I had a brief period of time where being “the straight white male” got me all worked up. I kept hearing “it obviously doesnt apply to you if you dont follow the stigma” which I thought was a cop-out ass answer during confrontation… but it’s really true. I’m a dude. I’m white. I’m straight. I work a blue-collar-ish job. I live in a fucking suburb, I liked getting hammered and fighting at parties when I was younger, getting dirty as a kid. But… I never run into the issue of being “targeted” by anyone for my “privelage”. I get along with all walks of life, and brush pretty much everything off. Somewhere along the lines, events like this commercial stopped pissing me off, and generally just goes right over my head.
We’re in a time where everyone has to radically align to their beliefs. For whatever reason I’m not sure, but it doesnt seem to effect me with my current ethics and ideals.
Tldr; I dont really see a point in being offended. I think the commercials lame, but I’m also not the radical belief of straight white men, and people I meet seem to be aware of that vibe so… whatever, you do you, Gillette.
