Gillette ad

Proctor & Gamble was forced to delete negative downvotes under a Gillete razor television commercial on Youtube.com Monday, after the ad received over 400,000 downvotes and nearly 90,000 angry comments from men on the video streaming platform. The ad has racked up over 3.4 million views since it was published on Sunday, Jan. 13.

Gillette challenges the longstanding and oft used phrase "boys will be boys" that excuses rowdy behavior or rough play that are instinctive to the male species.

P&G urges men to change their masculine behavior by asking "Is this the best a man can get? Is it?"

The narrator continues: "We can't hide from [toxic masculinity]. It has been going on far too long. We can't laugh it off, making the same old excuses."

Men everywhere are calling for a boycott of Gillette over what they see as an attack on their manhood and their race.

In the commercial, 43 men and boys are shown exhibiting "undesirable" masculine behavior with women and girls. Among the 43 males, 42 are white and only 1 is Black.

7 males are seen exhibiting "desirable” behavior, such as breaking up fights and interrupting men who lust after women. Of the 7 desirables, four are Black males and only 2 are white.

The ad angered mostly white males who see the commercial as racist and antagonistic. One YouTube user writes: "War on men continues. I'll be taking my toxic male money elsewhere.?"

The Gillette ad wages war on "toxic masculinity” - a buzzphrase coined by the #MeToo movement and social media feminists that refers to a man's natural instincts to be savages.

The Psychiatric community has not adopted the term as an official mental health diagnosis since the only treatment is chemical castration with female hormones or blocking Testosterone and male androgens that causes men to exhibit socially unacceptable behaviors.

Many men see the ad as unfair since they are already forced to suppress their natural predatory instincts in a civilized society. This forced suppression is unnatural and often results in disastrous consequences for women and children who become the main victims of violence.

In one Instagram.com video that went viral last week, a group of males are seen surrounding and sexually harassing women in a gas station. One women avoided disaster by smiling and laughing off the attack. Even so, her amiable behavior didn't prevent the thugs from referring to her as a "bitch."

CAUTION: the video is difficult to watch due to the savagery exhibited by the males and the foul language used.

    I love this commercial. It has a positive message. Too many adult men act like boys. They haven’t been taught any better at home. We as women got used to being cat called and grabbed walking down the street.

  • Dowoop

    So they are mad because its not a majority of black men portrayed in a negative light but Sandra finds a video to potray this stereotype anyway.

  • Yardgirl

    The ad angered mostly white males who see the commercial as racist and antagonistic.

    Truth hurts and saltine men are always butt hurt when faced with the truth!! I think the ad is needed!!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I like this commercial!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Well anyone who supports R Kelly supports toxic masculinity.

    But overall toxic masculinity is the root cause of most of the ills in the black community.

    The idea that having children with multiple women makes a male a man is a left over idea from slavery when so-called robust black men were forced to basically breed with multiple women as if they were animals.

    But it seems as if my people love embracing the wrong stereotypes.

  • We Can Do This

    So so right!

    Breeding just because they can...

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I'm sorry...i don't see what one video has to do with the other. The Commercial is dead-on with the social climate of today....i'm sorry (not sorry) another major company is willing to take a position on it. The 2nd video is not and should not be considered an ACT of natural or instinctive behavior...that is being suppressed. The 2nd video is equivalent to circling predators...preparing to pounce on their prey. It's savage in fact.

  • Dowoop

    No relation whatsoever, it's to continue the stereotypical narrative of black men.

  • Ryan

    Incels have too much damn time on their hands.

  • Renee26

    I feel sorry for that girl... See the way I'm set up it may have gotten really ugly cause I would've pulled my piece of if a bunch of niggas surrounded me like that.

  • Topic Influencer

    Behavior in that IG video is disgusting and criminal (harrassment)

    All I got

  • Phillybruh

    This was a well done commercial.

  • Renee26

    Written like a true man hater.... Men are natural savages... OK

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile....

    People want big companies to address the wrongs in society instead of turning a blind eye to them but when they do, folks get mad??.

    Indecisive Americans????

