Episode 8: "Toxic" Masculinity - A guy like you should wear a warning...
We’re flipping the script this week to discuss some “current events”.
[01:20] So about that Gillette ad… The ad sparked a lot of outrage on the right, but Christina thinks the backlash to is a little misplaced.
Ben Shapiro dissects the ad in National Review: https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/01/gillette-commercial-toxic-masculinity-debate/
[08:20] Don’t girls bully too, though? Where are the ad campaigns targeting female bullying?
[12:10] Are we cool with corporations lecturing us on morality? Maybe not… but it’s to be expected these days.
[14:45] All of this comes on the heels of backlash over a report issues by the American Psychological Association about masculinity. There’s lots to be concerned about when it comes to our men...but is masculinity one of them?
[22:30] Yes, the APA did try to backtrack and clear things up...Take it for what you will!
[24:40] BACK to the Women’s March… A LOT has happened since we dedicated our last two episodes to the organizations…
[25:50] We play a clip from Tamika Mallory’s appearance on The View and holy crap.. How can the Women’s March even claim to NOT be anti-semitic at this point? Also: How hard is it to condemn Louis Farrakhan?
