“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:
- Reblogged a post blaming minors for their sexual trauma.
- Equated being asked to stop romanticizing rape with being banned from ever discussing it, indicating that you believe romanticizing rape is an integral part of depicting it.
Sniggy: “There’s no real consensus on this in the trans community.”
K. M. 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. 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.
[“I get that people use things to cope but the shit they’re into is unhealthy as fuck. K. M. Claude’s group are so concerned with writing ‘dark fiction’ and act like people are being Puritans for not wanting people to write shit that glorifies abuse/child abuse.”]
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.

Some of my posts tagged with #pedophile or #pedophiles:
- Masterlist of pedophiles on Tumblr with Claude’s name on it [x]
- Comic where they call themselves an ‘underage kink-haver’ [x]
- Old post from Claude’s personal blog, Sadademort, where they imply they deserve a silver medal for being a pedophile [x]
- I tag posts about K. M. Claude sexualizing minors in their artwork with #pedophile or #pedophiles
So while I’ve referred to Claude as a pedophile, it’s entirely justified because they’ve implied they’re an actual pedophile, and because they fetishize minors in some of their artwork.
I agree. When people claim that fiction affects reality, they don’t mean that works of fiction or the characters depicted in them are real, they’re talking about how fictional works can encourage harmful attitudes and behaviors. For example, K. M. Claude has drawn fetish artwork of children. By posting this kind of material publicly, they create an environment where it’s normal to view children as sex objects, which attracts pedophiles.
