Dear MCU fandom,
Captain America: The Winter Soldier brought all sorts of fun stuff into fandom recently, Sam Wilson for one, Natasha awkwardly explaining her own jokes, Cap continuing to show no love to windows, and the emotional wallop of the Winter Soldier arc. There’s also been a massive influx of fic and that’s great, I love it. But we need to talk about something and furthermore, I need people to stop doing something:
Stop taking Bucky’s arm.
This keeps popping up in fic after fic and there are some really damaging elements at play here that are building a toxic narrative. This is not to say that if you’ve incorporated this into one of your fics that you are bad you should feel bad, but I think a lot people don’t really know how problematic this set-up is and why it is so problematic. This is me trying to explain.
By taking his arm, there is an immediate violation of his bodily autonomy and a reasonably high risk of a re-traumatizing event.
Bodily autonomy is crucial to the narrative of CA:TWS since stripping Bucky of his autonomy, deconstructing his entire sense of self, was exactly how HYDRA created the Winter Soldier.
Warning: the post will discuss disregard of bodily autonomy, disabilities, and trauma in accordance with these same elements as seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Please keep your own self-care in mind.
Disclaimer: This touches on some really complicated stuff in regards to disability identities and I know I am absolutely not the best situated to talk about a lot of this just because I have taken some course dealing with it. I am not trying to talk over or define anyone’s personal experience with this and please drop me a line if I have put my foot in it. The goal of this is to try and confront some problematic trends in this fandom, not to further propagate damaging narratives so please do correct me if I’m doing that anywhere.
