As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following set of captioned images being shared by an acquaintance from here, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
My Commentary: “TrUsT tHe ScIeNcE!” Nine out of ten doctors agree! You’re a dirty, lazy, uncaring and unlovable woman if you don’t douche, daily, with Lysol!
Mary A.: “In the 1940’s advertisements were used to guilt women into cleaning their vaginas with lysol (yes, lysol) as a way to prevent pregnancy. The ads would tout shaming mantra’s such as, “another marriage shipwrecked”, implying that their refusal to put lysol up their vagina is what caused the relationship to end. Notice, how shaming tactics woven into the advertisements are hinting on corporal disgust, which in turn elicits a sense of humanic shame. Manipulative entities (corporations/governments) will often rely on subliminal repulsion to achieve their results. Meaning, they will try to subvert the human mind into believing if someone doesn’t comply to the mass trend, then they are (on some level) worthy of abandonment or disgust. This is a dangerous threshold to pass because when you subliminally convince one group of humans that the others are in some way, disgusting (biologically contradictory), then you make them appear inhuman and unworthy of love. It goes beyond the realm of psychological advertising into the realm of emotional warfare. The good news is, we have evidence, proof from the past that the implementation of group guilt and group shame only obliterates society into a state of fragmented disconnect. There are enough people waking up right now, psychologically, to the fact that group guilt will not be allowed to be used as a psychological trend to sell or convert the human mind into believing the use of poison is necessary. The remedy to abolishing these manipulative tactics is to heal any wounding you have around guilt while simultaneously denying someone’s attempt to use such guilt as a control mechanism. Just because someone tries to guilt you into putting lysol up your vagina, doesn’t mean you need to give into their manipulative bargain by feeling shameful for not doing so. You have a choice here and you always will. Say no with pride and stand strong in your knowing that putting lysol up your vagina is absolutely unnecessary (if you know what I mean) and your decision to maintain your truth will make you more powerful. Shame has no place in your timeline, and the pervasive use of it will not be permitted. Advertisers, influencers, doctors, friends or family, who use shame as a manipulative tactic to sell you an “answer” are to be highly questioned or simply disbanded. If guilt is what you use to sell your products, your products don’t deserve recognition. If a product, especially a medical product, is actually beneficial, its benefits will naturally sell it, no group-shame needed.”
