The Most Beautiful Man I’ve Ever Not Met

You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario, which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film. … There is something very distorted about this reality that they’ve created, which is that it is OK to torture women on screen. Any kind of violence towards women in a sexual scenario is fine. But give a woman pleasure? No way. Not a chance. That’s pornography.

Alright so I’ve never been one of those girls who thinks Ryan Gosling is gold (unless he’s presented to me shirtless and then I cannot resist the sparkly perfectness of his -ness) but as Amy Pond says in Doctor Who.

You know when, sometimes you meet someone so beautiful, and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later, they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people, and you meet them and you think, ‘Not bad; they’re okay.’ And then you get to know them, and their face sort of becomes them, like their personality is written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful. Rory’s the most beautiful man I’ve ever met.

And Ryan Gosling just became just about the most beautiful man I’ve ever not met.  In honor of that here are some hot pictures of him.

So thanks Ryan.  That’s what you get for being awesome.  Some serious adoration.
