Some people love how woke many companies are becoming with their ads. Others think it's a blatant tool to get more money--and of course it is, as these are for-profit businesses who only make ads to make more money--but as diversity becomes more mainstream through ads and other media, everyone benefits. Take Harry's latest razor ad.
Not only is it wholesome, cute, funny at times and even tear-jerking, but it features a trans man so casually that you'll miss it if you're not aware it's there. I did the first time. It beautifully normalizes that there are many ways to be a man, and my only wish is that it included more fat men who also need more visibility (as something other than a punchline).
Will I buy from Harry's? Well, if I bought razors, I would, but I don't. My husband plans to buy from them, though, and I hope many others carefully consider the messages companies are sending when they make purchases, too.
Have any ads helped weigh your decision about whether or not to make a purchase? If so, which ones?
