Are you allowed to “like” photos of chametz on Tumblr during Passover?
The Legend of Korra is a show about balance, which means that it is also a show about tension—between tradition and progress, preservation and innovation, nature and society. The ideal it seeks is dynamic equilibrium, not a triumph of one over the other. And that requires both the narrative and the characters to juggle contradictory concepts and feelings that as they seek homeostasis.
Tenzin and Korra’s arc, pro-bending, hell, even Mako’s vacillating, “all or nothing” approach to relationships are legible according to that fundamental theme. This is a world and a set of individuals who at their best should seek balance, not transformation.
As exemplified beautifully by Jinora, who in contrast to Unalaq (the extreme of spirituality) and Varrick (the extreme of technology), balances being spiritually aware and technologically informed.
let’s also note that this isn’t just a running theme in lok, it’s been a running theme since atla - it’s the entire idea behind the avatar and this entire series and will continue to be. don’t try to tell me lok hasn’t organically grown out of atla and continue to uphold the same themes, because it totally has and does. i feel like people often forget that although, yes, atla and lok are both very different, they are also overwhelmingly the same.
Everyone says it’s feminists who hate men… yet all I have seen feminists do is say ‘Men are people who are capable of controlling themselves and must take responsibility for their actions’.
Yet I have seen anti-feminists compare men to sharks, wolves, cars, HIV/AIDS, cancer, serial killers, thieves, pedophiles and kidnappers…
So tell me how saying ‘You are a person. You can control yourself, you need to face criminal charges for criminal acts’ is man hating yet comparing men to all those horrible things is ‘fighting for men’?
Because correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t that seem a little backwards?
People talk about the newer Disney movies having really strong female characters but what about the older movies? Like Megara was a badass. She was my role model as a kid.
Megara was awesome.
Is it just me, or are there people who care more about the accurate portrayal of vampires than the accurate portrayal of minorities?
So tonight is the first night of Passover, and for the last few days I’ve been doing some internet research on Kitniyot and all the debate surrounding whether foods such as corn and legumes are kosher for Passover. As a reform Jew, I never knew what a contentious topic it was. My family often did not observe Passover at all, much less the stricter interpretations of its dietary restrictions. I am Ashkenazi, so this actually relevant to the manner in which I observe Passover. I’ve encountered all manner of opinions, from “the ban on Kitniyot is silly” to “Kitniyot is just as bad as chametz” to “do what you want it’s none of my business”. So, Jewish followers, what do you think? Do you eat Kitniyot on Passover? Should it depend on whether you’re Sephardic or Ashkenazi, or on whether you’re Orthodox, Conservative or Reform?
