okay but let’s be real:
there is very likely homophobia in the avatar world. what if asami and korra have been dating but because of their public images they’ve had to keep it quiet? and asami is constantly approached by these jerks like prince wu, but she can’t do anything about it. she can’t tell them that she’s already found the love of her life. because she’s afraid.
and mako knows this and is really sympathetic and tries to help get the jerks to leave asami alone. but it’s still totally fucked.
but by the end of the series korra and asami both manage to just say fuck it and let the world know that they’re together, and are going to marry.
now that’s a season that can be shown on teennick with pride.
