Hell yeah! Their customer base is tired of being lectured to by virtue-signaling SJWs, and spoke with their pocketbooks! I'm proud to say I was among those who contributed to their losses after the stunt they pulled.


I'll never understand why companies choose to take political stances for either side. Businesses exist for one sole reason - to make money, and they have a fiduciary responsibility to their investors. Anytime you mix politics with business, you piss off a segment of your customer base. How hard is it to just focus on making a good product and shut the F up already?!

I've not used Gillette products in several years.  Their current philosophies only reinforce my decisions to not do so... I've tried to avoid Proctor and Gamble for quite some time.  Mostly successful, but they sell a LOT of stuff.  Difficult to cut out everything. I sometimes forget to check...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

Well I stopped using their shaving cream, and I've found a better one. Now I don't come to work looking like I stuck my face in a mad badger cage. I think that's the only thing I used from P&G. It was the only Gillette product I used.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

I have been suspicious of Procter and Gamble ever since I could not figure out what their queer logo was all about fifty years ago.....
