Check out this man hating ad that Gillette just put out.



I think Gillette forgot that it doesn't sell tampons.

I'm also starting to think that #MeToo has been co-opted by corporations as in "You went broke after going full SJW? MeToo."



Feel free to list any other poor advertising decisions of this vein here. There's a lot of them.

Funny, the dummy doesn't think women use razors or shaving creams. When he thinks of women all he thinks is tampons. Yep funny...

On the subject of razors, here's another great one from late last year.



Yay! The fake pink tax!

Comically, they even solve their own problem right in the commercial when the women dump out the junk food from the pink boxes to not pay the additional fee.

I think they should take it a step further and stop buying that poison that goes straight to their asses and makes them have to go pay for new jeans that are no doubt far more expensive than the ones I get at Goodwill for 9 bucks... but it's a free country and who am I to Mansplain common sense and good health to strong, independent women who have poor diets and pay way to much for shit.



Hey! I got a great idea.

If the ladies seriously want to shave their legs with the black razors that I shave my face with and have nicks and cuts all down them, there are going to be plenty of surplus mens razors in the Gillette warehouses after their bullshit advertisement.

It's a win/win for everybody!



They'll still be paying far more than I do though since I use Dollar Shave Club.

Seriously... you're a fucking idiot if you pay full price for razors in 2019. Pink Tax or not.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Thanks, Gillette, for having the balls to say what needed to be said. No matter how idiots take it and twist it.

And last summer, when my 11-year-old son’s soccer coach pulled me aside after practice to tell me Tristan started crying so he sat out for a bit, I didn’t give him the “man up” talk like I know the coach wanted me to. Instead, I bought him an ice cream cone and told him to tell me everything. Then we sat at McDonalds and talked about sports, and frustration, and how crying is normal. We talked about how playing sports isn’t about being the best, but about growth. It’s about showing up and trying, really trying. It’s about gaining skills, and how your whole life will be like this: sports, school, work, family.

Then I asked him if he was going to quit soccer. He took a bite of his cone and said, “No. I’m going to keep trying.”

ESPN is finally getting it.

It only took them 8 years.

Quote:

A top ESPN executive has admitted that the network’s move toward politics may have been poison to its ratings.

Norby Williamson told the Washington Post in an interview earlier this week that the network has since reversed course on that focus, helping goose its ratings.

Still, Williamson told the WaPo that the politics on the network’s flagship SportsCenter damaged ratings. .

I think we miscalculated a little bit,” Williamson said. “The perception became that you could just roll a talent out there and it doesn’t matter what he or she is saying — that the content didn’t matter. I just never believed that.”

Hosts Jemele Hill and Michael Smith were the focus of the political turn. Both have since left the network. Since their departures, the 6 PM SportsCenter has seen “eight straight months of growth,” according to the WaPo. The ratings took an immediate turn upward when the two were gone.

I didn't have a trust fund, and I was the wrong color to get a free ride.

I couldn't even get any FASFA assistance until I was 25, even though I had been on my own since I was 18 years old without taking outrageous steps to make my parents look like assholes in the eyes of the federal government by getting handwritten letters from individuals such as cops, priests, psychiatrists, etc. No matter how crap my parents did raising us, I wasn't going to do that.

Until half of our good jobs were shipped overseas and/or replaced with automation, it didn't matter. I've made quite a bit over $50k/year at several jobs in my life. Now I'm competing with a bunch of college graduates every year that were able to get even better jobs before but all have to settle for less. Not having a college degree didn't turn out to be a problem until well in my 30's.


Sure. I might be jealous of their easy chance at what I was never able to get, but I'm twice as smart as 90% of them, so you'll never find me jealous of their abilities other than being able to show them the worthless paper that is a college degree.



I'm not going to let you get me down either. I'm dealing with a lot right now, but I'm going to figure it out.

What a real piece of shit you are, BTW.

Here's a thought.... You could have PAID your way. Like Hubby did. Neuro disorder, childhood from hell... He sure didn't get no "Free Ride." When we met he was 30k in debt because of his degree, but we paid it off. He didn't sit around and whine about not getting a free ride. Hell, even my dad managed to switch careers at 47.

