Oh, for fuck’s sake.
A new Gillette commercial was released on social media Thursday, showing a father teaching his transgender son how to shave with a Gillette razor.
The advertisement features transgender Toronto artist, Samson Bonkeabantu Brown, as he learns how to shave from his father, following his transition from female to male, according to Fox News.
“Growing up I was always trying to figure out what man I wanted to become and I’m still trying to find out what kind of man I want to become,” Brown says as the ad begins.
The ad shows Brown in front of a sink attempting to shave for the first time as his father coaches him through it.
“Now, don’t be scared, don’t be scared. Shaving is about being confident,” Brown’s father advises.
“I’m at the point in my manhood where I’m actually happy. It’s not just myself transitioning, it’s everybody around me transitioning,” Brown explains as the ad comes to a close.
So, according to Gillette, grotesquely obese beached whales are the new standard of female “beauty,” and the measure of a “man” is how much of a woman he once was. Got it. I think.
Hey, anybody remember back when Gillette was in the business of selling razors, rather than promulgating politically-correct “teachable moments” so as to enlighten all us ign’ernt troglodytes? Nah, me neither.
