Dudes We Love

Let’s salute the men in our lives that aren’t total trash.

 

Aziz Ansari

Aziz’ comedy has taken a decidedly feminist turn over the last year or so, and I fucking love it. There aren’t a ton of male comedians out there who will use their platform to discuss the shit women deal with on a daily basis, but Aziz does and it’s awesome. I’ve written before about his hysterical stand-up bit about creepy dudes, but he has also made some poignant comments recently on the late night shows that are worth noting. He explained to David Letterman (coincidentally, not one of the dudes we love), “If you do believe that men and women have equal rights, and someone asks if you’re a feminist, you have to say yes because that is how words work.” Wow, yes, good.

Beyond stand-up and interview responses, Aziz continues to make women’s issues a centerpiece of his work. This was a prominently featured theme in Master of None. One of my favorite scenes of the entire show was one that depicted a woman’s walk home from a bar versus a man’s. Aziz and his buddy goofed around without a care on their walk, stopping only to help each other avoid dog shit so as to not ruin their shoes. The woman’s walk, on the other hand, featured ominous music, an anticipatory “91…” dialed on her cell phone, and a man who hit on her earlier at the bar now following her home. AZIZ, YOU JUST UNDERSTAND.

Tom Hardy

Okay, first of all, he brings his dogs to red carpet events. Second, Mad Max was a straight fuego movie. Third, some douche at a press conference asked him this:

“As you were reading the script, did you ever think, ‘Why are all these women in here? I thought this was supposed to be a man’s movie!’”

To which he responded:

“No. Not for one minute. That’s kind of obvious.”

Thanks, Tom. You are one smokin’ hot, woke-ass bae and we love you.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Probably the most outspoken male feminist in Hollywood. Has a great face. Solid hyphenated name. Luh u bb.

Justin Trudeau

Okay, I know there are a lot of jokes about people moving to Canada for one reason or another these days, but I’m highkey considering it since this guy took office. Look at the face on this hot-ass feminist Prime Minister! Did you even see the video of him meeting Syrian immigrants at the Toronto airport, giving them winter coats, and telling them they were finally home? I was crying like a Maple Leafs fan baby. Feed me poutine and tell me about your plan to make gender equality a reality in Canada, Justin.

John Legend

*Sigh.* He’s married to probably the greatest human woman alive. He loves Chrissy and his rescued three-legged dog and his BFF Common. John also has the voice of an angel, donates regularly to Planned Parenthood, and sent food trucks to feed protesters during the height of the Black Lives Matter movement. He’s a gem and all of me loves all of him.

Sorry, I just had to find a way to include this.

 

Marshawn Lynch

YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. MARSHAWN MOTHAFUCKIN’ LYNCH.

Sure, he’s not perfect. But it’s my list and I make the rules, and I *love* this man. Marshawn Lynch is a straight up weirdo and his XLIX Superbowl media stunt was hilarious perfection. I will miss watching Marshawn break tackle after tackle in Beast Mode, and I will certainly miss his antics off the field. There’s something so genuinely lovable about this guy, even after his ugly hit and run on my beloved Chippewa Street in Buffalo.

Donald Trump

He calls women dogs and we think dogs are just soooooo cute. Also, he’s sensitive enough to know that the menstrual cycle is really tough on us ladies and that it’s best not to engage in arguments when we have blood coming out of our…..wherever. He says he “loves” and “cherishes” women, and you know straight-talkin’ Donald is always saying what he really thinks, so it must be true. I know I feel loved and cherished when he says Heidi Klum isn’t a 10 anymore and a crowd of fat slobs cheer him on.
