Never become a therapist, Claude.

“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.

Quit using sex abuse scandals as your shield.

“but also i’m reminded of that one iconic moment from america’s next top model where this one girl is like sobbing and throwing a tantrum over a missed cab and one of the models goes “I just wanna tell you that some people have war in their countries” – like there are literal child and teen molestation scandals coming out like we time traveled to goddamn 2002 and 2003 with the Catholic Church scandals and then Michael Jackson’s scandals but hey, you know, harassing a queer indie artist who creates content specifically about how abuse fucks you up (so, you know, abuse is bad is the only logical conclusion) is really sticking it to the man and helping people.”

There’s a lot to unpack here. Content warnings for pornographic artwork of children and K. M. Claude defending pedophilia.

  • You’re using the ‘Appeal to worse problems‘ fallacy. Just because there are sexual abuse scandals going on right now doesn’t mean people can’t care about Internet pedophiles like you.
    • Also, people have every right to be concerned since the line between a non-offending pedophile and a child molester is razor-thin.
  • Warning others that someone is a pedophile or criticizing someone’s art isn’t harassment.
    • Also, specifying that you’re a queer artist every time someone calls you out for pedophilia makes it sound like you think being attracted to kids is just like being queer.

“tbh it is frightening because I find myself having to fight a new instinct to just roll my eyes when people not only get accused en masse for sex crimes but even get convicted of/proven guilty of/admit to it because it’s like “okay when this headline says ‘child pornography arrest’ do they mean completely legal loli manga or stupid GF fanart or actual CP” and then I click the headline and am like oh right this is the somewhat sane, real world where words DO have meaning!”

If you roll your eyes and act like it’s not a big deal when someone gets arrested for possessing child porn, that’s your problem. Also, you might want to get acquainted with the phrase, ‘simulated child porn’.

Honestly, I’m not surprised Claude is acting like this, considering they’ve drawn pornographic artwork of children (Album is explicit).

EphebOphelia

kmclaude:

“Maybe it’s because I’m a virgin, and so painfully inexperienced and feel a tad juvenile about it. Maybe I watched too many true crime shows in between seeing some heinous crimes unfold on the news as a pubescent child. Maybe it’s because I’m queer and history and literature is full of older males and their adolescent beloveds in a limbo of tolerance – even acceptance – and taboo, and by God it spoke to me as a queer child who was always just barely tolerated due to his morbid fascination with the taboo, or maybe it’s because I’m a trans man and lucky to even be pegged as a teenage boy. Or maybe I’m simply fascinated by taboo, forbidden fruit.”

Warning: Comic contains nudity.

This comic is part of a series of comics titled ‘EphebOphelia’. According to K. M. Claude, the ‘ephebe’ (as in ‘ephebophile’) in ‘EphebOphelia’ is self-referential, which means this comic is trying to justify Claude’s pedophilia by linking it to same-gender relationships and transness.

Before anyone accuses me of not giving him the benefit of the doubt, I’d like to point out that this man has made comics where he calls himself an ‘underage kink-haver’ and longs for ‘a harem of shotas’, has drawn grotesque sexual artwork of children, and confessed to fantasizing about children and teenagers being manipulated for sex.

There’s nothing radical about being a pedophile.

I like that on some level I’m being put on the same tier as @roachpatrol, because I can only hope to one day be as rad.

Why Can’t We Care About Both?

“#I’ll stop w the reblogs but yall….y’all hand to god I’ve had moments where I read news articles #about actual child molesters ans actual cp and upon reading the headline there was a moment I thought #‘what bad fanart did this person look at now’ before reading and it’s like no this was real abuse of kids #what I’m getting at is people have made this word no longer have meaning #and that is terrifying #DID NONE OF YOU DUMB LITTLE FUCKS READ THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF?!?!?! #Apparently NOT because even toddlers know that if you LIE no one will believe you or anyone when one day it’s true #when you say everything is cp or everything is pedophilia when it’s NOT ypu make it harder for those #who have been exploited in cp or abused or raped by child molesters to get justice”

No one is denying that porn of real children is worse than pornographic artwork of children. Stop using the sexual exploitation of children as a shield for your own gross behavior.

For those not familiar with Claude, they’ve drawn pornographic artwork of children before (Link is very NSFW).

“I swear Claude and their crew think the phrase ‘Fiction can affect reality’ means that it is reality and that isn’t true. They just don’t wanna own up to their own bullshit.”

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.

“I found where K. M. works, as well as a photo. As they’ve broken the law, should I report them to the police?”

Honestly, you probably should. When you file your report, be sure to include this information:

  • Claude has violated 18 U.S. Code § 1466A, which bans artwork, sculptures, cartoons, etc. depicting minors in sexual scenarios when that content lacks artistic, scientific, literary, or political value.

Content warnings for explicit depictions of the following: gore, dismemberment, pedophilia, sexualized children, and child sex abuse.

I. Fetishizes children and child abuse

II. Defends pedophiles and pedophilia

  • Believes children can abuse adults.
    • This is a common argument used by child abusers to justify harming their victims.
  • Thinks it’s okay for adults to be attracted to 15- and 16-year-olds.
  • Believes it’s ableist to shame pedophiles for their desires.
    • Also believes that pedophilia is a mental illness.
    • According to the DSM-5, pedophiles only qualify as mentally ill if they feel genuine remorse for their attraction to children. Since most pedophiles don’t feel bad about these desires, they aren’t considered mentally ill simply for being pedophiles.
  • Compares pedophilia to asexuality.
  • Also this.

III. Nasty Fetishes

IV. Belittles and bullies their critics

V. Transphobia/Dyadism/Perisexism
