*sees a hot dick irl* wow i wish i could reblog this to my porn account

but the thing is these diapers 1. need to be marketed to a certain specific demographic and 2. need to overcome the immediate negative reaction towards using them. and i realize the whole "no women no pink here only man diapers" theme is way silly but like how else would you market pads to men? and i'm actually asking you, james, how would YOU market pads to men?

i think most gendered marketing is going to fall into this category by default because gendered marketing has to use the language of gender that we currently have and so much of what defines “men” / “for men” is “not women”, thats what makes the diaper ad so entertaining is because the connotations of what it is being applied to (diapers / menstrual pads) reveal so much of how poorly constructed ideas of masculinity in marketing and media are.

like exploring the sites a bit more proper there’s hints of a better advertising & one that could even reach out to the currently faulty & insecure masculinity by just acknowledging like, hey, this is probably embarrassing for you and you’re living life around trying to hide this because you’re basically in denial of the reality of your body (and masculinity is all about that) so like my “ideal” would be to just ditch the entire concept of having to gender / degender the product at all, just focus on what it does (& also avoid the sorta cissexist meanings going on too)

its a pad for incontinence that is made to accommodate the wearer having a penis & can be worn discreetly so you don’t have to discuss your medical condition with people

of course that’s a more reformist take on it which i’m not really interested in, i don’t want to “defend manhood” from men’s own bodies ya know

anyway i watched insidious tonight and it was just ok. i wish horror movies stopped having scenes of old people on couches talking to slightly less old people on armchairs about how they have a demon all up on their shit and heres some theological wording to make it sound legit.

I think it’s a really interesting development here, ah, how self-styled “anti-feminist”/”UGH TUMBLR SJW” types define themselves so heavily against how their perceived enemy takes everything so seriously & aggressively & yet this is their 100% sincere, illogical & highly emotional reaction to me kind of casually noting how goofy Depends attempts to masculinize diapers is.
It’s almost like their disproportionate belligerence is born less out of righteous common sense/frustration with “social justice gone too far” and more out of an aggressive & compulsive defense against any perceived threats to their reactionary ideology.

diapered men in an emotionless black void (side by side comparison)

Depends has been pushing a regendered version of menstrual pads for dudes with incontinence issues and the entire advertisement campaign is based around desperately trying to masculinize diapers & it’s everything you’d expect from that concept and more
