Senseless Fannish Ramblings  
A recently-had dream which basically goes like this:

Toph explains to Sokka that she was upset that Piandao wouldn't let her metalbend the swords he's got in his foundry even though she assured him that she could bend them back into perfect shape.  She decideed that she wanted him to feel as angry toward her as she felt toward him.  So she told Piandao that she kissed a girl in town, knowing that this is the sort of thing that is taboo and also the sort of thing that would have set her own father off into a flying rage.  Piandao just laughed and said something like, "Another girl can't inpregnate you so it's all fine with the Master."

I was thinking about how I could work something like this into a fic...

So anyway, I was thinking about my random OC.  Her name will be Ling Mei (said like May) and she will basically be my S.I. (Self Insert).  This means she will be lazy, rude, jaded, and completely obsessed with winning Master Piandao's affections.

Haha, I love it.

For some reason, I don't think homosexuality would be such a taboo in the Avatar-verse. Especially among the Airbenders, who see worldly attachments as fleeting and unimportant, like the Cathars would be completely uninterested in anyone's bedroom behavior. The Fire Nation might look down on male homosexual behavior in the military, but none of the four nations seems to have any specific behavior that would indicate them being threatened by it. The Bei Fongs themselves might be scandalized, but they have sticks the size of curtain rods up their asses anyway.

Lao Bei Fong would be upset because he's just hardcore. Here's a guy who wanted to lock his kid away because she was blind and beating up people with Earthbending. If you don't fit into his neat little package of how he thinks a person is suppose to behave, you've got problems.

But most people wouldn't care that much. You might have some old schoolers or some social elites who might not approve of such things or view such things as "scandalous".

Toph wouldn't care. Aang wouldn't care. Katara...doubtful she'd care. Sokka might not think a guy liking another guy is "manly" but I don't think he'd have much of a problem with lesbianism. <3
