    Once a work of art (or entertainment) is in the marketplace, the creators can no longer control how it is interpreted. So ‘ship away!

    My Supergirl isn’t queer (although she is an ally). Also, my Supergirl lives in an orphanage and has a robot double in a tree. Those last two are not how she is being interpreted in today’s comics. We can coexist.

    Probably the biggest shipping relationship I know of is the argument/fight between BANGEL (Buffy & Angel) and SPUFFY (Spike & Buffy). Message boards can go on for days and days and days with people debating and arguing for their favorite ship. (I have to admit that I’m into BANGEL as a “first love” situation, but for the long term solid relationship, I go with SPUFFY.)

    I’m like Martha..My Supergirl is Linda Lee in the orphanage and then Linda Lee Danvers after she is adopted–and although I’m not into Streaky, her cat–sorry, I’m not a cat person, for me it’s Krypto–I am totally in Comet, her super-horse. (Although I always was a little disturbed, even as a kid, that he would occasionally revert to his (male) human form–talk about Freudian bullshit! But I loved the robots and Lesla-Lar–which I STILL think would be a FANTASTIC story on the SUPERGIRL television show–and the fact that Supergirl was her cousin Superman’s “secret weapon.”

    As for the assholes out there who get twisted all out of shape over shipping LGBT+ relationships in their favorite forms of entertainment….

    Well, to quote William Shatner: Get a life!

    And in my own succinct way: Fuck you and grow up!
