#black widow spoilers

The Black Widow movie highlights all the problems I had with the way Joss Whedon approached the forced hysterectomy aspect of Nat’s background.
As Yelena notes when she shows Nat her vest- the girls of the Red Room don’t have bodily autonomy. They can’t make any decisions for themselves. The hysterectomy bit in the plane acts as a very vile and vivid example of this.
Joss Whedon chose to put all his focus on the “no kids” angle instead of the bodily autonomy angle. In his eyes the horror was the absence of child bearing, not the absence of choice. To him- it’s a given that all the girls in Red Room would’ve had babies if their lives had gone differently- bc women who can’t have children are monsters and societal outcasts.
When Nat inquired about Yelena wanting kids she replied that she wanted a dog. I take this as Yelena doesn’t want kids, BUT she still mourns the loss of that choice. She resents how she never had a chance to come to that realization herself. Which, for most women, will hit home more than just “shes infertile and it’s the worst possible thing that could happen to her.”

This is the first piece of clothing I've ever bought for myself. It has a lot of pockets. I use them all the time, and I made some of my own modifications.

As much as I loved Black Widow (2021) I still feel robbed. If anything my feelings grew stronger. That movie just showed me that the character of Natasha Romanoff had so much potential and easily could have had a whole franchise of 3-4 movies like some of the other heroes such as Iron Man and Captain America. The whole cast of characters in this movie would have been so good in a series that allowed them to flesh out three dynamics and characters more. While I hope to see more of the characters introduced in the future I can’t help but feel disappointed by how much potential was wasted in sidelining Natasha for so long.

Natasha Romanoff while killing aliens in New York: This exactly like that time we murdered my old boss and his daughter.
Clint Barton: This is nothing like that time we murdered your old boss and his daughter.
