…while “the female gaze” is attracted by things like a naked, sweaty Chris Evans or Idris Elba, it’s also attracted by things like: men smiling in sweaters, men crying (DON’T LIE TUMBLR), barefoot fragile Sebastian Stan in the rain on Political Animals, men holding babies, men speaking foreign languages, Mark Ruffalo, and a whole bunch of weird stuff on Ao3 that I don’t even wanna get into. And that’s just “the female gaze as it pertains to men.”

This is God’s truth. Tell it like it is!
#yoooo it’s almost like we’re trained to see men as human#where men are only trained to see us as objects#hmmm (x)
Can you imagine a movie in which Sebastian Stan is barefoot crying in the rain, shielding a baby with a sweater while begging in a foreign language for Mark Ruffalo to take him back?
CAN YOU IMAGINE.
#WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME
He could be a mail order husband that shy, bookish scientist Mark Ruffalo purchased from Romania, except when he gets there he barely speaks any English and he’s got a baby in tow and a dead wife and he’s never actually been with a man or thought about men but he is totally willing to try as long as Mark lets them stay. Please, please, she’ll be quiet and won’t disrupt your carefully-ordered scientific studies—she’s only screaming right now because the rain, and because Daddy’s crying.
BUT MAIL ORDER SPOUSES ARE SO UNETHICAL. HOW WOULD OUR GENTLEMAN SCIENTIST CONTRIBUTE TO THAT UNCONSCIONABLE INDUSTRY.
Perhaps a less-aware friend ordered SebStan for him, as a prank or in a ham-handed attempt to help a lonely Ruff out?
(and Ruff is like WHO IS THIS PERSON at first but then he realizes that the screaming is a baby and OMG YOU CAN’T LEAVE A BABY OUT IN THE RAIN COME IN ALREADY AND DRY UP
Ruff’s friend, who may or may not be RDJ, has SO MUCH TO ANSWER FOR)
A drunken Science Bro purchase, yessss, yessss, good. He doesn’t exactly remember it, but there’s his credit card number on the soggy papers. Now that our Gentleman Scientist thinks about it, he can remember Science Bro sending him random pictures in the middle of the night—the night after GS rather disastrously worked up the courage to ask Science Bro if he ever dated guys (it wasn’t a serious infatuation, but they get along whenever SB isn’t drunk, they’re both into science, and neither one of them want children; it’d seemed like a logical-enough match to at least inquire about sexual compatability)—asking him what abtt his 1 he yoir typ? until GS had said yes to one of them, mostly out of embarrassment.
And now, here’s that guy. With a baby. Looking like a drowned rat and holding his shoes in one hand, the glue of which had very clearly come apart in the rain.
(If this doesn’t prove the point of the original quote, I don’t know what does. ;))
This post started off so on point.
