If you have not yet seen the tumblr Feminist Ryan Gosling, crawl out from under the rock you have been living under and click yourself over there. It is awesome.
As Bim Adewunmi observed in a post yesterday at The Guardian,
So why Gosling? It goes beyond looks. He was raised by a single mother to whom he's close, and he waxes lyrical about his female co-stars and ex-girlfriends. Guys love him too – he kissed Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn on the Cannes red carpet, and co-star Steve Carrell says he's "even more attractive on the inside". He loves his dog, is self-deprecatingly funny and recently broke up a street fight in New York. On top of all this, he's a good actor. Basically, he's perfect.
I would also like to say, to the male population of the world, any lines taken directly from the Feminist Ryan Gosling tumblr will work on me. Guaranteed. It also helps if you look like/are Ryan Gosling.
