Oh for fucks sake.
I think the video itself was absolutely beautiful and is carrying an important message. However, they completely missed the point of the Gillette ad. It didn't say men are evil in the slightest, just that they should stand up against harassment, bullying, violence etc. and be good role models for the next generation.
Also, I don't think "We see the good in men" is a good slogan when you're citing statistics of war, suicide, homeless people etc. Like what has one to do with the other?
Yes, men suffer. Yes, we should work on helping them. But why can't we just all work together to makke the world a better place for everyone?
I just don't get this whole us vs. them mentality. If they recognize the flaws of the Gillette ad, why not make a better one? Why not include everyone in the message?

Hahahaha. Really good!
This is my favorite thing I've read all month.
Not all men do,
but any man could.
That's why we say "men do this" and "men do that".
Because you can't tell who is which until it's too late.
How freaking weird is it that this sub had nothing about the women's march all week! I didn't even know it was happening until after this year! Everything was just about Gillette
I like Thought Slime's take on snowflakes.
Individually, each snowflake might be weak and not achieve much. But if we get all the snowflakes together, and point them in the same direction, you know what you have? A fucking avalanche.
I don't like this, it's just a more sophisticated version of the 😂 emoji. I get that it's satisfying, but we need to move beyond being mean to people because they were mean to us.
It also sends a weird message, like she's daring men to be even less emotionally aware and "fragile." People are emotional, that's a good thing. I'd rather see a sign that says "I guess we're all snowflakes now, eh boys?" Something mocking yet also containing some kind of olive branch.
Content Warning: Outcome of situations lead to difficulties for men but, hey presto, women take the brunt of it somehow, again.
Sounds about right.
It seems so often in my interests, as many of them are male dominated, that I am slowly becoming everyone's enemy and my hobbies I can only enjoy by myself anymore because I'm not a man.
Let 'em be butthurt. No one ever got anywhere in life playing the victim, they're only hurting themselves by being such babies
Instant fucking turn off, ugh. Fuck us for wanting equality across the spectrum
The wild thing about Pandora is that Zeus set out to create the most wicked and awful creature he could so he could "torture" mortal men. He gave Pandora the box because he knew such a vile creation couldn't resist but to open it.
I love Greek myth but DAMN did they have a weird relationship with women.
What's this Gillette razor doing in the box? How will that cause chaos?
Ahhh my dog definitely hears these things a lot lately. "Oohhhhh sweet little cute little puppy wuppy... you're the only thing I have to live for anymore aren't you? Yes you are!"
Am I missing something here? They can't possibly mean this.
It’s all in your head. Now you know.
... now I know that I’m never coming back here
I'm afraid I don't understand. What does this mean?
Ignoring the message for a moment - wtf is up with the little people falling out of the rainbow? I'll be the first to admit that I never get symbolism and the hidden meanings so this one really confounds me. Does it even have a meaning?
criiiinnge Time to find a new doctor...
I would walk out of the office. Not going to play around with that nonsense after waiting 8 years to get diagnosed with endo and being told that over and over and over again.
I mean, from a philisophical perspective, sure? But that's not what I need from a doctor I am seeing for physical issues.
Is C short for cunt? Because that's what they are if they're serious.
On days like that I have to ask myself if I’ve been taking my vitamins.
Vitamin D and B12 do a lot for my mood.
If you are open to advice, journaling helps me at lesst figure out the emotional element. I find once that part is cleared up it is a lot easier to problem solve the rest of it.
