We can’t have two mares date on the show because that’s “inappropriate for children” but sure we can definitely have Rarity stick her butt up in the air while she pretends to admire a stallion in order to trick him out of his possessions.
I love Kara but it does need to be acknowledged that it’s ridiculous she talks about how Mon-El is an arrogant egoist but he is absolutely right in that she constantly overestimates what she can handle on her own. She was able to deal with the XYZPTLK without killing (by threatening indirect suicide which he couldn’t have) but how many times does Kara need to learn that she also has an ego because she assumes to always be able to do it on her own? There are many times when having a partner saved her butt because even Supergirl can get into trouble. Like teaming up with The Flash in S1, with her cousin against Metallo and the other one, having to be rescued by the Flash when she got mind controlled by the Dominators, multiple times on Slaver’s Moon Mon-El twice and her sister because she jumped without looking, Mon-El saving her with the two electrical beings (ironic Mon-El gets hate for that sigh)…needless to say she still hasn’t learned that she can’t do it alone and she isn’t always right! Yes girl power is awesome and she kicks butt. And in many cases she doesn’t necessarily need someone. And then there are cases she most certainly does and should rely on her friends and allies. People don’t often like the male hero lead doing this, it’s the same thing for females because ultimately no one does it on their own.
People jump on Mon-El for not listening to Kara when she said to contact her sister but you know what would have been smarter? If Kara had called for backup to arrive BEFORE jumping into the portal. Kara really does have bad judgment calls sometimes it is no wonder Mon-El is just a little wary of them. However when it comes to their interpersonal relationship he has always been respectful and attentive.
And people point out that the show via Kara lists out all the reasons Mon-El is terrible for Kara but Kara herself also says he keeps proving her wrong which people ignore. She isn’t infallible and she still has to get over her own prejudice towards Daxamites and the others kind of follow her lead on that as well as people outside the show even though there is nothing to indicate he still acts like a partier on Earth. If anything if Mon-El and Kara weren’t so into each other I’d say Kara is the unfair one towards him. He also has very legitimate grievances His irritation that she’s hyper-critical towards him and unrealistic standards while ignoring and not seeming to see that he is trying. And while he says she never doubted him if only he knew that she did and made stereotyped assumptions like when he got caught by Cadmus that he was just out being a manwhore. Then there is the foot in the mouth yikes conversation where she utterly stabs him with it wasn’t his profession she just could never be with someone like him. And then is giving very mixed signals because she rejected him hard and then for someone not interested is very interested in finding out how his date went. It is clear though that they do like each other and are good together for now although if/when it does fail (which I hope it doesn’t but…) it will be over irreconciable differences like these and other events.
