But we can’t show people of the same gender kissing on-screen. Amazing.
But… It’s an 18 (in the Uk)
How did a TV-14 on a network channel get an 18 rating, they can’t even show a buttcrack for gods sake!
Well, aside from the brutal killings… Ok, yea it couldn’t be a 15. We need more ratings. Why not just use all the ages?

no shade @ anyone but i pray to god that i’m not on tumblr.com in my late 20s/early 30s but instead my career is peaking i’m making bank i got a nice house and i got somebody waiting at home for me god damn it
Remember, kids, when you hit 30, you have to give up all of your hobbies. That peaking career and nice house and romantic partner mean you will have zero time to get online and dick around looking at cat gifs.
A-men. Seeing a character face his abuser, say “you did this to me, and I refuse to blame myself for it any more”, then go off to be the person he chooses to be - that is a resonant arc that I did not expect out of this, or any, show. My friends know that my persona has a certain flexibility, and is rooted in very conscious decisions about who I want to be. Some have heard more of this story than others.
My favourite thing about this, is that he goes back to his father, and holds him accountable for his actions. He’s thought he was in the wrong for years. That it was his fault he lost his honour. To see him come to this understanding that he was a child and his father was the responsible party was amazing.
I can’t even think of any other animated kids shows where the abuser is called out on their abuse as openly and directly as he was in this show. And don’t even start me on the importance of them showing that a male child can be the victim of abuse by a male parent. That’s a demographic that so often gets brushed aside and they get told to “man up” or in this case “act like a Prince”. And Zuko gets to stand up and say “I AM a Prince. You’re the one who was wrong”.
