Karamel and Supercorp Rant
Oh my god I can’t take it with this ship war anymore. I could write for days about my thoughts on this whole ordeal but the biggest point I need to make is STOP TREATING MON-EL LIKE A HUMAN, HE IS NOT FROM THIS PLANET! We are talking about a person who has never in his life seen kindness or empathy, who was raised by a woman that didn’t even have to think hard about killing her husband, his planet was not like earth, there were no good people to be role models for him or an example for him to live up to. Despite this, in nine months he has become a totally different person who cares and who is trying to do the right thing but he’s still just a baby in a cape, he’s bound to make mistakes while he’s learning. And yes his family owned slaves and he completely objectified women and acted like an ass for his first several… several episodes but what has happened is called CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT and it’s the pinnacle of modern entertainment.
Also Kara Zoe-El is not some wilting flower who will break down and die if a man doesn’t hold the door for her, she constantly reverses the gender norms in their relationship and she is a smart girl who isn’t going to let someone take advantage of her. She never would have given him a chance if she didn’t see the goodness in him from the beginning (after overcoming her own racism against him)
If this show fills you with this much rage I suggest not watching it…
