“The irony being man you know antis spent so long trying to get me and others to stop making art and sure I now have severe psychological damage due to slander and harassment that can never be taken back or undone but man all they had to do was hook me and sugarbitz up from the get go rather than waiting for our friend to do so because now I’m too mentally distracted to draw.“
‘I have severe psychological damage due to slander and harassment’?! Honestly, I don’t know how K. M. Claude can accuse his critics of being professional victims when he posts things like this. Criticism isn’t a form of harassment, and Claude isn’t being slandered because the claims about him are backed up by evidence.
Besides, even if he did have psychological trauma as a result of being outed as a pedophile, it’s not reasonable to expect others to keep quiet about something that serious.
“If you call someone a monster enough, sooner or later they’ll begin to believe it despite being the farthest thing from it. If you’re not careful, some of the “monsters” you so carelessly made may begin to act monstrously and the fault will lie partly with you. And the rest of us you carelessly made believe in our nonexistent monstrosity? The many of us? Will just suffer in silence because beliefs are damn hard to change.“
#1. If you act like a monster because people are calling you one, you’ve only proven them right.
#2. People aren’t accusing K. M. Claude of being a terrible person for no reason. He’s openly admitted to being a pedophile, drawn sexual artwork of children, and harassed (Page contains depictions of blood and self-harm) people who disagree with him.
“You find it dishonest because it is in fact dishonest. “Truth? What is truth? I wash my hands of this matter” and all that.”
#1. Claude rarely gets any threats. Besides, he’s an open pedophile, so obviously people are going to send him hate.
#2. People sending asks expressing disgust/disagreement/etc. over Claude’s content isn’t baiting.
#3. I’ve never victim-blamed Claude, because he’s not a victim of anything except his own foolishness.
#4. This ask also ignores the many times Claude has overreacted to genuine criticism, citing it as an example of harassment. It also ignores the times Claude has harassed people and not apologized for it (Warning: Links contain gore and self harm-baiting).

Hot tip: other people aren’t responsible for the consequences of your bad behavior. If you get called out for being a pedophile and you feel bad about it, that’s entirely on you.

Ah yes, the problem is those gosh darn haters, and not because pairing a minor with an adult is disgusting. *rolls eyes*
Claude really needs to re-examine their priorities..
“I probably am one – I go on mild benders, then stop for mooooonths, and then whoops. Which… probably fits the definition of ‘functional alcoholic’.
But I can’t use art as an outlet without being called every horrible thing in the book, harassed, abused, and treated like crap by everyone (including people I like) while the entire world around us goes to hell, so I might as well slowly kill myself and numb everything in the process. I’m just hoping I can make good enough art before that happens.”
Dude, you’ve reblogged posts blaming minors for their sexual trauma, you’ve openly longed for your own harem of little boys, and you’ve repeatedly treated your critics like crap. I don’t want to hear about how people who call you out are bullies and abusers. Also, quit blaming your critics for your drinking problems, it’s manipulative as hell.
“But Carrot you don’t understand: someone I don’t like is making art that I don’t agree with so I’m totally justified in my horrible, stalkerish, abusive, bored behavior duuuuUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH.”
Interesting how Claude accuses me of misusing words like ‘pedophile’ and ‘pedophilia’, yet here they are comparing legitimate criticism to stalking and abuse.
