    No, feminism teaches women that it's beautiful to be both anorectic (below 50 kg) and obese (above 100 kg). Physically attractive women, depending on their height and muscle mass, should be between 55 to 90 kg.

    Feminism does this because feminism is anti-woman and it's trying to make women as unattractive as possible. Too fat and too skinny, that's wonderful according to feminism, but God forbid that a woman might actually have a sexy body and look like a real adult woman.

    That has nothing to do with it. Russia is a much poorer country and so they don't have capitalist corporations over there, filling the entire food supply with sugar and fat.

    I don't see how that's incompatible with feminism. Feminism is after all about screwing women over (feminism isn't pro-woman, and anyone who believes it is, hasn't really understood feminism).

    Also, SJW and feminism aren't necessarily the same thing. This short film by Gillette, is primarily an attack on white males, and I personally don't think Gillette cares about women.

    Haven't seen their advertising. Could you post some? It'd be interesting to analyze them.

    I'm not sure we can blame Procter & Gamble for that. Women by and large, are obsessed with beauty. Take as an example what a lot of women study, or work with, always something about beauty care, like fixing other women's nails, hair, eyelashes and so on. If men had such an intense interest in female beauty, they wouldn't be seen as normal.

    To the extent that Procter & Gamble is pushing over the top beauty standards for women, they're only in it for the money.

    lol, yeah. Corporations have no credibility. If they can make money on it, they'll literally sell you pure shit. And I don't mean "shit" as in poor quality, but actual shit that someone pooped.

    And yeah, pushing the buttons of Internet right-wingers is good for stock prices. Look what happened to Nike’s stocks when they went SJW and put Colin Kaepernick in their ads and right-wingers burned their Nikes as a result. Of course, Nike is doing this while many of their products are made in Bangladeshi sweatshops.
    So you don't see anything wrong with this commercial? You don't think this Gillette short film is out of touch with reality?

    Who suggested this? Of course Gillette or any other capitalist corporation, aren't economically leftist (because that basically means non-profit). Gillette however, and other corporations, care about keeping up appearances. This is important for any business corporation, to present a clean, kind, wholesome, respectable, utopian, impeccable and immaculate image of their company to the public, so that sales won't be disturbed by scandals and controversies. Which is why Social Justice Warriorism makes sense for Gillette. And Nike, and so on. They're trying to portray themselves as "justice for all" companies, and in doing so, hoping that it'll maximize sales.

    It's kind of like how Michael Jackson portrayed himself as this Jesus-like humanitarian and so on. Obviously that helped him sell more music. Would Michael Jackson have sold as much music if he were like, "yo dawg, fuck da police, aight!"? I doubt it.

    So anyway, a leftist public image is good for business. Doesn't mean that Gillette, Dove and Nike have to buy the entire ideological package.

    this is probably because men buy more razors than women so they can go lower with the price. the more a product gets bought the more you can play with the price for it I think

    Of course that's the reason. That's also why soy milk is more expensive than cow milk, even though soy milk is much cheaper to produce: supply and demand. Because soy milk doesn't sell nearly as much as ordinary milk (for now), there's just not that much soy milk being produced, so they charge more for soy milk due to the rules of supply and demand. But prices have gone down on soy milk nowadays, compared to five years ago, which is obviously due to more people buying soy milk nowadays and as a consequence, a lot more soy milk is being produced, which makes soy milk cheaper at the end of the day, which is great.

    That said, Gillette is hardly a pro-woman company.

    By classical definitions Leftism is Capitalism.

    Classical Liberalism / Economic Liberalism / Neo-Liberalism are all different names for Capitalist free-markets.

    Also note the first Leftists were in fact Capitalists for Democracy in the French Revolution, against the Right-Wing Authoritarians for Monarchy, Feudalism, and Traditional rights.

    The confusion comes a little later, when some Socialists / Communists also joined the French Revolution as Leftists.

