Gillette just TRIPLED DOWN on their insane advertising with yet another ad of a Black transgender person. Of course, a "woke" woman is the P&G exec. behind this. I guess she didn't date much when younger. :rolleyes:

Can someone please explain what this “woke” thing is? I’m assuming it doesn’t mean “no longer asleep”.

@Bogeyman is it the black or transgender part you’re objecting to?
Stay woke became a watch word in parts of the black community (in the USA) for those who were self-aware, questioning the dominant paradigm and striving for something better. But stay woke and woke became part of a wider discussion in 2014, immediately following the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. The word woke became entwined with the Black Lives Matter movement; instead of just being a word that signaled awareness of injustice or racial tension, it became a word of action. Activists were woke and called on others to stay woke.


It's a BS "movement" to excuse criminal Black behavior, i.e., "thugs". I oppose any group who tries to obtain favored "protection" or who preaches that criminal behavior is really the norm and that the reason for their behavior, e.g., robbery, rape, murder, etc., is because they have been "victimized" in the past. However, this newest Gillette video is trying to shove down the collective public throat the fallacy that transgender is normal and that anyone who opposes it is a POS. Of course, for added effect they made sure it was a minority so if anyone complained the Left could fall back to their "Siegfried Line" of defense which is called "racism". The country is torn asunder politically and it is looking as if another civil war is imminent to be frank.

I’ve just watched the advert, I don’t have a problem with that one either. Considering the number of LGBT people who are not accepted by their parents, the very people who are supposed to love and support them the most, I have no problem with showing the father of a trans man supporting his son.

To be honest I’m having a hard time seeing anything objectionable about the advert at all.

I disagree completely.

I think the advert is a f*cking disgrace.

Seriously shaving against the grain on your neck with a 5 blade razor head? That's a recipe for ingrowns. I'm not even going to talk about the lack of prep.

FFS, a single blade razor (double at most) with proper prep/lather not just shitty gel from a can.

Pfft.

Makes me furious.

(IMO, should have been a Tech/7OC Yellow, Boar brush & Cella)

My two pence!
I do not give a hoot.
I have been on many a racing grid where women are "used" the girls will say "it's just a job"
I have seen many women batter their partners and children and Vica Versa. When you get involved the focus of both changes.
This is a shaving forum to enjoy the fantastic craic about shaving. Please leave the BS for the tabloids.
By the way I am watching the fantastic " Les Miserables" YMMV.
That's all folks
