Anonymous asked: Hey do you know who is the earth bender in the avatar: the last air bender opening sequence? I love the show but I can't recognize him

Okay, so let me tell you about this guy.

Originally, Toph’s original character design was a more brutish-muscley guy named Sud. They had thought this from the beginning, but instead they decided to make him a little blind girl because they are awesome like that.

However, they didn’t want to throw away the character so instead of Sud being Aang’s Earthbending Teacher, they made him Roku’s Earthbending Teacher.

Also, it is believed that they liked the character so much that they gave some of his characteristics to Bolin.

So, in a way… That guy in the beginning is Sud, Toph, and Bolin.

That guy is three generations of an Earthbending friend to the Avatar.

I had no idea you were such a good listener.

This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

So yesterday something that perfectly illustrates this happened. I work at a fast food place and this guy comes in at 7am on a Sunday, still probably drunk from the night before, and when I smiled and said goodmorning he said “Did you just say that because you’re being paid to say that?” 

I repressed my urge to sarcastically answer, and said “Nope, I just enjoy saying hi to everyone!” To which he responded, “Oh, so you weren’t flirting with me then.”

Dude, I’m not flirting with your gross 7am-on-a-Sunday-ass, trust me.

My defense mechanism when I’m uncomfortable at work is to smile, so I did that and said “Is there anything I can get you this morning?” to which he responded,

"There, you just smiled! What does that mean?"

At this point I was fed up, so I said, 

"I smile at everyone sir, its just what I do. What can I get you, coffee, a bagel?"

And he said “I’m gonna be watching to see if you smile at everyone. I don’t like it when girls lie to me” and then ordered a coffee and a muffin like he hadn’t just said something at 11 on the “Is this guy a serial rapist” scale (where 0 is ‘no’ and 10 is ‘Yes, run away as fast as you can right now.”).

Then he sat there for another hour and a half, staring at me from his table. When he got up and left he came back to the counter, and said “You do smile at everyone. That’s fucked up.” and walked out.

I can’t even be innocuously polite and pleasant to people at my job (where customer service is the number one thing we are supposed to be focusing on) for fear of this shit happening. What happens if he had decided to wait until my shift was over? 

New Rule: If she’s at work, SHE’S NOT FLIRTING WITH YOU.

I feel like it’s important to add from the side of the conventionally unattractive girl. My presence offends people, heaven forbid I smile. It can be as simple as holding the lobby door open for a neighbor or being stopped at a traffic light and someone will glance in my direction, I’ll glance in theirs, and they’ll forget their manners and pull a grossed-out face or go so far as to wait for the next elevator to avoid standing with me.
I mean that’s offensive enough, but then some of them, guys and girls, have had the nerve to directly tell me they aren’t interested and I’ll tell them that it’s okay, I wasn’t flirting with them, and they’ll breathe a sigh of relief and laugh and tell me how worried they were and then thank me for not flirting with them. They don’t even see it as offensive, more like “oh, cool, you know your boundaries now I can behave like a respectable human around you”.
