Perhaps apropos; perhaps not. :) 

When I was a child
I thought as a child
I spoke as a child
I didn't know better

But now I'm a man
I look like a man
I'm old as a man
And I should know better

Got my head in the sky
And my mind knows what it wants
But my body just drags me down
And my world is something you can't see

But it's still very real to me
You can find it in the hole where I keep my soul
There it is - way down inside me
There's a real man
Forget about my body and be a real man

I see with my heart
I hear with my heart
I feel with my heart
Sometimes it works better

And some so-called friends put me down
And they pity me for trying
Bad emotions push me around
But the vision shines on and on

It will shine when we all are gone
And I'd like to add a little sparkle while I'm here
Light it up - way down inside me
There's a real man
Forget about bad feelings and be a real man

Some men's world is only hate and money
Afraid of everything and they laugh at nothing
And they only live to criticize
You can laugh at me now

But the time comes to everybody
When you must decide
When that day finally comes along
You might wish you'd been a little more strong

Then you'll wake up in the morning cryin'
"Oh my God"
There it is - way down inside me
It's a real man

You got to grow up sometime
Be a real man
Suffer them slings and arrows
Be a real man

Now be a real man
Don't sell yourself for nothing
Be a real man
Don't take no crap from no one

Be a real man
Get your trip together
Be a real man

I agree. Miamizsun's feminist bona fides are well established, but he might have crossed a line in suggesting women should have to shave.

Ads use stereotypes. A lot.

Oh noes, someone's offended again. How offended? Read some of the comments of YT video. And bring a bucket (or maybe not).

thanks for the site  


a few random thoughts

the gillette thing seems a wee bit stereotypical

probably feels good to some but maybe offensive to others

wouldn't it have been just as easy to include toxic femininity?

even more telling

what do toxic masculinity and toxic femininity have in common?

probably the toxic behavior part

so if they're going down that road why not just target the toxicity part of all behavior?

and they should probably define toxic

lastly, why wouldn't they just make a human rights commercial?

maybe promote universal ethical behavior?

i'm thinking people would be much more receptive to a strong positive message

peace

Trump: Americans are saying 'merry Christmas' thanks to me

“One nation under God. So important. And we say it. A lot of people, you know, they don't say it. But you know what? They're starting to say it more, just like we’re starting to say 'merry Christmas' when that day comes around,” he said in the White House Rose Garden.

“You notice a big difference between now and two or three years ago?” Trump added. “It was going in the other direction rapidly. Now it’s straight up.”

The president announced at the event that he was singing an executive order creating a new faith-based initiative at the White House, which was attended by leaders from the Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu faiths.

But even if you don’t actually like Wolf’s style or humor, she very clearly demonstrates that there’s nothing about liberal feminism that means you can’t be offensive or boundary-pushing. People who insist that “political correctness” means a stifling of the right to “be offensive” are being imprecise. In fact, they are upset that they can’t make jokes at the expense of the powerless and marginalized, that there’s less tolerance for humor that rests on cruel stereotypes about people of color, women, disabled people, queer people, and fat people. (Though Wolf did make a fat joke about Chris Christie, which is arguably more acceptable since it’s at the expense of a powerful person. I am sure this can be debated.)

It was fun watching people like Maggie Haberman and Mika Brzezinski publicly announce how appalled they were after Wolf told some jokes about their industry, and her routine was obviously the best White House Correspondents’ Dinner since Stephen Colbert’s infamous appearance. It’s a gross event, and it’s only ever good when the attendees get mercilessly roasted. But there is an even more important conclusion to draw from Michelle Wolf’s comedy. It helps us see through the lie about political correctness, this idea that feminists are trying to kill humor. They’re not trying to kill it. They’re trying to turn it against the people who deserve to be its targets: the Trumps and Weinsteins and Cosbys and Moores of the world. And those people aren’t upset because they value edgy humor, but because they want humor that bullies the powerless rather than exposing the grotesque immorality of the powerful. The cult of “civility” is the real “political correctness,” the stifling consensus that prevents us from telling the truth about the people in charge.
