

What I also found interesting is the guy who stops the other guy from trying to talk to the woman passing in the street. Since when was it wrong to try to approach and pick up women? They could have been soulmates, afterall /s.

Or how about the boys fighting. Physical play is important. My brothers and I always rough-housed and it taught me to stand up for myself and to be stronger. The role of my father was to not let it get too far--and when my Dad said stop, we stopped. That's what we should teach them--it is play and there are rules. Don't play to hurt the other, play to make each other better.

In relationships women are more prone to violence than men.

[-] CainPrice 49 Points 8 months ago

Women also commit more child abuse than men, including sexual abuse. Single moms, the heroes of society, are the worst offenders. If a kid shows up to school with bruises, there's a 3 out of 4 chance it's Mom's week with him.

[-] [deleted] 21 Points 8 months ago

Plus the female pedo teachers who don't get jail time etc. Basically the system is virtue signalling that it's not a crime for females to sleep with children.

[-] redpillschool 15 Points 8 months ago

I've heard of women beating their child just to frame it on dad.

[-] MattyAnon 2 Points 8 months ago

The narrative has to be pushed as hard as it does precisely because it's so untrue.

[-] 0io- 10 Points 8 months ago

In the current system, a woman can shove, can throw things or can hit her boyfriend or husband in the face because she's annoyed with him. If he tries to defend himself he's the one who will go to jail in most jurisdictions. The nanny-state encourages bad and abusive behavior from women. No consequences!

[-] Imperator_Red 1 Point 8 months ago

Probably only because they know they can get away with it though.

[-] MattyAnon 1 Point 7 months ago

Counterpoint: lesbian relationships are more physically abusive than male gay relationships.

[-] Imperator_Red 1 Point 7 months ago

Point still stands I think. A lesbian abuser isn't going to be automatically assumed guilty like a straight male.

[-] miserablesisyphus 1 Point 8 months ago

I'm sure there are exceptions. Afterall, some women are stronger than some men. But, on average men are more aggressive physically and women are more emotionally aggressive. I'm not refuting your statement, but it's probably a separate issue with separate circumstances.

There's a great example in book i'm reading that says if we gave guns out to both boys and girls, which group would suffer most? Obviously the boys, they are more inclined to physical aggression...Now, substitute a gun with a phone. Girls are way more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression because they will use the phone (social media, exclusion, words, etc.) to harm each other. The big difference--we've actually given girls these phones and they are paying the price.

[-] Short-changedChad 2 Points 8 months ago

What's interesting is if we change your hypothetical to men and women. Women (over-grown children) are less responsible than men and also have less accountability. Men are already predisposed to know that violence between each other can escalate and generally avoid it (probably because they were once allowed to play rough as children at family barbecues with men only intervening if it got too serious...). Women act on their feelings in the moment and generally don't consider repercussions or consequences like a man will- partly because our society doesn't hold them accountable. If we mandated that all women must carry guns you can bet you bottom dollar that Julie taking Sarah's coffee mug from the office kitchen would eventually escalate into murder.

Which leads me to an interesting point: If you are aware of the Hegelian Dialectic as a method of inducing control from the shadows- that is creating a reaction to a problem, whereby the solution gives you the outcome you want without anybody realising it (Problem, reaction, solution), could we not manipulate the world into seeing that giving women responsibilities outside of child care is detrimental to civilization?

Problem: Women have too much power and too little responsibility in the current age.

Reaction: Mandate they all can carry firearms, but men cannot under the guise that they need protection from all the evil males that Gillette says are out there. (Chaos ensues)

Solution: Everyone realises that giving women responsibility is folly. And civilisation can return to its former path to glory

[-] Imperator_Red 1 Point 8 months ago

Afterall, some women are stronger than some men.

For age 18-45, probably 0.1% of women are stronger than the average able-bodied male.

[-] tempolaca 1 Point 8 months ago

Afterall, some women are stronger than some men.

If the girl is a body-builder, injects testosterone and you put her against a teenager yes, she might be stronger. Try training with a girl in MMA. They are a step down in strength and endurance than teens.

Have you read Coddling of The American Mind? Haidt and Lukiankoff go over everything that you've just described.

[-] miserablesisyphus 18 Points 8 months ago

Yes, it's a great book!

