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.

Left-wing Snowflakes Working for Publisher Attempt Censorship Revolt Over New Jordan Peterson Book
They really hate freedom of expression.
Shortly after news broke that individualist author Jordan Peterson would be releasing a new book, far-left staffers at the book’s publisher, Penguin Random House Canada, are attempting a revolt to get the book censored.
VICE has reported on certain staff members throwing tantrums during a recent townhall over Penguin Random House’s intended publication of Peterson’s new book, Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life. The book is scheduled to be released in March 2021.
“He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him,” a LGBT pervert who wants Peterson’s book to be censored said to VICE World News.
Another weakling employee said that “people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.”
“The company since June has been doing all these anti-racist and allyship things and them publishing Peterson’s book completely goes against this. It just makes all of their previous efforts seem completely performative,” the employee said.
The publisher is apparently not folding to the snowflakes and will continue with their plans to publish the book despite their whininess.
“We announced yesterday that we will publish Jordan Peterson’s new book Beyond Order this coming March. Immediately following the announcement, we held a forum and provided a space for our employees to express their views and offer feedback. Our employees have started an anonymous feedback channel, which we fully support. We are open to hearing our employees’ feedback and answering all of their questions. We remain committed to publishing a range of voices and viewpoints,” the statement said.
Big League Politics has reported on how companies are beginning to ignore their left-wing employees and instead make decisions based on market demands:
A contingent of leftist snowflakes working at Spotify are demanding that certain podcast episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience be censored to their ideological demands, or they will strike.
Last week, it was reported that Spotify was undergoing a revolt of sorts because several controversial episodes of the podcast were being published on the platform. An episode featuring Abigail Shrier, author of Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, is particularly offensive to the left-wing snowflakes who hate freedom of speech and love mentally-ill individuals getting their genitals mutilated.
Rogan is already being forced to grovel for making accurate statements on his podcast, such as when he correctly claimed that left-wing terrorists are starting wildfires in places like Portland.
“I said something on the podcast with Douglas Murray about people getting arrested for lighting fires, and I got duped. It’s wrong,” Rogan said in an Instagram post.
Smelling blood in the water, the Spotify leftists are going for the jugular. They are threatening to strike if they cannot exert further ideological control over Rogan’s podcast. According to Digital Music News, New York-based Spotify employees are intending to strike with accompanying pro-censorship protests outside of Spotify’s Manhattan headquarters.
However, they report that Spotify brass is likely willing to stare down these entitled employees, considering the $100 million investment they put into Rogan’s podcast.
“It also appears that Spotify management — including CEO Daniel Ek — has a limited tolerance for the mutiny on deck… The reason for Ek’s pushback is somewhat obvious. Joe Rogan’s entire identity revolves around unfiltered discussion and opinion, and audiences could abandon the podcast if it becomes censored or controlled,” Digital Music News reported.
Companies are beginning to realize that “get woke, go broke” is a truism and adjusting accordingly by ignoring liberal tantrums.
