I found this more disturbing than I am able to put into words. Is this a real company, and a real product, and a real commercial. Or…is it next level social satire?
No, it’s corporate social engineering. For sure. The way you know is that you get that dark, metallic feeling in your gut. You’ve been struck by a large, evil object. A wrecking ball. Something is trying to do away with everything you ever thought was a solid fact. Such as: Men don’t menstruate.
Now, let’s unpack the Guilt Trip: Are we supposed to feel proud these woke men for imagining they are menstruating for the sake of feeling solidarity with women for the small hassle of keeping menstrual products from…falling out of their bags? Excited about the prospect of men dealing with blood spots on sheets? I’ve been a woman my whole life and it never occurred to me to resent men for not having to deal with menstrual products. They have to go fight wars. Get blown up. Fall off scaffolding and die building buildings and bridges. That kind of thing. We have a way way cushier deal in life than they do! No comparison.
Is this karmic punishment because I never thanked men enough for all the things they deal with that I don’t have to deal with?
I literally feel nauseous and cold. I’m sorry to publish this but…do you believe me now that “identity politics” has nothing to do with improving the human condition and everything to do with driving us out of our minds and destroying life on earth?
Count me as not at all woke, never to be woke, fast asleep, and more conservative by the day. This is truly dreadful. But many thing are dreadful. This is in addition, impossible to fathom. People got paid to write, shoot, edit, and promote this commercial?
I don’t know what to do.
