K. M. Claude posted that in response to this (Basically, people were upset about others interpreting problematic/evil characters as trans).
On one hand, Claude has a point – trans people are capable of being evil/problematic/unpleasant/etc. just like any other group of people. However, I agree that it seems hypocritical for Claude to get so worked up over this when they falsely accuse people of transphobia whenever they get called out for something.
You know what’s really disturbing about this? Every time someone calls out K. M. Claude for their gross kinks, they claim that person is only attacking them because they’re trans. It makes it sound like Claude thinks being a pedophile, a necrophile, or some other kind of gross person is on the same level as being trans.
Sorry for the silence, here’s some pro-pedophile stuff I found over on K. M. Claude’s Twitter. Highlights include Claude confessing to being an ephebophile (Someone with a preference for 15- to 19-year-olds).

K. M. Claude and roachpatrol are missing the point. When people complain about sexualization, they’re complaining about:
People, particularly marginalized people, being oversexualized and reduced to fetish objects.
Portraying harmful things such as rape, pedophilia, or incest as sexy.
I’d like to remind people that both Claude and Roach have made erotic fiction about minors being sexually abused. Claude has also created a lot of rape/incest-themed porn involving their adult characters.
K. M. Claude seems to have the mindset of, ‘Other people are doing this thing, so that makes it okay’. Like, no, other peoples’ bad behavior doesn’t cancel out their bad behavior.
Also, I think part of the problem is Claude surrounds themself with people who either a.) sexualize minors in their own works, or b.) support and consume media that sexualizes minors, so their opinion of what’s acceptable is pretty warped.
Yeah, I have a really hard time believing K. M. Claude draws the things they draw for catharsis or any kind of coping, considering they made statements like ‘I want a harem of shotas’ and called themself an underage kink-haver.
Also, there is absolutely no reason for Claude (or anyone else) to post pornographic artwork of children. It only encourages pedophiles to view kids as sex objects, and many pedophiles have used this material to groom children for sex.
Possible past rape, pretty definite present rape, the comic is all about consent issues. I super appreciate you recommending my comic but definitely agree that if murky consent is something you tag/warn for, then yeah, definitely might wanna include that (I would hate for someone to get mad at you and your blog because there wasn’t a warning for a very prickly topic).
Pretty sure people would have every right to be mad at rape/consent issues not being tagged or warned for, considering a.) those are disturbing topics, and b.) being exposed to triggering material could cause some people to have panic attacks or flashbacks.
Looks like Claude’s defending slurs again. Specifically, they made a comic where they say they look like a dyke. People pointed out that it was inappropriate for men to use to that word in reference to themselves.
Accused lesbians of making this all about them, even though ‘dyke’ is a slur against lesbians. [x]
Accused people of personally attacking them for pointing out that men shouldn’t refer to themselves as dykes. [x]
Claimed only cis lesbians have a problem with this. [x]
This is transphobic because it’s erasing trans lesbians.
To make things worse, K. M. Claude accused everyone who had a problem with this of being a TERF. [x]
