Holy shit. Holy shit.

They’re actually showing Korra with PTSD. They’re acknowledging that what happened to her was emotionally, physically, and mentally exhausting and that she can’t just bounce back from it right away. They’re showing the people around her showing their support and reminding her that she doesn’t have to be okay. That no one expects her to be better right away.

Korra’s not just the Avatar- she’s a person, and people can’t handle what she went through without damange. The support system Korra has here and the fact that Bryan, Mike, and the crew decided to show the realities of traumatic experiences is incredible. 

I need this post so much.  A coworker of mine also saw the season finale today and we discussed how we felt about it.  While I thought it was fantastic for the above reasons, he blatantly said that Korra should just kill herself because she shows weakness and he thinks the avatar shouldn’t show any sign of weakness.  He thinks that if they show weakness, they should just kill themselves and let someone else be the avatar.  I seriously have never wanted to punch someone in the face more than I wanted to tonight.

During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.

The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.

CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

Nicholas Lord, a Navy sailor since 2008 currently on active duty, is under investigation after threatening to rape a young woman who is a Navy recruit.

The young woman posted a photo of herself on Facebook, captioning it to say she’s proud of how she’s working hard to get in shape for the Navy, and she’s excited to be leaving soon. The photo was shared on the page for her Delayed Entry Program for her fellow Navy recruits.

Nicholas Lord, who is not a current recruit and who has been serving in the Navy since 2008, then commented:

You’ll end up pregnant real soon you fucking wh***. If I could and I knew you, I’d hold you down and rape you.

The next day, Lord gloated about his threat on his Facebook page, updating his status to say he’d been “trolling feminist pages.” In case it needs to be said, the Facebook page for a Navy program is not a “feminist page.” It’s a Navy recruiting page. (x) (x)

I don’t know what the Navy’s punishment system is like, but I hope he gets the worst possible. I hope they investigate his past history in the military, too. If he’s bold enough to outright threaten female recruits, under his own name, on public, Navy-run social media, I seriously doubt he hasn’t harassed and threatened female sailors. He may even have raped them.

Especially given the military’s problem with letting men get away with harassment and rape, they need to severely punish him.

Send it viral, and he will see ramifications.

If you only reblog one thing today I hope it’s this.

signal boost the shit out of this. i wanna see this dickwad’s name everywhere.
