"How do you balance that self confidence with you know like hey i know what i'm doing and i trust myself to make the right decisions with other people saying you shouldn't be doing it like that or you need to be doing it like this. How do you how. How does that battle look within yourself. This is a matter of building your circle knowing. Who's in your circle and in acknowledging the fact that. Hey there's a lot of things that i know and i'm confident and but there are a lot of things i don't know as well but that's why have my coach. That's why. I have a strength and conditioning coach in the dietitian. All of these other people and you literally app to lean on them but sometimes things just go wrong in two thousand fifteen on a world championship and lex lapped and ended up sprawled on the side of the pit. His tights were ripped up. His elbow was mashed up and usually his guide. Wesley claps when lex is running towards the pit to let him know when it's safe to leap but this time the claps echoed in the stadium or maybe they just got drowned out by the noise of the crowd. Lex thought that he had missed his shot but it turns out he had one more try so he jumped and ended up winning the gold medal. What happened how do you know when you've made a mistake. You know you suggested that you know okay if you found a team member who doesn't who isn't right. How do you deal with. Like i know for myself. I'm terrible at that. I will hold onto a bad decision. Just because it's almost inertia is going to keep me there rather than just being like no. I'm going to stop this now. And i'm going to move forward. Where are you in that continuing. It's hard it's definitely hard. A lot of stems from at least for me is not wanting to know. You don't want to hurt anybody's feelings. Or make them feel like they're inadequate or make them feel as though the work that they've done has been Not as good or not as useful so building up. The courage to be open and honest is very important being vulnerable. That's huge and i think that on a lot of ways to you if you built your circle up in a way that these are individuals who genuinely care for you when you're vulnerable. You put your thoughts in an ideas out there. I think it also gives those around you permission to do the same approach clearly paying off and twenty nineteen at the world paralympics championship in dubai. Likes one yet another gold medal and he broke a seventeen year championship record. Do you have any thoughts on what will replace the role of sport in your life. You've been an athlete a professional athlete for a long time. And it's part of your identity in all aspects of psychological. Well being the physical well-being the public persona the private self. All of those things are bound up within your identity as an athlete. But you know this too shall pass. Yeah so i started a speaker business probably year and a half ago. So i've been doing that. Which has been a lot of fun. A wrote a book last year and that released in april. I think that after. I'm done with sport. I'll certainly continue to roam business and continue to speak. I don't enjoy myself in a eight to five job. And certainly nothing wrong with that. But i think that for the past sixteen seventeen years. I've literally been doing this since i was a teenager. Tell me a bit about myles. Munroe and how you discovered him. Mouths monroe is. He's a lot of things he's a he's a he's a businessman. He's a speaker philanthropist. I stumbled upon him. Because i had a Mrs sherman is someone who i've known since i was three years old. She's basically besides my mom she's been through the entire joining with me in life and she's a transition counselor She's she's pretty phenomenal. And i'll never forget we were. I'm not sure where we were coming from. But whenever i go back home to raleigh north carolina will find time to to meet up or go out to eat. And i wanna say we were sitting in a car and somehow she randomly asked me. Have you ever heard of miles monroe. I'm in my rome or something. Oh man mr said. I should look myles munroe. Let me check this dude out. So i'll get on youtube and immediately. I'm listening to the titles of different videos. When i choose to click on. He had one called like right. People need visions and dreams and is like an hour and a half long in house ministers powerful and here. Of course we're talking about the vision of not exactly foresight or a strategic planning or just an imagining of who you are not physical eyesight not vision in the biological sense right. Yeah literally what is it that you see for your life. Where do you see beyond the horizon. The your ability to see things before they exist. And i remember asking my friend. Is it possible to have a mentor in not actually meeting this person in real life because he died he died not long. You discovered him right. Yeah maybe a year. He died in a in a plane crash and asked when i went on online. That's when i knew the magnitude of of who he was just from other people like barack obama was talking about him and the td jakes of the world and all like just a ton of different people. I'm like wow okay mentioned. He's a pastor right. He's also a speaker so he knows how to use his voice. Can you describe that for me. His voice is very much just ending. When you hear him you listen. He knows how to use his voice as an instrument. He knows when to put more emphasis on certain words he knows when to back off and be a more subtle or soft spoken and it makes the presentation really is almost like an experience. The word vision here as described it does have a double meaning and you said that the first things that really pulled you in you tripped in to his world. Use the word vision. Do you think that was an important aspect of how how you related to him. So for example if he used the word dreams or possible selves. Do you think that that would have been as much of a resonance for you. The video that really drew me to him you know. He talks about vision any talks. About how if it's something that you you really believe in than knew that visions should guide your actions daily. That's what really caused me to gravitate towards him and say that because when i had lost my sight. Nfl isolated in outside of quote unquote normalcy. If you will the one thing that bridge that gap in brought me back to reality is that everything centers around vision you. You create a plan. A strategy work relentlessly to bring that into fruition and again he just breaks down and makes it so simple in in especially using example of athletics. I want to win a gold medal so it just makes sense to have that discipline to go down to train every day having that discipline the eat the appropriate things to make sure that you're staying nourished or replenish than allowing your muscles to to have the right things.

