Basically my favorite thing about Katara is she’s allowed to be petty and own her anger and still be presented as fundamentally helpful and kind motherly person
because girls are NEVER ALLOWED TO DO THAT in fiction hardly EVER.
If they want to be helpful and sweet they better never be angry or selfish because god how could anyone like a girl who ever does that. They must dedicate themselves to helping everyone else with their problems and never have feelings of their own. Those attitudes are reserved for the “bad girls”.