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Not sure why it would be linked to the Gillette story. the video of the black boys (because i refuse to use the words black men) is predatory. They lack self control and good judgment in that video and that should not be associated with NATURAL INSTINCTIVE BEHAVIOR

  • Soda

    If I was mobbed by a bunch of fools calling me disgusting names while trying to "get at" me at a gas station, I'd get back in my car and call AAA and tell them my car is out of gas. I'm parked by the pumps.

  • iWasteTime

    I like this. It isn't an attack, it is promoting accountability!
    A lot of men just kept their mouth shut but felt uncomfortable as other men committed assault or never checked language in a group setting. A LOT of men stood by as R. Kelly did what he did too.
    Let them feel like it is alright to go against what is "ingrained" and speak up when uncomfortable or when witnessing bad behavior.

  • HotInCleveland

    And then call the police

  • LeeSeeCee

    A hit dog will holler, ok? This commercial was simply stating that men need to evolve and be better for the generations coming up behind them. We all need to evolve or die. Past behaviours can be improved upon. Status quo is getting us nowhere but chasing our tails. All you have to do is look at Washington and see the white, entitled, male pathos is effect. Start with the President and work your way down.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    In reference to that video of the girl getting bombarded by heathens smoking weed at the gas station, she shouldve gone to another gas station and learned to get gas during the day only???

  • HotInCleveland

    ?PREACH

  • T Willis

    So toxic masculinity is the root of many problems in the black community, but black women’s refusal to take accountability for the illegitimacy rate in our communities is not?! Omg. I can feel my blood pressure skyrocketing.

    And supporting R. Kelly is in line with supporting toxic masculinity?

    Omg smdh lmao.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That IG video was unformfortable to watch. And it's funny how dudes like this, when they have daughters one day, will be the first one to want to punch a nigro in the mouth for "disrespecting" their daughter/sister/cousin like that.

  • hottlanta

    Wish u could have shown the white girls gone wild video alongside that video with then lifting their blouses bikini top showing their breasts booze n toxic masculinity allllll over the place

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    White men are gradually losing their power and privilege in this society, so a lot of them are just looking for stuff to get mad at. Pay them no mind.

  • Renee26

    They apparently thought it would be funny to film themselves treating women like that. Look how they kept their hands visible at all times... It was a planned attack

  • Renee26

    I need to see receipts of this so called uproar about this commercial cause it looked like a positive message to me

  • Panther Charleston

    The video with the young woman is horriffic. The way they kept surrounding her was...there are no words. One of the guys lit his smoke right near her hair. No respect for boundaries or her safety. Oh God!

  • Mielle Downey

    None of you will even give the nice guy the time of day but you will sit here and contradict your self preaching SJW toxic masculinity. I need an alpha man in my life not a beta male girlfriend who is in touch with his feelings. Cat calls are not harmful and when men stop lusting over beautiful women then Houston we have a problem because they are probably lusting over my male friend. The whole diet woke feminist movement is trying to oppress men. RKelly is not an alpha male he is a beta predator and if you women continue to try and suppress you will be dealing with way more deviance than RKelly. so let a man be a damn man and practice being a lady so that you can attractsa real man instead of a busta or a douche bag.

  • T Willis

    I’m not watching either video.

    I will say I’m disgusted by this mantra that yt feminist have coined: toxic masculinity

    There is nothing toxic about masculinity. The only entity that would view masculinity as toxic are feminist who view men as their oppressors.

    I’m especially surprised to see black women follow this line of thinking. We are the last demographic that needs to view male-hood/masculinity as toxic. As it is we already have too many women raising boys into manhood, which has produced more “toxic” effects that any innate or socialized behavior in boys/males. Black communities, especially, need more masculinity because we have too many emotional boys that think and act like a “weaker sex”, especially when placed in a competitive environment amongst other races of males in their age groups. We are trailing behind emotionally, socially, psychologically, & economically.

    Masculinity is *our* solution - not our detriment.

    Don’t let these yt woman mantras create a greater separation between us and our male counterparts. We lost a lot of men - who provided guidance & wisdom - during the last wave of feminism.

