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.

President Trump Rejects Paying For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Private Security
The royal celebrities will foot the bill.
President Trump made it clear on a Sunday tweet that British royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would have to pay for their own security costs upon moving full-time to the United States, clarifying that they wouldn’t receive federal security under an existing arrangement that covers British royals temporarily visiting the US.
I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom. It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2020
The royal celebrities have distanced themselves from the Queen, apparently viewing themselves as victims of relentless paparazzi and media attention.
Harry and Markle initially moved to Canada after resigning from the royal family, but they’ve recently moved to Hollywood just before the Canadian border was closed to nonessential travel due to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. The elitist couple apparently plans on reinventing themselves as American-style celebrities, and have hired a small army of media consultants and public relations agents to market their image.
When information of their move to Los Angeles became public knowledge, many began to speculate if they’d recieve taxpayer-funded security in a manner akin to British royals visiting the United States on official state vists. President Trump’s Sunday tweet appears to eliminate that possibility.
The thirteen colonies that became the United States rebelled against the yoke of the British monarchy for a reason. President Trump’s decision to cut off the wannabee celebrities from publicly-funded security is a deeply American decision. The UK’s monarchy is one of the wealthiest legacy institutions in the western world, and it would be absurd to imagine that it can’t afford to hire private security for the ‘former’ royals, who are set to fully renounce their royal obligations at the end of the month.
