I stopped buying Gillette products years ago after the frustration of getting any supermarket razor dispenser to even work, that and the ransom level cost of cartridges.

F' me? NO - F' YOU Gillette.

They sized up their customer base wrong. Liberal men don't buy razors because they either don't have pubic hair or are into the hipster-beard aesthetic.

I'll stick to my Wilkinson Sword, and Gillete can stick to their awful woke advertsing campaigns.

If these companies want to start pushing their politics, I will stop buying their product. It doesn't matter what side they stand on. And I have a very good long term memory. I will likely never buy their products again. Business and politics should be separate, period.

I hope other wanna be political activists posing as business people take notice. Unfortunately, in most cases, the people pushing their politics did not build these businesses, so they do not care if they destroy them in the process. They can always jump to the next company, rinse wash and repeat.

Gillette was just listening to their Woke marketing team, and bet wrong.
