I just knew that this episode was going to bring the Nice Guy™ sympathizers out of the woodwork. 
Korra isn’t attracted to Bolin, and attraction isn’t something that can be forced. Let me repeat: Attraction can not be forced. 
Bolin wasn’t the only one who got shot down. Korra also ultimately did not get the guy she was interested in. The implication that only men suffer from “friend zoning” (unrequited love or attraction) is ridiculous. Women get rejected too. 
Women don’t owe men dates or sex or a relationship as a reward for their “niceness”. Being nice is basic human decency. 
The people in this fandom who are bashing and maligning Korra (calling her a “bitch” or a “slut”) for who she is or who she isn’t attracted to need to think long and hard about what bullshit they’ve internalized. 
(And ugh, the asinine quote in the image came from Brotips. Seriously guys, that is not a good tip. It is a red flag for spotting jerks.)
