    Hello. Seriously, can we honestly examine WHO is supporting the concept or condition of 'Toxic Masculinity'.

    Are Americans believing in the concept of 'Toxic Masculinity', the same people primarily responsible for creating our Nation's easily PREVENTABLE, though potentially life scarring *CHILD CARE* PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS?

    I am referring to a *CHILD CARE* PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS responsible for our Nation's medical professionals indirectly DECLARING WAR on a significant population of mostly American MOTHERS failing to recognize that placing ABOVE ALL ELSE the emotional well being of our Nation's most precious and cherished assets, will most likely result with a fairly or wonderfully happy child maturing into a reasonably responsible teen and adult citizen caring about their own well being, as well as embracing compassion, empathy and respect for their peaceful and less fortunate neighbors.

    A few of these medical professionals are Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, MD, FAAP, MPH, pediatrician & CEO of the 'Center For Youth Wellness. Dr. Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment and Dr. Bruce Perry, MD, Ph.D, Senior Fellow of the Child Trauma Academy in Houston, Texas and an Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois.

    Medical Doctors Declare WAR.jpg

    It is a fact each of these medical doctors believe a National, as well as Worldwide Movement is required, educating our planet's population of primary child caregivers about our planet's #1 GLOBAL*CHILD CARE* PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS:

    A potentially life scarring medical disease and condition known as 'Childhood Trauma' or 'Adverse Childhood Experiences' (#ACEs).

    In my opinion, the more important question is, "Who in western culture is primarily responsible for raising, nurturing and socializing perfectly healthy newborns maturing into teens and adults lacking respect for girls and women."

    Ask yourself, why today, are growing numbers of men, as well as women using denigrating terms "B*tch and HOE" when speaking about or describing women?

    Let's be honest, the UNHEALTHY condition of SINGLE FEMALE PARENTING is causing great harm to our Nation's most precious and cherished assets.

    If you disagree, please do not even attempt arguing with me, take your comments and criticisms directly to the medical professionals and researchers dealing with and treating our Nation's expanding population of depressed, emotionally troubled #FATHERLESS children, teens and ADULTS!

    Regardless of what one thinks about the underlying issues ... companies are always stepping on thin ice when they enter the realm of politics / social issues.
    Sell your products. Make money for your shareholders. Avoid controversy.

    Gillette just took down the links on their website for their live chat and 'contact us'. On You Tube the Gillette ad has 55k likes and 293k dislikes. Gillette is reeling and it is beginning to look like this ad may be one of the bigger corporate self inflicted wounds in decades.

    THIS THIS THIS THIS!!!! Well said!!

    Bullying and sexism are NOT characteristics of a single sex and anyone who is stupid enough to attribute them to one sex doesn't have a clue what they mean.

    This is exactly why the term toxic masculinity and this commercial are by definition Sexist.

    Someone posted on their YouTube sight saying there were 41 visuals of males acting badly and only one was black.......whereas there were 7 visuals of males acting ‘appropriately’ and 5 were black. This isn’t a coincidence folks...........it’s very deep propaganda........

    why ignore the suggestion that only men can be bad, or why they only depicted 'blue collar' men with their grills... the fact is, the majority of racists/woman hating men run fortune 500 companies , aka elitists...

    I feel bad for any man that buys into this nonsense. I know it is stupid but the left keeps pushing this kind of garbage.

    In a Christian nation like the US the Bible is obviously to blame to much of the hatred towards women....the NT tells women to shut the hell up (First Corinthians 14:33–35), so obviously Jesus and pals hate women, and Jesus and pals are seen as the #1 role model in America, so obviously this creates a hatred of women in America. I blame Jesus.

    A sane person with Jesus' alleged superpowers would of course come down and try to teach us "sorry, the Bible screwed up, women should NOT have to shut the hell up - please forgive me." I'd forgive him, because I forgive more than Jesus does (I'd forgive ethical Buddhists and let them into "heaven", of course, unlike the unforgiving Jesus.)

    Yes, I too have heard that many many of the women being snuck illegally across our border get raped by the very (vile) men who are getting paid to transport them. Sex-trafficking is also a big issue. Yet Democrats are still prioritizing getting more future Democratic voters ("a border wall is immoral") over trying to end this border crisis. 90% of certain drugs come across that border. A crisis indeed!

    If YOU had Jesus' alleged superpowers, doombug, would YOU have come down recently and said "sorry, the Bible screwed up, women should NOT have to shut the hell up - please forgive me."?

    I would.....I assume that you care about women as much as I do?

    One thing that boys should not do is discriminate/harm gays like the Bible fully approves of. They need a better role model than the Bible, of course (that's part of the problem.)
    http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/gay/long.htm

    God HATES gays, so boys will not want to follow god's ethical lead, obviously. It's time we move past Jesus' morality.

    Then tell us exactly where I'm wrong (I don't think you can, however, since I linked to an exact Bible verse that teaches hatred towards women.)

    The Bible was written by man, right?
    It follows that all ideas in the Bible are man's.
    The Bible is to blame for nothing

    Seems unwieldy. But, comes with it's own defense mechanism, so there is that.

    Oh hell no!

    I watched a bit of the ad.. I was embarrassed that anyone in the ad agency tho't that was a good ad.
    And what a bigoted and discriminatory screed towards men.
    I won't boycott them , however, don't have too, stopped using those "fancy" multiblade razors a long time ago (they clog up and become useless quickly) and went to using an old fashioned 'safety razor" to trim my beard (which my wife loves!)
    But all means, if you buy into that stereo type of men, resist.. It'll leave more women for the rest of us guys.

    What's more amusing and beyond egocentric is for you to assume to know what Jesus thought or would feel like.

    No problem.


    First, Jesus regularly addressed women directly while in public. This was unusual for a man to do (John 4:27). The disciples were amazed to see Jesus talking with the Samaritan woman at the well of Sychar (John 4:7-26). He also spoke freely with the woman taken in adultery (John 8:10–11).6 Luke, who gives ample attention to women in his Gospel, notes that Jesus spoke publicly with the widow of Nain (Luke 7:12–13), the woman with the bleeding disorder (Luke 8:48; cf. Matt. 9:22; Mark 5:34), and a woman who called to him from a crowd (Luke 11:27–28). Similarly, Jesus addressed a woman bent over for eighteen years (Luke 13:12) and a group of women on the route to the cross (Luke 23:27-31).

    A second aspect of Jesus’s regard for the full intrinsic value of women is seen in how he spoke to the women he addressed. He spoke in a thoughtful, caring manner. Each synoptic writer records Jesus addressing the woman with the bleeding disorder tenderly as “daughter” (references above) and referring to the bent woman as a “daughter of Abraham” (Luke 13:16). Bloesch infers that “Jesus called the Jewish women ‘daughters of Abraham’ (Luke 13:16), thereby according them a spiritual status equal to that of men.”7

    Third, Jesus did not gloss over sin in the lives of the women he met. He held women personally responsible for their own sin as seen in his dealings with the woman at the well (John 4:16–18), the woman taken in adultery (John 8:10–11), and the sinful woman who anointed his feet (Luke 7:44–50). Their sin was not condoned, but confronted. Each had the personal freedom and a measure of self-determination to deal with the issues of sin, repentance, and forgiveness.

    Who saying only men can be bad?
    Jesus do you see breast cancer awareness ads and think they’re saying to ignore other cancers??
