What is stopping this from easily happening?

Okay bitches, it's time for an explanation (of how I see it)!
First things first: By "every airbender avatars" I mean every future avatar that was a native/born an airbender, like Korra is native waterbender. Of course every Avatar will be able to airbend sooner or later. Maybe I should have been more specific about that...

Second: We all pretty much know that bending is somehow genetically stored in the genes. That means that Kya and Bumi MAY be able to "produce" airbenders, just like Tenzin, though it isn't guarantied. But that STILL means that those airbenders would be descendants of Aang since Kya and Bumi are Aang's children (duh...).

"Yeah, well, uh... How come Mako and Bolin are brothers but bend different elements?" Simple! Their father was an earthbender and their mother a firebender, they just got different pair/sets/combinations of genes from their parents, just like Aang and Katara's kids did (or however you say it in english). That is also why there were only earthbenders born in the Earth Kingdom, only waterbenders born in the Water Tribe, and so on, before Korra's time. The different peoples of the earth didn't interact with each other nearly as much as they do now when the industrial revolution is in full swing and after The United Republic of Nations is founded, a place were benders and non-benders from all nations live and interact with eachother every day. Of course there might have been "interracial" couples before and during Aang's time, but they were not nearly as common as they are now.

"But if someone very spiritual is born, doesn't he become an airbender, since they are spiritually stronger than the other benders and that is a requirement for being an airbender?"
Well, I too have heard somewhere that airbenders are all supposed to be very spiritually connected when thay are born, or something like that, otherwise they wouldn't turn out to be an airbender. But by just being very spiritual doesn't mean the child becomes an airbender. They have to have the right genes too! "And how do you know that?" you may may ask. Well, where the **** were all the newborn little airbenders during the hundred year war, then?! We know that unkle Iroh was so spiritually wise and strong that he could even see and communicate with the spirits, but he was still just a firebender because he lacked the right genes. Not even the people living with Tenzin on Airtemple Island and in the other airtemples in the world are, or will ever be, airbenders. They are just acolytes: people who practise the spiritual way and living of the airbenders.
There's a reason Aang was ******* called "The Last Airbender", because that's exactly what he was! He was the only one of his kind, the last one, meaning he was the only one that carried the right genes to produce an airbender kid, which means that Aang will be every future native airbender's common ancestor!

This glorious ************ will not only be remembered as one of the most successful avatars, "The boy in the iceberg", "The last airbender",and "the founder of Republic City". He will also forever be the FATHER OF ALL NEW AIRBENDERS!!!!!
Aang is so ******* hardcore!

Tl;dr: Just read it, you lazy bum!

or someone is taught by an airbender
#129 to #110 - rikka (09/30/2013) [-]
yeah

because you can teach a non-bender how to bend

NOW GUYS YOU'RE ALL FORGETTING SOMETHING IMPORTANT
Toph was not born of bending parents, yet she became a bender due to badgermoles, the original source of earth bending. She became the strongest earth bender to exist.
Aang needed to learn fire bending, but Zuko couldn't call up a flame. They went and visited the dragons, the original source of fire bending. They learnt a stronger and more powerful form of fire bending that did not rely on rage to be used.
Aang learnt energy bending from the original source. Boom, he can energy bend.
Yes, ok, Aang is the avatar, he has the ability to learn all of these things, but focus on Toph who didn't know how to earth bend, but was taught how. Think about all of the original benders for each of these fields. They were taught by the original source of that type of bending. So, if someone happened to find the original source of air bending, then it is quite likely that they can learn to air bend, and therefore not create more air benders who are descendants of Aang.
tl;dr - Go find the original bending source and this statement becomes invalid, because, as taken from the little info on the subject, anybody can learn that type of bending.

Is there a chance Bumi or Kya could have an airbender?
#41 to #6 - anonymous (09/30/2013) [-]
They'd still be descended from Aang though.
User avatar #189 - spacecase (09/30/2013) [-]

I cant believe Aang was this funny badass kid of an avatar.

Then becomes this father of some dysfunctional family and plays favorites with his awesome kids.

I actually think that Jinora will learn how to energy bend from the first avatar, and while learning she will be able to teach the acolytes how to air bend. Just my theory of whats gonna happen this season.

Maybe the child of an avatar could be any kind of bender, so maybe Korra's kids could also be airbenders

User avatar #40 - serotonin (09/30/2013) [+] (5 replies)
maybe there are more people in the world with recessive air bending gene? Some airbender must have left few kids here and there.
You just need to get two of those to have kids and you get your self some more air benders.

If air bending would die out, would the next airbender avatar be able to resurrect it?
Not like aang, but really all gone. nobody trapped in big blocks of ice
User avatar #71 to #60 - gildemoono (09/30/2013) [-]
Nope. the avatar can learn any bending but is born into a certain type of bending. I.E. korra born as a water bender and aang as an air bender. its these initial bending states that are passed along genetically so it seems (thats why aang and katara only gave birth to an air bender, water bender, and non bender and not some random fire bender from no where.) with literally no more air benders the avatar chain would either be broken or skip to the next element

Wait a sec... If for some reason the Airbenders seize to exist, What happens to the Avatar cycle?
User avatar #62 to #57 - raquizta (09/30/2013) [-]
What I mean is, What if the firebenders succeeded in wiping out all of the airbenders including Aang, then there will be no Air nomads left thus ruining the avatar cycle since it follows a pattern through the four tribes, right? So what happens when the future fire nation avatar dies? Will the Avatar jump to water tribe then?

The other Avatars won't necessarily be descendants of Aang, but they'll be able to airbend

#22 to #19 - dethransam (09/30/2013) [-]
yes but the ones born as air benders (like Korra was born a water bender and Aang was born an airbender) must be descendent of Aang as they are the only airbenders around (avatar cycle and all that)