What I don't think they really go into is how women's increased mental problems is causing this backlash against men. They explain that women are hurting other women, yet men are taking the brunt of the feminist movement.

[-] mineralranch 4 Points 8 months ago

Yeah, that's a good point. I guess that wasn't really the purpose of the book though. They're trying to explain why a certain generation of people seem to be doing so badly and how that came to be. They're also self-proclaimed leftists. I felt like there was a real effort throughout the book to not say anything too inflammatory.

Overall, one of the best books I've ever read. So glad to see that there is still a semblance of sanity in academia.

[-] Crixusgannicus 9 Points 8 months ago

Coddling of The American Mind

Add the older book, Dumbing Down of America. We are in deep shit.

[-] mineralranch 6 Points 8 months ago

Maybe. I think this is just a momentary societal-wide lapse of judgment. This way of thinking is not sustainable in the long-term and will ultimately die off, or as you said, get us into some deep shit.

​

Most of the people who think this way are overprivileged upper-class college kids who have lived in a world absent of all challenge and rigor. They've never known want. Their parents, school systems, and communities have provided everything for them at the expense of their emotional and intellectual development. Thankfully, this isn't a majority of Americans.

[-] Crixusgannicus 7 Points 8 months ago

It's being promoted on purpose though. As I said, here or maybe elsewhere. betas and soys are easier to conquer, control and rule so Alphas and even anything close to an Alphas "must" be diminished or even eradicated to one extent or another and by one means or another.

[-] Hencley 7 Points 8 months ago

Did you by any chance listen the the recent Joe Rogan podcast on this topic? It was interesting, social media is driving young girls to depression and self harm like crazy because of the social bullying that women do on their. It's arguable much more destructive than men fighting/being physical.

[-] rcglinsk 7 Points 8 months ago

There's also a major issue with timing. 11/12 year old boys who get into a fight really can't hurt each other that badly, just not strong enough yet, which is why boys will be boys is good parenting. Let them get that shit out of their system before they're older and can do real damage. But 12 year old girls, at least according to female relatives, are at peak fitness for inflicting emotional harm.

Also the guy at the party, I mean it must be encouraged to talk to girls on the street without being taken by a fucking rapist.

[-] CainPrice 113 Points 8 months ago

Most people who live in urban population centers are politically liberal.

Companies that put out liberal virtue-signaling advertisements aren't trying to change people's minds about masculinity or affect the national culture. They're just signaling their political alignment with other liberals.

It's about money, not about what companies really think. Gillette doesn't give a shit about male culture. They want politically liberal people to buy their products.

[-] hidemyface1234 29 Points 8 months ago

Don't worry about it. Feminism and liberalism are just giant shit tests.

Pretend to go along with liberal politics outwardly, but act like a real man, and your dick will see a lot of action.

[-] mineralranch 12 Points 8 months ago

To what extent do you pretend? I've noticed in my personal life that most people think liberalism is bullshit and incoherent nonsense. But then again, I work in the trades. Everyone I work with has a very pragmatic approach to life and doesn't pontificate endlessly on bullshit; they simply don't have the time or care enough.

​

I'm going to be entering the healthcare industry after college. To what extent do you pretend? I figure I'll just agree with the shit verbally, but act however I want to act in the end.

[-] CainPrice 4 Points 8 months ago

My general approach among my neighbors, coworkers, and any woman I've ever met online is that I only talk politics if questioned, then change the subject because I don't like debating politics. If asked, I say that I didn't vote for Trump as though it's the most obvious thing ever that nobody normal would, say that I consider myself pro-gay, a feminist, etc., "I guess", followed by that I'm not very political - I don't march in rallies or anything like that, I'm too busy working to be an activist. I pass myself off as a normal liberal - exactly what most psycho-liberals think most of the population is like (even though it isn't). I don't talk politics unless questioned, in which case I indicate my dislike of Trump and my support of gays and feminism as though it's obvious that everybody feels this way, then change the subject.

[-] Imperator_Red 1 Point 8 months ago

My general approach among my neighbors, coworkers, and any woman I've ever met online

Coworkers is one thing, but do you seriously hide your political beliefs from everyone you know...? Wtf?

