Gillette #MeToo ad proves that etiquette beats political correctness

Martina MarkotaRebel Contributor

I wasn’t going to say anything about the recent Gillette advertisement; I felt like everything had been said already. But then I realized the whole ad was based on a common left-wing claim that men don’t know how to handle themselves around women.

It got me thinking about how political correctness forces you to lie, forces you to make huge generalizations about people and act with a political agenda in mind.

It’s a system that goes too far, and the obvious solution is replacing political correctness with a basic understanding of proper etiquette.

Gillette could have addressed respect for others in a better way than just pandering to the left and feminism.

It has all been said so many times , but , WHAT can we do about all these nasty Lefty people who tell dreadful lies a;; of the time and actually believe that they are good people . How did we get all of these Marxist professors in our universities ( and far worse in Canada ) and we even have many of our schools infected with extreme Left wing ideology or at the very least , insane political correctness which propagates like the doubling up of rice grains on a chessboard . Does the Canadian public know about Jordan Peterson’s fight with the dangerous Marxists who tried to take Lindsay Shepherd apart or has his character been assassinated by the Left who now see him as an implacable enemy because he tells very uncomfortable truths that they cannot tolerate ? I like many am becoming very annoyed at our inability to make any headway against these people . So much of the media and so much money , even taxpayers money now , set against telling the truth . At one time , until I’d learned a little , I was sceptical about Trumps claims of a corrupt mainstream media but now I pay closer attention and find him to be right . I’ve always tried to read between the lines but now I have more time to analyse . From the way that you at the Rebel have described things it appears to me that Notley is actually behaving in a criminal way with what she is trying to do .

Lynda, I’m not alienating, nor insulting the millions of Women in the world with common sense… Just the Male/White hating ones… And, they do represent the majority of Women in the West… Martina is just one (of very few) that speaks up about it… Ron is correct, in that there are few Western Women that can be involved in a relationship, without being influenced by Western Feminist Doctrine…. That, is the difference. Recently, I attended a “get together” with people from my (previous) place of work… A Woman we worked with had the audacity to say to all of us White Men “You Are Privileged”.. She actually said this to us one at a time, pointing her finger at us, while sitting in a restaurant… She is White, by the way… So, I asked her about Affirmative Action… Zero response… She had no idea, but she does have 2 Daughters…. So, there ya go… For her, it was not about Race, but about Gender… Welcome to the Feminist Ideology of the West…That will be just one of the downfalls of Western Civilization.. Islamization is the other… Women from the Balkans are no different, and I’ve known many.. I’m off to retire in Central or South America before the end of this year… Believe me when I say that there is a big difference in the attitudes and outlook on Life in those Countries… Not my doing, but just the way it is…

In other words, it was another anti-Trump attack.

Another night of not getting videos…so I’ll pull a Covington and make a statement.
The Gillette ad was targeting men because men are more conservative/republican than women.
Simple as that.

Robert Sloane, why are you alienating and insulting the millions of women in the world with common sense? Martina is FAR from the only woman left that understands what’s been going on.

Paul G….The nazis got their play book from the Democrats in the USA. You are correct in what you posted.

Robert Sloane—I will confirm what you said, as I have seen men find an equal overseas and have a great life together, either over there or in North America. That is not to say you can’t find great women here, it’s just they don’t last long.

Martina, you just may be the only Woman left that understands what has been going on (for Decades) in Western Society. That being said, for Decades many Men from the West have been leaving Canada, the US, and Europe to find “real” Women in other parts of the World… Not “subordinate” Women (as so many Man-Hating/Ball Busting Feminists) would claim… But instead, just Men that are searching for an Equal Partner… That includes Women from the Balkans… Once many Balkan Women make their way to North America, the attitude towards Men changes very quickly… Hopefully, you can continue to prove otherwise….

I have an issue with etiquette and telling the truth.
I can’t rationalize them. So I sacrifice my filter for my sanity.
Sometimes my lack of filter causes insanity too. So, alas I cannot win.
Can you be fiercely grumpy and have etiquette?
I don’t know!!

You missed the main point. The ad promotes hatred and bigotry towards men & boys. The purpose of the alt-left is to dis-empower and marginalize White men & boys by promoting negative stereotypes of them. All hate groups have done this throughout history. The Nazis produced a movie about a Jewish man who rapes young blond German women. The purpose of that movie was not to reduce rape or teach people to be nice. The purpose was to promote hatred of Jews so that the German people would not object to mistreatment of the Jewish people. Similarly, feminists promote hatred of men, so that increased anti-male discrimination will be tolerated by a brainwashed population.
