Each main Legend of Korra villain represents a different political ideology.

Even the more minor villains like Varrick (who is not always necessarily a villain) and the Earth Queen represent ideologies as well:  Capitalism and Monarchy, respectively.

"I am Somali. Don’t talk to me about a "failed state" without ever mentioning the legacy of imperialism. Don’t be surprised when I reject any notion of Arab supremacy by speaking my native language and taking ownership over my African lineage. Don’t expect me to be ashamed about inheriting trauma. How excruciating it is to have your history deemed unworthy—reduced to soundbites and misconceptions. The least I can do to cast away the loneliness is by learning about your story and marveling at our similarities. It’s the most empowering of all coping mechanisms. Seriously." - Fadumo Adan

I hate apple so much. I was just trying to update my phone and back up my photos and now its acting crazy.

Selfish people who literally do not give a shit about anyone but themselves make my blood boil.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

We don’t need to replace our history with myths to validate ourselves and our cultures. Keep it real.

I’m still learning to love the parts of me that no one claps for.