"Went blind. It was a matter of me becoming comfortable again with with moving around. And i have my mom and a number of individuals who helped me to regain their confidence to get back out there and run and jump and roll around in the grass and all of those things mom. She was never the type of person where fouls doing flips outside than she was a sign. You need stop that she would in a lotta ways encouraged and say. Hey there you go keep working. Keep exploring. keep discovering in. Now i say keep learning learning about yourself about your environment. I mean i'm thinking about right now. The neighborhood where. I grew up the neighborhood that i was last able to see. If we were to go back there right now i will be able to take you on a firsthand best tour of the neighborhood assuming that nothing has changed out be able to show you absolutely everything because data environment. That neighborhood is seared into my mind. I remember where the three steps were that led to the sidewalk to our house. Our member like the five or six steps that it took to get up to the actual front door. I remember what the apartment looks like. There was alleged in front of our -partment building that led to a the small grassy area. I will be able to take you through all of those scenes. Those events those places in it's like never has left in. So as i move through life right now places that i am very familiar with. I have vivid images of those places in things in my mind which allows me to be able to to move and navigate very freely. Because i have this vision in that allows me to just be very confident and bold and intentional in my actions the movement so when you talk about sport and being introduced to long jump something that out out of all of the sports is like wow okay. The blind guy chooses to run as fast as he can throw himself in the air. Like wow you think about that type of sport. I've used those same skills that i learned at an early age tapping into my my spatial awareness and appropriate sanction. Growing up lex loved sports especially basketball. He would listen to games on the radio. And he would dream of leaping. Michael jordan bud is life as a student. Athlete found him by accident one day when he was fourteen he and his classmates had to a standing long jump as part of a fitness test and he beat everybody. This feeling was invigorating. He actually beat his classmates who could see so he joined the school track team. Two years after he graduated from high school lex took part in his first international event in quebec in canada throughout his training he was supported by a loyal coach and a trustworthy team they became is is years. They were his visual scratch pad. They helped him to see what was around him. In an international arena when there are thousands of people watching and screaming from the stands. I have my coach or my guide who they give me that same type of layout of what the environment is. How long runway is how wide it is where the take off point is how far the take off. Point is actually away from the sampit. How long the sampit is how wide this amp it is in. We're essentially going through a lot of the same steps. That i would go through as a child and it again creates this visual this image inside of my mind so that i feel comfortable. I feel confident in. I'm able to be incredibly intentional in my action in that space because a lot of ways it can actually see what's going on. You are literally just pouting. You're going faster than most people can actually run frankly. Can you recall what that what the feeling is when you were doing that. Or when i suppose more likely when you did it for the first time and you realized no harm would come and it was like well duh. This is what i'm gonna do. This feels amazing. The feeling was as you can imagine the first portion of that is you. Try for the first time. This is scary yoga a little bit of trust that you're trying to work through in terms of trusting the person who's clapping yelling for you and then there's that layer of trust at that deals with you. You actually getting to the point where you can trust yourself at once. I got to the point where i was super comfortable house like all this. This is fun. This is what i wanna do. It transformed into a a freedom of sorts. It was something that i could do. I realized that i was good at it. And there was no one in the world who who could tell me that you're not able to do this. That confidence lex rack up a number of big wins over the next few years and by two thousand eleven he was also triple jumping. He won the bronze medal for it at the ipc athletics world championships in christchurch in new zealand and later that year at another championship meet in mesa arizona. He won the gold medal for the long jump and set a new world record. In the course of all of this lex became the first blind athlete to ever long jump beyond the twenty two foot barrier. I knew that i had built confidence in my mind that listen. It really doesn't matter what anyone else says. I know that this is what i can do. Who cares what the other people may say. I'm going to go out here and prove you wrong. But i think more than anything. I'm going to prove myself right. Like i know what i'm capable of doing. I have an image of myself that you're not going to ruin that for me because i. This is who i knew i am. This is who i know. I can be the year. Twenty twelve really tested lexus confidence. He was injured a couple of weeks just before a crucial element in canada. It was his first significant injury but he managed to overcome his doubts and he won a silver medal in the paralympic games in london in england the next year he won another gold medal at the world. Championships in lille in france by gravity is not a law nature. But when you think about people's expectations in how they view you in the biases and things like that. That's the gravitational pull figuratively speaking in. When i'm jumping there's no one's holding me down. No one's pulling back i'm soaring over.

