You know what, I’ve been freaking out a little bit. The college page? Where rising freshmen interact with one another? Yeah, I wanted to maintain a low-profile. Exude seriousness and coolness and mystery.
But honestly, that’s not me. And any silly or ridiculous thing I’ve posted or said…well, people are just going to have to deal, because that is me. I’m not going to make apologies for what I think is funny or amazing or cool, because I’m done making apologies for being me. High school had enough of that. And I know that I’ll make some incredible friends—hell, I think I already have—and everything is okay.
I’ve never felt this okay.
You know what I’m getting sick of? People hating on Asami just because of her looks, calling her princess and perfect and all other sorts of adjectives spat out in a derogatory way.
Don’t you realize that by doing this, you’re basically confirming that you judge people based on their looks? And that you’re actually invalidating Korra’s beauty? I’m so through with people slut-shaming girls simply for doing their hair and wearing makeup. Natural is beautiful. Makeup is beautiful. Skinny and curvy and tall and short and brown hair, blonde hair, dark skin, light skin—it’s all beautiful. So stop hating based on appearance, all right? It’s juvenile, it’s anti-feminist, and it’s just plain wrong.
So what if Asami’s gentle, polite, and “prissy”? Korra showed us that badass, athletic tomboys are desirable—but now most of the population seems to think that only Korra’s qualities make up the hottest girls. Hopefully Asami will show us that, even if a girl lacks that badass edge, she can still be incredibly awesome.
Because I’m a girl that is not badass in any way and I need a role model.
I really want to ship Makorra. I’m supposed to ship Makorra. I should ship Makorra.
But I can’t ship Makorra, I can’t. I don’t know why. I mean, I love Korra—she’s one of my favorite Avatar characters yet! But when Mako kissed her back, all I could think is “you’re fucking up you’re fucking up fucking Asami don’t kiss Korra why”. It’s funny, because I see all the time that fans relate to Korra and love her badass nature and strength. But I think that that’s precisely the reason why I can’t ship her with Mako. I don’t relate to Korra. I’m probably more like Asami: polite, nice, reasonable, girly. And I’ve experienced my fair share of guys going off with the sassy athletic girl.
And even if I wasn’t like Asami…thinking about one girl when you’re with another ain’t cool, man. At least stay single while you figure things out.
But on a positive note, I ship Tahno with everything.
