Thoughts on Supergirl 2x13
I watched last night’s episode and I must that I was quite disappointed and was wondering what happened to the show I love.
I’m only going to focus on one scene which is the one where kara and Mon-el argue at the DEO, because right now I don’t have time to rant about the whole episode.
[I must worn you tho if you’re karamel shipper or a fan Mon-el you shouldn’t read this, I try to only spread positivity and try to no send any hate to any character or ship, you can like whatever you want. I worte this when I was watching the episode and got pretty pissed and also curse a lot lol.]
Kara told mon-el to back off but he didn’t because he knows better ? What the actual fuck Monell invalidated Kara’s feelings and opinions, because he has to know what’s right not her just after she told him that she could handle it and wasn’t some damsel in distress. She should have turned around and punish him but what happens ? They switch to a lighter music to show that this is a “fun scene”, that we’re not supposed to be hella pissed at Monel for what he said, this is “a cute couple bickering” NO IT’S NOT WHAT THE FUCK.
Then Monel calls her full of herself ? Wtf ??? And we’re supposed to think this is “cute” cause ohhh he was just jealous ??? What’s happening to this show ???
“I’m the one who supposed to be mad ” ??? Fuck off with your man pain ? Kara has so much to deal with, that crazy mister whatever the fuck and you ?? You have some man pain cause a psycho offered your crush flowers ??? Yeah you’re definitely the one who gets to be mad right now
Kara finally actually calls him out on his bullshit because he’s such a fucking macho and what does he say ? Dexamit ! He brings all to something kara apologized for and felt truly sorry about. so what does any of his macho behavior has to do with being daxamit ? Nothing ! Absolutely nothing but he has to make himself look like the victim here when he’s actually the asshole. Again i hate the fact that this scene is supposed to be “comic” cause it’s not.
“Not all of them” oh Right Monel you need every girl to throw yourself at you huh ? You’re not used to a woman standing up to you right ? You need them to shut up and be good trophies right ? Oh wait he literally said that ! Thanks for helping me proving my point buddy. I hate that this reenforces, not only the objectification of women, but also the idea that when a girl says no she’s just playing “hard to get”, this is disgusting (and sends such a fucked up message). It’s even worse when you realise this line was not only litteraly used on the episode but as trope used on kara during the season when she kept repeating she didn’t like Monel and Alex telled her if she’s sure cause why won’t she like him right ? Fuck this shit
