Transcript for Sara reacts to Gillette's new 'toxic masculinity' ad
Oh, yes. The ad. Did anyone see this new ad they put out? It's been causing a lot of conversation. It's about toxic masculinity, and it says the best men can be is raising many questions, and we have a little clip of the ad we're going to show you. Bullying. The me too movement against sexual harassment. Masculinity. Is this the best a man can get? Is it? Bullying. A problem. We can't hide from it. Harassment is taking over Hollywood. It's been going on far too long. We can't laugh it off. What I actually think she's trying to say -- Making the same old excuses. Boys will be boys. Boys will be boys. Boys will be boys. But something needs to change. So you guys get it. In the top of the video, it mentions bullying, the me too movement, toxic masculinity, and it asks the question, is this the best we can get? But there has been some pushback to this. A lot of pushback to this ad and some peoe are calling for boycotting the company. So I'm just curious. Feeling? Okay.so first of all, I felt it was a bit reductive meaning it kind of went to the worst possible scenar in each one, and they not all masculinity is toxic when we talk about that term, and it's not about the individual. Whenever I have this conversation with my husband, I'm, like, this doesn't mean that you did this. As a society over time, we created an image of what men and boys should be, so as a man when you watch that, you shouldn't see that it's directed right at you. It's saying we all did this as a society. So I think it's important, Carla and I were both saying, it starts a conversation which I think is the important thing. I don't think they hit the mark because I'm more inspired in advertisements when you say, run like a girl. It doesn't mean what it used to. I'm, like, let's go run. I'm motivated by positive messaging. This felt -- it just missed the mark for me. I'm, like, I don't think it was pointed at the individual which at one point, I'm, like, if I wasn't raised that way -- and I wasn't raised that way. You were raised well. I was raised to say, yes. Whatever you ladies say, I'll do it. But I think what it does even if you weren't raised that way, but you are raising your kids -- Yes. -- You are very conscious of raising them the right way. Right. And not laxing and saying, I wasn't raised that way. My kids will get it. No. You have to teach kids, and I think that's the lesson behind it and it has started a conversation that we hope that evolves into the most positive of ways, but I'm not boycotting. I need to shave, people.
