Razor Burn.

‘Turns out Gillette doesn’t work well with sensitive skin after all.’

You’ve probably seen the angry posts – odds are, written by the friend of the guy who tried to spike you that one time – about Gillette’s latest The Best Men Can Be ad. 

Men called for a boycott of the brand using the #GilletteBoycott hashtag. And once again, womxn all over the world had to bear the load of the emotional and intellectual labour it apparently takes to educate men on how not to be douchebags and treat women with some modicum of respect.

Basically, Gillette’s ad tackled the now-almost-fucking-dry topic of toxic masculinity. However reactions to the ad prove that still in 2019, this is an issue. Equality is still a ‘controversial’ topic and not a given.

I don’t know what else to say (so I’ll leave it to these Tweets).


Butler, give me strength.

Lepore, give me courage.

Dunham, get me another espresso.

Apparently, we’re still on page one.