[-] CainPrice 1 Point 8 months ago

Not from close friends, but most acquaintances, most neighbors, all co-workers, and all women. It's not worth the risk. People are lunatics and in modern times, they think normal, average, decent, politically conservative folks are worse than terrorists. Hell, they think political conservatives -are- the terrorists.

If people find out that you're not politically liberal, maybe they won't physically harm you, but they'll get you fired. They'll harass your employer enough that dealing with the hassle isn't worth it. They'll harass your girlfriend or wife or friends enough that they'll bail on you. They'll vandalize your home.

This isn't true everywhere, of course, but if you live in a place with enough liberal political crazies, it's not safe to be conservative in Trump's America. They see Trump as a troll candidate. Like an internet troll, but for real life. A life troll. Nobody real or serious would actually vote for that guy in their world. And since trolls aren't real people, they're fine harming trolls. They're fine taking revenge for that 2016 election thing against random conservatives, all in the name of social justice. They won't kill you, but if they find you out, they'll get you fired, get your women to leave you, and try to make you friendless. And they're right to do it because as well all know, people who aren't politically liberal are the real terrorists.

[-] mineralranch 1 Point 8 months ago

Good approach.

​

Talking politics with someone is pointless anyway. The other person isn't going to change their mind and will probably end up hating you in the end. I did the same thing in the presence of my old beta friends. Just agreed with the shit they said and tried to change the subject. I felt like I entered a surprise interrogation once when one girl asked me what I thought about Trump; all of a sudden all eyes were on me. Fucking weird. I just said "he's an idiot" and moved on to something else. I've found that you can't have a balanced discussion about politics with most people. I've tried a few times and learned my lesson. Now I just shut the fuck up in social situations.

[-] CainPrice 1 Point 8 months ago

That's a good approach. You -have- to say that Trump is an ass and imply that you didn't vote for him. Then move the conversation forward. If you try to change the subject or say that you're not that into politics in response to the initial question, people will think that you're concealing the fact that you're conservative, and game over.

[-] throwitdown92011 6 Points 8 months ago

[-] CainPrice 15 Points 8 months ago

Don't underestimate liberalism. I do a lot of HR work. A couple years ago, if you showed up to work in a MAGA hat, you'd be shit-canned for being a disruptive influence. Wearing an article of clothing that supported Trump was deemed to be something done to intentionally incite others, so it was disallowed.

So get this - we drafted a memo banning any political clothing or propaganda on-site except for a couple of designated areas, and the higher-ups shit a brick and claimed it was sexist and a violation of people's rights to silence their support of the soon-to-be first female president.

So I told my boss, "Hey, I don't like Trump either, but I don't think we can actually put in writing that it's against company policy to support Trump but okay to support Clinton. That's pretty illegal." So the solution was to keep everything verbal, make no paper trail, and just call in the small number of Trump supporters personally and tell them to cut it out.

Here is a red pill life lesson for you. Companies basically do what they want. If your boss dislikes you because of your political orientation they will give you shit assignments or maybe find a reason to fire you. They want you gone they will either find something to say is the reason even though it is your politics.

One of the laws of power goes something like think what you want, but let others believe you share their views. I'm tired and too lazy to go look it up. The point is there is no reason to make life difficult by letting everyone know you think differently. The sheeple get scared when they know you think for yourself instead of buying into the group think.

[-] CainPrice 3 Points 8 months ago

The same way you don't tell a slutty woman you think she's a slut and you don't intend to text her after you fuck her brains out tonight, you play a little pretend to get by in other areas of life as well.

Hey, if you want to open your soul up and tell women who you really are and what you're really like so they can love you for you, go right ahead. Maybe you'll find a special someone. Or maybe you'll work out so much and get such a great body that women will fuck you anyway.

I'll just keep my innermost thoughts to myself and get laid right now.

[-] ExcellentStudio 3 Points 8 months ago

Is this like your first day on TRP? You're literally suggesting saying agreeable things to girls so they'll like you and have sex with you. It doesn't get any more textbook beta than that. I don't want here to "love me for me" but I absolutely do tell her she's a slut amd I'm never gonna text her again and guess what faggot we still fuck

[-] CainPrice 6 Points 8 months ago

I suppose the theoretical ideal is to be a man so amazing and so awesome that you could say or do pretty much anything and 100% of women will fuck you 100% of the time in exchange for absolutely no money, no time, and no attention. And some men are closer to that theoretical ideal than others.

But the other 99% of us have to talk to women and have a normal conversation, where we don't show up in our MAGA hats and call them sluts to their faces.

There's a lot of gray area between kissing a woman's feet and trying to please milady the princess so she might want to grace a guy with sex, and calling her a slut to her face. Such as acting like someone with normal social skills and having a normal conversation with a girl for an hour that doesn't offend either one of you too terribly, then going home to fuck.

[-] Imperator_Red 1 Point 8 months ago

I have never and will never tell a girl that I'm a leftist to get laid, and it's never costed me one single ounce of pussy. I don't bring up politics unless they ask me, and when they do I tell them the truth. If they start rambling about their moronic views I just laugh at them and order another drink.

One girl told me she hoped Trump would die a painful death every day. I told her that she is cruel because I only wish quick and painless death on Obama. Ten minutes later she said it would be hot to do a liberal/conservative hatefuck roleplay.

The pendulum swings around as shit happens. As soon as there's a war, natural disaster, hydrocarbon fuels become scarce, some kind of blight makes food hard to grow, or something like that, and people suddenly have to worry about not having enough to eat and not getting shot by people who don't have enough to eat, liberal politics go out the window.

Liberalism is a symptom of decadence and an easy life of excess. When people don't have to worry about food or safety for the most part, they have to invent issues to stay angry at life. So they get really invested into ideology. Suddenly, the not-illegal ways that innocent men behave becomes demonized as a serious issue and the root cause of why a few bad men behave illegally and immorally. Suddenly, the most lavish and successful culture in the world, full of opportunities for everybody, is pissed on as sexist and bigoted. Suddenly, anybody who's successful becomes the inherent enemy of anybody who's not. We have to invent problems to keep life interesting.

The same shit happens all over the place, on both sides of the line. Low-value men who don't have to worry about food or safety have a lot of time to complain about their ideology on the internet as well.

This shit ends as soon as life actually gets hard and people have real problems. The very moment having enough to eat and not getting shot becomes a real concern for most people, liberal politics will disappear about 2.5 seconds later.

[-] TheImpossible1 8 Points 8 months ago

Let's just hope people remember what women stood for and don't fall for the innocence act.

[-] CainPrice 45 Points 8 months ago

Nah. There's no revenge to be had against women. Women do what women do. It's their nature.

When the way for women to succeed socially was to be chaste, attract successful suitors approved by their parents, marry, and have kids, that's what women did. When we removed financial dependence and social consequences and told women that the way to be socially successful is to be sexually liberated and empowered, women did exactly that. When the path to success becomes fucking a guy who has food and guns, that's what women will do.

Women are great at adapting to society, and this isn't some deplorable thing they do. It's their greatest strength. It's how they survived all of these millennia instead of being strong and risky like men.

This whole Red Pill thing is about learning not to hate women for being women, but understanding how they operate and using that to get laid.

[-] TheImpossible1 9 Points 8 months ago

I like revenge though. For all the people I saw getting their lives ruined, for all the boys forced to act like or even become girls, for all the things I used to enjoy before feminism took over.

I will hoard my stuff in the case of a catastrophic event and any woman that even considers going near my food is getting chased off with a gun.

Most likely though, that won't happen and we'll just have to suffer through the gendered equivalent of a cold war.

I'm mainly here for self improvement. What women are now disgusts me. This is more than just their nature in terms of reproductive strategy. There's something genuinely fucked up about them. They target children with this shit for fuck sake.

When people don't have to worry about food or safety for the most part, they have to invent issues to stay angry at life. So they get really invested into ideology.

The question then becomes: why do companies need to associate with a particular political stance at all? Is the hope that a stunt like this will spike sales in liberal demographics in order to compensate for the loss in conservative demographics, and that this will net the company profit? Seems like a massive headache, and a hardly reliable strategy compared to simply staying neutral. I think there’s more to this than potential profits. It’s repetitive indoctrination

[-] CainPrice 3 Points 8 months ago

Liberals buy with their feelings. Conservatives buy with their money.

If Gillette is selling the cheapest razor or the best quality razor or the best quality for a certain price point, conservatives will buy it because they work hard for their money and make logical decisions how to spend it. They don't care if the company had some anti-man commercial if they make the best or most economical razor. Being frugal with his money is more important than spending it on ideology to a conservative. He can use the money he saves taking care of his own - himself and his family.

