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.

Another story that brings to light why diversity matters!!! Not just race or sexuality. Movies and books should have characters that are you know…people!

This little story made me tear up *sniff*

Imagine if in “Frozen” when Anna’s heart finally freezes, Elsa, horror struck and filled with grief began to hold her and sing a reprise version of “Do You Want to build a Snowman.”

Cause I feel like it’d go like this:

Elsa:

….Yes I wanna build a snowman….

…And ride our bikes around the halls…

…It’s because I cared for you….

…I hid from you…

…And now you took the fall…..

 

…I wanted to protect you….

…Now look at you…

…Frozen by my own hands….

 

*Pauses looking at her hands*

 

…Yes I wanna build a snowman…

…And play outside in all the snow…

…I wanted just to hold you close….

…Open up my door…

…Because I loved you most…

 

…I was always lonely….

…Not anymore…

…Cause now I can finally see…

 

…I want to build a snowman …

…One more time Anna please……….

*cries*
