It'd be like if a lot of people wanted to see Zemo wearing a purple mask. Would those people be called obsessed?
It'd be an obsession if it was something out of left field. Like if a lot of people wanted the waitress from the Avengers to be Sharon. That would be an obsession.
Here's the thing, the idea of Sharon being identical to Peggy is a relic of naive 1960s comic book writing. That same plot point would come across as lazy convenient writing to any discerning member of the 21st century general audience.
I wouldn't mind having a Sharon who looks like Peggy, but using the same actress just won't cut it; and this is coming from a huge Haley Atwell fan.