My mom is visually impaired also I experienced site loss at an early age. I had actually come home from school and that night. That's when i started noticing that i was i was losing my sight randomly out of the blue. How we. I was at that particular time house seven. Just a little fella. Do you remember what it was that you can. I don't know what the nature of your site loss. And the sort of degeneration how quickly it happened or even sort of what it looked like it was lights are blurry hearts reflection in the mirror. Things were looking faint will blurry there were a lot of ways kind of disfigured a little bit and the next day we went to the doctor and After an examination the said i needed to have an emergency operation because all suffering from retinal detachments. I've heard stories of retinal detachments and how terrifying they are just simply because you know it happened so fast and it's painless isn't it. It's not painful. Experience guests a total like a flip at a light switch. Will everything looks fine. One minute in a few minutes later man. This is totally different. Once you noticed it was it back and forth. It was a gradual decrease. So i wanna say from that point up until i was basically like eight years old over the next year. I had ten operations to try to fix the issue in it was go in everything would be fine. The operation seem successful. I will be able to see for three or four weeks or so. And after that time i we'll get blurry again and each time it will get worse than time before in terms of excruciating. I think the first one two three four maybe operations.

And then you get to the latter part of the ten eight nine ten in. I think that i had subconsciously. Gotten to the point.

Survey dot com slash H. E H O L D. Thanks for your help. Hey, this episode is a little bit different from what we typically do on household name. It's a collaboration with another Stitcher podcast called unladylike, which you should go. Check out. For years, the slogan for Gillette razors has been the best. A man can get. You're looking you. There's this one ad from nine hundred eighty nine that shows clean-shaven men playing baseball killing it on Wall Street getting the girl and showing their sons how to save. The last January Gillette ran a very different at this one showed two kinds of men men who harassed bullied immense splaine their way around the world and manage took a stand against all that making the same old excuses will be boys was boys. Shaving has always been about gender and gender roles. Beauty standards masculinity and femininity, and you know, who has a lot to say about all that Carolina urban. We are probably a little bit over excited to talk about armpits with you today. And Kristen conger, we have so many so many razor facts. Hashtag razor facts. They're the host of the unladylike podcasts, which as they say on their show is about what happens when women break the rules and they've been thinking about Gillette since they were teenagers. So Caroline, you mentioned that your mom bought you a pack of Gillette daisy raised areas milestone and milestone, listen as twelve year old me would have been super jealous because I think we just had some kind of like cheapo generic razors. When I was very brand aware of that even at twelve I knew that we were using the off brand razors. I still remember those first Venus commercials that were like all these women coming out singing like I'm you'll. No, so many leg which had nothing to do. I thought with shaving. So this was was the brand and beauty routine that we grew up with and I feel like it was really ingrained almost in our daily lives. Carolina and Kristen always just assume that razor companies like Gillette marketed, the expectation that women should be hairless. Like, thanks to them. Women have to shave in another of us are strangers to the conversation around beauty standards and cultural expectations. And I gotta say as a feminist researcher who I will say uses exclusively Gillette products kind of accidentally. I assumed that the pressure had arisen out of like Gillette's advertising campaigns over the years. But it turns out a lot of assumptions we had about Gillette were wrong. From business insider in Stitcher. This household. France, you know, stories you, I'm Dan, Bob. Donald. Today. Gillette in the story of why we shave shaving for men is simple, shaving his manly. Not shaving is also Manley shaving for women. Now, that's complicated. Is it oppressive is liberating is it both? And what is Gillette have to do with all that Kristen conger and Carolina urban are here to investigate? Stay with us. So our first question, why do women shave before looking into it? Kristen carolina. And I had all kind of assumed it was because razor companies just dupe them into doing it like we figure Gillette, invented the norm of women's hair removal Justice razors. But it turns out that's not only wrong. It's so very wrong because body hair removal is an ancient cross cultural practice and women in particular have been body hair. Shamed for eons. So if we rewind to ancient Roman poet of it he was body shaming women two thousand years ago. Telling us quote that no rude goat should find his way beneath your arms and your legs be not rough with bristling hair. I mean, Ahmed come on come on out since just leg hair. God there's old poets so judgy. What a bit fast forward a couple thousand years in the shaming went beyond poets, doctors and dermatologists, actually, pathologist body hair. So in the eighteen seventies, the American dermatological society, invented this condition. They called hypertrichosis or excess body hair and really described it as sort of lady affliction a disagreeable abnormality. They called it of masculine hair growth. What do you think was the meeting where this dermatological society was like all right time for a new affliction? I honestly like that. It's like funny. But that's kind of also how we assumed that stuff was going down, whether it was with the dermatological society or with companies, and advertisers. We just assume that a lot of these things are invented to make money, and it's not that. That's not true. It's just that what we're trying to get at is that so much of this body. Here's shame body hearing, Ziobro frankly predates Gillette. You

