Update: “In Golden Globes acceptance speech, Ryan Gosling acknowledges that the shoulders he, and so many working fathers, stand on are primarily those of their wives, before thanking his wife Eva Mendes for all she’s done so he could have that experience.”

“Turns out Feminist Ryan Gosling isn’t just a meme, he’s real.”

Beautiful comment from the often un-beautiful world of internet comments: “I always catch shit from my male coworkers (one in particular) who think it’s cool to bash their wives (whether in jest or not) when I gush over how amazing my wife is. She picks up the extra slack while I’m back in school and working full time with our 8 month old. Watching her with our daughter is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and I thank her every day for the opportunity to pursue my dream.”

And: “That was some serious woman porn right there. As if he wasn’t sexy enough before…swoon!”

Meryl Streep on Trump in powerful Golden Globes speech.

“The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy” ~ Meryl Streep

Well said: “…this instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life because it gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence, and when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”

“Didn’t even have to call Trump by name. Very powerful short speech…”

Meryl Streep, our greatest actress, shows the power of empathy against bullying and lying. It’s heartbreaking—in a good way.

“Please take the time to watch the video clip posted [below]. The original link is a very small, edited clip that does not really capture the magnitude of madam Streep’s beautiful speech. We love you Meryl.”

“We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage” — Meryl Streep
“When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose” — Meryl Streep
