    Why You Should Boycott Axe Deodorant

    Axe deodorant is poisoning our sense of culture (And our sense of smell).

    1) They sell putrid, ranky-stanky deodorant to poor fools who couldn't recognize a decent scent is if it hit them right in the olfactory bulb. Call me crazy, but I'm not the only one who thinks this stuff is bad mojo. Not only that, but the myriad of chemicals in Axe has even been shown to positively correlate with abnormal hormone levels and sperm damage among adolescents: Exhibit A. That can't be good for anyone.

    2) Axe deodorant's offensiveness isn't just limited to the sense of smell— unabashed sexism runs rampant in their ads. Consider the typical formula in which a young man sprays the malodorous substance on his shirtless body and waits for the attractive women to fly across the room and cling to his perfectly sculpted pecs.

    This is teaching men that women are so primitive, they need only select their mates based on pheromones or scent. Which is something that bacteria, insects, and pigs are shown to do. As my proof, watch the above ad depicting dirty, nearly naked women stampeding and competing their way through forests and plains to reach their Axe’d up “partner," just as a herd of wild animals would do.

    3) Axe assumes the heavier they lay on female objectification, the thicker their teenage audience will spray on the noxious musk. This is offensive to both men and women. That’s right, men! You should be outraged, too! As long has the media keeps selling the female figure, they are making the rude assumption that men are hormone-driven sex fiends. Men, is that what you want to be seen as? Watch this ad that would make any gender studies professor reel with disgust, as two tools men compare their “scores" of how many attractive women give them that “special look" in a single day.

    Men, put down that can of Axe! Women, stay away from the poor idiots who fall for these despicable advertising tactics (Or tell them it’s time to change)! We can make a difference!
