I'm pretty sure Korra would just smash a big hole in the ground. Because really, If you were an Earth bender you'd be doing that shit all the time.

I'm sorry, I honestly am, but Eww.

I've seen a lot of what I would consider bad and/or unpleasant Avatar art in my image trawling, but that image to me is up there in the top tiers with the Iroh donkey porn. (Not even making that up.)

I'm not trying to knock the sorts of people who are into extreme steroidal musculature paired with oversized physics-defying breasts. I don't care what turns you on personally, that's your deal. But none of that has anything to do with Korra. If you have any respect for her as a character, please don't contort her into something she's not just to fuel your fetish.

Korra is a strong, athletic, honorable, honest, caring, brave, confident, funny, beatiful, attractive, intelligent, creative, adaptible, resiliant young woman. She's one of the strongest female leads in recent years of modern storytelling and an incredible role model. To slap her vague likeness onto a hyper-sexualized fetish object feels insulting to the spirit of the values and qualities she embodies and represents.

If Korra as a character doesn't fit your sexual tastes, please simply look for elsewhere for other characters that do. There's hardly a shortage of them, after all.

I agree with you, and I'm not sorry. That is pretty nasty.

I'm sure you've mentioned Iroh donkey porn previously, and I just found it on facebook so I posted it here for the laughs. It is, as most people pointed out, a korra version of chun li and I agree. Everything exaggerated to the point of... well THAT. To each their own.

This is waaaaaaaay off topic but whenever I look at gcninja's name I always imagine a song going like 'I'm a ninja. I'm a gc ninja.' with the tune of 'hoodie ninja' On other news, my brain is really weird.

Yeah, I don't like that. I don't like that at all.

It's not Korra. Someone just took some traits that are ostensibly hers and slapped them on a pornographic body.

Also, the anatomy suffers from terrible BOOBS 'N' BUTT++ combined with SEXY FEMALE CHARACTER SPINE REMOVAL syndrome.

People virtually never do this to male characters. Why do people seem to do it to EVERY female character? Even female characters who don't flaunt their anatomy like that, ever? :(

To be fair any pair of male characters that either hate or are friends with each other end up in yaoi fanfiction.

Same thing happens with female characters and femslash, though.

Bottom line is that none of it is desirable to hear about or see. I despise when great character chemistry gets ruined because male/female characters get paired together because they're friends or rivals/hate each other. (Or when characters that barely interact at all get paired with each other ...)

Same thing goes for when female and male characters get over-sexualized.

What is annoying with that particular drawing is that Korra is such a rare kind of character to see. She's a female lead who is very strong, independent, passionate, stubborn, and not obsessed with fashion. So seeing someone over-sexualize her is just ... extremely off-putting.

Er... Want to perhaps link to that image and say it contains potential spoilers, rather than post it embedded so we all see it?

Addendum: It also pleases me that the shutter-shades art meme has crossed over into the cosplay.

Because they're ALL OVER YOUR GODDAMN BODY AANG

Though I don't know how she'd know THAT. HMMMmmmmmmm.

Oh my goodness I just got Iroh man. BAD PUN/BEST PUN

BTW lots of spoilers coming out of Comic Con, if you're interested, I'm sure you can find them. They are SPOILERYDELICIOUS.

She can probably sense where his clothing is, but still. Little mistake there :P

By then she must have been told Aang has tattoos on his body. And she probably knows aang is exposed because he is swimming.

Just watched episode 9 again. Something I'm wondering now is, how did Meelo know it was 6 in the morning when picking up the phone? I've never seen a clock in the air temple rooms and he doesn't seem to have time to even look at it (if he can even read a clock to begin with, since he's only 5)
