RE: The woke capitalism thread [Get woke, go broke]
The fallout continues for Proctor & Gamble's Gillette brand, which has been referenced multiple times on this thread.

If you're just tuning in, they came up with a campaign earlier in the year called "The Best Men Can Be," which more or less accused the very men who buy their products of being guilty of "toxic masculinity. For a good refresher, read this Forbes piece.

The campaign provoked outrage among customers, even thought the propagandists in the corporate media world praised it. The company ended up losing a lot of money -- and took an $8 billion writedown, in fact.

Despite claiming they didn't care, they're now doing damage control with a new ad campaign about "local heroes" (aren't all heroes local, when you get down to it?). Anyway, rather than link a bunch of articles, I'm posting a video (which I rarely do), because YouTuber Tim Pool pulls all the points together really well.

Seriously, the world didn't end because of this. Life was carefree and fun and people were just not so damn uptight.

It was a different era - where fun was more important and where diversity meant a hot black girl or a masculine black guy flexing his muscles. And it was all fun and good-natured without feminist hysteria or insane forced propaganda push.

Now Bud Light is fighting the mythical non-existent pay gap, it shits on men, pushes various other causes like a SJW maniac straight out of Antifa school.

Further proof, that even if you were foolish enough to attempt to placate silly Soycialists.
They'll simply find something new to complain about.

As retarded as the new Batwoman may be to us.
Apparently it's not anywhere near 'double-plus good' enough. Cause the actress is not Jewish in real life & ID's as 'gender-fluid', rather than simply as a lesbian...

Marvel hired of course a Muslim SJW for the upcoming Disney+ TV series of Ms Marvel:


Twitter personally closed that account and no tweet is visible, plus she deleted 5000 tweets, because of such gems:

Oh - yeah - the US is a country built on violence while all the Muslim expansion happened via roses and gifts and they still continue to this day treating many of their workers like slaves.

That such individuals get hired by Marvel and Disney should tell you something. They want people who absolutely hate you. That is why they hired so many SJWs and crazy feminists for the Witcher TV series - giving you scrotum armor for the patriarchy.

Even then you'd think...you would THINK that they would have the grade school level EQ required to understand that a message is far more convincing when it's pushed in a positive manner rather than just crapping on people.

They don't. They're terrible propagandists as things go. 90's propaganda was far more effective because it wasn't insulting and belittling, and generally just focused on showcasing positive attributes to what they were trying to push (e.g. X-Men).

I saw all the writers being hired for the phase 4 and they are going full cultural marxism. It's actually pissing me off, and I normally can care less. Maybe it's because it's so blatant and no normie saying anything about it. I'm glad there's still places on the net ready to call out and inform about this bs cause even I wouldn't have known about this muslim writer's calling for america's death had not dedicated people searched her info and collaborated information on her.

That's because the propaganda was written by talented normalsexual western men, whether they knew its purpose or not.

The irony is that if there are actually any non-normalsexual non-western non-men talented enough to create subtle propaganda they will be decried by their fellow foreign, sexually confused vaginakin as 95% Hitler for failing to promote full-retard SJW garbage.

RE: The woke capitalism thread [Get woke, go broke]
the thing is once the subtle propaganda has worked, you have an entire generation ready for blatant propaganda - and agreeing with it. I've noticed with the latest season of Stranger Things - which I made the mistake of watching - that they almost spell out feminist tropes almost word by word. Don't even look the statistics on the money that show has made and how many people watched it or liked it - it's depressing. I too am like 'please, if you're gonna give me propaganda, at least make it artistically' but that level of sophistication is not needed anymore - clearly.

ask a 60 year old woman today if she thinks a lady's place is at home taking care of the children and she'll say obviously not, women should be independent and have jobs and they are as good or better than any man.

in 20 years ask a 60 year old woman if she thinks kids can determine their 'gender' and she'll agree with that. But it had to be that first, subtle step to open the door.

It's like the frog in boiling water - the propaganda is the heat, it starts slowly but once it picks up, you are used to it, so it won't bother you. Until you die of course.

Don't call it a grave, it's the future you chose.

I like the names the Fandom Menace - anti-SJW-Hollywood guys give the following creators:

Dan and Dave from GOT = Dumb and Dumber
Rian Johnson = Ruin Roundhead Johnson
JJ Abrams = Jar Jar Abrams
Tika Waititi (after his recent SJW comments regarding the woke female Thor) = Tika Woketiti

Bad Robot of JarJar Abrams = Bad Reboot

I keep yelling you guys, (((someone)))) is making a killing off of gay things.

I suggest a gay restaurant that serves gay food. Well, someone took my advice, sort of, and is opening a gay bank.

GAY BANK IN MiCHIGAN!!!

Guess what, if you open a checking account at Bank of America now, you are a filthy bigot. Other marginalized groups need to step on this bandwagon. Instead of buying Big Gay Icecream imagune if a white liberal could chose Detained Migrant Ice Cream.

Money in the bank.

Aloha!

I don’t think it is unreasonable for a man to expect his family to be home when he arrives. It wasn’t always this way. Until six months ago I could count on a warm welcome and a nice supper. Not any more. Something changed and I am not sure it is for the better.

