I see what you’re saying. What I don’t understand is the need to deflect the fact that such male behaviors are toxic by pointing out that other people have toxic behaviors. Why can’t you see this and think, “They’re right. This isn’t the best we can do.” Why does it have to become an inequity? Is there a reason to push back against being a better man? Is it like a ego version of “well, if Johnny doesn’t have to eat his peas, I don’t have to!” Because that is the logic of six year olds, not men. If we only held ourselves accountable when every single person in the world was accountable, we’d have a lot of shitty people running around. Be accountable now. The fact that anyone even felt the need to make this commercial and tell men how to behave is insane. But, here we are.
And painting women as gold digging, lying, slutty drama queens is some text book misogyny.