    We have to be smarter than their agenda and start seeing the psychological warfare for what it is.

  • Mielle Downey

    Thanks for common sense up in here.

  • Ni Ni

    I'm just sick of everybody. Seems like that girl on the video was kee kee'n to me. Why should i be outraged when she isn't.

  • Mielle Downey

    They will hit you with that "You support RKelly?" but Hugh Hefner estate is still making money. Play boy bunny ears are still a thing and why?

  • CaramelDrop

    Idk.... she was too “friendly”. I have “resting b!tch face” naturally so I couldn’t understand why she couldn’t have walked with the “dont FUCCC with me look” and the mace on her key chain visable.
    I’m not saying she asked for the attention but (most) males know whoNOT TO bother. I hate to assume but they treated her like a “known heaux” they were trying to take FROM a pimp.

  • Renee26

    Looks like a nervous laugh to me. I have one and it's gotten me beat up before

  • Phillybruh

    And the excuse you just gave for the black males is why they continue on the path of destruction they are on.

  • Calikush

    ?????????

  • Yardgirl

    Exactly!!

  • Yardgirl

    I need to see them too!!

  • Renee26

    Toxic behavior is just that and can be given by either sex male or female. Abuse is toxic in any form and should not be accepted

  • Whirl

    People don’t like looking themselves in the mirror. Self awareness can be a bitch. Some folks would rather remain blind towards their mysogynistic behavior. Looking down deeply into oneself can be ugly. One might find out a lot about themselves that is undesirable. Takes wit and bravery to do self reflection and introspection. It’s easy to lie to others but once one gets to the point of lying to oneself than one has to ask- what kind of piece of shit am I really if I can’t even face myself.

  • Phillybruh

    In black males the masculinity is not just toxic it's hyper, they have been told and taught and punished into being a certain way very early.

  • Renee26

    I was just about to say this. The girl went to the gas station as a patron. She didn't invite that ish just cause she smiled. I smile at bums every day and keep it moving.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    i bet the ONLY ones upset are PREDATORS.

  • Ni Ni

    Ok, I'll watch it again later.

  • Whirl

    The real unspoken question is- when are we as a society going to acknowledge that our board rooms and positions of power are occupied by white males by and large. That’s why I don’t go caping for organizations like CNN cause once the Trump cabal is over they will go right back to their regular position of white men almost exclusively going into executive positions. When will black women get their seat at the table. When there is an opening at the whitehouse there’s no need to follow it. We already know that 9 times out of 10 it will be filled by a white male. It’s lije an unspoken/ unacknowledges rule. And re all know unacknowledged rules are the most dangerous.

  • Mielle Downey

    This is Typical of the Gay agenda and you people can fall into the trap all you want but my eye are wide open. The only thing toxic is the gay man wish to have every male castrated literally.

  • SpiceGirl

    And then there was.................this!

  • Mielle Downey

    The venomous toxic feminist are helping with the gay agenda because they are lost souls.

  • Topic Influencer

    The term was coined by a man. Not a feminist. Dr. Shepherd Bliss. It was part of a men's movement, not one of a female.

    I swear women get blamed for everything.

  • Renee26

    Looking on that same Instagram page I came across this video clip. This guy flashed a photo of Cardi wearing Tammy's daughters custom wig when he was talking about work he's done. Tammy honey you may need to contact your daughter about this false advertising

    It's a beautiful ad.

  • HotInCleveland

    Agreed! I have a small cousin that is into books and STEM his dad and siblings call him a dweeb while they praise the athletes

  • Lucy

    War on Masculinity? Seems like the commercial is telling men and boys to respect women and each other.

  • HotInCleveland

    Both can be true. Black women do need to take responsibility for their behavior, poor decisions, and bad habits that have led to the degradation of the Black community as well as Black men that engage in toxic masculinity. There is enough blame to go around so let’s point out the issues and fix it!

  • sunni_daze

    I am so annoyed with society. Men are men and a man can be masculine. They've already feminized men's clothing to be smaller and tighter than a woman's, got men wearing purses and dyed hair. Why is society dead set on turning men into women. Its almost as if its an attack on them.

