Anonymous said: That anon was me - I don't think Toph is a slut and didn't want to imply anything like that, sorry you misunderstood my wording. We have some really bad LOK haters here, who can't deal with the fact that Aang is not the Avatar anymore, that he's dead. They hate Korra and Bryke for "ruining original characters" (their words, not mine). And I really have a feeling it will be a problem after B3... They got makorra down, they judged Aang, they'll judge Toph. And I don't like it.

So confused…this is still anon!

Also, well if this is the case I haven’t seen any of this hate yet and hadn’t even considered this until I received your message which seemed like you were labeling Toph a slut … I am certainly outright opposed to this. I do however think a large part of the fandom tends to be feminist, female- and sex-positive sooooo here’s hoping what you’ve heard is an angry, ignorant minority lashing out.

Basically though…

TOPH DONT CARE

she gon have all the baby daddies she wants…

the thrilling saga continues

Hmmmm *debates whether I owe this anon posting the clarification they have just made*

The wording of the original message I received was highly suggestive of judgment against Toph, but sure you can be concerned with fandom misinterpretation of her character!

Personally, I don’t think many people will call her a slut for having two children with two different fathers…this is a common fact of life in the world! It happens! Understanding and sensible fans will realize this and not fault Toph, let alone slut shame her.

I’m just thoroughly tickled that the creators have written a character’s past in such a way. It liberates the sexuality of the show to some degree, wouldn’t you say? That such a powerful woman could have these two children without any ramifications or implications of her “sluttiness” having brought about this result challenges the status quo of puritanical, ultra-conservative, and misogynistic views of female sexuality in our world.

Soooo…

move aside. The fandom knows not to fuck with the queen.

Anonymous said: After B3 we're going to have even bigger problem than Aang looking like a bad father - why did they make Toph look like a) a slut or unfaithful woman who had her daughters with 2 different men (or is she a black widow?), b) bad mother, since she left her daughters and is traveling around the world for who know how many years now, without any contact. There'll be also not only "who's Lin's daddy" question, but also "who's the other one's father".

imageDID YOU JUST IMPLY that having more than one child with different men makes you a slut?!?!?!?!

No sorry, will not tolerate anon slutshaming in my inbox…ESPECIALLY NOT OF TOPH!!?!?! ARE YOU KIDDING!!

Just because she had two lovers or two love affairs, both of which resulting in a child yet neither of which resulting in marriage, does not make her a “slut.”

Also, you will see in the new season (I can speak to this specifically since I have seen the leaks) that an entire conversation is dedicated to exonerating Toph as a parent. She had good intentions in her childrearing that perhaps backfired as a result of her children and their personalities, but by no fault of her own. I will not spoil here, but that’s what it meant. It’s obvious you saw the leaks and did not understand the creators’ approach at all.

Yeah…don’t know what to say here really…

Are you kidding me?!?!?!
