    How is the Gillette/Proctor & Gamble boycott doing in your neck of the woods?

    Is it "getting woke, going broke" where you live?

    Where I shop, their shavers have been heavily discounted. When I see those displays, I make a point of buying a competing brand that visit so there will be contrasting sales figures for the retailer. Over the last year, Gillette has been offering deeper and deeper discounts, but they can't maintain their ad budget, match their store brand competitor, and still make a profit.

    I want them to get so desperate to win back their customer base, they donate to build a battered men's shelter.

    I had bought a huge 72 shaver package from them 3 years ago. Didn't throw them out, but use one every month or two, just so they will remind me for the rest of life to boycott all P&G products.

    Anyone else have any ideas how we can vote with our wallets? In this coming economic recovery, our spending will have an outsized influence.

    Oh, and please remember to hold off any large purchases you will make until we get closer to the election. We need the economy to really take off around August so pollsters will register improved consumer confidence right before the election.

    I told a car salesman in October of 2008 I would only buy a new car if Obama wasn't elected.
    I made sure to not buy any new cars during the 8 years of the Obama administration, and told my dealer I was only buying my latest car because of the Trump economy. I delayed several major purchases until after 2016, and let the merchants know.

    It looks like SJW limpy wick dick marketing is coming to an end, not by choice, but rather by market dictations.

    Jillette won't be hiring any feminist marketing agencies in the near and distant future, and they now serve as a warning beacon/siren to any other man specific products.

    It only takes a little time and understanding before leaders gain followers, keep the spearheads sharp and always flying! Who knows what heart and soul they'll pierce? As long as the leaders keep throwing them we have nothing to worry about.

    We're the ones, the bastards that made feminism a bad word and something to be ashamed of, keep going, some day it'll be dead, and it's WOMEN that will be KILLING IT!

    And we say women are manipulative? That may be so in a 10 minute time frame, but in the long long long haul, they have nothing on us! We change countries, continents, and cultures, always have, always will, even with insurmountable resistance!

    Feminism dies one man at a time.

    Since the 1st advertisement I switched to Wilkinson and I won’t go back to Gillette. I will not support a company by buying their products, who shits on their customer base the same way Gillette did.

    If they go out of business good I won’t cry a tear, maybe they learn their lesson which I highly doubt, because the following advertisement they did was a young cisgender who never shaved before.


    I say Gillette didn’t learn anything from it. If they go bankrupt well too bad for them I have no compassion whatsoever. Let them go bankrupt which unfortunately will never happen. Anyways, my boycott is for life time.

    Re: How is the Gillette/Proctor & Gamble boycott doing in your neck of the woods?

    Several years ago I made the move to old-school, off-brand safety razors & blades from Amazon. The shave is much better, less waste, and much cheaper! I even bought one for my daughter and she loves it. Around here, I make a mental note whenever I see some bright pink HVAC van, or hear some repair shop commercial with two women prattling on like they know what they're talking about - when the script they are reading was likely written by a MAN. Another example is any company offering discounts to single mothers or discounts simply for being a woman. I will go out of my way to not use these companies. And in case anyone is wondering - no passes for my daughter. When her 4runner needs any kind of servicing, she pays for parts, brings it over and we work on it TOGETHER. She gets her hands dirty and gets to know her truck while saving money.

    Naah. They did it to themselves. It's like the word "cripple" or "retard": no matter what they are calling it these days, it can't help but become pejorative because it means what it does.

    I also made the switch to Wilkinsons and have been very happy with the service. I have made the decision to stop using all proctor & gamble products as well.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself; you will overcome it!

    That, sir, is true equity. Hats off to you! My grandfather raised my mom the same way during the great depression. My mom is a window into good womanhood, she's half the reason I'm MGTOW, modern women can't hold a candle to her! Not that she's perfect, nobody is, but by god's grace she's close!

    Gillette's "Woke" Ad that Insulted Men Cost P&G Billions

    https://www.redstate.com/brandon_morse/2019/07/31/gillettes-woke-ad-insulted-men-cost-pg-billions/

    They're partly right. A net loss of that much money can only mean that those who do shave have abandoned Gillette en masse, and rightly so. Gillette's commercial that blanketed the male gender with the accusation of "toxic masculinity" while using feminist buzzwords and clips of hard-left news organizations was one of the most hated commercials of the past decade.

While it has traditionally marketed its razors to men — "the best a man can get" — Gillette has been trying to reach new demographics in a bid to revive a flagging business that has seen a decline in demand for razors and blades.

    The only useful vote we have is the one we express with our wallets by supporting friendly brands and with our balls by avoiding marriage.

    That's a vote that's not up for debate!

    I'm a tsar, emperor, king, dictator, and god over the destiny of my own balls! Another man's balls? Let him put them through a press if that's what he desires, but he has not right nor duty to sign me up for that shit!

    Besides, I'm strictly prohibited by law and order from voting, including but not limited to other lawful activities!

    Around here it's 25 wolves and one sheep voting on what's for dinner!

    You know what Sam? I never noticed that until you brought it up. Stores in my area do have steep discounts on Gillette products. They usually have coupons for $4 off a $9 product. I will admit I am guilty because I thought it was a good deal and ended up picking up a pack of disposable blades for my Fusion 5. It was a mistake and I wasen't thinking clearly. Forgive me.

    Actually, you are still helping a bit.

    If you never buy again unless they give you 44% discount, you are still teaching them a lesson. "I will not buy your product unless you sell it to me cheaper than your non-woke rivals, or even less than your generic competitors."

    What is their profit margin if they have to discount the product so much? Granted, because of the advertising and the brand loyalty of their customers, they are probably 50 cents worth of material is going into every blade they sell you for $3, but how long can they keep that up?

    I know some people saw those $4 off $9 and stocked up. Maybe stocked up that they wont have to buy again for a few years. When it comes for them to start buying again, they will be very resistant to paying $9 again. Except, Gillette will want to sell them that same package for $11 because of inflation and because petroleum (what plastic is made of) will cost more 2 or 3 years from now. That customer will look at the new, higher price, and after gotten accustomed to $5 price, they won't pay a higher full price, and will switch.

    Those deep discount coupons are a sign of desperation. They are trying hard to maintain, or reconnect, customer loyalty, and hope their customers forget about the insulting commercial debacle.

    If I had a bunch of those coupons, I'd be tempted to stock up like crazy.....until I went to my big box store and saw a just as good generic product replacement.

    For all we know, the decision was either sell at near-cost to maintain brand loyalty, or, in order to keep your factories open, produce generic equivalent for the big chain, big box, big discount outlets.

    More reasons Jillette might letting inventory sell at such a discount are that
    - warehouse space is expensive, and
    - they absolutely do not want to lose that valuable real estate, those excellent positions on the shelf at the big box store.

    If they are not on those shelves constantly, the big box store will allocate that space to someone else.

    COVID-19 might also be playing a role.

    If you don't have to go to the office or shop or factory because you are under Corona house arrest, you will probably be shaving less...or not at all.

    The mindset behind Jillette is the same mindset behind the people of Massachusetts, mainly the gynocentric torch carrying white knight types and people that have sex with everything.