Oh, and they are paying $500 sign on bonuses at two companies here because they need people so bad. There's still a billion jobs in this country if you'd get off your ass.

Seriously, you "dealing with stuff" doesn't give you a free pass to make fun of kids who are "dealing with stuff."

Buck. up. Buttercup.

18 to 22 year olds aren't kids. Even if they still behave like them because they've been coddled all of their life.

Yes, they ARE still kids.

Although brain development is subject to significant individual variation, most experts suggest that the brain is fully developed by age 25. For some people, brain development may be complete prior to age 25, while for others it may end after age 25. The mid-20s or “25” is just an average age given as checkpoint for when the brain has likely become mature.

So what that their brains are still developing? They're not kids at 18.

Shortly after that happens they get a few years before their body starts making downward progress without doing stuff to hold that tide back. By the time you're elderly, half of your friends that are still alive are going to act like children anyhow.

Our bodies are always changing.


Quote:

From the 1500s onward, till around the year 1800, life expectancy throughout Europe hovered between 30 and 40 years of age. Since the early 1800s, Finch writes that life expectancy at birth has doubled in a period of only 10 or so generations.


Do you think that in 1800, 35 year olds were going around calling 25 year olds "kids", when they were on death's door themselves?

Just because we live longer doesn't mean we get to be kids for an extra 5 to 10 years.



Fast forward to today. By the time you're 18, you're old enough to vote, old enough to go to war, old enough to buy cigarettes, old enough to buy booze and gamble in some states, old enough to get married, old enough to go off on your own to college, old enough to work any job in the country and run any machinery that is deemed illegal to operate by minors.

Then there's the fact that there's no limits on what age you can make the very adult decision to fuck whoever you want so long as they're age appropriate.


Just because the generation currently graduating college has been coddled all of their lives to the point that a great deal of them come back home to continue leaching off of their parents when they get their useless degrees in liberal arts and finally figure out that nothing is fair in the world, that doesn't mean they weren't adults when they were 18.

Face facts, buttercup. You're an old lady now and your kid is almost an adult herself.

Maybe you didn't teach her any lessons that will make her strong after college so she'll fulfill your fantasy of being able to have your "kid" living with you forever, but that doesn't mean that she's not going to be an actual adult very soon.

You are sucha hypocrite. (And a science denier.)

You whine that you didn't get a free ride, and then you complain that kids that live with their parents are so they can afford to pay their bills are "coddled".

Affordable college would have been nice. The government wouldn't even think of giving me a leg up since I was out on my own at 18. It didn't matter that I was on my own, my parents made too much money for FASFA loans and grants that are available to almost 100% of people who were in my situation at that time.

There was no coddling in my childhood either. Just a lot of abuse, and having to be the latchkey kid who was watching my brothers everyday. I was more adult at 12 years old than most college kids who graduate and move back in with their parents.

But go ahead. Coddle the shit out of your kid until she's 25 since that's the age you seem to think that kids magically become adults.

When she still acts like a kid at 30 and never grows up after that, don't ask me why.

As mentioned in another forum here, MAD magazine is no longer with us.

In the early to mid 2000's they started taking ad-revenue and putting ads in their magazine. They were rather tongue-in-cheek about it in MAD-fashion at the time, but that was the beginning of their downfall.

From that point onward, they were beholden to their new Corporate Masters and they lost the edginess that made them a great magazine in the first place. In recent times, just like most other forms of entertainment, they became extremely woke and just another mouthpiece for leftist agendas.

RIP MAD Magazine. Even though you died at least 15 years ago.

Oh, and if you'd like to see another MAD-esque example of this happening online right now, I invite you to check out https://www.cracked.com/

This website was hilariously edgy in the mid-to-late 2000's. It's practically unreadable in 2019. I haven't even bothered to look to see if they even kept any of their old articles archived. I'd imagine they have, just to say that they weren't purging them, since a lot of stuff wasn't very politically charged at the time. It wouldn't surprise me if a lot of their old content has been dumped though since it seems they serve the SJW crowd today and they'd surely be bitching about a lot of their old stuff.
