Who the FUCK disrespected my girl Katara. IF SHE WAS JUST A LOVE INTEREST then what did it mean when she was, the best healer, outstanding female water bender, SHE WAS BETTER THAN ALL THE BOYS AT THE NORTHERN WATER TRIBE MATE. tha heck "love interest only"
It’s been so long since I saw ATLA discourse, so I’m gonna add my two cents that female character are and will forever be valid regardless of how they serve the plot. They are not just a love interest when they have a huge impact on the plot and do a lot of things aside from being the main characters love interest. They’re valid when they’re kicking ass, they’re valid when they’re fucking, shitting, peeing etc.,
