According to http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/25/yep-korra-and-asami-went-in-the-spirit-portal-and-probably-kissed.html
there is a scene in the final episode of The Legend of Korra, where Korra and Asami go into some interdimentional portal while holding hands. Now I've never watched the final episode of the final season, but I assume that the people writing the article did, so they know what's in it. Now just holding hands could be interpreted in a romantic way, or non-romantic way, but the above article made it all too clear what way it SHOULD be interpreted. The writers of the article said they talked to the shows creator, and he said that the characters Korra and Asami were intended to be bisexual. I mean WHAT THE ACTUAL CRAP!!!!!!!

Hey show director, this was a KIDS SHOW you were making for goodness sake. Little kids aren't supposed to be introduced to ideas like bisexuality or homosexuality, or for that matter ANY form of sexuality. They are supposed to just be allowed to be kids! Why do you think you needed to make a show for little kids when this kind of topic is only appropriate for teenagers, at the youngest!

....who the hell cares? I think its great to expose kids to the idea of sexuality and acceptance of that at a young age so they arent confused as to what they see in the real world. Besides, the creators made it vague enough that parents could just deny it and say "Theyre just very close friends, theyre holding hands to make sure they dont get lost, its the buddy system!"

They didnt have sex on screen, so calm yourself

Before you are exposed to this kind of thing, you should be at least 13yo. This is a "little kids cartoon". It's meant for like 8yo and 9yo kids. Having this in the Korra cartoon is going to make a LOT OF PEOPLE VERY UPSET.

You know what, I'm almost willing to let Clayton_n argue why this isn't a bad thing for me.


Still it's holding hands, and from what I've seen it's barely enough action between the two for someone to tell whether or not that they are just friends or something more. Hate to say it to all the shippers and crazy folks wishing for this, but still there's still a lot of openness in the writing, so the writers can turn around and say they did a fan service or tell the fans that they're retarded afterwards.


Also this is more of a teenager's show than a "kids" show, so having a little relationship fun isn't that bad or unnecessary. As Maru said, it helps even out the confusion in the real world (in which there's more than plenty to work out).


In other words, get off your high horse and get over it. 'Cause I'm not gonna listen to how a story and/or possible love connection should be written and animated from someone that's known for posting inappropriate pictures on a forum with a large young age group for members. :D

AT LEAST 13YR OLD? FFS this is life! People live with 'that kind of thing' So I would keep your mouth shut. There's no age minimum to be exposed to "that kind of thing" So.... Take your ignorant prejudice comments somewhere else. The world, Anime, and even AF is a very accepting community so I will not tolerate you belitting others and their lifestyles by saying kids who aren't 13 can't see them.

And the producer said that they are supposed to be bisexual. That makes that an official part of the plot. That makes their "shipping" be canon "fact" of the story. So it's no longer open to interpretation.

Freedom of speech only grants you free of repercussion from the United States Government for saying whatever you desire towards the government etc. Freedom of speech also doesn't extend to private companies such as AF, Walmart, Taco Bell, Crunchyroll and others. Therefor we can sensor how we see fit and you can indeed face repercussion for your opinions if we so wish because we do not have to protect or abide by your freedom of speech (not saying we will because I'm no word for AF) but I am saying your freedom of speech.. speech.. means nothing here or anywhere that isn't government or public property basically. Sorry bro.

I still will not tolerate your hate towards a specific group of people and stating that anyone who is under 13 cannot be exposed to them. That is 100% wrong. What about the children who get adopted to gay parents? Are they not allowed to see their parents until they are 13? If you are gay do you need to lock yourself in a closet and not go out incase you run into someone in public who is under 13? No? Exactly

And besides Nick stopped airing Korra a long time ago. You could only view it via online streams. What 8yr kid cares about korra enough to actively go online to try and watch it anyways?

I agree with the others it is not a bad thing. Now if 8yr old kids were out watching Boku No Pico LMAO Terrible thing to watch by the way. Now that Gay's are allowed to marry in almost all of the United States who cares. If the show was aimed towards kids in the first place why are you watching it. Bubble Guppies, Blues Clues those are aimed towards children. I think your rant is irrelevant and lack of thought to be honest. It is a common thing nowadays so just stuff your head into your pillow and scream for a bit and I promise it will feel better.

