SPOILERS INBOUND! KEEP READING AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
So... That ending to Legend Of Korra, huh? Felt not-as impressive as it could have been, but that is likely the result of their budget being cut. Still kinda neat, considering. The giant robot felt a little silly to me. Made me almost too disbelieved... almost. I'm expecting the next Avatar (if they get a new one, doubt it) is that it takes place in a pseudomodern era. If they can make GIANT ROBOTS now, they should soon have their modern tech next time. I think what REALLY left a mark in all our minds though was the VERY end of the show, which I'm sure is flooding the Internet by now. I think unless you're in denial or a naive child, it was clear that they showed that Korra and Asami are in a relationship, a lesbian relationship! But they're both technically bi, whatever. It's not even "ambiguous," only censorship of LGBT stuff preventing any "real solid" evidence (a kiss or much heavier hints) in a "kid's show," and I'm sure Nick will catch on and either remove evidence from the story, or forcing the creators to never expand, or deny this as if they never were in such a relationship. Nevertheless, I was surprised they even left any such stuff in there. Even if I am somehow getting the wrong message, it's still very suggestive. None of the characters even get as proper send-off as Asami and Korra...
And I approve! jk, jk (or AM I!?)
Regardless of even if this symbolism was a "misread" by all of us or not, I digress. I'm tired of LGBT stuff being censored in shows meant for "everyone" or whatever. It's not just this, I'm just tired that unless it's "adult stuff," and even that, networks have the audacity to pretend like characters on TV can't be in a non-straight relationship or gender. It's the 21st century, and more and more people are being open about, and more places starting to legalize and even accept the LGBT community more. TV needs to move on, even for kids shows. We can't move on if you're going to hold it back.
This is why I'M including stuff like LGBT characters in my thing like it's not a hot topic and only mention it when it's "necessary," because really, being such things don't define a character unless they're revolving themselves around it, but isn't a common thing and it never really comes into normal casual conversations. People are not defined by their gender in real life. Unless, of course, the story revolves around such stuff. We need to just realize that about that stuff.
Unrelated, but still a little annoying. Disabilities. All kinds. All too many times, media either try to avoid it entirely (almost like they're pretending they're not there; similar to LGBT stuff), or make it out as a victim case. Again, in REAL LIFE, we are not "rare" and a lot of the population has some of these disabilities, and they don't automatically make you a sob story. It again doesn't define who you really are and TONS of people with disabilities can function perfectly in normal society, oftentimes without you even knowing!
What I ended up ranting about really is: with things like your appearance, being of a non-straight gender and haven't some sort of disability don't necessarily define our character. Oh, and people should stop pretending these things don't exist, or are really rare occurrences. We can't move on if we pretend they're not there regardless of the controversy. The Sun won't explode if you do.
WOW! I think I worded this all wrong, and it's a huge ass tangent for something like a barely-ambiguous ending of a cartoon. But whatever. Better now than ever.
The REAL point of all this was to also to show my secret love for the Korra x Asami relationship!
