As someone who follows all the DC TV shows, especially Supergirl, this is unfortunately not a surprise.

Hollywood is full of horndogs... news at 11. 
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

TLDR but I think they should cancel the arrowverse. Oh and probably look into the harassment stuff too.

It is almost as if the whole "Look how awesome females are" things that happen so often are some sort of..way to divert attention away from him being a scumbag or something.

but NAAAH nobody would ever do something like that.

Is there something you know about Joss Whedon that you ain't telling?

We'd need a whole forum section to cover that subject.

I would say yes, but his ex-wife beat me to it.

Some reaction from Benoist, Rickards and Leigh:

It sounds like they are saying they didn't know anything about this. I have a hard time believing that.

Given what we know so far, it seems plausible - on most show the creation side of things is quite detached from the performance side - apart from costume fittings, actors don't usually have that much contact with the people who create the scripts, sets and props that they work with, and Kreisberg seems to have gone for lower risk targets like writers and assistants rather than the public facing part of the shows.
