I just saw a commercial for “Just for Men” beard dye. The commercial shows a toddler with a beard out with an adult woman on a date. The implication is that the beard dye makes the male young and sexy. The commercial implies suggestiveness of intimacy between the adult female and the toddler. All in the service of males to feel young and sexy. It’s too creepy for me. Plus, there are posts regarding other “Just For Men” commercials that imply pedophilia. What is it with these types of commercials popping up? Every step forward we make is two steps back. Disappointing “Just for Men”
