“Women Are Better Than Men”: A Survey of Media Gynocentrism

Last week, in an interview with the Evening Standard, Canadian actor Ryan Gosling, while shilling for his new movie, had this to say:
The Original Evening Standard Article:

The actor also spoke about the unwanted fuss he causes in women and gay men — but added: “It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick.

“I grew up with women so I’ve always been aware of it. When my mother and I walked to the grocery store, men would circle the block in cars. It was very, very scary, especially as a young boy. Very predatory — a hunt.”

Gosling has recently had his second child Amada with Eva Mendes following the birth of daughter Esmeralda 18 months ago.

He said: “I think women are better than men. They are stronger, more evolved. You can tell especially when you have daughters and you see their early stages, they are just leaps and bounds beyond boys immediately.”

Wow, this was a mighty sexist thing to say. Women are better than men. I thought we were all equal and men and women could do the same things and so on and so forth. Surely, someone will pipe up and criticize Ryan Gosling for denigrating half of the human race.

The Huffington Post:

Attention, ladies. Ryan Gosling thinks you’re pretty amazing and don’t you forget it.

In an interview with Evening Standard Magazine, the star of “The Nice Guys” (and the internet’s bae) shared his admiration for women in what might be the most straightforward compliment ever:

“I think women are better than men,” he said. “They are stronger, more evolved.”

Zimbio:

Hey girl, you’re better. That’s all.

In a new interview with ES magazine, Ryan Gosling got real about the role strong women have played in his life.

Acknowledging the near god-like position in which he’s found himself amongst women and gay men, he said he was willing to accept it because, “It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick.”

The Inquisitr:

Ryan Gosling, who is now the head of the household that consists of Eva Mendes and two lovely baby girls, can’t be more feminist. If you thought that he was a feminist during his days before having daughters, when “Hey Girl” memes populated the internet, you should check out what he said in a recent interview.

“I think women are better than men,” he said to Evening Standard.

“I think women are better than men,” he said to Evening Standard.

Us Magazine:

Ryan Gosling has outdone himself. The Nice Guys actor told ES magazine that he believes America needs a female president because he believes “women are better than men.”

“I think [America] needs a woman’s touch. I’ve always liked women more,” said the 35-year-old hunk…

The Daily Mail:

He also discussed the attention his heartthrob status attracts from women and gay men, saying: It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick.

‘I grew up with women so I’ve always been aware of it. When my mother and I walked to the grocery store, men would circle the block in cars. It was very, very scary, especially as a young boy. Very predatory – a hunt.’

Entertainment:

Ryan Gosling has said he is probably ‘49% woman’, while commenting that women are, in his view, better than men.

Incredibly in touch with his feminine side and a staunch supporter of gender equality, the Nice Guys actor said to ES Magazine: “I think women are better than men.

Metro News:

Ryan Gosling has confirmed what we all know about the sexes.

Women are better than men.

Glamour:

As if we could love Ryan Gosling any more, the actor has now gone and made some rather charming comments regarding women.

Speaking to Evening Standard Magazine, Ryan hinted he believes the US is ready for a female President, and in fact needs one:

“I think [America] needs a woman’s touch. I’ve always liked women more,” he continued.

“I was brought up by my mother and older sister. I found my way into dance class. My home life now is mostly women. They are better than us. They make me better.”

Oh Ryan… swoon.

E! News:

Ryan Gosling Gushes About Women

“The Nice Guys” actor loves ladies. He makes a bold statement to “ES Magazine” saying, “I think women are better than men.”

Marie Claire:

Actual Sentence Ryan Gosling Just Said: “Women Are Better Than Men”

​Hey girl, remember when you thought you couldn’t love him more? ​

Ryan recently made the upgrade from #crush to #hero by telling Evening Standard that as unwanted as the female attention he gets is, “it’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick.”

But wait, it gets better, so please ready your slow claps: “I think women are better than men. They are stronger, more evolved.

Ryan Gosling, guys. He just get us, ya know?

Vanity Fair:

Later on, Gosling takes up the banner for females more emphatically. “I think women are better than men. They are stronger, more evolved.” (Why thank you, Ryan Gosling; you’re pretty evolved yourself.)

Mashable:

Ryan Gosling has spoken: girls rule, boys drool.

The actor — perhaps in fear his heartthrob title was in jeopardy — admitted to Evening Standard Magazine that he thinks females are the superior sex.

Yahoo:

Hey, girl (and Matt McGorry) — Ryan Gosling has some thoughts that will cement his throne as the greatest male feminist icon on the internet: Women are better human beings than men.

Cafe Mom:

While discussing growing up in a single-mom household and now living in a female-dominated household, he gave us this swoon-worthy gem:

I think women are better than men.

“Women are better than men.”

Audience cheers.

KHOU:

Hey, girl. Ryan Gosling thinks you’re the superior sex.

While chatting with ES Magazine, the gift from above (Canada) sided with one sex, and it might surprise you.

“I think women are better than men,”

National Post

Feminist Ryan Gosling, evidently, is not just a meme, but real life Ryan Gosling, who not only appreciates women, but correctly believes they are better than men.

The Hollywood Gossip:

In addition to his chiseled physique, his work in numerous acclaimed films, and the fact that he seems like an all-around nice guy, Gosling knows how to say all the right things in interviews.

Case in point: Earlier this week, the Baby Goose told a UK magazine that he believes women are better than men.

That’s the kind of comment that makes people like a celebrity more.

The Hill:

Though he didn’t directly endorse Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, he added that “women are better than men.”
“They are stronger, more evolved,” he said.

Or…they’ll just fall over each to heap uncritical praise on him for denigrating one half of the human race.

I’ve shaken this pretty little Polaroid for you about as hard as I can. For those who can’t see the picture yet, let me just go ahead and tell you what it depicts:

1. Gynocentrism is the official narrative of the Anglosphere.

2. Female supremacism is inherent in feminism.

Gosling’s paean to his delusions on the superiority of women were repeated verbatim pretty much throughout the English-speaking world and no one dared to gainsay him. The females applauded, cheered, swooned, and parroted this nonsense. All pretense of “gender equality” went out of the window, otherwise a man would be just as roundly criticized for claiming that women are superior to men as any number of men have been criticized for professing that men are superior to women. If a man dared to utter anything remotely similar to “men are better than women” the same authors who are lining up to pat Gosling on the back would be calling for the offending man to be unemployed, lynched, and sent into exile.

As several of the above articles mentioned, in order to be a “good” feminist on par with Mr. Gosling, one must accept as inherent truth that “women are better than men.” But I’m confused. Doesn’t this contradict the other (patently false) feminist talking point that “feminism means equality”? So which one is it?

“Women are better than men”? Or, “Feminism means equality”?

If the former is true, then feminism is inherently a sexist ideology. If the latter is true, then feminists should be pillorying Ryan Gosling rather than praising him.