"Podcast is brought to you by knowledge award. Gillett release. They knew one minute forty eight second commercial on Twitter recently. They got a lot of people talking the ad tackles the issue of what the referred to as toxic masculinity, including bullying, Sex's, talk and violence, linking them to their famous. Tagline? The best man can get. It's the latest example of a brand taking on social issues of the day while the ad is generated some criticism with some men saying they will no longer use their razors. Has this move been an overall win for Gillette joining us on the phone to discuss this right now, Michael Keillor, who's a professor of masculinity. Studies at the university of Calgary in the work Lynn school of education research and also joining his Hank Boyd clinical professor in the marketing department at the university of Maryland Smith school of business. Michael hang thank you both for your time today. My pleasure. Thank you. Great to be here. Thank you. So Michael you work in this area. And look at these types of issues this. Ad comes out in your reaction to it is what I actually quite enthusiastic about the advertisement. I thought activism social activism meets commercialism. I thought this is just one more example of ways in which companies agencies are really reflecting a very different user consumer much, more informed. Consumer and as such I think they're gonna lodging these are current times. And these are current issues of which their consumers are interested in have opinions of. Thank you reaction. I agree wholeheartedly with Michael I think it's wonderful that we've got this progressive era and the progressive tone, saying, let's let's latch onto the issues that really matter to folks, and in the me metoo era, there are companies out there that have strong brands that can definitely move the needle when it comes to something like this. So it's rather bold in terms of how they set up the ad when I think of the best man can get it's always that. I kind of imagery of when you learn to shave. It's usually you're emulating, your father, your father teaches you this is what it means to be a man the best man can get take that slogan and expanded in to just explore its last is it is. I think a great thing. What do you think is the is the impact positively or negatively for Gillette down the road? All go ahead start. I think this is just one example of many that we're going to see and are seeing this is not the first example of a company using this sort of social activism commercialism engagements are things I think the impact and be very positive. I think that, you know, the reaction the negative reaction in particular that seems to be going around social media. And getting a lot of coverage is is a portion of a population men and women who are reacting suggesting that this is an unfair representation or some men are suggesting we get it. We've heard this before we know the message, and how dare a company take the moral high ground that kind of response. I think that Roger will diminish. I think with time we're gonna see more acceptance and aknowledge -ment, which is really interesting because I think that part of what this advertisements points to is historically the ways in which men and masculinity has being performed and part of that is by not being good listeners, by using strategies of aggression to to deal and solve problems in the past. But it is just a snap shop snapshot. And it is historically of you of the Evelyn of masculinity because it does reflect current times in which more men are speaking up and speaking, for example against violence assaults and so forth. Thank your thoughts. I agree. All things must change and keep your brand fresh to keep moving in the right direction. I think. Ran the numbers. They said what's long game here if we look at the audiences of generation Z, and we look at lentils. And what are the thinking this empowerment of women, and it has to dovetail with reigning in this toxic masculinity is the term that we're not using. So it makes sense in that regard. Yes. Always in the short term. They're going to be a few of those stalwart saying, I believe this the old fashioned way in the conservative ways and the sharp gender lines. But that has to give way it's going to be a new day. That's coming. So it's a smart play Gillette to sit down and say, but just see where the where it's all headed. And we want to make sure we position ourselves accordingly. Michael, this this really, I think also goes to kind of the the the culture that we have in amongst us right now, whether it be relationships between parents and their children, what the children are seeing or what their their activities are involved in there, a lot of different pieces to this that that really needs to be looked at it and come together to be able to address this properly. Yeah. I agree completely. And I think I mean, we tossed around the nose toxic. Masculinity fairly liberally more recently. And I think we need to again acknowledged that that that doesn't suggest all men contribute to a particular way of being, but it does point to a dominant narrative about masculinity ways, which boys and men have learned to be men and express