Toph’s blindness was one of the most excellently handled aspects of AtLA because it wasn’t treated like a disability. So often in shows (and especially children’s animation) disabled characters are limited to apperances in “very special episodes” where the main characters have to learn a lesson that these people are capable “in spite of” their handicaps, like that episode of Kim Possible wherein Kim constantly stumbles over herself around Felix. This approach is often just as insulting as making them the butt of jokes, because it’s patronizing and it limits the amount of roles disabled characters are allowed to have.

Avatar challenged that stereotype with Teo, and then sent a giant middle finger its way by introducing Toph. She’s turned what would otherwise be a disability into an advantage, and she’s not afraid to crack jokes about it. She functions well enough that the other characters often forget that she is blind, but at the same time it’s an integral part of her bending and allows her to be the greatest earthbender ever. It sends a powerful message that having a physical disability does not make you less of a person, and often affords you a unique perspective that the so-called “normal” people never get to experience.

One of the many reasons I love this show.

So because a pseudo-anime show has a character whose blindness is an advantage only because of literally impossible secondary traits, this somehow makes blind people in real life look better?

I sound so selfish. But I want someone to confess their undying love for me. It doesn’t have to be “love”. But how amazing I am. And all the things I’ve wanted to hear. I’m sorry for all the pain I’ve caused people. I guess I was a fool. I’ve been so hurt. And I have my walls up. I don’t know if i’ll ever be able to let them down.

For some reason the things I tend to love are things that people tend to dislike. I don’t know why this is, but I think it would be unfair to propose that I’m a contrarian. I figure that only works for people who go out of their way to like things people like, when that isn’t the case for me. I…

Oh look, Mr. fucking special snowflake here. It’s ok tim, I like things that not a lot of people my age or around me like. We can be special snowflakes together!!!! <3

Okay, it’s a good thing you completely missed the point of my post and just went to the typical reactionary bitterness that I have come to expect of you.

For some reason the things I tend to love are things that people tend to dislike. I don’t know why this is, but I think it would be unfair to propose that I’m a contrarian. I figure that only works for people who go out of their way to like things people like, when that isn’t the case for me. I simply like things, and other people don’t, why not blame other people instead of me? Why is it that the person who just simply doesn’t agree with everyone else is the one who is called out? Is it not better to love than to hate? I have no idea why humans find so much solace in hatred, bandwagoning, and circle jerking.

I actually hate her

beginning to dislike her more and more

she is kind of rounded out herself so where does she even get the right??

but wow what a bitch

And here we have another case of Tumblr being brain dead retarded.

This fine man who had a fat joke made at his expense is Zach Galifianakis. Zach is an actor known for his comedic roles in movies such as the “Hangover” and is also known for his stand-up.

Zach has a comedy show called “Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis” a show where he interviews well known celebrities and “Maintains an awkward and often antagonistic demeanor with his guests, asking them bizarre and inappropriate questions mixed with off-handed non sequiturs on a set that intentionally resembles a low-budget amateur production fit for public-access television.”

So you see Tumblr, Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t actually being a bitch. She was ACTING like a bitch for the sake of comedy which Mr. Galifianakis himself was fully aware of because he wrote the script, thus making fun of himself.

I know the majority of you are fat as hell because you lack the discipline to actually change your lifestyle by cutting out fast food and sugary drinks but you need to learn that in comedy everything is fair game.
