"Retoxify Masculinity!"

There's thinking outside the box, and then there's Col. Kurt.
We need more masculinity, and the more toxic the social justice warriors think it is, the better....

Much as I advocate global warming, I am a strong proponent of toxic masculinity. It’s also known as “masculinity.”




These are the qualities the SJWs want to wring out of us. Why? Because these are the qualities they cannot overcome. They want us weak, passive and obedient. That’s how they get power.... Don’t be fooled by the “toxic” qualifier – all masculinity is toxic to these human weebles. What they call “toxic” is really the essence of freedom. It’s toxic all right, but to their goals, not ours. Masculinity means freedom from them and the puffy, non-binary utopia they dreamed up because that’s the only world in which such losers could be anything more than a sorry punchline....

When some thug who didn’t get the memo about hugging is breaking down the door to get you, do you want some neckbeard sissy with a disposable Gillette standing by your side, or a toxic male with a 12-gauge Mossberg loaded with buckshot racking in a shell?...

Don’t let it happen.

Buy guns.

Drink beer.

And tell the SJWs to go to hell.

If if Gillette were correct in their assessment, it's not their job to tell men how to behave.

Imagine that ad targeting any other group. Latinas! Is this the best you can do? Deeply offensive.

It is indeed not their job, and it is only coherent with their corporate ethics if they think they can make money for their shareholders and stakeholders doing so. Which is to say, by nature, corporate marketing has a very limited ethical and moral world. Either they're acting principally out of a desire to extract your money rather than for some other moral end, or else they're being unethical on their own terms.

They're a bad source of advice. I wouldn't take a corporation's advice on how to live even if it were a brand I liked a lot better. Guinness or Harley-Davidson, say. They're welcome to market products I might like, and I might buy those products if I do, but preaching isn't their proper business.

Yeah, but what's on the tee shirt- like all danger signs, radiation, bio-hazard, etc, toxic masculinity needs a symbol. Maybe a equilateral triangle formed of a Fender stratocaster crossed with an AR15, and a Harley underneath, and the header "Toxic Male", or "Seriously Toxic".
And underneath, "get over it", or "everything you love, we built", etc.

Or maybe something like the Isle of Mann roadrace symbol, but with muscular arms radiating from a center point, holding various items- beer mugs, chainsaws,rifles, etc. "Toxic- because problems don't fix themselves".

toxic masculinity needs a symbol.

No, I don't. Everyone can see the reality of me; I need no euphemism for that.

I’ll see what I can do, Raven.

I inherited some Gillette razors after the recent death of my brother-in-law. I believe they have four blades. The Gillettes don't do any better than the double blade disposable razors that cost me $2-$4 for a dozen- offhand I don't remember the cost. Conclusion: it is a waste of money to purchase Gillette stuff, as Gillette stuff costs a lot more but isn't any better.

Coincidentally, my brother-in-law worked for Gillette for several decades, but went on to bigger and better job opportunities in the '80s.

raven said...

The symbol may need a straight razor as well- for maximum toxicity.

The reason symbols are important-they frame what others see.

“Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are.”
― Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince

We have a great example recently, with the French government supplying their opposition with a ready made symbol/uniform. this is truly tasty irony.

E Hines said...

Another translation of the quote, with some added context is this: Every one sees what you appear to be, few really know what you are...and in the actions of all men...which it is not prudent to challenge, one judges by the result.

Some I don't need to experience what I really am until I act. Others know and have nothing about which to care one way or another.

Grim and Raven -

I am no designer but I worked with the documentation and labeling of hazards and toxic material for years. A design for "toxic masculinity" would combine
the classical antique male / iron circle-with-arrow ; and the bio-hazard triangle of modern industrial communications:



The "male" should probably be in a red color with the three broken-circles-in-a-triangle in green, overlain. The stenciled text would be "toxic male" to replace the "biohazard".

Should you REALLY want to enhance this, a text box in black and white, similar to the warnings on a cigarette package, could be added. Something to the effect that the "container" may be susceptible to spontaneous and uncontrolled emissions, each with the theoretical potential (at 50 million sperm per milliliter of ejaculate) to impose life altering changes upon every young adult female in the nation. It's a risk strictly comparable to that of developing lung cancer due to plutonium exposure.

E Hines said...

Since toxic males are inherently broken, maybe the male arrow coming off each of the three red broken circles rather than overlaying one symbol over the other. An ironic symbol. Or a symbol that, through the openings in each circle, welcomes all.

I have a sketch.

raven said...

Good. I have a curiosity!

Grim said...

It was your idea, so you'll be in the loop. I'm having it inked over the weekend. Next week, we'll see what we can do with it.
