i… can’t breathe
She looks so good
Ellen, I’m going to need you to cool it.
I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
ABOUTI'm Alice, but everyone calls me Cookie (due an incident, involving me, as a child, and an addiction to those little fuckers). I'm bisexual ; no, I'm not trying to hide my gayness, and I am not confused. I like girls and I like boys, and I'm pretty sure of that. I support all forms of love, even the ones I do not know. I'm agnostic, but I don't mind religous people. I like to meditate, write, and walk my dog in the park. I also love reading (Chris Colfer is my favorite writer), and watching tv shows (doctor who, supernatural, glee, friends and some others). Anyways, message me if you want, if you need anything, I have no social life, so I'm always online ;)
