ok a year later and i’m still mad so here’s a post
why couldn’t Tenzin have been a woman why couldn’t Noatak have been a woman why couldn’t Tarrlok have been a woman why couldn’t Tahno have been a woman why is the OWL full of men what if Asami’s father had died instead why did they stuff the narrative full of men who seek to control or intrude on Korra’s life and her space and abuse and harass her why why why why!!
in other news, the gender dynamics in lok are my actual least favorite part of the entire narrative by a long stretch.
the only dude who gets a pass here is Mako because he plays a traditionally female role as a passive love interest being actively pursued, down to his design and fanservice moments, and I appreciate the reversal going on here (and i guess Bolin too, but that’s…. because he does nothing)
mood: tenzin without eyebrows
I drew Korra
