I'm going to need them to hurry up and confirm Tyzula, then I'll be one happy shipper! :P

Am I the only one who knew Kya wasn't straight from the get-go?

There are people acting surprised. I'm confused.

I thought she was one of the more obvious ones too.

Something tells me this is the start of an Easter egg hunt of sorts.  I wouldn't be surprised, as time goes by, if Mike and Bryan confirm more of the cast of Korra and possibly ATLA are LGBT.  Not a bad thing, too.

Doesn't it feel kindof... iffy, though? It kinda has that "Dumbledore/Gobber/character whatever is gay" after the fact.. vibe.

They handled Korra and Asami fairly well for what they could do with it, and their posts after that were nice, they were like "Is this a beacon of representation, no. but it's there, and we feel it's real" paraphrase.

Just saying this feels like a step back from that.

I'm not surprised or like against them being gay or bisexual or anything else, it just doesn't sound like something Bryke would actually say, then if they did... eh.

Yeah... that exact comparison did occur to me.  It did feel after-the-fact-ish, but... I don't know.  I feel okay with it.