The creator posted about it being canon on his blog. Not on tv, not on Nick.com, on his blog. So if a parent has an issue with it, again, they can claim they are just close friends. The creators also pitched the idea of Korra and Asami being a couple to Nick, as it was never meant to be endgame, it just sort of happened as they wrote the series. Nick agreed, but gave them limitations. NICK AGREED. Let me repeat that again- NICKELODEON GAVE THEM PERMISSION.

Here's the link to what the creator said. http://mikedimartinostory.com/2014/12/22/korrasami-confirmed/


KORRASAMI CONFIRMED
Now that Korra and Asami’s final moment is out in the world, it seems like an appropriate time to express how I feel about it. I didn’t want to say anything right away so the audience could experience the finale for themselves.

The main themes of the Avatar universe have always revolved around equality, justice, acceptance, tolerance, and balancing differing worldviews. In subtle and maybe not so subtle ways, Avatar and Legend of Korra have dealt with difficult subjects such as genocide, child abuse, deaths of loved ones, and post traumatic stress. I took it as a complement when Joanna Robinson of Vanity Fair called the show subversive. There were times even I was surprised we were able to delve into the really tough stuff on a children’s TV network. While the episodes were never designed to “make a statement”, Bryan and I always strove to treat the more difficult subject matter with the respect and gravity it deserved.

And over the years we’ve heard from numerous fans, in person and online, how Avatar and Korra have influenced their lives for the better or helped them overcome a life struggle or setback. I am always humbled when people share their personal stories with us and I am grateful that my love for telling stories has been able to help people in some small way. So while Avatar and Korra were always meant to be entertaining and engaging tales, this universe and its characters also speak to the deeper humanity in all of us, regardless of age, gender, race, religion, culture, nationality, or sexual orientation.

Our intention with the last scene was to make it as clear as possible that yes, Korra and Asami have romantic feelings for each other. The moment where they enter the spirit portal symbolizes their evolution from being friends to being a couple. Many news outlets, bloggers, and fans picked up on this and didn’t find it ambiguous. For the most part, it seems like the point of the scene was understood and additional commentary wasn’t really needed from Bryan or me. But in case people were still questioning what happened in the last scene, I wanted to make a clear verbal statement to complement the show’s visual one. I get that not everyone will be happy with the way that the show ended. Rarely does a series finale of any show satisfy that show’s fans, so I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the positive articles and posts I’ve seen about Korra’s finale.

I’ve already read some heartwarming and incredible posts about how this moment means so much for the LGBT community. Once again, the incredible outpouring of support for the show humbles me. As Tenzin says, “Life is one big bumpy ride.” And if, by Korra and Asami being a couple, we are able to help smooth out that ride even a tiny bit for some people, I’m proud to do my part, however small it might be. Thanks for reading.


Now if you're wondering how the fans reacted,men and women of all ages, races, etc. Even little girls. They don't seem too upset about it. In fact one of those girls is thanking Jesus for the whole thing.

And it's not like American animation has never done this before. This is just the first day-time cartoon to do it. The Simpsons and Other Fox Shows, Drawn Together, The movie "Strange Frame". Most comic book universes have at least a few gay superheroes these days. Disney has a LIVE ACTION kids show with a lesbian couple in it and has been pushing things with Brave, Frozen, and Maleficent... not to mention Kim Possible... for a while now. My little Pony, which has a 9-1 girl to guy ratio anyway did something similar in Rainbow Rocks involving the background characters Lyra and Bonbon

In Japan they have no problem with this and frankly neither do most of us here.


Anyway would anyone be complaining if it had been Aang and Katara, same dialogue? Same result? Would they say it was ambiguous? No. And the Last Airbender series ended with 2 13 year old kids making out.

It's not unusual for 2 13yos to be romantically attracted to each other, if they are of opposite genders.

There's NOTHING about homosexuality in Kimpossible, Frozen, or Maleficent. You are grasping at straws to support your homosexual agenda.