masculinity. And you know to that point it is undeniable that the Gillette odd does cop Scher these traditional notions. These stereotypes if you will of being a man, and what that has looked like even their snapshots of commercials from the past and where women are in the kitchen. So the the men who do take exception to this advertisement and are throwing the razors out and up in arms. I think in many ways, ironically. This is yet another opportunity for some men to reflect in the mirror. Look back upon your own narrative of growing up to be a man. And again, these opportunities are not unto themselves. We saw with the politics in the US, and we see it through these advertisements as chances to have a conversation to think back, you know, and to not only think back to think forward about the direction, which we're going in for greater equality to acknowledge different ways of being boys men and is your suggestion around our families to speak with our youth. Both boys and girls because this is not only an advertisement about men and boys. It's an advertisement of power about gender arrangements and the ways that we can actually change these arrangements and be a part. Of that change, both boys and girls men and women because as we know being a man also is grounded in expectations that girls and women have of some men to be certain ways than Hank. I guess moving forward. Then the expectation is that when the opportunity presents itself. The situation presents itself, we may very well see companies like Gillette continued to make and take these stances on these particular issues. I think very much I'd the luxury of standing in the middle of the road and saying I'm not going to take a position, I think the day's gone. And so if you have a really stellar strong ran you've got to take a position and be clear about Nike. I think might be hopefully, the bellwether in terms of where things are headed. They took a chance they said call and capture Nick is making a STAN we are behind this guy. And in the short term, they took it. But in the long run their numbers, and their sales went up accordingly because a lot of people said he IMB. Bodies, what it means to be an American to have a position to believe in something strongly and to stand when others are saying, no, I don't agree with where you stand at this point in time. I think he will be the next Muhammad Ali of his generation, and I think with this Gillette. Ed, the new male or the new man on the horizon. That's where they want to be Michael your thoughts. Yeah. Again agree with Hank anklets and suggest that that the agencies and advertisement companies haven't taken stands, historically. I think is naive. I mean, we need to acknowledge the fact that those some of those advertisements that you actually saw embedded within the Gillette odd. For example, women in the kitchen and men as breadwinners is a stance. It's a reflection of gender range that are part of our narrative along narrative in terms of North American gender. Arrangement. So so that in and of itself are new replicate those images in the past. It is taking a stance. And it is saying something about how we used to think about power and traditional roles, and so now we're actually reflecting and seeing mirrored in different kinds of advertisements shifting understandings of what gender looks like what power looks likes LGBTQ to spirited people are becoming part of the narrative that we see advertisement because agencies are smart, they're savvy, and they know that there's a much more diverse population that they need to reflect in their commercials. But that is you of power Michael is something that I think is important piece to discuss a couple of minutes because we have seen. Unfortunately, a variety of instances within businesses where the use of power by. A man has ended up coming up as a negative and lead to a variety of these situations. There have even been instances probably quite a bit fewer of women that have had this power that have been able to use it to their advantage. Yeah. And and and again power is what the advertiser reflects in terms of the power to be different the power to chart, a different course in terms of speaking up against inequities inequality to to change the course of how we want to raise our boys, for example. And that's the the power to to be all that we can be and to be different. And so for me this again is really provocative advertisements. It's certainly got the conversation going and some have also said oh is. Just just jumping on the bandwagon with Hosh take me to and I would suggest if not just jumping on bandwagon. This is a very smart an intentional opportunity to to reflect realities and for some people to suggest it's it's not accurate again. I would test that we need to think hard about where is backlash coming from. Who are the men and some women who are rejecting this advertisement. I'd have to on that point because you do not tinker with your brand it something that you have to be very strategic about. And when you've looked at the tea leaves and say this direction, we need to go, then you move accordingly. And so yes that you're going to just jump on. This is the new flavor of the month. And we're going to try this. No, you wouldn't do that especially storied brand like Gillette. They would do their homework. I is it surprising Michael that. And there was even a response video that had that has been put out after the after Gillette put out there commercial trying to to push forward some of the issues of the male gender. Is it I guess in this day and age it's not a surprise that video like that would come out. No, you know, we've seen other companies, for example, you know, in bite the public to participate and creating their own advertisements, for