If Gillette demonstrates itself to be a moral company (or at least appears to be so) and aligned with someone's ideals and invokes feelings in a liberal consumer, he's more likely to buy. Feeling good about himself and supporting his ideology is worth money to a liberal. The same way if Gillette turned out to be an evil racist company who hates women, gays, and anybody with dark skin, they'd boycott it in a second regardless of how good or bad or well-priced the razors were.

It's ironic that the poorer US states vote Republican and that demographic, which are the very masses those enlightened progressives are supposed to stand for, is disparaged as bigoted, backward "rednecks." On the flipside have some other competitor with common sense take advantage of the created market of pissed off American men on red states.

[-] CainPrice 2 Points 8 months ago

Things flip-flopped. The Republicans used to be the people's party who were all about freedom from big government controls. They were essentially constitutionalists who remembered that the U.S. was founded in response to a monarchy and that as a country, our culture was against the idea of big government and wanted more of of a decentralized system. Democrats were the institutional deep south plantation-owning party that fought hard to keep slavery going. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican president. They hated his guts.

Not too long after the civil rights movement, the Democrat party got taken over by socialists and racial activists. They were still against the successful white-men Republican party that favored smaller government and more personal freedom, but this time around, they took the stance that big government should be used to stop the white-men Republicans from being so undeservingly successful and spread the wealth around. That stance went over very well with hippies, women, and blacks. It still does today.

Today, the Democrat party is so alarmingly socialist that they're almost fascist. They'd like to round up all of the people who think wrong things and lock them up until they're rehabilitated.

Meanwhile, the Republican party has fragmented. The silent majority of them are still generally libertarian-ish capitalists who want less government, less taxes, and more personal freedom. But all you hear about are the loud religious right and the radical alt-right, who practically consider normal Republicans leftists. If you want to get elected to anything, you have to cater to the far-right, so now we mostly see crazies running for office, who are probably just normal people pretending to be a little more hardcore-right to get votes.

They talk about how we should stop saying "boys will be boys." I've never heard that phrase used in any way to justify teasing or physical abuse. That's not to say that it's never happened, but I've never heard it before in the real world in my life. I've only heard it used when boys are climbing and falling out of trees, running around, jumping in leaf piles, playing in the mud, getting filthy, and having a great time. Is any of that so bad?

Even in the commercial the fathers were not using "boys will be boys" to justify bullying or anything like that. I saw two kids wrestling playfully. The commercial made it seem like that was some sort of aggressive learned behavior. Its not like they learned to wrestle from watching their dad's wrestle, they just do it because its what they do. Me and my brother used to wrestle all the time and we grew up not allowed to watch TV. So yes boys will be boys.

The problem with these types of messages continually vomited out by the MSM and popular culture is that, it denies the underlying power dynamic between men and women. As we all know here, women possess a certain reproductive power over men. They birth children. They are literally flesh portals that men must insert their little flesh portal into in order to pass along their genetics. However, nature balanced this power by burdening women with the burdens of reproduction. Women must get pregnant, grow a child inside of herself (at a reproductive cost to herself), and then nurse and is psychologically programmed to be obsessed with the baby during its most vulnerable years. In exchange, men were selected by women, by their ability to aid and abet all the duties outside of reproduction; providing shelter, resources, protecting the home, leading the tribe, and the myriad of other duties needed to ensure that the tribe and its children could survive and thrive. The men that did not sufficiently fulfill their roles, tended not to reproduce. Thus, men were burdened with the expectation of performance, that women were largely omitted from as their burden was that of reproduction.

​

This balance worked for millennium. Each gender had its role and complimented each other.

​

Suddenly, in the modern era of abundance, it's become 'toxic' that men strive for positions of influence and power, and that we hold these positions in greater numbers than women. Men's complimentary role is now being actively challenged by society. While women's innate reproductive advantage can and will never be challenged, because, well, its innate.

​

The above is difficult to verbalize to your 'normie' out there in the wider World. However, if you want to put a purple pill spin that is digestible by the average person going about their life, its this: Women are attracted to strong and successful men. As men get pushed off the top rungs of society, there are imply less men that women have to choose from to be fulfilled by their partner. By asking men to set aside their masculinity, competitiveness, and drive, society is asking men to set aside exactly the traits that women find attractive. In the end, this hurts women, and the rising rates of unmarried and childless, and generally sexually frustrated women in the West, is a result of this society experiment gone wrong.