    Personally, I think they botched the actual definitions.

    For example, I don't think Capitalism has anything to do with Conservatism, for instance, Capitalism is not only technically Liberalism as in loosening up regulations, or loosening up values of the free-market.

    But, Capitalism leads to Liberalism, Capitalism is what we see here, companies selling Liberalism for publicity like Gillette here.

    Capitalism is definitely Liberalism.
    Pornography is Capitalism, selling Abortions by private Hospitals that sometimes happens, and they'd love to see more of is also Capitalism.
    Hollywood smut, and degenerate films are Liberalism, and Capitalism.
    Same with the media, Liberalism, and Capitalism.
    Or Gangster Rap music on MTV, or on the radio, is Capitalism, and Liberalism.

    Not to mention Zuckerbergs Facebook, and Larry Pages Youtube censoring out anybody who's Conservative, but not going after much, if anything that's Leftist extremism.


    Now even selling illicit drugs like Crack-Cocaine, LSD, Heroin, is Capitalism, simple supply & demand.
    Same with Prostitution, women selling their bodies for profits, a tenet of supply, and demand Capitalism.

    In general Capitalism, and Liberalism go hand, and hand, anything to make profits, selling Gay wedding banquets, apparel, and merchandise, selling Che Guevara T-Shirts for profit, selling Obama T-Shirts for profit.

    Of course all the Illegal Immigrants being hired by companies to do the dirty work, and cheap labor, is Capitalism, same with H-2B VISA people coming in to work cheaper, for a skill.

    Then there's the anti-Nationalist measures of outsourcing jobs outside of your nation.
    Not to mention anti-Nationalist measures of having outsiders buy up your nations companies, and resources.

    It's all Capitalism, it's all Liberalism, and it all sucks.

    Capitalism is for Chimp Chumps.

    The only reason why Capitalism even has a following, is because Western Europeans are often thoughtless Individualist savages.

    Not to say some Slavs here, and there aren't like this.
    But, ultimately Slavs are more likely to be logical thinkers, and Westerners are irrational idiots.

    Modern "left" and "right" has less (if any) to do with economics except taxes. It's more of social movements and government regulations.

    Modern politics is like Orwell's 2 + 2 = 5.

    It's really not that far off, especially in American politics.

    Not only do classical / text-book original definitions say that economic Liberalism is Capitalist free-markets.

    But, social Liberalism is definitely fostered better under Capitalism.

    People will sell out to Liberalism, and unpatriotic ideals of Capitalist profits until some authoritarian Right-Winger stops them.

    That's the thing, it is like Orwell's 1984, the West is so brainwashed, especially American Republicans, thinking that much like 2+2=5, that Capitalism = social Conservatism.

    Not only is it not true, it's the exact opposite in practice, where companies feed off of selling out to the Liberal agenda.

    So, no matter who you vote for in America, you get Capitalist Liberalism, it's just one is slightly Paleoconservative / Neoconservative in undertones, the other is a little bit Social Democracy in undertones.

    But, in practice there has been absolutely no social Conservative party in the USA, (Maybe on a couple of things like illicit drugs, and prostitution)
    However, the Republicans are pretty weak for people with actual social Conservative values, the Capitalist elite Republicans do want Immigrants here for cheap labor, and skills, and to fill labor shortages, it doesn't really matter how much it costs us, Republican elite Capitalists do tend to favor Illegal Immigrants, and also H-2B Visa people.

    As for Republicans they've folded like a tortilla on a taco, when it comes to things like Pornography, or Abortion.

    Now, I don't really know how this is, because clearly, nearly 99% of the time since Roe vs Wade, the majority of Americans have been fairly, to very anti-Abortion.

    So, it's not direct Democracy, and it's not just a monstrosity, but apparently Republicans are too weak, impotent, or even accomplices in the Abortion debacle.

    Anyways, this isn't the first time that Capitalist companies have pushed the limits of Liberalism.
