Point of order.
Rumor to my ears has it that Blizzard's reaction to Widowmaker/Tracer being a 'ship is along the lines of "As much as we appreciate the fanart, guys, Widowmaker is so much more terrible a person oh god you obviously have no idea please don't go there."
So, while I agree that her visual design is pure fanservice, I tend to think that they're trying to turn that into a disturbing disconnect with the inner horror, rather than a particularly weird stop on the fetish train.
The most wonderful thing about BBs
Is BBs are wonderful things
Their sides are made out of iron
Their guns are made out of pain
They're crashy smashy bashy flashy fun-fun-fun-fun-fun
But the most wonderful thing about BBs
Is there is more than one
The~re is more than one!
