But second, the only ones who young girls not properly educated on the biology of it (either by the fault of their parents or the education system), and, those messed up mentally into believing they are female when they are not. I wonder if that's the plan here? To further the mental manipulation of children who are being told it's okay to "think" you are a girl even though you are a boy.
And hey look for those guys who have been brainwashed into thinking they are girls here's a commercial to make you feel more comfortable about something that isn't natural and twenty years from now you'll be seeking therapy on for the rest of your life.
This ranks as #2 behind that horrid toxic masculinity garbage spewed out by Gillette earlier this year. I wonder if it was the same marketing morons who came up with it? I wonder if Jessica Yaniv works for this advertising firm?
If we weren't so horribly messed up in our sense of reality and trying to make boys into girls and girls into boys young people today wouldn't be so damned confused to think we would even need a commercial like this.
Let's say this was targeting real boys and men. You know what? We don't care! We know that girls and women get their periods and so what. And that scene with the couple making out? I mean seriously, how many women do you know want to get "involved" when their bodies are going through that time of the month. Just, umm no.
My guess would be though that this rather fraked up commercial takes aim at the first theory that we are somehow trying to make periods experienced by both girls and umm males.
But the point made “Would we be able to talk openly about them, without shame? Half the population does have a period, and we want to broaden the conversation to everyone, no period required.” Umm, why the frak would we need to??
What kind of twisted idiot feels that periods or menstruation should need to be openly discussed and normalized (more than it already is, after all, 50% of the population know it happens personally and part of the other 50% will hear about it at some point - probably on one of their first near intimate encounters with their girlfriends').
What shall we normalize next as we sit in the local coffee shop talking over our double-doubles? How about wetting the bed, male masturbation, or maybe women who fantasize about making out with that other really cute woman at work? I think that last one might have its' own website though.
And all this to advertise underwear? Remember the olden days when people (girls/women) were intelligent enough to know they needed ways to better... contain their periods and that hey, just putting it on the ad somewhere in writing would be enough? So it's a pair of underwear that protects the outside world, ie clothing, bedsheets, etc, while on your period (sorry for the blunt description but there it is). So, just say that?
Our society is getting royally fraked up. It's sad when only ABC, CBS, and BBC seem to see that and reject it outright. It did, apparently air on Bravo, Oxygen, MTV, BET and VH1 which, in the end, isn't really saying much if you know those networks at all.
What's next pregnancy ads depicting men as pregnant in awkward situations like high schools, or maybe dressed as nuns? This nonsense is why I don't watch ads (normally) or regular television anymore.
