OMG OMG OMG i cant anymore i wanna fly away or smth cause this is batshit crazy. So the reason for all this is that i am taking an online law course right and one of our assignments was to read about a case from the 80s. Long story short at the time the president wanted to require both men and women to sign up for the war but congress only got funds for men and when sued they held that equality had nothing to do with it (ya know the whole we dont hate women BUT we dont need them whatever) and they won the case so we just had to give our opinion on whether it is fair for women to not have to be required to fight in a war. I don’t think anyone needs to be required to register but that’s another story so lets just focus on that one question now. The answers were the most appalling things I had ever read I swear. This one woman straight up said yes because women are fragile and they are better with babies (what century are we in lady? i thought we moved past this at least). Other people were like of course women can do anything they want BUT men just do it better and blah blah. But the weirdest answer that I don’t even know where people come with this stuff, was this guy who said that women are not fit for war because if they don’t take a shower DAILY time they get sick?!! BUT and I am screaming here men can go on for days without bathing and not die. Because as we all know men don’t need to take a shower or clean themselves or just have to take care of their own hygiene. And like some of these are people working in good high-paying jobs and starting families (except the guy who doesn’t take showers he is apparently an alchemist and music producer like really ). So three things I got out of this
1)I am glad I am taking an online class because I would have slapped some of these people except the alchemist guy because he most likely smells
2) People still forget there are more than pink and blue gender and they really hate pink
3)I think I am taking a class with the same guy responsible for this
Honestly I’m still, 2 weeks later, pissed the fuck off over the Maggie/Kara conflict, ie. blatant lie the CW made up just for conflict purposes. I can’t remember a time Kara has ever tried to solve a problem by punching her way out before she has tried to talk her way out of things. It’s a lesson she learnt in Human For A Day and has always tried to talk to people, usually before Alex can have a chance at shooting them. Remember how much Kara tried to talk down Astra for most of season 1 and she was getting through to her, and Alex went straight for the kill? If anything, the words/fists argument should have been between Maggie and Alex, since Alex shoots first asks questions never and even went as far to blow up CADMUS while she was in the building.
And then in Resist, when Kara tries to talk Rhea down from invading Earth, and in fact fucks the whole plan to blow up the mothership because Alex had to wait to fire the cannon and then it got destroyed, because Kara wanted to talk to Rhea.
I’m not even gunna talk about the fact that Maggie just happened to know who Guardian is despite never being told, and the blatant reuse of the mind controlled family member at the end of the penultimate episode that has to fight Kara into the final episode.
Honestly it’s like they hire a new writer every week and make sure whoever they hire hasn’t seen a single episode of Supergirl.
Allison Reynolds was a bewildering choice for Palmetto State. She looked like a picture-perfect princess, but she could brawl with the best of them on the court. She refused to bend to others’ expectations of her and could be honest to the point of cruelty. She could have inherited her parents’ billion-dollar empire, but she didn’t want the restrictions that life came with. She wanted the right to be her own person. She wanted to prove herself on the court.