  • Chapter29Chick

    I have one as well and it can develop in the mist of male threat and seemingly confuses them

  • We Can Do This

    My sentiments exactly!

    Why go to a store or area alone with this many males hanging around at night?

    Why are there dudes hanging around a place of business scaring away potential customers?

  • HotInCleveland

    Define “masculine”

  • CPA

    That video was disgusting

  • Chapter29Chick

    "Let a man be a damn man" so r u saying overlook all of the destruction that men cause even 2 their own wives and children. They dgaf about us, wat benefit would we have to gaf about them..... waiting...

  • Blue

    I think Gillette is doing too much. Focus on selling the razors and donate some money to organizations that do a better job of getting the message of respect out.

  • CPA

    Too friendly?
    Wrong

  • Chapter29Chick

    Exactly! This is why the bs will continue if we dont address this. But i do feel it needs 2 be addressed in a mature way, but the world we live in will handle this like animals.

  • Toni Toni Toni

    That IG video was very disturbing. If that wouldn't have been in a public place, those low life nothings probably would've raped her. They act like they hadn't seen a woman before. I don't blame the other girl for running back to her car. EFF THAT!!! ALL THOSE BAMMAS need THEIR ARSES WHOOPED!! REAL LIVE!

  • Chapter29Chick

    They r so afraid of one another that they will probably never do this and continue to stand by like robots.

  • tintin

    she wasn't being friendly she was scared, imagine she copped a attitude, a bullet could have gone to her head. Honestly i would have skipped that gas station. If i see a whole bunch of black dudes...i take myself away from the situation cause I hate the harassment too. Sometimes I even do that for 1 dude. You know the ones that are gonna try and talk to you. I just hate being bothered.

    i went to the grocery store around lunch break, mind you I'm near 40 and these 14 to 16 year old boys were hollering...i felt so uncomfortable. Black men boys don't care, they will call after whatever has a vagina.

  • Chapter29Chick

    The last couple lines is hilarious as hell. "Im parked at the pumps." ???

  • Wile E. Coli

    Gillette has decided they no longer want to sell razors to men apparently.

  • HotInCleveland

    Well now the big thing with corporations is a triple bottom line: profits, social responsibility, and global sustainability. More corporations are moving towards this model if they haves already they are behind. It’s no longer enough for them to give donations-they must declare publicly who they align with bc millennials and generation z are the consumers they’ll target as the baby boomers die off.

  • Chapter29Chick

    Yea im tired of this tail chasing shat, either do it or get off the pot dammit.

  • iWasteTime

    Based on these comments about "Alpha Men" and "Men being Men or Masculine" explains a lot.
    You folk are attributing toxic traits to being a real man and in reality it is the opposite.
    A REAL man will speak up, when he knows something is wrong, even if it goes against the grain. A real man will protect a woman because a real ALPHA protects.

  • HotInCleveland

    You’re absolutely right

    You're absolutely right. The message of the commercial seemed cluttered to me though. But I get it.

  • ? ?ee?? Too Hot ? ?
  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    No offense to you whatsoever Sandra, cause I absolutely love and adore you. But your write up about that Instagram video is incorrect. Those are pimps. They are trying to get a girl to 'choose'. This is commonly known as 'choosin' where a hoe (aka prostitute) chooses a dude to pimp her. They are surrounding her spitting game trying to get her to choose one of them. This was not about sex nor were they doing this to 'holla' in any way whatsoever. I'm not excusing this behavior AT ALL. It is wrong to ME but that is their lifestyle. That's how they live. The role of a pimp in this scenario is to apply a lot of pressure to the hoe, speak very quickly to confuse her, and some even resort to violence to show her she needs 'protection' from johns or other pimps like him. Pimps will also have their hoes do this to other women. They will literally chase them down and follow them spitting game for miles trying to get the girl to join them or they get beat by their pimp for not trying. Real pimping is not like you see on movies or tv. It's gritty and serious. They take this to an entirely different level most people don't know about. And pimps look like regular guys. Most of them are sexy af, And the old ones are usually the flashy ones that the industry loosely bases pimp characters on in movies and tv. (Again, emphasis on the phrase 'loosely' based).

