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.

You know it’s ridiculous to hear that writers who post fanfic get bashed on.

I mean dude do you realize how hard it is to write a story?

Hell if we didn’t have writers, half of the stuff you like wouldn’t exist.

Writers are fucking talented people god dammit.

They are artists as well.

Fucking Watch this you fucking jackasses. This is JonTron and his response to all the fucking bullshit everyone has been accusing him of. I get so fucking pissed off at all these posts pointing at him and screeching about how awful he is or some shit.

Fuck you. He outright admits he is fallible, and goes on to talk about this shit. He is not Femminist, he is Humanist, like I am. That means he wants equality for everyone regardless of any factor. But he thinks that some of these movements have gone too far off the deep end, which they have.

He’s a no-bullshit kind of guy, and all this stuff has been pretty bullshit for a while now. So, would you kindly stop posting shit about how he’s digging his own grave or how his career is ruined because someone misinterpreted what he meant.

I heard only a little about the whole JonTron drama that happened around but HOLY SHIT

What they just said is what i always wanted to say/write around about the internet and just didn’t know how to put it into words (in English at least). THIS is why i think Jon is super kawaii sugoi ˎ₍•ʚ•₎ˏ
