Okay I know I said I was going to get off b/c people were starting to complain but here’s something I’ve been seeing pop up and I really think I should say something on it before you go.
Guess what it is?
~ The Forced Kiss on Ginger ~
I’ve seen a lot of people saying how it was wrong of Bolin to do that and yes it was. I’m really disappointed that Bolin did that but that’s not what I’m here to talk about. I’m here to talk about the fact that people are saying that it wasn’t addressed.
…I’m sorry what. CLEARLY you don’t know how to read in-between the lines and shit because it most certainly was.
Men are often disillusioned when it comes to women. You know what I mean:
- How we’re totally asking for it by what we wear
- How we’re such teases and how we always lead them on
- How “no” actually means “yes” or “try harder”
- How just because we have vaginas immediately makes us obtainable
Bolin was disillusioned. In her role on screen, Ginger was in love with her boyfriend, Nuktuk. She’s an actress, it’s her job. She’s probably used to differentiating reality from work. Bolin, however, is new to the industry. He can’t really tell the difference.
Now am I saying that now he’s convinced that he’s a heroic waterbender with a talking panda-bear dog? No. But could he possibly be confused about his relationship with Ginger between reality and on screen? Yes.
Now hold up this isn’t me justifying what Bolin did at all. No I do not agree and I really think Bolin needs to clean up his act. But this is me explaining what was going on in that moment. Bolin connected his actual life with his fake life as Nuktuk and mixed the two so much that he became disillusioned that Ginger was an actual person who just wasn’t interested in him.
So when Ginger calls him out on that, the writers were actually addressing the issue.
She set him straight, differentiating her actual being from her on screen being. She told him “I am not that girl who you think I am. I am Ginger, an actress, who is doing her job. You are Bolin, an actor, doing your job. We are not Ginger and Nuktuk who are in love with each other. Get your facts straight.”
So see people? It’s all. About. Context.