example of trucks, and all that they can be sort of thing. And so I think this is again, a reflection of social media of our clients that the people who are looking at these ads and who may buy the product or may not buy the product. So you open yourself up to a dialogue. It's not a one way conversation. So again, I think what Hank was pointed to that Gillette. Would've anticipated this kind of conversation. They may not have anticipated the degree to which it's become international conversation at least in North America. But they knew that this was going to get a reaction and in doing so I don't think that was done, you know, in a misguided kinda manner. It's done in a very powerful man or to to invite participation. So so reaction video is not a surprise again. You you just have to at least I is a masculinity sculler look at who are the men who are rejecting or feeling uncomfortable with this advertisement. And where is there just comfort and oftentimes not to harp on about it goes about it goes back to what we said earlier in terms of the power some men feel threatened by this and they feel threatened by the narrative that it portrays. But again as I said at the beginning, I think this is actually very positive advertisement. And it does reflect in in a much more current perception that masculinity is something that we learn something that we participate in and it's plural that there's multiple ways of being boys and men, and we actually have agencies. So as you watch the advertisement towards the end, you see men as change agents. We don't see, you know, a barrage of images of men who are caring nurturing parenting because that hasn't been the narrative, we see a lot of stereotypes of masculinity, and that points to as we move along in the retirement, the ability to change, and again for me, that's a very positive and reflective of the kinds of power that men and women have to to. Change the the story around gender arrangements. It also going playing off of something Michael said, it also speaks volumes to what is being said in some of these board rooms or in some of these marketing offices of companies, and obviously with with adverbs that are working with some of these companies as well the types of discussions that are going on to to want to address some of the issues that are on the on the forefront of people's minds right now. I absolutely agree. I think it opened the door to something. Let's call it productive masculinity. The idea that we can sort of say you have this power. And if you channel in the right way, you can do these things that affect good change in society. I've thought about there was a response by a manufacturer watch or something more or less saying think of first responders think of folks that are soldiers, sailors, marines, they're out there defending the country that former masculinity is celebrating and should be celebrated. And as we go forward, and we. Think of the next generation of boys as we're raising them to say that here the things he can channel that energy in these areas, and it can be better for all that that is a good thing. And that's definitely something. I'm sure that a lot of these ad agencies. A lot of the marketing departments were large companies are out there saying how do we build that narrative? How do we Bill that's going forward? And it's in keeping with society's at it. Does this also filtered down, do you think to light? Let's just say what you what you are doing in your teachings at the university of Maryland. Oh, absolutely. I think that one of the things that we try to do at the university of Maryland is to say that decision makers come in the room, it is a group effort. So we talk about when guys engaged in men explaining or when they dominated conversation, and sort of push the women to the margin in the group, and the women have really good ideas. That is not good for the organization. So you have to find a form and a way in which everyone feels that our voices valued. And that you listen in the best idea wins. And I think that one of the things that's intriguing if you look at the makeup of class. In the NBA programs and at the undergrad level. You have a strong representation of women key. Now going forward is to make sure that when we have these team projects and these exercises that the women's voices are heard their contributions are something that sell for the entire audience. Michael your thoughts. Yeah. Just as a teacher educator. I mean case, and and this is very much an opportunity for teachers beginning teachers and veteran teachers to use this as a springboard for conversation with students to think about power gender to think about the ways in which we can disrupt or interrupt this notion of boys being boys and for me. I actually have been using it this past week to talk about how you develop lessons. How do you work with students high school students younger students to look at those images and thank them critically and think about. What this tells us as a opportunity to think of our own gendered identities, and how we can the critical educators with students, and and help them to learn differently about the ways in which they're portrayed, and what that story is told them from the past and what it says about where we're going in the future. Again, I hate to harp on about the potential that these kinds of conversations have for again, contributing to a much more progressive discussion and much more thoughtful way for reimagining, masculinity and reimagining gender arrangement. I think Michael into touch on the the issue social media again for a second. But I think it's it's important to note that that social media is being used as a vehicle to get this message out. But also some of the issues that are out there