Okay guys, Carmilla talk
I’ve been biting my tongue for months now, but given the “buzz” that has happened while I was away, I’m just going to say it.
I don’t find Natasha attractive (
that’s not the big revelation). The reason for 97% of the tampon fandom to swoon over every pic/gif of Natasha/Carmilla is a mystery to me… I genuinely wonder what you all see when you look at her, but I guess I just need to accept that I’m immune to her charms.
That being said, I do have eyes. I have eyes when I watch Natasha
who shares a body with Carmilla, I have eyes when I read fanfics that involve Carmilla who also happens to share a body with Natasha, and yet what they see doesn’t add up.
This fandom is not shy in expressing how flustered Natasha makes them -not to mention the endless and numerous tags praising her beauty- so I don’t get it. Why does practically every single fic I read mention “toned abs”, “toned stomach”, “muscled arms”, “lean, endless legs” and more when describing Carmilla? Natasha doesn’t have a “flat stomach” or “toned abs”, she has a round lower stomach like most women do. She also has large hipbones, her back is very, very arched (
like holy shit, that must be painful) and she has no muscles whatsoever. It’s not like she ever lied about how much she hates to work out or jog either. And it’s not like you can look so slouchy and sluggish if you’re athletic, even if you’re the best actor in the world.
I see absolutely nothing wrong with any of the physical traits I just mentioned about Natasha, and yet, a lot of people who claim that she’s “a beautiful goddess gracing the Creampuffs with her presence” are also the ones that change almost everything about her body. So what is it, then, guys? The person you describe as being the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen is not enough for you? I’m fairly confused.
There’ll probably be people thinking that this rant is about defending Natasha. It’s not. It’s more about women in general, and how we tend to always describe them to fit
society our own fantasies, I guess.
And honestly, Natasha doesn’t need any help to defend herself. “Retweet if you like to eat” was the best answer she could give her detractors.
I may or may not have laughed and high-fived my screen when I read that tweet
