>>
She thought she was kissing Sokka first of all. And right after she says "you can let me drown now"
>>
It was for humor purpose? After all, the bitch was blind.
>>
Intent.

This was a joke, neither are lesbians nor were intended to be.

Korra and Asami hooking up, regardless of wether or not it was last-minute or planned, was poorly executed and hurt the show by putting it in despite the fact there was no good build up to it. If you can't do it right, don't do it at all.
>>
>>77801145
It probably was, Bryke just didn't know how to do it right.
>>
>>77801145
Korra and Asami never even kissed so there's that. There kiss also wasn't funny.

You know it's not like everyone loved Korra's romance sub plots then suddenly hated Korrasami. /co/ wasn't like
"man I loved this contrived stupid as fuck love triangle that adds absolutely fucking nothing! But lesbians are a no no!"
Because all of Korra's romance is shitty.
>>
>>77801145
Its a kiss on the cheek.
How come no one ever mentions that?
>>
>>77801145
Because it was a joke and not an attempt to make up for a crap show with easy media attention.
>>
>>77801388
>implying Bolin trying to smooth over every single chick he talks to was shitty
>>
>>77801388
But everybody loved Korrasami

Until it became real.
>>
>>77802049
Only for the porn. People knew Korra was a fuckup and Asami had the personality of a wet piece of cardboard.
>>
Bugs Bunny used to kiss Yosemite Sam all the time.

This. It made absolutely zero sense.
>>
>>77801228
I can't speak for their eventual hookup, but having just started Korra it's pretty clear that Korra and Asami are hetero love interests with Mako.

They both have to be bisexual or something, because I'm not seeing how they get to that ending.
>>
>>77801145
One was played for laffs and the other was a cheap pandering move to save the ratings of a dying show.
>>
>>77802979
Well, you see, when one woman writes another woman some letters, they have to end up as carpet munchers, don't you know?
>>
>>77803195
I wrote that BEFORE they met, but I'm getting bludgeoned to death with Mako and Korra. She's absolutely jealous of Asami.

Lordy.
>>
>>77801145
Because it wasnt done for "take THAT, straight white people", or, if not done for that reason, it wasnt picked up and presented as for it either.
>>
>>77803452
>"take THAT, straight white people",
Yes, because lesbians only exist to spite straight white people.

Do you actually look at what you're typing?
>>
>>77801145
>joke
>kiss on the cheek
>misguided affection
>>
>>77803863
Are you implying that non-straight/non-white people exist for any other reason than to make life difficult for straight white people?
>>
I don't feel like starting another thread, so forgive me if I just talk about Korra in general:

I'm almost through the first book and it's not terrible. It's not fantastic like The Last Airbender, but it's alright. And I like Korra - she's different enough to be her own person but you can see how she used to be Aang. Or whatever, I'm not sure how reincarnation works in this show.

Shut up, we all know that they exist just for our fetishes and shipping fantasies.

Just wait until you get to book 2. That's when it all goes downhill from then on, then the flaws in book 1 become far more noticeable.

I can only imagine /tv/ posters doing this from now on to think it'd make them look more like him

You know what you have to do now, don't you anon
>>
>>77810683
I don't care to explain
>>
>>77803863
He never implied that you literal retard. Korrasami was pandering to shipfags (this always results in cancer, see Naruto) and if you thought it was poorly written then you're "just seeing it through a hetero lense". This sucked not because it was a lesbian relationship. This sucked because it was made to pander to shipfags and give them an excuse to label people who don't like the show or even just the ending as regressive.
>>
>get Korrasami spoiled on tumblr
>finally see book 4 months later
>all that fucking hype for this

That was it?
Hand holding means they're gay?
I've seen bitches hold hands all the fucking time, it's what bitches do.

I honestly think that the dude on twitter confirmed it as canon SOLELY because of tumblrs reaction to how amazing it was.
