Yes!!!

Kudos to Ilan Srulovicz the CEO of Egard Watch Company for this response to the Gillette ad…

AND he did it with his own money!!!

Of course the left/libs/SJWs will deny, decry, and the blame game will start, but this ad IS the truth… Plain, unvarnished truth. Yes there are bad people out there, no question. But the MAJORITY of men, or at least real men, do not do the whole toxic masculinity thing the left portrays. They would love nothing more than to turn men into nothing more than vessels for semen, only called on when the biological clock has ticked down to the last tick, and desperation kicks in…

Much like what many wanted to do with the military going back to post WW1. Put the military in the deep freeze, and NEVER call them until the situation is dire, and near being lost… Which is what continues to happen… sigh… Cut, cut, cut, obsolete equipment- “Oh God! We’ve got a problem. Here, go fix it!” Reagan, thankfully, took the other tack and built the military up, which is why we won the cold war.

I’m old, I hurt, I’m grumpy, but I can hunt, fish, cook, have rebuilt cars, own and maintain a home, open doors for women and elderly, and help my kids out when they need it. If that’s toxic, I’ll wear that proudly.

Larry Correia did another great fisking, HERE on another metrosexual ‘male’ from the UK about ‘obsolete’ skills…

  1. If I had any reason to own a “luxury” watch, this would be the company I’d buy it from.

  2. “They would love nothing more than to turn men into nothing more than vessels for semen”

    That’s true of the Left in more ways than one.

  3. …O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away ” ;

    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
    O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins,” when the band begins to play.

  4. Another great fisk by Larry. I bet metro sexual body couldn’t even check the fluid levels of a car. I also bet if he rode a bicycle he couldn’t maintain it. He’d have to take it to a bike shop where another man would fix it. Of course Robert Heinlein had the right of it. This applies to all “human beings” but this is a good list of what it would mean to be a man.

    A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

  5. Orvan- Yep!

    Ed- Oh hell no! I’m a starving writer now days…LOL

    McC- Exactly!

    Gerry- I am! 🙂

    NRW- Yep!!!

    Houston- Larry does a great job on those! Re Heinlein, I built a doghouse, but I couldn’t write a sonnet if my life depended on it! Sigh…

  6. I’m still a work in progress, however I’m sick of being criticized by a pack of uncivilized, inerudite things that lack the life knowledge I had when I was 12.

    When I suffered an unexpected death in the family, the arrangements landed squarely on my shoulders and I did what was necessary without complaint. When one moonbat relative (an aged, somewhat demented cuckoo) got on my very last nerve about the division of the estate, I informed her that I was in charge, and that meant we’d do things my way. She went into professional victim mode which lasted for several years (I really didn’t mind – I didn’t have to talk to her), and when it became obvious that others were suffering because of her behavior and that I was the only one who could bring about peace, I did so without complaint or expectation of gratitude.

    I’m just sick and tired of the lunatic Left.

    I’m starting a special savings account. I’m going to buy a watch.

  7. When did everyone get so preachy? Does a razor company really need to explain to a grown ass adult how to act or how their rude and cruel behavior affects others? I’m guessing a creep who catcalls women on the street isn’t going to curb their behavior after watching that commercial. But gear your commercial for #metoo, since women buy most of the household products.

    You can always let your wallet do the talking and get your shaving supplies at Harry’s. https://www.harrys.com/en/us
    Their razors are cheaper than Gillette, and they mail them to your house. My husband and son have been using them for a while, and are really happy with their products.

  8. I just have a question, What in the hell is a “metrosexual”? A SEXUAL that rides a train/subway? A SEXUAL that is glued to a metronome? I guess at 80+ I just cannot grasp all the names attached to folks and always in a derogatory manner! Trans sexual? another person who rides a train? mono and retro I understand, but the rest of it is petty bullshit!! A whole bunch of people need to get over themselves!!

    • Metrosexual – effeminate men from Leftist dominated cities. They’ve grown up in households with no male presence. These are the feminist/gay/trans allies who have no masculinity with which to be toxic. They have been carefully trained by years of college attendance, and possess degrees and certificates without knowledge or skills.

      Summary – toothless weasels in human form. Pajama boy.

  9. Ev- young, urban, heterosexual male with liberal political views, an interest in fashion, and a refined sense of taste… sigh

    • 1. You just can’t walk past a Banana Republic store without making a purchase.

      2. You own 20 pairs of shoes, half a dozen pairs of sunglasses, just as many watches and you carry a man-purse.

      3. You see a stylist instead of a barber, because barbers don’t do highlights.

      4. You can make her lamb shanks and risotto for dinner and Eggs Benedict for breakfast… all from scratch.

      5. You only wear Calvin Klein boxer-briefs.

      6. You shave more than just your face. You also exfoliate and moisturize.

      7. You would never, ever own a pickup truck.

      8. You can’t imagine a day without hair styling products.

      9. You’d rather drink wine than beer… but you’ll find out what estate and vintage first.

      • No longer young, not liberal, fashion is to cover up that which would offend others. Guilty of number 4, mama made sure I could cook. Number 9 on occasion, as for the rest, not only no but hell no! What the heck is a Banana Republic anyway? 😀

        • Mall store. Nothing worth bothering with. I avoid malls now as they annoy me, and as they scream ‘target’ in so many ways.

          And nothing amiss with #4, that’s a real *ability*.

          • And here I was thinking it was clever name for an Ice Cream Parlor specializing in Banana Splits.😏

      • #1 was true, until the early 90’s, when the founders sold it to the Gap, which ruined it. I’m still wearing/using BR stuff I bought in the 80’s.

        • My range bag came from the original BR. It’s a modified Israeli paratrooper bag. Dirt colored canvas with good pockets.

  10. Mrs Crankipants, I think I love you! Great explanation and I find out now these are the folks around here that I just call a bunch of pussy’s! Apologizing to the cats in town! Thanks

  11. Hey Old NFO;

    The culture war is getting worse, when you have companies putting out “woke” commercials alienating half of their customer base isn’t smart business. Get “woke, Go Broke” I suppose. The skills that we have are vanishing, many of the new generation don’t know what we know, their parents and themselves have dropped the ball on learning real life skills.

  12. All- Good points, Mrs.C- You wins the intarwebz with that one…LOL
