Gillette launches WOKEST new ad yet: A proud dad teaching his no-longer-daughter how to shave ‘his’ beard

Gillette razors is in the hot race for wokest thing ever. I’m sure you remember their past entries, the overweight swimmer ad and the “boys are bad and should stop” ad.

Well part three of this ignominious trilogy is the solution for two, I guess. Boys are bad, boys should stop being boys, and girls are good. So it stands to reason, apparently, that it should be girls who are the boys.

And here we are.



“I went into my transition just wanting to be happy. I’m glad I’m at the point where I’m able to shave.”

I’m guessing that people who can say that number in the dozens to hundreds. Even if you exaggerate to the thousands, that ain’t exactly a hot new market. So if they’re not advertising to a big, untapped market …who are they making the ad for?

Obviously y’all already know the answer. It’s to the woke brigades from woketown, riding their wokercycles and scooping up triggers.

It doesn’t matter if it results in sales. Corporate America has two audiences now. One is the people who buy and use their products, and the other are the loudmouth, whiney, nutty, Hollywood-ish, foot-stomping, sign-waving, boycott-organizing liberal mobs of wokety wokeness.

And this ad, obviously, is for them.

I hope that kid has a great life. I hope that for every kid who is somehow allowed to reject their body and identity while too young to even bre familiar with it. But, you know, the odds aren’t great.

Best quote on the interwebs about so-called “transgenders”:

Ironic how the transgenders community wants us to accept them for who they are but yet they couldn’t even accept themselves for who they were.

Corporate America only has one audience: the paying audience. These ads don’t get made unless Gillette thinks the ads will help it make money.

Hollywood, all leftists, all liberal mobs, I hope they buy my portion of Gillette products to keep this God-forsaken company afloat. This company is digging itself into a hole with this garbage. Everyday Americans make up a bigger percentage of people who are normal and dont support freaks. When will these companies realize that instead of focusing in on the 1 or 2%?

Gillette is a trillion dollar company which sells its products worldwide. You don’t think they worked the numbers before releasing ads like this? They have. Losing a few thousand Trumpelina’s is not going to affect their bottom line one tiny bit.

Remember how Oreo was going to go bankrupt when it released rainbow cookies a few years ago? They didn’t. People still spend 2.5 billion on Oreo’s a year.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mondelez-results/oreo-maker-mondelezs-profit-beats-on-higher-demand-for-key-brands-idUSKBN1FK34A

Remember hoe Keurig was going to go bankrupt by your hands? it didn’t. The company made $41.089B last year.

https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/KDP/keurig-dr-pepper/net-worth

Remember NIKE? They just came off one of their most successful years ever with $129.13B!

The 1 or 2% is actually less than you all combined and they’ve crunched the stats beforehand.

Gillette will be more than alright. What else are people going to buy to place in dad’s Xmas stocking every year?

2nd Vote recommends the parent company of Schick, Edgewell Personal Care. I would also recommend Barbasol. I think they hit Barbasol a little hard because of one organization in their roster of supported orgs.

2nd Vote’s report.

Interestingly, Edgewell recently purchased Harry’s, a liberal company. Will Edgewell change Harry’s? Will 2nd Vote ding Edgewell if Harry’s doesn’t?

Well after neigh on 40 years of using Gillette razors without really thinking about it, I finished my last Gillette razor last week. I went to Walmart and bought some Harry’s. They are fine so far. I will probably stop thinking about that brand too… and just keep buying them.
I guess I am not racist… oops. … I mean woke.

Their quality has deteriorated while pricing is up. I’ve used the Mach 3 for decades but these last few times the blades are horrible. I was planning on switching to Harry’s after I finish my set. Thanks for making me feel better about my decision.

According to the wikipedia page (yes, it’s wikipedia), Gillete is owned by Proctor & Gamble.

Braun and Oral-B ard subsidiaries under Gillette.

That’s a massive pile of products to stop buying, but I don’t want them to have any money of mine.

And it doesn’t stop them from suiciding either. Too many ignorant people think that if we don’t allow them to transition that they will commit suicide but tragically the rates actually go up AFTER they transition. These poor mentally ill souls find out after they’ve mutilated themselves and gotten all kinds of “support” that the mental and spiritual pain they were experiencing is not going away because gender identity had nothing to do with what was really wrong with them. Doctors are now frightening parents with the specter of suicide to force them to allow their kids to transition. So the tragedy is doubly compounded.

AvatarLAPhil I don’t know about organized boycotts but I do know that generally speaking I personally avoid patronizing products, companies, or persons (i.e. actors) that disgust me. It’s why I haven’t set foot in a Target store in a few years, why I will never again see a Robert DeNiro film, and why Gillette will never again get a dime of my money.

A few questions.
1. Does Gillette really believe tapping into a very low percentage degenerate market will bring a gold mine of riches?
2. Is it really Gillette’s intention to reject over 50% of it’s customer base?
3. I can’t be the only male that didn’t need a personal trainer to coach me in the art of shaving, can I?

Gillette must be run by morons these days. Perhaps the older board members have died off and younger, more ignorant members have taken over the asylum. It sure seems that way. How absolutely tone deaf can they be? I wouldn’t buy a Gillette product now if they were giving them away. @@

We need an organized group- like a tea party on steroids, who can organize nationwide boycotts of companies like htis so that when the people boycott en mass- it has a real tangible effect- individual boycotts do nothing- but get a few hundred 1000 people boycotting, or a few million even, and it’s a different ballgame

I switched to an old school safety razor (the one our grandparents used) and single edge blade (think old west shave) years ago and haven’t looked back. Razor blades are dirt cheap, and there isn’t a thing those multi-blade Gillette razors can do that my “old tech” razors can’t do better.

Good Lord, this is NEW LEVEL insanity… Gillette has released an ad featuring a GIRL, who claims that she’s MALE, being taught by her dad to “shave”… What is this? It’s NUTSO… It’s Orwellian… Gillette is a craven, anti-science, lie-pushing company that NO person in his or her right mind should EVER use for any reason… It’s time for Americans to drive INSANITY from the marketplace, and to put companies with a political agenda OUT OF BUSINESS.
