Autistic Boy Connects With Guardians Of The Galaxy Hero

If you haven't already seen it plastered all over your Facebook feed, this is the sweet story of a boy's autistic brother who connects with Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy because neither one understands metaphors. Hey -- metaphors are stupid anyways. Similes are BEARABLE, like steamed vegetables. See what I did there? Man, I wish there was a superhero I could relate to. I guess I'd have to say I'm most similar to Batman. "Because you're an orphan?" No, because neither one of us actually has any superpowers.

Thanks to jeff, Ashley and BT, who agree Guardians of the Galaxy is the tits.

    I'm on the spectrum myself, but extremely high functioning [Asperger's] and I had a similar thought watching the movie. I even leaned over to my friend after the metaphor line and said, "He has Asperger's."

    So no one has taken a step back to see that this entire post is a metaphor about metaphors? It is a joke, and no one gets it.

  • Sigh.

    If only the hero for autistic people, who was unable to use or understand metaphors, hadn't somehow decided to call a woman who had not exchanged sex acts for money a whore.

    I found that line kind of odd too. It didn't seem to fit. I wonder if it was a reference to a scene that didn't make the final cut?

    He could also have literally thought she was because that's what she was called by someone else. He may have taken it as fact.

    Whore in this case could also mean selling herself to Thanos in terms of her skill. Which is what was took it to mean.
