Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.
It’s funny there are people who are so attached to the original series and it’s funny because when they confront us and they write us critical things like they’ll write us a little fan letter like… Mike and I remember during Avatar how people would be like ‘I don’t like this, and kind of whining about every little thing in the show, and really mad about how a season finale would end, and ‘I can’t believe you’d put the characters through that,’ and now that years have been removed from that, the feedback we get now about Avatar is like, ‘It’s perfect, there is nothing wrong with it, and every moment of it is perfect,’ and I don’t think every moment is perfect, I have tons of problems throughout the series, but I love it and I’m proud of it. And then with Korra they’re nitpicking every little thing and there’s a lot of comparing of Korra to, not just the shows, but comparing the character of Korra to Aang like ‘Aang was such a sweet, gentle soul, and Korra is just, she’s awful!’ …I always think back at New York Comic Con, it was at a point early in Book 2 where Korra was kind of going off the rails, and I remember Mike and the writers really wanted this civil war, she’s gonna take it very personally and it’s gonna cloud her judgement, and she’s not making good decisions. And people really didn’t like it, and I remember being interviewed in New York and they were like, ‘People hate Korra… so why did you do it?’ And I was like wow, and like, Aang was like going on a rampage in the middle of the desert beating people up because someone took his bison.BRYAN KONIETZKO TELLING IT LIKE IT IS, on the Nerdist Writers Panel Podcast (via avatarskorra)
IMPORTANT FERGUSON UPDATE - WATCH THIS VIDEO BEFORE YOUTUBE TAKES IT DOWN
CNN REPORTER Fredricka Whitfield interviews the Store Owner’s Lawyer (from the store that was “”“”“”“robbed”“”“”“”“”“”” by “”“”“”“”“”mike brown”“”“”“”“”“)
As the lawyer begins to explain what really happened, cnn “”“”“loses the feed”“”“”“
this is just insulting. cnn thinks people are stupid enough to think they “lost the feed,” since when does losing a feed use rewind tape sounds and snippets of previous footage of the channel itself?
Fortunately the lawyer already managed to state that the store clerk said that the person in the video was not Michael Brown.
clap your hands if you’re bisexual, asexual, or any other sexual and get erased by both the heterosexual and homosexual community
Don’t blame the gays for fighting for their rights and their visibility.
Blame the culture at large for not having the collective mental capacity to realize that pretty much every single god damn human expression falls on a spectrum and almost no one lies at either extreme.
"The gays" are on your side, believe me. But some of us are tired just trying to get one simple concept across to the people of the world, like that heterosexuality isn’t the only thing there is. Arguing for everyone at once not only wouldn’t communicating anything of value to people who already don’t care because they think it doesn’t affect them, but it would be a disservice to other groups (ace, bi, trans, etc.) to try to communicate their reality for them.
We all need to do our part for equality ourselves, is what I think. We just need consolidated language to communicate effectively the reasons why we are all coming from the same place, the same root oppression (gender binary/identity, patriarchy, heterosexual assumption, male gaze) but different expressions (ace, demi, queer, non-binary, homo-romantic but hetero-sexual, transgendered, transsexual, on and on)
