Ryan Gosling Thinks The NC-17 Rating For “Blue Valentine” Is Misogynistic

“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.”

Now, I’ve obviously always lusted for The Gos because of his talent and good looks, but when he goes and spouts intelligent, feminist truth like this, there’s a full-on river of love gushing in my panties. Ryan, this is my kind of dirty talk. [Tres Sugar] Keep reading »
