That's.. Not a good message either.
I agree that She-Ra veered way too quickly into the 'and they lived happily ever after' territory, and showed us too little to just accept that Adora & the team have no issues with Catra anymore. In real life, this process would be a bit more painful and involve actually fucking talking about the problems to each other.
But saying that abusers have no chance at redemption is also wrong. Just like some kids with abuse trauma may watch the show, so can kids/adults who have done some bad things. Psychologically, your message only drives the 'I have nothing to lose, then' thought further and further - if I can't be redeemed, then I forever lost and there is no point in me even trying, might as well accept it and go all in.
Then again, I disagree with simplifying Catra's figure to a reductionist 'abuser' because Adora accepted that she had to give up on Catra and that's a major turning point that goes against the usual 'abuser' cycle.
Anons are often ignoring nuance and are quick to judge. It's a cartoon so they might be right.