    Source of expertise: Me. The ex-girlfriend of an actual pimp and former street dweller. Disclaimer: I was never a prostitute, but I was well aware of what my ex did to make money and encouraged him when he did it because I would rather him pimp someone else than pimp me. That was years ago, but this has been going on for ages and will continue to. The old pimps educate the young ones, and the old hoes train the young ones. And that's just how it is in certain streets.

  • MrsSpice1

    That was dope of Gillette to use their platform to bring awareness!!! ????????!!! Thank you!!! MANY MORE organizations celebrities etc with high platforms need to take notes! Yez it may come off as a bit much but its 2019 its time for a change!! DRASTICALLY!!! We need more ppl idc who you are or what your selling as long as you can attach something positive and beneficial to all those that are watching and observing!!

    Oh u r so on point with this comment, 2 up votes. Slavery is still deeply rooted in how black men view themselves and treat women. The white devil planned this to the very last part. Us destroying ourselves after years of oppression. Its so unfair, but thats where the lazy blacks come into play as well bec a majority will not "DO THE WORK" it takes to repair our community to a morally acceptable status. We r stuck n shat and no one will pull us out, but us if we r willing to "DO THE WORK".

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Oh geeze here we go.

    They aren't mutually exclusive, but it's funny all over youtube there are these black men who consider themselves black nationalists but all they do is blame 'feminists' and gay people for the condition of the black community, but they never hold heterosexual black men responsible who they claim are supposed to be the leaders of the black community.

    The most important quality for a leader to possess is self-discipline but they never talk about black men being monogamous in relations all they talk about is being the HEAD of the household and the boss blah, blah, blah!!
    Well with power comes responsibility and these dudes are no different from white males who rule this country and the world.

  • DroneRivers

    Chile, living in nyc that is sadly like par for the course. They don't usually get as aggressive as in that video, but I've been followed and cussed out for several city blocks because I chose to ignore a guy. It makes you wonder how some people are raised.
    And it's a shame we even have to say "What if that were your mom, sister, daughter, etc?" They need to treat us with respect because it's right and that's what humans do!

  • DroneRivers

    So the White men are outnumbered in the commercial and NOW representation matters? Funny, I remember hearing that somewhere before...

  • DroneRivers

    Wow. Those are some broken down looking pimps. And since none of them got chose, they don't have much game. Lol

  • Renee26

    Did the original caption say they were pimpin and tryna get chose? She didn't look to be interested at all

  • Chapter29Chick

    The truth is that "toxic masculinity" does cause problems within the black community because the white man has emasculated the black man for so many years down 2 sexing his wife and daughters in his face and he couldnt do anything but watch or cry. In this day in age it seems that women (although we make terrible decisions in the men we choose) are pawns to create a masculine ego by sleeping with as many women they can possibly get their hands on. But then again many men do this to feel manly, but many black men are taking it to another level to emphasize "I AM MAN SEE ME CONQUER AND SEED THESE VAGINAS". Women r the gatekeepers to sex in a moral environment, but wat about the tricks men play like they take it right out of satans handbook in order to collect panties????

  • Renee26

    Amen

    Who are white men losing their powers too?

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    lmao! Well if some of them wouldn't have let her through, she would have had no choice NOT to choose tbh. She would NOT have been going anywhere until she chose one of them. They'd either get her number or ask to ride with her. If they ride with her, she wouldn't be seeing home any time soon. She's his at that point - as well as her car, and there's no calling the cops or running unless she wants to get badly beaten or killed. If she gave him her number and never answers, she could never go anywhere near there or again because he would beat her up on sight and kidnap her. If she does answer and allows him to come over to 'chill', he's never leaving. And neither is she. (which is what my ex did to me). Regardless of however he finally gets her, at some point she would be taken to live with him and the other hoes and then pimped out for money - either willingly or by force. White folks call that sex trafficking but to them it's just pimping. Again, I never had to do the sex part but I did have to recruit other hoes and help him make the same amount of money or more in other ways or I would have had to.

