Hey, people? Please stop saying Korra put Bolin in the friend zone. That term is just gross. Korra was wrong to kiss Mako when he was dating Asami, and she probably shouldn’t have led Bolin on without telling him she didn’t see him that way, but the “friend zone” is a term that has a lot of negative connotations - specifically, it embodies this idea that simply being nice to a woman means that you deserve her romantic affections and that it’s wrong for her not to offer them, which is horribly misogynistic and attempts to shame a woman for making her own romantic and sexual choices. The concept of the “friend zone” also means that women have to be wary when guys want to be friends, because we have no way of knowing if they’re just doing it to get sex and if they’ll react badly when turned down. Korra made a lot of mistakes in this episode and did a lot of things to hurt Bolin’s feelings, but “putting him in the friend zone” wasn’t one of them.
Though considering this is the same fandom with a faction that deems Asami a “slut” for asking out a guy she liked, it probably doesn’t make a difference to a lot of you.