Also, don't cite what Japan allows on its TV shows regarding morality issues. Their major religion is Budhism, which has basically no restrictions on sexuality. The major religion in the US is Christianity, which DOES have restrictions on sexuality (sexual sins directly mentioned in the Bible include fornication, adultery, and homosexuality). That's not a fair comparison to compare what the US allows on TV versus what Japan allows on TV, because the largest religion in Japan is completely different than the largest religion in the US. The US in general (except for the extreme liberals) is AGAINST homosexuality. The only reason that it appears that most of the country is pro-homosexual is because people with very liberal pro-homosexual views are the people in high places in the news organizations, so TV news stories tend to take a pro-homosexual and pro-gay-marriage viewpoint. The TV news has VERY STRONG liberal bias. It does NOT represent what the majority of average Americans believe.

A majority of americans would believe you are homophobic as well as very very stupid. Please confine your stupidity to your own room and do not bring them on the internet. A diary or something will suffice.

I note you ignored the examples with openly lesbian characters. As for the others, 2 weeks ago you would have claimed that Legend of Korra had no lesbian elements either. You do know how many times they have to redraw every cell to make these things, right?

While I support gay rights and like lesbians, I am not gay and have no agenda.


Actually while many of Christianity's followers are against gay people, God and Jesus never brought it up. In fact there is some evidence that Jesus had at least one lesbian ancestor.
And Japan is largely Christian.
Might I also point out that you seem to be implying that god does not like gay people and yet they exist in defiance of this. That is blasphemy on your part you heretic!

As for the whole "think of the children" BS nobody complained when 10 year old Timmy Turner or Danny Phantom actually kissed girls on screen or when Asami and Korra kissed Mako or when Aang kissed Katara. Or when Eska a teenage girl, who it was later implied shares a bed with her brother, tried to force Bolin to marry her. So why is this, two consenting adult women in a relationship based on mutual love and respect who tried dating a guy they liked and found the relationship wanting, any different?

Do you honestly feel that a couple minutes of seeing a lesbian couple on TV can turn kids gay? Heck of a job instilling your values.

It is not a Christian viewpoint to be accepting of homosexuality. Any Christian who claims to be accepting of homosexuality, has clearly not read the verses in the Bible that describe homosexuality as being a sin. Christians are not supposed to "hate on" people, but they also aren't supposed to treat a sin as if it's ok. Because sin is NOT ok. That is why I can't accept a TV show as ok, if it condones a lifestyle that I as a Christian realize that the Bible condemns as sinful. And I CERTAINLY can't accept such a show as ok, if it is aimed at CHILDREN. Children are the ones we must protect the most from sin.

And the Simpsons aimed at kids though, so that's more excusable. It's a more adult cartoon (I don't mean like hentai, I mean more mature humor, etc, stuff kid's wouldn't get, and in some cases somewhat not kid-friendly).

In fact, most of these on the list are either Japanese anime shows, or if they are western cartoons, they are mostly more mature cartoons (like one is on MTV, which doesn't have kids shows), or they are kids shows based on comics (where said comics aren't exactly kid-friendly) and these cartoons don't reference any LGBT traits of characters that were LGBT in the comics they were based on (for example, in XMen Evolution, Mystique who has a lesbian partner in the comics, in the TV cartoon this same character is just Mystique's best friend, nothing romantic/sexual). In fact, Korra is the ONLY cartoon on the list that was actually a children's cartoon that actually has an officially gay character.

And I CERTAINLY can't accept such a show as ok, if it is aimed at CHILDREN. Children are the ones we must protect the most from sin.

To be honest the Bible tells us to be a lot like Jesus in how we are. So on that note I want you to read a scripture:

MARK 2:14-17 READS:

14 (http://biblehub.com/mark/2-14.htm)As He passed by, He saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting in the tax booth, and He said to him, “Follow Me!” And he got up and followed Him. 15 (http://biblehub.com/mark/2-15.htm)And it happened that He was reclining at the table in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners were dining with Jesus and His disciples; for there were many of them, and they were following Him. 16 (http://biblehub.com/mark/2-16.htm)When the scribes of the Pharisees saw that He was eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they said to His disciples, “Why is He eating and drinking with tax collectors and sinners?” 17 (http://biblehub.com/mark/2-17.htm)And hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”


The Bible does not call us to be hateful or judge others but to invite them into our home so that they can see the love of Christ through us and we can be an example to them, and hope and pray that they will be saved is all. I don't think you can throw Christianity and believe that anyone is a heretic based on them being "OK" with homosexuality. It happens build a bridge and get over it man. Write a letter to your congress if you are really that upset about it.

