I think in this fandom the Girl Code is used in a very self-serving manner, and almost never applied with any consistency. It amazes me that people purport to cite it in all seriousness, when their agenda is so patently transparent.

I'm sad Chlarkers have such a bad rep in this fandom. There seem to be so few people left who are still watching the show and who still like both Chloe and Lois. :(

I do! *waves hand frantically* I may be annoyed with how Chloe is acting toward Clark these days, but I still adore her. It does seem to be an either/or situation for a lot of people, though, doesn't it? :(

I wish they would a) let Clark and Chloe have it out once and for all and clear the air, so they can find a way back to their friendship again, and b) give us some Chlo/Lo storylines, instead of inadvertently playing into the fandom divisiveness by keeping them isolated from one another.

I just don't like that, for all these years people bashed Lois for "stealing Chloe's man (even though she never actually had Clark)"

I am so sick of people saying that. First of all, I think that whole thing about how you can't date someone because they used to date your sister/cousin/BFF is a load of hogwash. If you're meant to be with someone, you have every right to pursue happiness with them, as long as they are currently single. It's your choice to decide if the fallout, whatever that may be, is worth it, but you're not wrong or a bad person if you decide to go for it.

Secondly, I suspect that the people who say that don't really care about that issue at all. It's just an excuse to hate on Lois because they're mad she got Clark instead of Chloe. I'm sure they wouldn't have had a problem with Chloe getting together with Clark after he broke up with Lana, even though Lana was supposedly Chloe's best friend. I also don't think the people who claim to champion Lollie and use that as an excuse to bash Clois are sincere.

As far as Chlollie goes, it just doesn't make a lot of sense to me in the context of where Chloe and Oliver both are right now, but I'm not particularly opposed to it. I guess it all depends on how it plays out.