    Well, watch the video again. She only got away because another girl was coming up and some of the dudes ran after her and broke the circle. That other girl knew what was up, and you can see her running back to her car when the pimps started chasing her. That's why the dude recording was so surprised "she got through" cause she normally wouldn't have been going nowhere when they do that.

    and she doesn't have to be interested. the goal is to make her give in and choose period. this happened in oakland, btw. if you go to certain areas and fit a certain profile this is gonna happen no matter who you are. in some areas pimps will just gang up waiting for girls to take. like this one. and if you go there, they will insist you came to choose and knew what you were doing even if you really didn't. If you listen carefully to what they're saying, you'll here one dude saying over and over, "bitch you came here for me. you came here for me." and another one says "you walked into a circle full of pimps wtf" like she should have known exactly what to expect doing that, and that's how they think.

    Thank you for all this information, because I was really confused, but your explanation makes it all make sense.

    Question though: Do they just walk up to any woman and do this? Because nothing about that woman screams that she’s tricking. Is the pimp’s assumption that any woman can be his prostitute?

    This is par for the course for this poster, who was kicking the same type of bs re: R. Kelly. Anytime mistreatment of Black women or girls by Black men/boys is brought to light, it's due to some white agenda to bring Black men down. As if we have no agency and no desire to protect our own. It's TRASH "logic."

    Well, a lot of things happened at once that made me finally get out. The violence started getting worse. I was being raped by him and beat pretty much every day. Sexual torture stuff when I did something wrong. I had a baby. He started taking him away from me and forcing me out in the streets more. Some times I couldn't come back without a certain amount of money even if that meant only seeing my baby for an hour or so every other day. Then he'd just take all the money and sometimes not even want to give me any to feed the baby. And when my baby started talking, he told me that he was punching him. I loved my son. More than anything. So that was it for me. I waited until he was in the shower, grabbed the keys and my baby and ran for my life. Drove from California to Indiana and never looked back. It was the worst time of my life, and I still deal with the brokenness of it years later. All I can thank him for is teaching me the game, cause now I can spot a pimp or real gangster from 20 miles away and I would never be tricked into that lifestyle ever again. Some women are not so lucky. I at least escaped with my life, and no criminal record.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I know hispanic and black men like this. They dont have anything to say until someone’s speaking up for women. Then all of the sudden they wanna write theses on how men need to be left to their mysoginy. Fck him. I am so glad i stopped marching and defending men.

    Yeah, except for part where you have folks out here harassing, name calling, assaulting, raping, and killing women who don't respond to those so-called "harmless" catcalls. Elliott Rodger was a self-proclaimed "nice guy" who women wouldn't give the time of day. Then he shot and killed a bunch of people since he wasn't getting the female attention he was "entitled" to because he was such a "nice guy." FOH

    As to being a "lady", look up the problems they have with street harassment and gang assaults in places like Egypt where women are typically far more covered than the average American.

    Simple.. ingrained bad habits are hard fought to get rid of especially when it is tied to a person sexual preference... Society has been taught for years that to be a man you should be like this and femininity looks like this.. What will really cook your noodle is just as early as 1920 that line of demarcation wss blurred. Boys wore pink and dresses in pictures up until toddler age and it wasn't until 1940 when pink officially was the "girl' color because it was easier for manufacturing.. Did we forget those wigs the men wore back in the day? Oh..there weren't any girl or boy isles for toys either.. So what happened?

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    White women MAY be diluting the power of the white man. That's why white men have always wanted to keep them barefoot and pregnant.

    After the white woman the BLACK MAN is another concern for white men because as the Black man's status increases, the WHITE MAN finds himself competing against the Black man for his most cherished possession -- the white woman.

    Lastly, the assumption is that the Black woman who has carried the banner for the Black race is powerless. But, she has traditionally been the backbone of the Black race. Because she is underestimated she is the MOST powerful of all. Remember women and GIRLS RULE THE WORLD.

