what i think is really awesome here is korra is demonstrating in the same way that ponies and the powerpuffs do that men and women can fucking kick the shit out of you both without being hideously masculine or outrageously girly and everyone can get along without having to make a big fucking deal about it.
like, that's the key point: no big fucking deal about any one character's body (and associated preconceptions with that body) as a consequence of nature = consistently awesome, period.
now that looks complicated only because: people getting their bodies distorted BY THE PLOT? like Zuko? that's fine. make a big deal about it. that's good, because that's the character reacting to a problem.
but if your character starts out as a person, that person can be whoever. don't fucking matter. once you decide fucked up shit happens to them, that's cool.
but if you're a character in a story man or woman or of any background or whatever the fuck ponies or like fucking minecraft people or some bullshit, i don't give a shit about you as a person impacting your ability to be a good fucking character.
