    1. The ending of the last season of Korra has to be the most simple-mindedly, mind-meltingly stupid piece of fan service I have ever seen, and I have watched Queen’s Blade, Strike Witches, and Senran Kagura animes. It’s the perfect example that, for American PC idiots, the one and only reason for the existence of lesbians is so that straight 15-year-old boys can go “OMG! Those two girls are kissing! That’s so totally hot, dude!”

      At least Queen’s Blade is honest and up front about its intentions. It never pretends that it has so many female characters because it has any particularly high regard for women, and it sure-as-hell doesn’t pretend that any girl-on-girl action you’ll find there is intended to be an honest representation of lesbians, their hopes, dreams, hardships, trials and tribulations. When they show a girl touching another girl’s breasts, they’re perfectly open about the fact that the intended audience is 15-year-old boys who are very likely to watch the scene with one hand busy at the time.

      But with Korra, the dishonesty is appalling. If those two characters were lesbians all along, then the writers treated that fact as if it was something that should be hidden from everyone, even from the characters themselves. Or are we supposed to assume that they were straight all along, up until the last 2 minutes of the show, when they conveniently found “the right girl” and both switched teams just in time to spark a million images of fan service after the show was over?

      It’s a perfect example of how female characters are created and used for the sole purpose of pleasing a male audience. Female friendships simply do not exist for this kind of writers. If two women spend more than 10 seconds together and aren’t talking about a male character or providing exposition for the plot, then they are about to start kissing each other, otherwise what would be the point of having them talking to each other in the first place? It’s not like men could possibly care about two women who have a strong, meaningful, emotionally fulfilling friendship that doesn’t involve hot lesbian sex.

      • Sounds like someone’s butthurt that their pairing isn’t canon.

      • Uhh…did you even watch the show? The entire point of Korra’s story was dealing with change…they weren’t “lesbians all along”…they were two people who after spending time with each other developed a strong friendship, and after periods of strength and vulnerability for both where they supported each other, a deeper connection was formed. You can see signs of this all through the show that their relationship was deepening into something more. Would you have been upset if it was Bolin instead gripping Korra’s shoulder when she was in the wheelchair, holding her hand while she was sleeping, or one of the many other scenes hinting at the progressing relationship?
        Deal with it. Accept change.

    2. Tis but a demographic, sex always sells.

      You could always grind it through the Bechdel test since you’re still obviously anal about it

    3. Pretty sure Korra obliterates every conceivable permutation of the Bechdel test. Also, I watched the finale on Nick’s official site, and there was no kiss; S&P wouldn’t allow it.

      I personally found the ending to be a refreshingly positive depiction of bisexuality (yes, it exists, they didn’t just flipflop) with two undeniably heroic characters. I think the two creators of the show can probably give a far better commentary on their reasons for the finale than I can, so here’s their messages on the matter.
