Why are some men so afraid of the new Gillette #MeToo commercial?
That’s the only explanation, right? The razor company has a new commercial that takes its decades-old slogan, “The best a man can get,” and turns it on its ear. The ad, which depicts bullying, sexual harassment and more – toxic masculinity, in other words — asks, “Is this the best a man can get?”
And a lot of men have taken to social media to lash out at Gillette and the commercial — just for reference, on YouTube, the spot has garnered 289,000 likes and a whopping 683,000 dislikes.
Why? It doesn’t take a sociologist or a psychologist to recognize a lot of guilt and fear masquerading as anger.
