Aang deals with cultural appropriation - (x)

People need to stop reblogging this without the rest of the comic :^)

Part 1: Aang has a negative reaction to people who mistakenly hurt his feelings but had good intentions.

Part 2: Aang calms down and acknowledges that those people’s intentions were good and instead of being upset offers to educate and inform those people and SHARES his culture.

Good message there.

Yeah, these people actually took an interest in the culture however and were dedicating themselves to it, putting their lives at risk and otherwise showing clear willingness to learn. You have people running around donning war bonnets at college frat parties guzzling beer which is blatantly disrespectful to those people’s culture. Nobody owes you them calming down for you shitting all over what’s sacred to them or sharing it or teaching you. Aang made that conscious decision, he’s going to teach them, which doesn’t really undermine the fact that the arrows are only for a master airbender and still very offensive to have and I’m guessing he’s STILL not okay with that. How is it a good message to say that people are obligated to share their culture with people who likely have no respect for it? Regardless, this is a fictional culture, so how about instead of looking for approval through this, you actually listen to the clearly offended people whose culture you are borrowing from? Yeah.

My mom teaches Kindergarten and I went to her classroom a few days ago and saw what appeared to be a small shrine dedicated to Jodie Foster in the corner of the room and I had literally no idea why it was there, so I asked my mom about it and she said it’s where the kids can go to tattle on each other so they don’t always do it to her

So basically my mom tells her little Kindergarteners to tell on each other to a magazine clipping of Jodie Foster that they call Miss Tattle and if you don’t think that’s the funniest thing then get out of my face
