Do not try to be pretty. You weren’t meant to be pretty; you were meant to burn down the earth and graffiti the sky. Don’t let anyone ever simplify you to just “pretty.”

The secret is not to dream,” she whispered. “The secret is to wake up. Waking up is harder. I have woken up and I am real. I know where I come from and I know where I’m going. You cannot fool me any more. Or touch me. Or anything that is mine.

Quote reblogged from Promiscuous Musings with 4 notes

To learn what we fear is to learn who we are. Horror defines our boundaries and illuminates out souls. In that, it is no different, or less controversial, than humor, and no less intimate than sex. Our rejection or acceptance of a particular type of horror fiction can be as rarefied or kinky as any other phobia or fetish.

And again, like a fairy tale, horror can serve as a liberating or repressive social tool, and it is always an accurate reflection of the social climate of its time and the place where it gets birthed.

Much like fairy tales, there are two facets of horror. One is pro-institution, which is the most reprehensible type of fairy tale: Don’t wander into the woods, and always obey your parents. The other type of fairy tale is completely anarchic and anti-establishment.
— Guillermo del Toro on how horror is inherently political as a genre, Time Magazine (x)

explaining autism

Holy fuck Arthur was on some next level shit

Oh my god

Hello, yes, let’s actually break down this episode shall we?

This episode features not one, but TWO autism spectrum characters (one never appears onscreen, but does play a significant role in the plot of the episode). Both are portrayed as highly intelligent, talented, and worthy of dignity. Both characters are DIAGNOSED Aspies. This is important, because while Carl coincides with the generation of children post-1993 who were diagnosed early in life, the uncle discussed later is an adult, and as such was probably not diagnosed until adulthood. And his diagnosis is accepted as valid, and his opinion is acknowledged.

Furthermore, Carl’s portrayal (while simplified) actually makes an attempt at realism. His autistic behaviors aren’t merely focused on social interaction. He actually has an on-screen meltdown, complete with stimming. And it is acknowledged as A Thing that Happens, without trying to justify why it someone else thinks it SHOULDN’T.

Also, look at the way that George reacts to Carl. He actively pursues a friendship with him, enjoys his company, and isn’t offended when Carl doesn’t reciprocate his social cues. More importantly, George MODIFIES his behavior to make Carl more comfortable. He doesn’t try to come up with reasons why Carl should modify HIS relationship with the world around him. He is eager to teach Carl AND to learn from him.

Finally, this episode centers around a puzzle piece. And while my first reaction was to cringe away with disgust, especially when the piece goes missing (that terminology sounds familiar, doesn’t it?), but here’s the interesting part: by the end of the episode the piece gets located. And as it turns out, it was never actually missing to begin with.

And all of this happened on a kid’s television show about anthropomorphic animals. Now explain to me again how mainstream media can’t handle an autistic character.

I’ve seen the clip that the gifset is based on, but wow, I think I need to watch this whole episode at some point.

I never saw this episode! I wish I had, I’d have probably been diagnosed sooner.

Arthur seems like a really nice show. I was scared of Muffy or whatever her name is though so I wouldn’t watch it as a kid.

I love Arthur. And I didn’t see this until my kids were toddlers (which was about 4 years ago). And I don’t mention it a lot, but this is part of what made me go, “Oh, that makes a lot of sense. Maybe I should look into that a bit more.”
