Mr. Twister

We have to stop promoting mental illness

philg -- Gillette’s advertising has moved on to address the challenge of shaving by the transgendered (latest ad with father and daughter-turned-son; unfortunate comments: “Does the razor shave away the 40% suicide rate?”, “We have to stop promoting mental Illness”, and “Gillette: the best my wife’s boyfriend can get”). Is the ad actually insulting to the LGBTQIA+ community? A cisgender teenage male is generally considered intelligent enough to use a cartridge razor system without a lot of assistance from a parent.
