But Bundy stans have found a rather left-field argument to try to shame the kink shamers: What about Venom? When that movie was released in 2018, plenty of folks came out of the woodwork to admit to having the hots for Venom. Not Tom Hardy, mind, but Tom Hardy encased into a shell of evil dark slime like an eldritch Kinder Egg. So how is loving one disgusting, ravenous monster any different than loving another? Like so:
Still recovering from the previous batshit fangirl feud they had to endure, Venom stans were quick to reject the comparison, bringing up the small distinguishing fact that Venom isn't freaking real. And while it might be a bit weird wanting to be pleasured by an infectious psychopath with a mouth that looks like it should be popping out of a treasure chest to devour careless adventurers, Venom never lured young women to their doom by preying on their kindness. Venom never slaughtered human beings for kicks (as much as he wanted to). Also, Venom was never into turtlenecks. Say what you will about Venom enthusiasts, but at least they have standards.
