When did I ever deadname K. M. Claude? The only reason I have his older aliases listed on this blog is because some of the receipts on him involve content posted under those names. Specifically, the only place I have Claude’s old aliases listed is here.
I don’t think K. M. Claude realizes how harmful slurs are. He thinks that if he personally isn’t offended by something, no else is allowed to be.
- Claude has repeatedly used the term futa/futanari in reference to porn, even though many people have told him that it’s a slur against trans women and intersex people. [x], [x], [x]
- He also tried to argue that ‘futa’ and ‘cuntboy’ had nothing to do with trans people, even though many people use those words as slurs against trans people.
- He thinks trans men can call themselves dykes. [x], [x], [x]
- Claude never tags or warns for slurs when he uses them in his posts.
From the post in question:
“Dude, it’s just drawings. Who fucking cares, enjoy it. Besides, futa and cuntboys ain’t trans so please don’t feel guilty or let anyone make you feel bad for liking that shit.”
If the characters in futa/cuntboy porn aren’t supposed to be trans, then why do people see them as interchangeable with trans people? Why do people use the terms ‘futa’ and ‘cuntboy’ as slurs against trans people? Fact is, cis people who consume and produce this kind of porn are harming trans people, because they’re treating us as if our existence is inherently deviant and reducing us to a fetish.
(Also, FYI, futa/cuntboy porn harms intersex people too.)
Before anyone tries to argue that K. M. Claude doesn’t hate women, keep in mind he has stated that all women are ‘fucking cunts’. Also, he has downplayed rape culture while using victim-blaming rhetoric.
As for why Claude still has fans: People have a tendency to defend their favorite content creators no matter what. They probably believe that because Claude draws well, he can be as terrible as he likes.
“Nah it’s a rude dig at people who took a bad thing that happened to them and used those issues to treat others like garbage.Crazy thought but people tend not to be nice to those people who accuse them of extremely grave things because they like certain topics in kinky fanfiction. By that logic, I want to murder people because I love fiction with murder, and I must also want to eat people because I’m a slut for erotic cannibalism in the art and lit I consume. What’s ironic here, this comic? I never said I was. Even if I did, I was speaking on fiction and fanfic pairings but here you are saying I wanna fuck kids based on… nothing.You don’t get to throw stones and then demand the people you hit smile sweetly and speak well of you.”
#1. Jacking off to cannibalism, children being sexually violated, and incest isn’t kinky, it’s disgusting.
#2. In that comic Anon mentioned, you literally said, ‘Us weird, non-con, incest, and underage kink-havers’!
#3. ‘You don’t get to throw stones and then demand the people you hit smile sweetly and speak well of you.’ Those are pretty big words coming from someone who just shat on survivors of incestuous rape and abuse.
“…Who’s gonna tell Anon-chan about all the free art I post freely for free all the time….… WHO’S GONNA TELL ANON-CHAN ABOUT ALL THE OTHER WRITERS AND COMIC CREATORS AND SUCH WHO SELL THEIR WORKS….”
Claude literally said, ‘If you’re reading for free? Have a seat’, in response to a question on Twitter about whether or not they accept unsolicited criticism.
Response to this.
Oh yeah, they’re definitely a hypocrite when it comes to criticism. From K. M. Claude’s Twitter:
“My view: If you paid money for it [Claude’s comics], I figure ya got some right to bitch because IDC I got my cut. If you’re reading for free? Have a seat.”
The fact that they misgendered someone in the process just makes it worse.
(Anon is referring to this post)
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 pornographic 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.
