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.

“A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?”
Pointless, really…”Do the stars gaze back?” Now that’s a question.”– Neil Gaiman, Stardust (via kerfufflesensue) Via it was shadles.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
OH SNAP this photoset shows those insane vertical obstacles, look at her go.
I love the annoucer all “ARE YOU NOT?? ENTERTAINED?? LOOK AT THIS!!”

"Do you think we could have been friends too?"
I still don’t understand how this show can have scenes as deep and layered as this, or have stuff like Zuko’s character arc and Sokka’s slow appreciation of how badass women can be, and then be all like “I AM NOT TOPH I AM MELON LOOORRRRD!”
good writing is how
Cuz thats how real life is, too :)
