• Best Bluetooth Speakers 2019 •
Here are the best Bluetooth speakers so far that I’ve tested for this year. I’ve broken them down into different categories, as every speaker will be a little bit different for your taste. Link in bio! #BluetoothSpeakers#Top10#Speakers
If you’ve consumed any popular culture at all, you’ve probably seen some of the brouhaha Gillette’s new ad calling out Toxic Masculinity.
The commercial appealed to men to ‘be better,’ over scenes of boys wrestling at a BBQ, men lewdly whistling and jeering at women, bullies pursuing a boy down the street, and males generally behaving like savages.
Of course, many men took the commercial as a personal affront. My friend Damian Mason accused Gillette of blaming all men for “bad things that 90% of (their) customers have never been guilty of” and predicts “serious razor burn” for the company. .
Mason may be right. Plenty of angry and insulted men are rushing to upload social media posts threatening Gillette and parent company Proctor & Gamble with boycotts and worse for telling them to apologize for being men and for “boys being boys.”
Personally, I think that’s a load of hogwash. If you’d like an erudite and sophisticated response, let me quote Shakespeare and say, that the complainers “…doth protest too much, methinks.” But since Gillette’s ad makes us men look back at how we might have behaved badly when we were younger, I’d prefer to return to a phrase I remember from elementary school, “he who smelt it, dealt it.”
Chances are those who are complaining about Gillette’s campaign were forced to look deep inside themselves and didn’t much like what they saw. To quote my friend Brian Walter, few things are as universally male and personal as looking at your face in mirror in the morning and using a razor. So the company that owns most of those moments is putting out a challenge: Be a better face for male masculinity. What’s more, a father teaching a son to shave is a male rite of passage. Gillette is part of that masculine ritual. Now they are saying…teach your boys something more.
But is that authentic? Please read on…
Gillette isn’t the only symbol of masculinity, toxic or otherwise, having a moment in the bright light of popular culture. By now most of you have either seen the NFL playoff game between the Patriots and Chiefs or at least know how it turned out. Continue reading in comments👇

Amazon's smallest Echo (the Echo Input) is likely the one that makes the most sense for India. It turns any old speaker with an AUX output into a smart Alexa-powered speaker. Support for RCA would have made it even more powerful.
