    Exclamation Did Gillette Just Commit Hara-Kiri????????

    Quote: One of the world's most successful brands committed ideological hara-kiri this week. Recognized around the world as a symbol of manly civility for more than a century, Gillette will now be remembered as the company that did itself in by sacrificing a massive consumer base at the altar of progressivism.

    More Quote:
    To which I say: R.I.P.-C. (Rest In Political Correctness).

    In case you hadn't seen or heard, parent company Procter & Gamble launched a Gillette ad campaign blanket-demonizing men as ogres and bullies. Guilt-ridden actors gaze ruefully at their reflections in the mirror — not because they've neglected their hygiene, but simply because they're men. Various scenarios of boys being boors and males being monsters flash across the screen before woke interlocutors show how “real” men behave in nonaggressive, conciliatory and apologetic ways.
    At home and at work, in the boardroom, on the playground, and even while barbecuing in the backyard, Gillette sees nothing but testosterone-driven trouble. Message: Y chromosomes are toxic. The “best a man can get” can no longer be attained without first renouncing oppressive manliness.

    Wow! Another company makes the mistake of putting its foot into the political waters on the wrong side. Management must have been pussified.

    Well, I have been using Gillette Multi-blade Razors for years. I also have about 2 years worth of Gillette blade Cartridges left. I am sure not going to throw them away, but I won't be buying any more Gillette products in the future. No more Gillette Shaving Gel, either.

    If you ask for my opinion, that is what you will get.
    Do Not be mad, when it is not what you want to hear.

    If you do not have my number, you are not
    close enough to me for me to care if you
    have a problem with me.

    Cool

    Guess its time to look for another source of shave gear. Maybe Harry's or dollar shave club.

    Price on Gillette products has been getting pretty steep.
