5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

Much better version of the same subject matter I posted earlier.

I keep telling people that angels aren’t cute, fluffy beings, but are really scary as hell.

Maybe they’ll believe me now…

As much as I do love cute, fluffy angels, I agree! I seem to recall the Bible explicitly stating that angels are fucking terrifying. And these capture that so well, in addition to being beautifully done!

Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.

DAMN SON

There is no problem that sass cannot solve

What about in [acting]? Do you feel like you’ve personally felt the sting of sexism? [x]

Fucking hell

it’s like “oh hey Keira, oh I feel so bad for you, have you felt the sting of sexism???”

"oh yeah and please tell me which other actresses you ‘hate’ so that I can write that in some story or something to sell ‘celebrity catfight rumours’ to the public"

Yes. Yes. YES. 

I’m just gonna leave this here, in case anyone thought their fee fees were more important than systematic oppression