as well are being enhanced. Danced by social media. So we're using the same medium, unfortunately, it's being used on both sides of the fence here. Yes. And and you know, it's I found it interesting have a fifteen year old son. And so when this first came out on social media, I sold it to him and how this conversation with him. And his response was kind of. So what's the issue here? And he said, well, there are some who are reacting very strongly negatively against this. And his response was he thinks that those men must be overly sensitive to how they're being portrayed. And he said this is accurate. And so I thought that was really interesting for him as a fifteen year old boy and he saw nothing wrong. He thought that was the accurate rendering of gender and the ability to be different was kind of a no brainer from from fifteen-year-olds voice. Thank your support of contra. I have a daughter who's nine. And so when I showed it to my daughter, she was looking at it right away. She's road on the bowling, and she's a bully BUSTER. So she thinks that is really wrong. And it's something that should not happen, especially in the school environment. And that's a bit of a paradigm shift as a parent. I remember what like going through school, especially elementary school that Bowie's report of life. You just accept these kids, and they're not gonna like you and you've got to navigate your way through. But it's a new era where we're saying we can take that out of the equation, there shouldn't be this sort of Gress toxic of the masculinity. As far as the ad is captured eight four four Wharton is the number to give us a call eight four four nine four two seven eight six or if you'd like Senator comment via Twitter, either at this radio one thirty two are my Twitter account, which is at Dan Loney? Twenty one the other part, it is again, I I wanna touch on Michael for a second because I know of a friend of mine who has a nine year old daughter and hang dresses to use have a nine year old as well that his nine year old daughter was. Called a a certain derogatory name on the school bus by ten year old boy, and I wanna take this back to the parental side of this recession. If ten year old boy is saying something to a nine year old girl on a bus. Then we're talking about a real culture problem that that needs to be addressed between the parents and the kids themselves. I agree the entire community has to be involved. So the parents of the boys parents of the girl they need to set out and say, what is acceptable order the boundaries. And it's not an easy conversation to have. But it's one we have to have. It's almost as if it's this pushback of that old guard of school saying, well is masculine you. Gotta do these boys will be boys. That's the end. We've got to revisit this. We've got to change it accordingly. If all parties are involved, I think we will get there. Michael your thoughts. Yeah. Again, this is clearly a chance to again reflect on listening to your examples with nine and ten year olds. This is a conversation that we as parents as educators, you know, as agencies commercials, these need to invite participation and to suggest that this kind of gender imbalance and inequities is going to resolve itself. Again is naive. I it will remain as President Trump said at one point that's just locker room talk. And that really does do a disservice to men and women's abilities to to change the course here to redefined kind of relationships both within work and family within our day-to-day that we want to participate in and I was at the women's March on the weekend. And there was an increase in number of boys young up to teenagers and men. Alongside women as allies. And this is largely what the conversation can be. How do we participate as partners to change how we understand gender power and the day to day interactions, and it is no longer a matter as we once thought it was a biology that this is just natural for boys to be aggressive and tries or to aggression notion of biology, dictating our behaviors is being challenged. And this is a good example of showing how we learn these behaviors we learn what's acceptable. And we also learn what locker room talk sounds like like and how it gets maintains or perpetuated gentleman. I have to end it. There were at the top of the hour. Michael. Thank you, hang as well.

I have a feeling it may breakdown along generational lines. And this is why first of all companies like that don't make an ad just for a message. It is all about selling the product, and sometimes there's institutional advertising, which doesn't really talk about the product as much, but it gives you an image of the company, and that's probably where this one falls because Gillette has got some problems right now. They've been hit hard by younger men, not shaving. They don't have clean shaven faces anymore younger men have more beards than ever maybe since the sixties. And so they're finding that the also now that for the first time you've got these direct to consumer affordable razor companies and they're undercutting their prices that companies like Gillette can get for their raises. When you have to buy them in the store. I know that just around me where I'm working. There are some who say, well, I get mine in the mail, and they cost half as much as if I have to go into the local, Safeway and giant grocery stores and buy them there. And so, you know, Gillette's having trouble, and it's younger people that they're having trouble with I guess I want in the opposite direction because I had very short very trim beard for couple of decades. And then as I got older and it began turning white. I thought let get rid of that for a while until it becomes one color or the other. So so that's what this is about.
