saw this while driving today. you’re welcome supernatural fans.
haha its on a crossroads im emotionally dead inside
it’s not even straight
you know, we’ve all got battle scars.
Man, I know I am being a fucking baby about it, but I just want to know that I haven’t pushed everyone away on this site that I haven’t actually met in person. I feel like a huge fuck up, and I know that I have much bigger things to worry about, but just need a hug.
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.
This is amazing an important. My wife and I reacted the same way to Drax. Seeing a character like us in a superhero movie feels so wonderful. It really means a lot.
If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet, I highly recommend it, especially to aspies. An aspie superhero, intentionally or not, is a very important, very empowering thing :)
This movie needs to be available to purchase already. I want to watch it like 20 times in a row.

I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.
Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.
Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.
This happening to christian KURDS and yezidis
There has also been over 100 girls under the age of 15 that have been raped by ISIS soldiers and have been forced into committing suicide. The Kurdish Christians and Yezedis that are on the run are begging for a quick death. The ISIS leader has threatened to ‘drown our enemies in their own blood’ which includes non-muslim Kurds, Americans and other countries that have offered to help stop this genocide. What the Kurds are going through is completely tragic, and they’ve already been through so much. So many Kurdish peshmerga have been slaughtered, this is going to turn out to be a total massacre….
This is what I feel most strongly about at the moment. There is SO much ignorance amongst my peers who all seem to know nothing about this and it is disgraceful. Even Al Qaeda have disowned ISIS due to their behaviour. Having seen the Images on www.catholic.org I felt physically ill. This HAS to stop.
If you haven’t seen posts on the above then you haven’t been looking because I have seen a bunch. You can simultaneously care about more than one thing and to act as if YOU can’t make post bring attention to this issues since you have a problem with it’s supposed lack of coverage is ridiculous. Can we please stop this “okay x is going on but WHAT ABOUT Y!!!!” Because that’s not how you bring attention in a respectful manner to both issues
