Quit using sex abuse scandals as your shield.

kmclaude:

“but also i’m reminded of that one iconic moment from america’s next top model where this one girl is like sobbing and throwing a tantrum over a missed cab and one of the models goes “I just wanna tell you that some people have war in their countries” – like there are literal child and teen molestation scandals coming out like we time traveled to goddamn 2002 and 2003 with the Catholic Church scandals and then Michael Jackson’s scandals but hey, you know, harassing a queer indie artist who creates content specifically about how abuse fucks you up (so, you know, abuse is bad is the only logical conclusion) is really sticking it to the man and helping people.”

There’s a lot to unpack here. Content warnings for pornographic artwork of children and K. M. Claude defending pedophilia.

  • You’re using the ‘Appeal to worse problems‘ fallacy. Just because there are sexual abuse scandals going on right now doesn’t mean people can’t care about Internet pedophiles like you.
    • Also, people have every right to be concerned since the line between a non-offending pedophile and a child molester is razor-thin.
  • Warning others that someone is a pedophile or criticizing someone’s art isn’t harassment.
    • Also, specifying that you’re a queer artist every time someone calls you out for pedophilia makes it sound like you think being attracted to kids is just like being queer.
