Recently i have made a thread about having an autistic disney character which kind of spiraled out of control and can’t help but think that this is my fault. Most of you said no and being autistic person myself i guess i took it personally, a little too personally.
So, in light of recent event. I would like to say i’m sorry to those who were a part of that post, especially to you @Rothan_Edentide. I know you were just trying to protect them from being humilated. I just thought it was good idea and i took it a little too far. I just thought that no one is better suited to deal with such a topic more than disney.
But i am putting in end to it right here right now before it gets any worse. So, here is what i am going to do. To show you i bear no ill will, I am going to show you the character i have created and then you can decide for yourself if she is a good role model or not. I am not looking for any validation, all i ask at this point is for you all to hear me out.
Her name is Tera Ferma, she is little daughter of Mother Nature (9 to 12 years of age at best). She has certain qualities that put her on the autistic spectrum. She never goes anywhere without her green blanket and is frigtfully sensitive to loud noises. But, deslite her quirks and her shyness developed by her sheltered upbringing, she is gentle, friendly and kind. She has a strong belief that there is good in everyone.
For most of you, i understand if you don’t want to see her in a movie. I understand if you think she might cross boundaries that you think are not meant to be crossed. All i ask of you is to hear me and forgive me.
