The commercial is clearly about bullying not fighting. Its clearly about what you say they shouldn't do.



I think making the point about everybody would have made sense if it wasn't a mens product. If they are going to make this kind of commentary in an ad I don't know how it isn't going to be aimed at men. Pandering to "both sides" people just doesn't make sense.
That's the thing, why are they making this commercial to begin with? They aren't trying to better the world they are trying to get people talking about their product.

Also, boys should beat each other up when kids, not systematically bully weaker ones, but have fights. This is what makes us grow up to be real men imo. Otherwise it leads to backstabbing and s*** talking which will lead to far worse scenarios. Boys will, and should be boys to a degree (when it comes to boy-to-boy interactions) or they'll have a hard time when the inevitable semi-fall of the west/world happens.

I think it would be good if as kids get older, they shift away from the roughhousing to something like martial arts, wrestling, or boxing. Maybe a little less Football. I think individual one on one competition is better for developing Individuals; in America we have to much Tribe mentality and all team sports are tried strongly with the group identity of the school.

People have a violent tendency in different ways, but you can bring some structure to it. Hopefully it even helps develop more balanced people.

Haven’t watched the commercial, but would people still be disscusong this if it were smaller adverts? From what I understand, it’s a long commercial touching many topics. So if it were to be split up, into many individual topic/adverts, would it have be such a discussed topic it is now?


As to what Swede said about letting boys fight one another...I’ll just say my mum always told me never to fight anyone cos we couldn’t afford the hospital bills if I were to get hurt, that’s one reason she never allowed me to join a sport, but did to martial arts. I’ll be honest, when ever they’d pair me up with a girl I could never take a swing at them, did throw them off balanced to win though >,<‘ you could say I tried to “Jackie Chan my way out of them”

I also think that if some are not good at competitive athletics, there's plenty of room to express this side in the arts.

It's also good to consider mentoring with people writing certain material and not by shutting it down. This is how you get people like Wes Craven or David Lynch.

I know you saw this, but here it is again.

Heh, I see Truckers in the drivers lounge watching Nascar or Football. I'm not into it.

I was recently at a company meeting at our main terminal just talking to a local driver. I mentioned I moved to Mobile, AL to get away from the snow. Someone else mentioned something football related and the guy said "You must not be happy with Tennessee right now.".

Dude, I just moved here a few months ago. In sports is it expected I should be like "Oh fvck yeah!!! ROLL TIDE Whooo!!".

Now I don't watch much TV, but if I walked into a room and MMA or Boxing was on I'd watch that. I have respect for one vs one sports. I do not understand team sports and having one's identity wrapped up in it.

I don't even like Team Games online.

Well, we got "free" healthcare here, so our moms just let us fight back, it's actually good, we get our money's worth more.

I am old enough to know there is no such thing as free stuff. Someone paid for it. Having paying high tax, maybe slightly less than Sweden, I understand also who are paying.

Can you point to where in the bible that it says to do that? Is it in the same section that says to kill your wife if she's not a virgin?
"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination." Chapter 18 verse 22. "If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."

That comes to mind but again you have to rightly divide what's being said.

No Jesus doesn't want anyone put to death.
