Read less, more TV!

A blog about BBC Sherlock. Mostly. Also dogs and whatever else catches my fancy. Make yourself at home.
Got a blog on blogger too! (en español)

Never be afraid to apologize to your child. If you lose your temper and say something in anger that wasn’t meant to be said, apologize. Children need to know that adults can admit when they are wrong.

This is so, so important.

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 :)

You know who else rejected the platonic reading and decided to move forward, recognizing and living with the belief that the romance she was seeing before her eyes was textually present and that she would behave accordingly?
