If Feminist Ryan Gosling Played Cards Against Humanity, Because Hey Girl, Why Not?
But that doesn't mean I can't imagine how everyone's favorite Tumblr boyfriend would play the game. He'd scoff at the lower-brow cards like "sexy siamese twins" and "making the penises kiss" and would clearly opt to elevate the form. Then he'd read some bell hooks to me by the fire while massaging my feet and feeding me some fair-trade chocolate ... right? Right?
Now, before you tell me I'm so 2012 for my awesome fantasy, hear me out: Creator Danielle Henderson might have more or less shut down the Feminist Ryan Gosling blog over a year ago, but that doesn't mean the meme isn't still relevant. Just take the new study from the University of Saskatchewan, which actually took the time to prove that men are more likely to agree with feminist statements after looking at Ryan Gosling memes. As AV Club explains:
The graduate students who conducted the study polled 99 students, a third of which were male, showing each group either an unadorned picture of Gosling, a picture from the Feminist Ryan Gosling tumblr, or a picture of the similar, but less politically inclined Gosling-based meme known as “Hey Girl.” The men who viewed the Feminist Ryan Gosling images were up to 10 percent more likely to agree with statements like “men use abortion laws and reproductive technology to control women’s lives“ compared to the other men in the study. (Women’s beliefs remained largely unchanged.)
See? Still. totally. relevant. But because we're probably not going to play Cards Against Humanity with Feminist Ryan Gosling anytime soon, I took the liberty of imaging a few hands he might play. Hey girl, I'm pretty sure he'd be all for it.
Yup, pretty much.
No they ain't.
Probably the latter.
You know he would spoon so hard.
Because bitches get stuff done.
Some intersectional feminism with this hand.
Breastfeeding pics not being censored really needs to be his next cause.
Let's have some more of them in rom coms, shall we?
I want to go to there.
Don't we all.
Gets you every time.
It really does though.
Whatever happens, we'll be fine.
