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.
“Bingo. Useful term that’s been taken out back, fucked up the ass, and bastardized to hell and back. Like most social justice.”
Constantly portraying rape as desirable, romantic, sexy, etc. absolutely can normalize it. Also, I find it interesting that you downplay rape culture when you:
Sniggy: “There’s no real consensus on this in the trans community.”
Claude: “I’m gonna borrow this response if ever again I need it (as I’m not done with, as Mr. Cat calls it, Pomp-chan, and honestly ‘male futa’ is the best descriptor) because it’s true and just that simple.”
Here’s the thing – ‘futa/futanari’ is a slur. And like all slurs, you don’t call someone that unless they’ve told you they’ve reclaimed it and are okay with that.
Also FYI ‘futa’ is a slur against intersex people too.
“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. Uhhh, 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.
“I’m both shocked because why wouldn’t you ship it and not shocked because have you SEEN the purity wank and the state of fandom thanks to Tumblr lately?
Apparently, wanting fandoms to be free of content that promotes incest and pedophilia is just ‘purity wank’ now.
Go away, Claude.
“…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.
K. M. Claude posted that in response to this post (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.
(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 erotic fiction about minors being sexually abused. Claude has also created a lot of rape/incest-themed porn involving their adult characters.
