Gillette can officially go fuck themselves

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_C._Gillette


King C. Gillette was also a Utopian Socialist.[13] He published a book titled The Human Drift (1894)[14] which advocated that all industry should be taken over by a single corporation owned by the public, and that everyone in the US should live in a giant city called Metropolis powered by Niagara Falls. A later book, World Corporation(1910)[15] was a prospectus for a company set up to create this vision. He offered Theodore Roosevelt the presidency of the company, with a fee of one million dollars.[16] (Roosevelt declined the offer.) Gillette's last book, The People's Corporation (1924),[17] was written with Upton Sinclair and later inspired Glen H. Taylor. Gillette was initiated to the York Rite of Freemasonry[18][19][20][21], till his elevation to the highest degree of Grand Master.

Ya, I think Im gonna buy a Schick now. Gillette put up a flag, lets see what the consumer thinks of that.

Edit: From the comments:

"List of Proctor and Gamble brands including Gillette which you should avoid.



Bounty (paper towels)

Crest (toothpaste)

Dawn (dishwashing)

Downy (fabric softener)

Febreze (odor elimnator)

Gain (laundry)

Gillette (shaving)

Head & Shoulders (shampoo)

Olay (beauty)

Oral-B (dental)

Pantene (hair)

Tide (laundry)

Vicks (cough and cold)



There are more but these are some of the big ones. P&G is a mega company and Gillette is just one of the brands they own."

You are kidding right?

That ad isn't selling razors, it's more anti white male propaganda.

lol

I don't know that guy btw ^^, was at the top of my twitter and thought of all of you :D

I think sometimes how making a conscious effort to end certain outdated stereotypes and attitudes re; sexism, racism etc overall is a reasonable idea. Who can doubt this?

Its just when people/orgs over-do this, take it too far, be too blunt/overt/in your face about it all, it comes off so wrong and actually doesn't help anything, just adds gasoline to whatever fires may still be burning. If anything all these recent attempts to break down old ways and force integration etc has possibly even made things worse, drawn even more attention to the ideas.

Not sure if this is mostly good intentions done wrong/backfiring, or if the goal itself sometimes may be to trigger controversy and polarize issues even further by design,

A bit of both I suspect

There sure seems to be a lot of it these days, coming down with a heavy hammer.
