            @DisabledUser258318: Wet shaving, gives a better shave and like a true Ozbargainer you'll save a fortune.
            After I finish my dollar shave club cartridges I'm going to move to wet shaving.

              @Wystri Warrick: Have you tried it before? I just have images of blood whenever I think of wet shaving. I'm a bit clumsy and I'm not sure how I would go with a straight-razor lol

              @Wystri Warrick: Damn I tried using this clubs razors, had all 3 kinds, the 2 blade was a disaster, cut after cut, 4 blade was better but gave my skin a lot of irritation, 6 blade was good can’t complain, but still worse than mach3, also didn’t last as long as mach3.
              Wet shaving that’s first time I hear I’ll google it thanks ah I know it’s the razor and blades deal that were around recently, yeah may try that once I’m done with my mach3 stash, about 40 blades left

          Proctor & Gamble handing out moral guidance. Not sure I need their virtue seeking VP of Marketing and his Ad Agency telling me to do what my Dad taught me 30 years ago. Most normal men already hold ourselves to high standards and we dont need Razor salesmen telling us we need to do a better job of being men. As with all these messages, the ones watching are probably the ones that least need the message. Luck I'm a Schick man!

              @Yola: Same as any group of people no matter how you divide them up? So why the implication in the term "toxic masculinity" that it's an inherent trait in masculinity or men and therefore not in femininity or women? Seems unnecessary. If you sent out a message saying cyber bullying is bad and we all need to take action to call it out, it'd be like yeah ok fair enough, it's about the behaviour itself. But if you then said hey Asians, stop cyber bullying, it's a bit like…ummm…why the hell was Asianness brought into this?

      Haha it appears as though a pretty lady is walking past, then he presumably goes after her to get her details or something which is "not cool" in his friends eyes.

      Levels of whiteknighting in this ad are off the charts - Gilette should just stick to razors. I'm sick of businesses and organisations jumping on to the LGBTQIWTFBBQ bandwagon to appear relevant to their customers, when it has nothing to do with their product.

        Why can't a company have a position on a social issue? They pay company taxes, they have company values and professional standards. A company incl its employees and shareholders exist in the real world, not just the manufacturing line for their product. Not sure if you think this specific company shouldn't just because you don't agree with the position they have taken? None of this prevents you from boycotting the company.

                  @DisabledUser45231: What policies are they? Policy of using child labour?

                  According to a 2016 report by Amnesty International, palm oil provider Wilmar International, the world's biggest palm oil grower in 2016 and supplier of raw materials to Procter & Gamble, profited from 8 to 14-year-old child labor and forced labor. Some workers were extorted, threatened, or not paid for work. Some workers also suffered severe injuries from toxic banned chemicals.[64]

              @DisabledUser45231: You're right wingman, it's difficult to cover all bases. Please rate the following in order you believe they need to be addressed by Gillette:

              a. Playfight at BBQ
              b. Rubbernecking a perceived attractive female
              c. Child exploitation
              d. Rapid deforestation
              e. Harvey Weinstein's casting couch
              f. Workplace chemical injuries
              g. Extortion of the developing world's most vulnerable

              Oh the morality…

                @trucktech: Are you also boycotting KFC, Coca Cola and pretty much every large brand on ozbargain because they all have skeletons in the closet. I doubt it.

                I don’t like Gilette and don’t use their products but if they have something positive and useful to say about women’s unfair treatment then they can say it. That does not mean they can stop addressing those other issues or should. It’s better than staying silent on this issue.

                The negative reaction to it as far as I can see from this site is mainly limited to the actual issue in the ad, being reminded to be respectful to women - not to any of those other issues you list. People can’t handle being told that what they are unconsciously and consciously doing is harmful to women.

                  @DisabledUser45231: As a matter of fact, I am avoiding brands with questionable ethics.

                  The reality of the matter is, neither yourself nor P&G can generalise on collective moral standards of a gender. Everyone is an individual, and to be collectively lectured or chided with prejudice is as insulting as typecasting any racial group.

                  We do know, however that P&G are themselves exploiters and abusers, and we also know you didn't answer the question.

        • +7 votes

          What exactly is their position? That - fast forward from the 80's to 2019 - men (their core clientele) are now devoid of values and need some sort of infomercial on Orwell's "telescreen" to remind them?

          What happened to the days when a company simply delivered products or services, and performance was judged on those merits?

          If brands want to blow the budget on this crap, don't complain when consumers buy a good size, good quality pack of Prince razors for $2 at Aldi - a company that knows consumers just want good value products - not ideals - in their shopping trolley.

          FYI, Gillette parent company P&G has been known for using child labour and unsustainable materials via third parties but those things don't make a good advertisement.

          • +4 votes

            @trucktech: I think you misunderstood the message in the ad. A company can have an impact far greater than one product they sell to you. Social issues can also affect the people in that company both outside it and in the workplace.
            As I said above no one is forcing you to buy the product.
            As I said above just because a company fails on one metric doesn't mean it needs to consistently fall on all metrics.

            • +9 votes

              @DisabledUser45231: It's an advertisement/infomercial. It is not an internal reference reinforcing the company ethos, it is directed toward the viewing public.

              It insults the intelligence of the viewer, and assumes that they need reminding of how to act.

              Along with most people, I don't have a problem with the message, but the delivery has left a lot to be desired - as witnessed by the response.

              Yes we know about freedom of choice to purchase other products… and glad you agree exploitation of resources and children in developing countries falls somewhere on the spectrum of importance, hopefully somewhere between kids play fighting at a BBQ and a 20-something rubbernecking when a woman walks by.

                @trucktech: Yes maybe you don’t need reminding but a whole lot of people do (as the reaction itself shows) and when large organisations take a stand it has an impact.

          They pay company taxes, they have company values and professional standards.

          How is that relevant? lol

          If it was an ad aimed at everyone to be kind and respectful to one another, I doubt there'd be an issue.

          Imagine if was targeting white women or black women, you still think it wouldn't reach the news?

            @ozhunter: It’s relevant because they have more of a right to express their view on political and social issues of public importance compared to an entity that doesn’t pay taxes.

            Maybe it comes as a shock to you but the issue affects all men and all men need reminding about respecting woman. Perhaps you should reflect on the negative reaction to the ad to see just how many men don’t get it and don’t want to change.
            An ad reminding all people to be kind to everyone? Really? You think that’s going to be effective on this very specific issue? Come on.

              Disagree. As long as your following the law legally regarding your taxes, then you have the same right.

              An ad reminding all people to be kind to everyone? Really? You think that’s going to be effective on this very specific issue?

              Why not? Is it because people don't need to be told by a big multinational corporation on how to behave?

              As expected, I see you deliberately didn't answer the last question on my comment. It's like you actually agree that's it's dumb to target specific groups in this way(unless it's men of course) Sounds like the typical modern day feminist.

    A downvote for Gillettes advertisement.
    To say, to insinuate that men are the sexist, are the perpetrators of sexual abuse is a fabrication, it is humans that are the perpetrators of sexism, sexual abuse and discrimination.
    Whether it's the colour of someone's skin, gay or straight, rich or poor, blue or red, black or white, man or woman abuse comes from everywhere, from all corners of the globe and to only look at one group is discrimination and sexism in itself.

          I think there's truth to the "there's no bad publicity" thing, but only up to a point. Sure, everyone is talking about Gillette now which sounds good for them, but a large portion of their customers are now saying they will boycott their products, which definitely can't be a good thing for them.