That's why we're loving this. It's the first of hopefully many to come... like MLP!

Just out of curiosity how many children's cartoon directors have come out and said their characters were 100% straight?

For real. How often does Bugs Bunny dress in drag? A lot.

Okay enough teasing, I'm serious here. The thing is the rest of us know something that we don't even need to put into words, so nobody has explained it to the people who haven't figured it out yet. Allow me.

Yes, cartoons can turn people gay.

NO, it doesn't have to do with gay characters. No more than you've been turned gay when you've seen it yourself. If it worked like that then the fans of Spongebob Squarepants would be the entire gay pride parade all by themselves.

Heck people were saying Korra was a lesbian before the show even aired! We had one pic of her and the information that she was the next Avatar and people immediately shipped her with Yue months before the series started.

See what you have to understand is that while Korra and Asami are probably near the top of the list of animated characters that could turn a girl gay, it has NOTHING to do with the fact that they themselves are a couple. Those two were being shipped while each of them was actually dating Mako in the show. Made no difference.

For example when Ellen came out on her show she did an episode where she ran into an old boyfriend. She told him she was gay and he asked her if he was the one to turn her gay.

Ellen: Not unless you played Catwoman in the old Batman TV series

Now was Catwoman gay? Well maybe but certainly not until after the 90's. The point is that she wore a skin tight outfit, carried a whip, and purred at people while looking darn sexy. Possibly while fighting Batgirl in hand to hand combat.

You see girls will not turn gay because Korra and Asami are dating. They will turn gay because Korra is a mocha skinned beauty with a pretty face, nice boobs, a bare midriff with a six pack, a great personality, and because she's a freaking super hero.

They'll turn gay because Asami is a pale skinned goddess with full red lips, a great body, nice breasts, a tight leather outfit, and a race car.

There are straight women who would give these two a tumble.


The point being that while them being a couple is gravy, the thing that turns girls into lesbians is seeing hot sexy women. Often in cartoons wearing skin tight outfits. Jessica Rabbit is actually married and she's probably turned more girls gay than any actual lesbian cartoon character. You don't get the same reaction with say Patty from the Simpsons do you?

I'm sure it works on some guys too, like when He-man and Thundercats were on TV.

Saying that them actually being gay causes it is kinda crazy.

If gays get married, the institution of marriage will be destroyed! Societies will crumble, rivers will run with blood. Nazis will once again ride on dinosaurs!

You didn't already know this? I thought we were all stringing AnimeDude along.


Seriously guys look at pretty girls and get turned on.
Girls look at hot guys and get turned on.
Some girls look at pretty girls and get turned on.
Some boys look at hot guys and get turned on.
A few of them like ugly butch types too.


That's how it works. That's how cartoons can turn you gay, just like anything else.

The fact that Korra and Asami were both gorgeous from the beginning had boys and girls shipping them from about 3 seconds after Asami first showed up. It had nothing to do with personality, choosing to be gay, or the like. They are attractive. That's it. They're cartoon characters for crying out loud. Completely fictional unless you've got someone dressed up as them.




They have no hormones because they are ink and paint and do not exist in this world. They only do what the men and women who draw and voice them want them to and have no personal interest in turning anyone into anything.


There is video of the voice actors saying they shipped those two from several seasons back.


It takes hours to draw, color and place every cell of an animated show and they have to copy them out multiple times. They do not do these things by accident.

Like when Toph "accidentally" kissed Suki.

Or as Korra would say, "I'm a lesbian! Deal with it!"

Well now that the stupidity as come full circle. I think I'll close this thread and let y'all argue it further in your blogs and fanfics.


Also, VG. Jesus's message to the people was "Love thy neighbor". He never said how. -rimshot and a wink.-