​

As an addendum to the last paragraph, you may notice that almost all women who complain about 'toxic masculinity' are either post wall or unattractive women. This is because they do not have the innate reproductive power that most young women have, and thus are seeking traditionally masculine paths of power to compensate. In addition, older males and beta males join their cause, as its convenient to reduce their biggest competitors; younger, high testosterone, competitive males. Those males are the biggest threat to their reproductive success as they tend to monopolize young female sexuality.

Remember the left has forked the English language. They first redefine a word and base their ideological assumptions around that new definition.

I have autism and another issue I was born with is I have an extra Y chromosome.

Back when I was little the PHD's had all done research and claimed that allowing such children to playfight caused them to grow up and murder people; they decided that playfighting = prison when you grow up.

So on the advice of these Doctors my parents stopped me playfighting.

10 years later they sent me to a boarding school and on the first day EVERYONE had to fight each other to establish the pecking order. I was highly functioning within my autism and other problems so able to keep up mentally but I had no common sense and was weak AF.

Thanks to these Doctors I had, and until very recently, still have, a mental block where I couldn't punch people, or hit them or push them. As a result I got the shit kicked out of me, and for the 5 years I was there I was the punchbag. I was taken out when I had a nervous breakdown after suffering severe trauma, physical and sexual. Since then I had a lot of therapy, but it was not required because I know exactly why; these Phd Doctors ruined my life with their BS theories.

The funny thing is the same PHD psychologists who say "It's not their fault" and "You shouldn't learn how to fight anyway" are the ones who expect men to come to their aid when they talk shit to men on the street and it goes physical, or when a male predator attacks them. They say men are the violent oppressors yet they shield themselves behind the same men they criticise.

I have come to the conclusion that women think men are worthless.

Only 12% of all of the homeless adults in the USA are women, yet constantly the rhetoric is "Get women off the street". Where are all the campaigns for men? That's right...we are throwawayable worthless entities to them.

The problem is "them" are now in the positions of power. They don't care about equality.

I am a very spiritual person and I hang out in a lot of spiritual groups and they have somehow managed to infiltrate and change spiritual rhetoric too. They now spout "If we get rid of the patriarchy, and create a matriarchy, humanity will Ascend!!!!!"

translation: "Let's end the oppression of women (patriarchy) and form the oppression of men (matriarchy) instead, and because oppression of men is so kind, humanity will as a collective, get better".

I thought oppression was oppression? How can one kind be ok but another is evil?

I don't even see a patriarchy in the West. They have more rights than we do!!!

So I don't hate them...rather the way they behave.

I am sort of in between MGTOW and RP, in that I have checked out of the dating scene, but I still go and date when I start craving intimacy. And every time I do that I am disappointed, having to deal with the shit tests and constant negging that women these days do. I think MGTOW originally had the right idea but now it has turned into more of an incel point of view - people who cannot get laid say they are mgtow because it is a convienient excuse for their own failures.

Then suddenly my daughter burst into the bathroom holding her phone. As I began to mansplain to her why she isn't smart enough to know my shaving time is my time she showed me the new Gillette ad. I realized how my every view and behavior I've ever held dear was wrong. I'm calling in sick at the toxic masculinity factory today and registering Democrat.

The only reason companies take official stances on social issues is because women (who are the targets of these ads) make the majority of household purchasing decisions. Women are simple-minded enough to be influenced by an empty sentiment like this and blow money on shitty razors.

Meanwhile, informed and thrifty men save money by using a stainless steel safety razor with two-cent blades or a straight-razor, rather than spending nearly $3 for each replacement Mach3 blade.

That's the secret to wealth - find your con and play it. All the better if it targets women, since they are so susceptible to marketing disguised with platitudes.

Get you to think a certain brand is cool and others are shit. A certain political party is right and the other is wrong. This fast food is better than that fast food, shit the whole metoo movement against "toxic masculinity" is feminist programming.

