The right basically defines masculinity as behavior that is toxic.
Then they claim to be the only ones entitled to act that way.

And when called on it? They claim their opposition is "emasculating them".
And then prove it by throwing the biggest crybaby hissyfit.

American Men, rub some dirt on it and grow the fuck up.

That thing from a few years ago challenging masculinity stereotypes:

But aside from that will the ad help anything?

Systemic change is pretty much never the result of one single act; rather it's the result of hundreds, thousands, or even millions of tiny events, all piling on top of one another, in very much in the same way that time and wind can eventually tear down a mountain.

So yes, it is unlikely that this single ad campaign will have a noticeable individual impact. That, however, is unimportant because as a part of a steady cultural shift, it will change everything eventually.

I agree. I think the majority of adults want to behave in a way that they think their culture accepts. It's good to spread the impression that this is "just what you do" to the masses of people who want to fit in, but maybe wouldn't think deeply on why other people feel that way.

...that said, I do think there will always be an undertow of contrarians who thrive on being the "rebel" bigots/sexists/what not. Not much we can do about that other than to try to minimize the damage they do.
