Why I loved Split and hate people who are easily triggered
Look, I know I’m gonna get a whole bunch of hate for this..but quite frankly, I don’t give a shit. I LOVED the movie Split. I am a person who aspires to become a psychiatrist when I get older..and this movie, while I do know that it does not represent ALL who are diagnosed with the disorder DID, it made me even MORE interested in the topic. Things like DID are what MADE ME become interested in psychology. It made me become interested in how the human mind works and what a mystery it truly can be at times.
I want to HELP people like this, I want to help them get through their tough times. I want to understand them, get to know them.
***This post has spoilers to Split..so for those of you who DO want to see it and care about spoilers..do not proceed past this point.***
Now, to me, this was barely a horror film. If anything it was a thriller. I found my heart pounding during scenes where one of the girls would attempt to escape. The ONLY time I felt horrified was when Casey’s uncle started with that ‘come be an animal with me’ bullshit. It was disgusting. It made me physically sick to my stomach and it disturbed me on so many levels. As a matter of fact, it haunts me to this day, that one scene had more of a horrific impact on me than ANY OTHER part of the movie.
Then it briefly delves into Kevin’s backstory, and it explains so much that the descriptions and trailers that you boycotters have been reading and watching doesn’t. When he was younger, his mother would punish him in awful, mentally scarring ways when he stepped out of line, hence the 'Dennis’ personality. His other personalities weren’t evil..they were normal people. Like Barry, for example, he loved fashion, designing clothes is his passion. Another one seems to be a scholar. Jade is a woman, very sassy, but seems to be that person you would always want as a friend. It made me sympathize with him. Made me love his character even more. I was not scared of him, I did not view him as the bad guy. Neither did my friend who went with us to see this movie. And before you claim that I did not see him this way due to my love of psychology, my friend who also did not see him this way isn’t interested in the human mind. She isn’t interested in becoming a psychiatrist like I am. We both viewed the uncle as the most villainous character, believe it or not. We felt awful for Casey having to go through that at such a young age. NO ONE should have to suffer such a trauma. What’s worse is that she was stuck with him after her dad died..and I have the sneaking suspicion that he found out what his brother had been doing and THAT had caused him to have the heart attack.
Kevin’s disorder did NOT give him superpowers. He was born with them. This movie takes place in the same realm of 'Unbreakable.’ A superhero movie. Kevin merely buried these powers deep down.
In the end, we (my family and I) loved Kevin. We loved his character and we felt bad for him. We were upset about what he had went through. We felt bad for Casey as well. This was an emotional roller coater for me..and I loved every bit of the ride.
People who have not seen the movie, please stop. There is more to Kevin’s character than the two evil personalities, he is an amazing character whom I love dearly.

bbcan twitter/bitch-ass alumni: karen is the DEVIL she burned my crops she caused the famine she murdered my family
me, an intellectual: karen is reacting appropriately because production fucked her over with family videos that had NOTHING to do with the game and william only had that LITERAL power of veto from the TRASH because production wanted to save their pet kevin martin even though it could have been VOID because KAREN FOUND HIM GOING OUT OF THE SECRET TUNNEL FUCK YOU PRODUCTION I FUCKING HATE YOU
i just found ur tumblr and i just like holy shit i thought there is no one shipping riko with kevin but u did and ur art is good too... i know that riko is portrayed as a super sadistic asshole in the novel but heeey it's not his fault growing up like that when no one love him and care for him and treat him not like property. okay sorry for ranting to much. bless u have a nice day
Hello, Anon! Ahaha, I’m still not sure about the ‘shipping’ word and its implications, but I do like to think of them/draw them in a set of two :-)
There is.. a little bit in your message I don’t agree with, um.. Please don’t mind me pointing it out, it’s just my two cents:
Neil tied his running shoes and grabbed his keys. “Andrew, I’m going for a run!” From his boyfriend came only a short, noncommittal reply. He had been busy with a new video game recently. This morning however, they both had read a post about Kevin that had gone viral on social media. ‘Kevin Day found his rebound!’ — Awfully soon after he had just broken up with Thea two weeks ago. Last night someone from his team had tweeted that single line and people went crazy about it. Kevin himself had not commented on it yet and Neil was more than a little curious. He went outside to wait for his friend.
Kevin, as usual, showed up on time for their run. What caught Neil’s eye though was the new furry companion at his side. Black and white with blue eyes, a husky stayed close on Kevin’s heels.
Bringing this up because there are so many feeeeels.
Let’s all appreciate this capture… This is like all of my musical heroes. I’ve just realised that Electronic are my favourite ‘band’ (I know they were a supergroup)!!! I still can’t hold my excitement about them. You have Barney of New Order and Johnny of The Smiths and guests like Neil of Pet Shop Boys, and even the Boys as a duo with Chris too! Not to mention Karl of Kraftwerk. I have such a soft spot for all this. Neil and Chris contributing to 2-3 tracks is quite remarkable. It’s a dream come true, it blows my mind.
Maybe I’m overreacting but the feeeels.
p.s. : And the icing on the cake… they supported Depeche Mode. It makes them even more amazing.
This lion and his sibling were rescued 3 months ago from a lion petting operation in Spain where they were mistreated and malnourished. Now they are being rehabilitated in a park in South Africa with Kevin Richardson, a conservationist well known for forming strong social bonds with the wild lions he works with.
