Today’s Unpopular Opinion
Brought to you Supergirl
So I want to make it clear that I’m not an anti for this ship, but I do feel the need to call out those who call Karamel abusive while blatantly ignoring what has been going on in the Sanver’s relationship.
So I am calling out the abuse -
1. Maggie lied to Alex about how she came out, saying her parents supported it when in fact they ostracised her. They way she initially dealt with was to totally shun Alex, making her feel like crap. Okay, so she made it up to Alex in the end but four episodes later….
2. Maggie lies about a past relationship. The implication that her previous girlfriend was to blame for the split up when it turns out that Maggie had an affair is not a good thing to do. While Alex responded well, saying that it wasn’t her place to judge on previous actions, Alex, like her sister does not deserve to be lied to, and having an affair, lying about it and making the other person is a pretty big deal - okay, it’s not lying about being the Prince of Daxam big, but you know it’s manipulative.
3. Maggie forced Alex to come out with the implication of a further relationship and originally backtracked on that. If anyone tells me it was for Alex’s own good so she could accept herself, then you are pretty much guilty as sin. You don’t force people you care about to come out. You don’t throw them under the bus like that.
So I just don’t see how this behaviour is considered acceptable when in the same breath saying Karamel is abusive.
And that isn’t to say that I am blind to what has previously happened in Karamel but if you are going to call out Mon-El in that relationship, then you have to call out Kara as well because she has been blatantly racist and prejudice towards Mon-El for being a Daxamite on more than one occasion as well as not allowing him chances to explain himself - such as in Star-Crossed. That said, Mon-El didn’ t respond quickly enough to his parents return, leading to Kara having to engage with the Daxamites.
To my mind, neither behaviour is good. But the hypocrisy has to bloody stop.