    No one is comparing arab and Muslim societies where women are considered second class citizens. that like comparing apples to oranges. You need to remove your head out of the SJW behind and into the real world. If you are one of those sic heffers who want to literally castrate men for being men find a safe space and get a life. No need to try and insult my intelligence because right now you look like and wet rag. Is the fact that I want a strong man in my life who has not been feminized by his mother a problem? well get over it because it is not your problem. I have a menstrual cycle and have no time to deal with a man on his. The arab rape culture is not a part of my society and from what I see most of the males have been civilized and if you don't feel comfortable with sexual advances then speak because you are not dumb deaf or mute. Just like the girl in the videio if you are tee hee heeing then you are sending the wrong signal you need to grow a back bone and say no. Teach your girls to say no and you will be promoting human communication only animals don't speak.

    What part of women have said no and have been raped/assaulted/ murdered in THIS country don't you get? I mean, maybe you should pull your "pick me" head from under a man's sack.

You butchies seem to think that if you erase real men then you will some how magically gain their masculinity and women will be attracted to you.

    That video with the woman was hard to watch all those men surrounding her. I had no sound as I'm at work. But I would of been scared If I was her. That's straight harassment. Men can be some damn dogs. I had a similar when I stopped in the hood for gas. I was dresses real nice in a dress getting ready to go to a social gathering. And I had so many men approaching me, asking for my number, whistling at me and making nasty remarks.

    When I was younger I use to hate to dress up and go places because even back than the younger guys were so rude and when I wouldn't pyay them any attention I was called a b***h or was told f**k you with your stuck up a**. Sorry but I'm old fashioned.

    And this damn society we live in boycotting everything has become so sensitive and boring. Give me the old days back. You know when famous celebrities and comedians could joke and make fun of genders and races. Soon there will be no entertainment. The damn LGTQZLMNOP done took over and that's bad enough. Their the only group that can get folks fired from work, kicked of shows and make folks lose their business. The agenda is being pushed too far for my liking.

What did our Egyptian Kings wear? They were bald underneath but wore hair they also wore robes pants are a European construct. Take a look at this Egyptian picture.. hmmm no pants.. All I am saying is society has placed this hard line of what is considered being a man and what is not. this is Egypt BTW.. us back in the day...

    Ladies, I have another question.

    Have yall ever walked past a man, gave him a friendly smile, nod a hello and then he in turn thinks that is his queue to hit on you? WTF?

    Some dudes always say women don't smile or will yell out, "Damn baby, smile, it ain't that bad!" You're basically a btch if you don't smile or a hoe ready to be hit on if you do.

    How the fluck does a smile and a hello mean come ask me for my number OR "can I use your phone to call my phone? I lost mine!" WTF?!

    This is why women seem unapproachable and unfriendly because the MOMENT we flash a smile or show some niceness, SOME men take that as "she feeling a ngga". NO NGGA..WE AIN'T! Just trying to be polite!

  • fRAktal Reality

    Wise and highly intuitive Black women and men know that real power only exists in the abstract--energy and forces.

    In this realization, there is an understanding that we are animated by magnetic (XX) and electrical (XY) force potentials that cause us to become autonomous, living, breathing biological entities.

    More importantly, there is a keen awareness that real intelligence is in MIND/Spirit--that is an abstract link to Pure Carbon Magnetic Wave Energy Frequencies (aka Pure Energy/Dark Energy/Black Energy).

    Nature-minded individuals know that energy is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipowerful, omni-magnificent, omni-undulating and omni-directional.

    Black women who are highly mentally-developed radiate wave energy frequencies that allow them to walk through a crowd of men--like those in the TattleTailz video--and not be harassed, insulted or assaulted. The forces they resonate would automatically repel those men.

    Black men who are highly developed mentally are accountable and wouldn't act like those young brothaz in that video.

    Forces govern everything. That is an eternal reality.

    If anything needs to change, it's the way we direct and channel our mental forces through thinking, behavior and acts to manifest certain outcomes and events.

    Those with corrupt thinking will cause their own demise.

  • dontgetblocked

    Is this a PSA or a commercial. If this is a commercial, whoever made it and approved it to air, should be fired. Gillette's target audience is men, yet they're trying to appease women. Its' extremely difficult to do both when you're selling a product and they failed miserably.
