Meet the Formula One Grid Girls.
Scantily clad, they were – and sometimes still are – known for traipsing about in next-to-nothing during the opening ceremonies of Formula One Racing events. The practice was banned by Formula One’s new owners in 2018, but some individual race organizers bucked those orders and kept the grid girls for their races.
In 2011, razor company Gillette, which this week joined the social justice circus, sponsored the grid girls at Formula One’s Easter Races Zandvoort, an annual event in The Netherlands. Here are some images – strictly for research purposes – of the wonderful ladies of the grid sporting skintight Gillette advertisements.
Now, this reporter is no marketing expert. But it seems that Gillette plastered their logo on the rear-ends of the grid girls, as if they expected men to be ogling at the women. That sounds a bit… Toxically masculine.
In fact, in Gillette’s Monday video about toxic masculinity, the company specifically identified men “checking out” women as the type of behavior that must be stopped, because as it explained, “the boys watching today will be the men of tomorrow.”
So, what has changed between 2011 and today?
Gillette is not suddenly under new ownership. It has been owned by corporate titan Proctor & Gamble since 2005. Rather, corporate sentiments change over time, responding to culture shifts. That is most likely the cause of Gillette’s new advertising schtick.
So what, specifically, was different about American culture in 2011 that is different today? The answer to that question is social justice.
In 2011, there weren’t blue-haired, man-hating “feminist” freaks running amok on college campuses calling for the death of the straight, white male. And that culture, if it existed at all, had certainly not steeped into the mainstream press, where straight, white males are second class citizens. There had been no #MeToo movement, where the sexual deviants in Hollywood got to feel virtuous for slamming the culture of drug and booze fueled rapes and sexual-favors-for-work that they created in the first place. There was no boogeyman in President Donald J. Trump the “racist, sexist, homophobic, misogynist, pig,” who has been unfairly-linked to maltreatment of women, whom it was cool to stand up against.
If you think that Gillette gives a damn about “toxic masculinity,” or the #MeToo movement, or respecting women, you have been fooled.
Gillette cares about making money. And in 2019, when political correctness is reaching its peak and sensitivity is at an all time high, the way to make money is to play along with the social justice trend.
When the era of PC is finally doomed for good, Gillette will be back to slapping their logo on the asses of the skin-tight suits of grid girls.
Count on it.

SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