I actually read an article yesterday about an executive who quit facebook who blatantly said you're being programmed by social media. In fact the guy who invented the "like" feature in it, albeit unknowingly created a mini dopamine high for users. Because people post something and get a little validation seeing their post was liked. So they post more things looking for more likes. The guys exact words with regards to ALL social media is "I don't use any of that shit anymore".

So my feelings are the big shots at Proctor and Gamble advertising agency, which is highly likely liberal, and feminists combined came up with this ad to push more of their bullshit agenda down viewers throats.

But I'm sure some men like to shave their pussies with Gillette.

I think that it is a very blue pill idea to look outside of yourself for how you are supposed to behave. You do you. Let the rest of the world sort itself out.

Use electric shavers. Norelco makes a fine product. Better yet, grow the beard, bitches love the beard.

For what reason are companies choosing to Go Woke and Get Broke?

Are they really going broke though? Most of the country agrees with this shit. Don't underestimate the stupidity of the average person in the west now.

President Trump still decided to pump taxpayer's money into buying Burger King

He paid with his own money. Even if he used public funds, it's none of your business since you're evidently not American.

[-] ScottyMo1 1 Point 8 months ago

Trump did not spend taxpayer money on Burger King goods. He spent his own money to buy Burger King, McDonald’s and Wendy’s for his guests.

Stuff like this tends to highlight the pros and cons of the MGTOW methodology. To be fair, if people are talking about the ad, the the Gilette marketing team has done it's job. But it only reinforces the open "Fuck You" and lose/lose reality for men in modern times. The system is rigged against you, guys, you can't win here. As redpillschool always says - Alpha is not a safeguard.

I think MGTOW is wrong in the idea of cutting women completely out of your life. Also that sex is something you can live without ( Though not all lean that way) That's not how we are designed and outside from some outlier people/situations, it's a road that will likely lead to more problems.

I think MGTOW is right in the idea that every interaction with women, esp in the modern Western world, is simply turning into an open lose/lose situation. I also think MGTOW in general does a better job than TRP about discussing the value and risk/reward matrix for the value of your precious precious time on this Earth. Women are time sinks. TRP tends to talk about the value of your time but tends to avoid how much of a time sink women can be because it conflicts with maximum sexual strategy.

The answer is always the same. Outsource everything. Go to where it's legal with consenting adults and pay for it. (You are not paying for the sex, you are paying for the silence afterwards) Use gaming/day game/Tinder/whatever as a supplement to this if you wish. If you want a kid, adopt or use surrogates. Hire nannies and teachers and nurses or whatever once you get your money right. If you want just some companionship sometimes, hire a woman to pretend to care and listen to your problems and spoon with you and hold your hand.

Women treat men like a baseball bullpen. Specialists. This guy for dick. This guy for his money. This guy for free shit. This guy for attention. This guy to fix my car for free. Etc. Etc.

Men need to do the same to them. Bitch, you are just a long reliever. Sorry Stacy, you are on mop up duty. What's that Tori? No complaining, you are the Lefty One Out Girl onlY. You're my 8th inning plate. And you, you get to by my closer.. for now.

Only the left boycotts and gets coverage and praise from their boycotts from the media. Therefore, as a business, you need to appease them. The right almost never boycotts and will continue to purchase Gillette. That's why a business doesn't need to worry about pandering to them or pissing them off. They'll buy your stuff regardless so it's a waste. But you CANNOT piss off the left cuz they love boycotts.

Why wouldn't it work? Women spend 80% of the money. They are targeting you they're targeting the people who spend money and are easier to manipulate. I would not at all be surprised if this increased their sales.

If a strong independent woman go out of the house alone at night and get into a construction site then better she can defend herself. Isn't she strong?

Sexual harassment is a real problem. Don't like Gillette's approach? What's yours?

[-] BadMoles 2 Points 8 months ago

Simple. I don’t sexually harass. What’s yours?

[-] maljo24 0 Points 8 months ago

Good for you but doesn't solve the problem on our planet. But then you know your answer is glib and unhelpful.

[-] BadMoles 1 Point 8 months ago

It solves the problem where I have control over it - interactions between me and women I meet, work with, socialise with, etc. I will also teach my son to interact respectfully with women and girls as he grows up

I’m doing exactly what I can within my own power and not trying to virtue signal that I can fix the problems of the world - which in my view is a vanity that many people espouse by on social media without actually doing anything.

I repeat the question : What are you doing?
