    :confused: All I said - for the 5th time - is that, while there is no doubt that the ad flirts with the whole... Never mind... it's not worth it. Carry on - please proceed with the outrage... I'm sure it'll do a lot of good. I'm out.

    You and the 50 other people in the country who watch TYT caught that. I had to go back and re-watch the ad after you pointed it out, myself, and I consider myself to be unfortunately more aware of pop-media like TYT than even the above-average news consumer. I'm not sure why I'm staying in the pocket in this thread, but I didn't see advocacy for special treatment for "every other group" in this ad. There were black and white men in the ad, on both sides of the subject material. There is no doubt that there is a subplot to MOST modern media these days where men are portrayed not only as predators, but as a group in need of heeling. As I watch this ad, there's no question they dance around that subject matter, but I think they do a good job of keeping it impartial in terms of race, and also within the bounds of concerns which all decent people should have - again, namely objectification of women, bullying and brawling. I've asked before, please point out what I'm missing here... and again, within the context of this particular ad.

    I suppose when one holds a sixth grade schoolyard bully cum POTUS as one's hero, we can't expect much better. Sad state of affairs overall. And please do not keep your opinions to yourself. Even on those occasions when I disagree your opinion, unlike those of some around here, yours is always worth the effort to read and digest.

    I think most men exhibit poor behavior. I don't know that most men exhibit the behavior in the ad. Maybe they do. I think a lot do. I'd agree with you that decent men don't need to be lectured about it. Speaking personally, I didn't feel as though the ad was speaking to me. Couldn't agree more. I wasn't offended, and it's not a good way to sell razors. Again, I just didn't see the ANTI-MALE angle that was suggested by the OP and the thread title. It's not ANTI-MALE. The ad didn't say, "ALL YOU MEN - YOU SUCK. CUT OFF YOUR BALLS AND BOW BEFORE WOMEN". I mean, unless I missed that. Maybe UWDUDE used some mind-magic on me and I missed it. :shrug:

    It's fait accompli. And I think what you meant is that you need a challenged victim... someone more in line with your skillset. Tell ya what, you practice your virtual mind magic on someone who finds that interesting, and next time I'll just keep my opinions to myself, so you don't have to deplete your mental faculties on such a meager "victim" as myself, mkay?

    Holy shit. I guess we watched different ads. Whatever. I didn't blame anything on "all men", and I didn't accuse you or anyone of bullying anyone, or anything like that. ALL I SAID WAS I DIDN'T THINK THIS AD WAS SOME ANTI-MALE PROPAGANDA PIECE. Jeezus, this place sometimes...

    I think this is just outrage-porn for the conservative-cum-libertarian type, and - again - it's no better than snowflake behavior quite frankly. There are things in the world to be outraged by, to be sure. And I'd agree that this ad flirts with the whole *men 're bad, mkay* culture d'jour... but let's have a little sense about us - nothing about this ad was emasculating; nothing about it tore down the traditional conception of masculinity... unless you associate the poor behaviors of cat-calling, brawling and bullying with masculinity. But then that would be on you, not the ad.

    I didn't, but I could see where one might get that impression. But I think that most men exhibit poor behavior these days, and that they could benefit from the message that I got myself - that objectifying women, bullying, and brawling isn't behavior that gentlemen exhibit. Nothing wrong with that.

    Why, because I didn't feel bad about myself as a man when I watched this ad? Or because I'm not outraged about this ad? You want me to be pissed off about things, I can be pissed off about things. This just doesn't rate for me. Sorry. And again, if we want to look like a bunch of cranks who can't hold their shit together every time someone sneezes in a way we don't approve, good luck doing anything about the things that piss you off. The people around you are gonna just be like, "yeah yeah, I hear ya", then turn their backs and say "oooookay, whackadoo".

    It's an ad for men's shaving cream, so... Calm down a little. Speaking for myself, I didn't feel the least bit bad about myself as a man when I watched that ad. If you did, maybe you need to work on you a little bit.

    Or that your antennae are too sensitive... Most people will watch that ad and find very little to be objectionable. And most people would be right. The clear takeaways there are that bullying, brawling, and objectifying women are poor behaviors for gentlemen to model. And that is entirely correct. Yes, I understand that within the context of the current paradigm, it would be easy enough to suss out an SJW narrative here, but we shouldn't be running around looking for goblins behind every blade of grass - there was nothing emasculating about the ad, and that's frankly a victory in today's climate. I found nothing about the ad to be particularly anti-male. If I'm missing something, please point it out.

    Ah, gotcha. Yes, I can't imagine shaving outdoors in the winter is particularly pleasant. For the record, that wasn't exactly what I was peddling... more the idea that facial hair is somehow tied to masculinity. I contend that the fellow being portrayed in that scene was more of a man than anyone trotting around with a manicured beard these days, but that's just me maybe...
