“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.
“why is a thirteen year old discoursing about sexual ships they should be on neopets not on a website whose mobile app is 17+ and which allows smut (18+ in I think Germany if I remember the screengrab @kirtlandswarbler took) if they don’t like fandom ships that for the record are older than they are for a book series that’s over half their age holy shit.
granted when i was 13 i was technically homeless and also writing about harry potter getting his ass fucked by voldemort but…c’est la vie. god kids are so ignorant y’all need to learn you some fandom history like holy fuck, i’m filled with a mix of pity and indigestion.”
Claude is referring to this post which reads, ‘Stop shipping literal kids’.
From Tumblr’s Terms of Service:
“You have to be at least 13 years old to use Tumblr. We’re serious: it’s a hard rule, based on U.S. federal and state legislation. “But I’m, like, 12.9 years old!” you plead. Nope, sorry. If you’re younger than 13, don’t use Tumblr. Ask your parents for a Playstation 4, or try books.“
13-year-olds have every right to be on Tumblr, and have every right to expect adults not to fetishize children and child abuse in fiction.
“Amen. Antishippers are abusers. Anyone who says otherwise willfully put their head in the sand (and that is it’s own disgusting behavior.)”
Critiquing fiction for glamorizing pedophilia/abuse/incest/etc. isn’t abuse, we’ve been over this already. Instead, I’d like to draw everyone’s attention this part of the original post:
“This isn’t hyperbole. Just yesterday an anti boasted about sexually harassing his 11-year-old sister because he caught her searching for Voltron porn, and about how he’d tried to convince his parents to abusively restrict her internet access.“
For those who are hesitant to click that link, an anti shipper was venting his frustration over how easily his 11-year-old sister could access pornographic Voltron fan art on Tumblr. He never harassed her or did anything to hurt her.
The fact that Claude uncritically reblogged a post citing this as an example of harassment proves he knows nothing about actual harassment. It also indicates he’s okay with minors viewing pornographic content, which is really disturbing in light of how he fetishizes them in his artwork (Porn/gore warning).
Edit: I should probably add that the person being falsely accused of sexual harassment is only 16.
“YOU CAN GO TO SCHOOL FOR THAT?!?! God – OK seriously like that’s my dream. My dream job is comic artist and/or the kinda person who works in rehabilitating sex offenders or EVEN BETTER helping preventing such offenses LIKE WHAT THEY DO AT PREVENTION PROJECT DUNKELFELD (but I don’t speak German so that’s a tad difficult) because it just interests me so much.”
Yeah, we all know why you’d want to work around pedophiles and sex offenders, K. M. Claude. You can claim all you want that you want to keep them from offending, but your actions tell a different story:
Content warnings for pornographic, gory artwork of children and pedophile apologism.
- You’ve claimed that pedophilia is a mental illness, even thought it’s not, indicating you have no idea what you’re doing.
- You also call people ableist for being disgusted by pedophiles, indicating you see nothing inherently wrong with being attracted to kids.
- Proper treatment for pedophilia involves getting pedophiles to admit their attraction to kids is wrong, so your attitude is counterproductive.
- You also draw extreme fetish artwork of children, which encourages pedophiles to sexualize them.
- Worst of all, you’ve made statements that imply you’re a pedophile, which makes it doubtful that you’d be a competent therapist.
“Should the mermaid story really be a comic? Should it stay as a short story? Should it be an illustrated short story, as if it were an ultraviolent pornographic children’s book? Should I just give up? So many questions…”
Why couldn’t Claude just describe this as an illustrated short story? Comparing it to an ‘ultra-violent, pornographic children’s book’ in light of how Claude depicts pedophilia and child abuse sounds… not good.
#id like every anti to pay for the therapy i need#id like my hateblog to personally pay for my therapy for at minimum a year of weekly visits ti a therapist#bc i need it and not just for being trans

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.
“I’m not a huge fan of them, no. I’d never be senselessly cruel to a child or purposefully hurt a child – or anyone, really – but I’m not a big fan.”
Just because you don’t like kids in general doesn’t mean you aren’t sexually attracted to them (For people who haven’t heard about K. M. Claude, read this list for proof that he’s a pedophile). Sexual attraction to someone doesn’t necessarily mean you want to spend time with them on a regular basis.
