My response to Gillette was like my responses to Dick's and Nike, buying elsewhere.

I patronize Road Runners, REI, and Sports Basement.

I've bought Hoka, Brooks, and Mizuno shoes.

And I just signed up for Harry's.

Did you watch the ad in the OP? Would love to get your take on it.

Well done!

Gillette didn't have to tell me rape is wrong. Gillette didn't have to tell me harassing women is wrong. Gillette didn't have to tell me violence and bullying is wrong. My parents taught me that, directly, through parochial school, and through church.

I'm hoping Gillette and P & G learn something else my parents taught me: tarring the many good with the evil done by few is wrong.

I signed up for Harry's yesterday. That company might get more business than it can handle.

exactly. My sister in law (who can a piece of work) posted the gillette ad on facebook and asks why people get offended when they need to get educated.

the ad offends me because they paint all men with a broad brush as needing improvement without recognizing that many men are good and contribute much to society.

Those stats should be really sharp. I'm keen about hearing how they did. :biggrin-new:
