Sokka once had a sexist attitude (The Water Tribe were traditional with gender roles because it was “the natural order of things”) but after being humbled by Suki and her fellow Kyoshi Warriors, he began to see women as equals and developed a newfound respect for them. 

A++++ Character Development

 OH MAN I CAN GO ON AND ON WITH THIS ONE    # but this is my favorite character arc    # the first five minutes of this show already mentioned the word ‘sexist’    # I knew it was going to be special    # and its a girl calling out her brother that he’s an idiot    # his sexism stems from ignorance    # and the viewers get to understand WHY he was sexist    # he grew up in a environment where the men were warriors    # but he never (and the series never showed) female water tribe warriors    # his father entrusted him to look after the tribe and his sister    # he doesn’t think men are better than women    #but rather he believed there are certain things women at good at (feminine activities like sewing and men are good at (masculine activities    # imagine katara had to go put up with this bullshit    # she calls him out but does he listen? no    # because he’s stubborn and people tend to not listen to their family members    # so he needed someone very special to smack that sexism out his system    # Suki made him a better person    # after being outmatched by this superior warrior    # he HUMBLES himself and took his humiliation an opportunity to learn from someone who is clearly more skilled    # and then he APOLOGIZES his behavior    # again Suki teaches him another lesson when he said ‘I treated you like a girl when I should have treated you like a warrior’

Yeah I mean I couldn’t agree more when it comes to this…that the WORD “SEXIST” APPEARS IN THIS SHOW AT ALL let alone in THE FIRST MINUTE of in-narrative dialogue is exceptional.

I firmly believe that Katara’s instant, prodigious mastery of Waterbending reaffirms this development, as does Sokka’s unerring friendship with the incomparable Toph Beifong.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.

My friend who worked at Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska had as similar story.  Rare fish were disappearing, they suspected theft, and so set up a camera. An octopus was unlocking the top of its tank, walking across the suspended walkway, unlocking the other tank, eating his fill, re-locking the other tank, then re-locking its own tank.

O_O WHAT

sometimes I get really stressed out because my body doesn’t match society’s expectations of beauty and sex appeal

and one night I was complaining about it to my sister and she said

"It’s not very punk rock to meet society’s expectations"

I think she changed my life

You sly bugger. That took me a while.

I have googled my life away. I have read bible verses. I have studied the ohilosophical meaning behind the numbers. I have become a modern Gallup trying to ask people to help me figure this out. What the FUCK does it mean.
