Sokka once had a sexist attitude (The Water Tribe were traditional with gender roles because it was “the natural order of things”) but after being humbled by Suki and her fellow Kyoshi Warriors, he began to see women as equals and developed a newfound respect for them. 

A++++ Character Development

 OH MAN I CAN GO ON AND ON WITH THIS ONE    # but this is my favorite character arc    # the first five minutes of this show already mentioned the word ‘sexist’    # I knew it was going to be special    # and its a girl calling out her brother that he’s an idiot    # his sexism stems from ignorance    # and the viewers get to understand WHY he was sexist    # he grew up in a environment where the men were warriors    # but he never (and the series never showed) female water tribe warriors    # his father entrusted him to look after the tribe and his sister    # he doesn’t think men are better than women    #but rather he believed there are certain things women at good at (feminine activities like sewing and men are good at (masculine activities    # imagine katara had to go put up with this bullshit    # she calls him out but does he listen? no    # because he’s stubborn and people tend to not listen to their family members    # so he needed someone very special to smack that sexism out his system    # Suki made him a better person    # after being outmatched by this superior warrior    # he HUMBLES himself and took his humiliation an opportunity to learn from someone who is clearly more skilled    # and then he APOLOGIZES his behavior    # again Suki teaches him another lesson when he said ‘I treated you like a girl when I should have treated you like a warrior’

Yeah I mean I couldn’t agree more when it comes to this…that the WORD “SEXIST” APPEARS IN THIS SHOW AT ALL let alone in THE FIRST MINUTE of in-narrative dialogue is exceptional.

I firmly believe that Katara’s instant, prodigious mastery of Waterbending reaffirms this development, as does Sokka’s unerring friendship with the incomparable Toph Beifong.

Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.

It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.

And it’s about nice hair and cheesy dance moves, more things we need more of

also it has amanda bynes

I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.

She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)

And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.

This is a REALLY good character analysis of Natasha.

Um, list of heroes:

1) Firefighters

2) Maimed war veterans

3) Captain America

4) Dogs that save little girls from wells.

You know who is NOT on the list? Illegal hackers and leakers of non-consensual nudity.
