Katara appreciation time:
- Can we talk about how she learned all her water-bending mostly by herself?
- Can we talk about her never ending ingenuity throughout the series?
- Can we talk about how she is only 13 and was able to defeat both a fire master (Azula) and a water master (Hama)?
- Can we talk about her pity towards the man who killed her mother?
- Can we talk about how she never stopped caring for her friends and family even in the worst situations?Say what you want about Katara, but she is the best role model/friend you could have had in the entire series. She had always kept it together even when she lost her mother and when Aang had his issues.
Honestly, all of my favorite characters from ATLA and Korra are the female characters.
I like the male characters, but the female characters just strike me as so much more interesting, dynamic, and amazing. They have agency and purpose, and its just refreshing as hell to see that in a show.
Can we talk about how she has dark skin and dark, thick hair and how nurturing and talented and determined she is and how much I fucking LOVE this?

This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
^ that literally makes no f****** sense and is in no way a related topic
Also: If you ask if “we need to cut it off”, and they don’t react positively, quickly cut the limb off just to be safe. It may have been infected and infections sometimes take WEEKS to heal properly.
god made you for me.
I took a couple of hours out of my day to be on a panel for Young Author’s Day, an event put on by the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association. I was invited to join by John Lustig, who I feel very lucky to call my friend and mentor. We answered the usual questions about the writing process and how we broke into comics, but I was even more intrigued by the audience. Notice something about them?
Yeah. GIRLS. Very. Young. Girls.
So I asked THEM some questions. “How many of you read comics?”
All hands went up.
"How many of you want to make comics some day?"
Most of the hands went up.
Here’s where it really got interesting. “How many of you BUY comics?”
Only one hand raised. I asked her where she buys her comics. She said, “At the comic book store.”
"Do you have a comic book store you like going to?" I asked.
She hesitated. “It’s complicated.”
That’s 10 year-old speak for “I have to go there to get comics but the store makes me uncomfortable.” The rest of them read webcomics. None of them had heard of Comixology before, but they knew all about it by the time the panel was over. What comic would they like to see most? Minecraft. Only Steve needs to be a girl.
It was a fascinating experience, especially in the wake of this article detailing why girls in the 1980s (like me and one of the moms nodding eagerly in the audience) stopped buying comics for 20 years.
The future of comics is bright indeed.
This is absolutely wonderful.
Since FTM Sub Week started on a Tuesday, here’s another to make the full complement! I said a week, you’re getting a week. :D
This is a great little clip— there’s so much to love! Kisses, some very nice spankies (look at that color bloom!!), lots of Feelin-It face, a little tease, a little shoe worship, and the perpetually hard to find hand-on-throat. Nice!
Oh, this I love.
I’m never going to stop Reblogging this
Oh, the heel gif gets meOh hey its me and Pandora Blake from our Dreams of Spanking shoot!
As a desi who lives in the UK, I jus want to ask a simple question.
Are we ever going to address the fact that Asians living in the west have “western privilege”?
I’m just asking.
Since every discourse I’ve seen talking about “western privilege” is almost always aimed at Black people.
No I know why THAT is.
But can we start talking about western asians and their western privilege?
but the evil niggers!
remember how i tried to bring this up in the Africans vs African Americans debate and how like absolutely NO ONE engaged on this?
like why is it that black folks can carry their western priv with them everywhere they go but 1st generation etc or folks who came to the west for school/have a degree from a western institution have none? are you really trying to tell me that a first generation south asian immigrant with a yale degree from a middle class/upper class family has LESS access to western privilege than a working class black guy who never even left his hometown before he joined the army?
does that mean said black person is incapable of facilitating western imperialism? NO. but speaking *structurally* and in terms of *access to power*, middle class SA immigrant with an ivy league education is NOT worse off than the black serviceman.
but look at me, asking tumblr to analyze power dynamics…….like that’s a thing ppl are willing to do in this space……
E.L. James was writing about the fantasy aspect of BDSM, much of which does involve fantasy of unhealthy power balances, and questionable consent. She’s writing, for adults, about the fantasy, not real life BDSM. And I think adult women can be trusted with fantasy scenarios.
Like, she never claimed she was writing a “How to” book. And the extreme ridicule and even moral panic around it seems kinda shitty to me.
I highly recommend http://pervocracy.blogspot.com.au/ ‘s breakdown of it. It’s not even the BDSM that’s the problem. It’s that it’s NOT BDSM at all, it’s just…very weird
This is what I mean when I say most poor people — at least those who know what it is to be hungry — will share their last can of beans with you if you’re starving, but so many middle-class and rich people won’t give you anything from their full cupboards, always finding excuses. Also, I’ve talked to delivery people and they say the people in my low-income housing project tip better than the rich people up the hill from us. This is a thing.
