First off, “toxic masculinity” is a made-up term by the far-left to try to brow-beat men into behaving like they want. It has no meaning. On a personal level, the ad is offensive because with two exceptions, all of the offending men are white. Also notice that the “correctors” are often men of color. If this were reversed, the left would be screaming about “racism!”. No men in the ad from countries where women are treated like chattel, often beaten or even subject to “honor killings”. The brand manager of Gillette (I looked him up) is from a culture where women are often treated brutally. Perhaps a look in the mirror would be good for him.
On a cultural level, the ad is even more offensive because it engages in the worst types of stereotyping. Yes, men sometimes behave badly. But so do women. I can’t wait for Gillette’s ad encouraging women to find their better angles. Yeah right. Then Gillette would be condemned for “mansplaining”. This is just another shot in the culture war against men and masculinity. The far-left engages in the fantasy that men and women are the same, and wants a society where feminists and the LGBT crowd rule.
