el confused

¿De qué sirve siempre dar mucho, apoyar, saber escuchar y siempre estar ahí cuando te necesitan si al final del día siempre vas a dar más de lo que recibes y te vas a seguir sintiendo igual de solo?

what pissed me off the most about this week’s ep isn’t even the fact that we got only 7 minutes of sanvers in an episode that was supposed to be sanvers centric and even winn and his girl got more time. it wasn’t even the fact that it was pretty much just another episode of keeping up with mon-el and not supergirl. but it was the fact that when kara was faking that she doesn’t like mon-el she was actually making valid points. she was making valid points about why they can’t be together and yet at the end of the episode they got together. because apparently when a girl says no it just means that you have to try harder to get her. (which reminds me wasn’t the point of this ep to show that no means no?? but like they keep doing the opposite with mon-el so i’m really confused here…) the great feminist show that supergirl was in season one is really gone. and as  much as i love season two for sanvers and alex’s coming out i’m really sick of it. because kara’s relationship with mon-el is inherently toxic and yet they keep shoving it down our throats. the great feminist show is telling girls that when they think they don’t like a guy they actually do and they just gotta think harder about it. like him even though he is not good for you for so many valid reasons.

Las cosas no siempre son lo que parecen y toda experiencia humana puede contemplarse desde múltiples perspectivas y merecer juicios distintos