Darcy and I had been married for six years. We met in high school, and had the wedding right after I finished college. I had never been with another girl. Darcy was normal in every way, and I felt comfortable being married to her. She had brown hair, brown eyes, a nice figure, and normal breasts. She didn’t stand out; just blended in. Because of this, I never had any reason to doubt her fidelity. Maybe that is the reason I should have.

We had two beautiful, four year old, twin daughters: Janet and Janice. I loved them dearly but Darcy didn’t seem to feel the same way. She didn’t enjoy the childbirth and insisted that I get fixed immediately afterwards. For the first few years, she would look forward to my getting home, so that I could look after the twins. Then we met Bill and Emily.

Emily Mercer could not have children of her own and would volunteer to baby sit every chance she got. Darcy was elated. She could get out of the house and go shopping, or take care of other personal things, any time she wanted.

When I Googled this it came up under "Cuckold And Hot Wife Stories." Not exactly what this forum is about. But since you posted, let me give you my two cents as a professional writer/editor/copy editor.

Whoever wrote this needs to take a writing course in fiction. One of the first things you learn is the importance of naming your characters.

The daughters in this story have the names of old women: Janet and Janice. This makes it seem like the story is taking place in 1940, when kids had those names. This is most likely misleading.

Assuming the story is supposed to be set in modern times, the daughters should get names like Ava and Emilia, which are popular names for girls in 2019. Names have a way of coming 'round again in popularity, but it's going to take another generation for Janet and Janice to circle back.

Right now, Janet is the woman in the accounting division calling to question you about your vacation time, not the little daughter playing on the trampoline in the backyard. How's that for creative writing?

RE: The woke capitalism thread [Get woke, go broke]
There's a lot of getting woke right now but not a lot of going broke. Considering how debased the Terminator franchise is, Dark Fate has an uphill battle even without the wokeness so it failing can be easily rationalized. What we need is a major bomb like Rise of Skywalker or a female Avengers movie completely tanking in order to send the proper message. Nevertheless, the holdout is gonna be Disney because they have cash to burn and they have activist executives (similar to Gilette who think writing off 8 bil is the right thing to do for the sake of social engineering). I can't even keep up with the woke level of recent announcements regarding MCU Phase 4 and Star Wars. Every announcement is oozing with wokeness. Pretty much the only positive was that supposedly Elsa won't have a girlfriend in Frozen 2 (which doesn't necessarily mean she isn't still going to turn out to be a lesbian). Grasping at straws like this is all we can do right now. Everything is woke these days, Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Marvel Comics, DCEU, DC Comics (...who just hired Zoe Quinn), James Bond, Harry Potter-verse (everyone's retroactively gay because of JK Rowling MUST virtue-signal), plus just about every streaming show around right now (next up: Watchmen), games. If we aren't at peak woke, we're damn close.

< They will continue to push the wokeness relentlessly on all levels. There will likely be enough useful idiots who will buy tickets not caring about anything so long as there is one masculine superhero in an MCU movie. Occassionally you will have companies pull away slightly from that like with the DC-Universe - Aquaman & Joker.

But they hired JarJar Abrams, so the wokening will intensify. Hollywood sometimes in the past persisted heavily on certain narratives and would not let go of it. People forget that the Hollywood sheisters already were full in the cultural marxist grip - albeit more in the nihilistic negative vein of the 1970s. It was only the success of movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones that re-established a more positive spin on things. The current Hollywood crap is even worse than the pretentious nihilistic marxist drivel of some 1970s movies, because at least you had plenty of good parts as well - of a darker bent as well as action and Western movies.

Whatever - art output usually follows a culture and since the Western societies get destroyed by wokeness, then so does their art - all by the same people.

And the move to keep out-woking the wokeness continues:

Seems like every established character is going to get a race/gender swap going forward, for woke-points.

An employment tribunal in London heard that Macken was often rudely dismissed by one of her bosses, who would brush off her questions by saying “not now Stacey”. The phrase was used so frequently that her colleagues started to use the phrase sarcastically. Smile

An employment tribunal in London heard that Macken was often rudely dismissed by one of her bosses, who would brush off her questions by saying “not now Stacey”. The phrase was used so frequently that her colleagues started to use the phrase sarcastically. Smile

Quote:Macken was recruited on an annual salary of £120,000. But just months later, a male colleague was hired under the same job title for £160,000. That same co-worker took home about £237,000 in bonuses over a five-year period, seven times more than the combined £33,000 offered to Macken.

Women at higher-level jobs can't negotiate shit. Even female HR managers admitted this to me saying that the men just demanded more, were willing to negotiate with other competitors while women just took the first offer that was given. In most jobs you cannot negotiate much.

She could only blame herself and not gender-bias.

London city bankers are a bit rough and do hazing-like rituals and follow frat-boy behavior. Swiss investment bankers know about this, but obviously Mrs Cupcake couldn't play with the boys on equal footing, because women simply can't. They didn't treat her any differently than they would treat an odd autistic collegue. Women ruin everything.
