I’m tired of people saying that Black Widow’s suit in the film is impractical, thus it’s only there to make her look sexy, so let’s take a look at her suit and Clint’s suit side by side.
As you can see, it’s the same general make. Tight-fitting to promote agility, dark colours to aid stealth, and made to accommodate their personal weapons of choice. The material looks rather similar in both, so I’m assuming the suits give them the same amount of protection.
If we’re going by some sort of exposure factor, Clint’s suit is much more revealing. He’s got a lot more skin showing.
The only difference I’m seeing here is that Natasha has breasts and Clint doesn’t.
So basically, when people call Natasha a slut/kank based on the “flimsy” suit that she’s wearing but see no fault in the fact that Clint is wearing what looks to be very similar materials, all I’m hearing is, “She has boobs, so she must be a slut/skank.”
In short, get the fuck out of my fandom.
It actually really bothers me that Clint has zero protection on his arms. HE NEEDS THOSE. If someone damages his arm(s), that’s it: he can’t use his main weapon (I will note here that I’ve read very few Marvel comics and don’t know if he’s also got amazing martial arts training - not that they’d be much use either under those circumstances). He doesn’t need that much freedom of movement that trading in arm protection for it would be worth the risk. Natasha’s suit is infinitely more practical, even with the slightly inexplicable v-neck.
