“I have a suspicion that someone is trying to recategorize my generosity to ex-girlfriends as something more untoward.”
And yes, I read it. And yes, it's as bad as you think: Full of misstatements (/lies) about the nature of these issues and objectively right-wing framing.
Like so: Democrats are in no way opposed to "any standards." This is just a lie. And a Republican talking point.

November's full moon is the Beaver Moon, so named because this is around the time beavers complete their lodges. Also, it was prime trapping season.

It's something I used to not let myself feel. I had a million excuses.
It's a waste of time and energy
Your life is actually really good, what do you actually have to be angry about
You have no right to be mad about that
These are lies.
Anger, like anything else you feel, is an emotion. You have a right to your emotions.
What you don't have is an excuse or a right to intentionally hurt someone because of those emotions.

So I finally watched that Gillette ad. After all the uproar, I was basically expecting a man to be castrated on-screen with one of the company's own razors
It's a perfectly fine ad. Gillette is trying to make cash money off of the goodwill surrounding the concept of men not being assholes in this day and age. That's their job, and I'm not mad at them for it.
