Pound sand, gillette - I don't shave.

My problem is that I don't give a rats hiney what anyone thinks about toxic masculinity.
A lot of the supporters have never been in a fight and couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper sack. They have man buns, soft hands, weak backs, weak minds, and their speaking skills never advanced much beyond the fifth grade. Some of them couldnt grow a beard if they wanted to.
They think that drawing a picture of a gun or even speaking about one in public is a capital offense.
It's hard for me to take anyone like that serious.

I had a similar epiphany last summer when I retired and stopped shaving completely. Now I simply trim with an electric beard razor when it starts to get too unkempt. Little did I realize I was going to melt any snowflakes. That is just, as they say in Louisiana, lagniappe.

There is a very good thread on real MANLY shaving on this very forum.
I only ever used that non-manly brand because they sent me a free razor. I then got caught up wasting tons of money on overpriced, crap mach 3s. Like a crack dealer: first one is free man!
Buy a real safety razor. I like Merkur and feather blades. I can buy a years worth of razors for the cost one one replacement pack of the other ones they keep locked behind the counter. I replace my blades twice a week and get a much better shave.

I buy Wal-Mart disposable razors, have electric razor (not Gillette); can't boycott what I ain't buying anyway.
Levis & Dicks made their gun position known, two more that I wasn't patronizing anyway.
I wish more companies would speak up about what they stand for, maybe have a FAQ on their webpage at least.
If they are anti-gun and wish we were disarmed like Europe, I'd like to know that.
If they support disrespecting our flag / national anthem I'd like to know that.
Put those positions out there for everyone to see and for those that so desire possibly impact if they continue to buy the product.
For some businesses (products) there might not be a realistic alternative, but for others there could be.
If all options suck, support least of the evils.
I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
"Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.

The Gillette piece being discussed.
I've committed no racist infractions and I've never misbehaved toward women. It isn't effective to punish me, either for previous generations' sins or for the present for I will not do penance. I won't accept punishment or pay retribution for what amounts to nothing more than contrived outrage, social engineering, and political extortion and I won't support Gillette and Proctor & Gamble or their propagandizing.
One woman's view.

This whole MeToo and toxic masculinity thing has pushed me far enough, kinda like all the kneeling by the NFL guys and I watched 0 NFL games this season. I'll grow a stubble face and keep it that way for a while, there's no shortage of MeToo folks in Boulder for me to smile at.

The video was getting torn to shreds on their Youtube page and rightfully so. Once they've alienated away the men that actually buy their products all they'll have left are soyboys that can't grow facial hair and women with an abundance of armpit hair. You know, the people that praise them for doing this but don't actually buy their products.
In the comments on their Youtube video several people were kind enough to post a list of Proctor And Gamble owned brands to boycott. I encourage everyone to not support Proctor And Gamble because they're being stupid and also because you can get better stuff for less. As Dollar Shave Club tweeted after this, "Welcome to the club." May Dollar Shave Club and other non-P&G alternatives prosper.

I haven't bought a pair of levis since they decided to spout political horsedung. I sent them a phot of my rump, wearing levis, with an m&p in a holster attached to it, right next to the tag. told them that I wasn't a millennial, and, millennials don't wear levis. to grab a crowbar, pry their heads out of their posteriors, and have a steaming mug of "shut the **** up", while they were still in business.
oddly, I got no reply.
i'm sure lee and wrangler thank them for the middle aged gun toting business.

Even the men in the "Me Too" Gillette commercial are uttering "Those chicks are hot!"

Sarcasm aside, it is disheartening to see so many companies taking up the mantle of the cause du jour. I view it as a sign of weakness, not strength; they are merely followers.

I have no idea which demographic they're targeting with this little campaign. Beards are extremely popular with the younger snowflakes in my area, and masculinity is something most of them would never be accused of regardless of their facial hair (or lack thereof). Older men aren't swayed by this type of stuff, they're gonna do what they're gonna do regardless of what some popular social movement is telling them they should be guilt-ridden over.
Oh, and one other consideration... Abraham Lincoln had a beard. Ted Bundy was clean shaven.

Or is it desperation?
