Never become a therapist, Claude.

kmclaude:

“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.

kmclaude:

“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.

“Don’t you like… hate kids?”

“I’m not a huge fan of them, no. I’d never be senselessly cruel to a child or purposefully hurt a child – or anyone, really – but I’m not a big fan.”

Just because you don’t like kids in general doesn’t mean you aren’t sexually attracted to them (For people who haven’t heard about K. M. Claude, read this list for proof that he’s a pedophile). Sexual attraction to someone doesn’t necessarily mean you want to spend time with them on a regular basis.

‘Incestuous, Pederastic Mermaids’

According to Claude, the merpeople in this proposed story have an entirely separate moral system, and also practice necrophilia. Considering the way he’s portrayed these things in the past, it feels like an excuse to promote them as fetishes.

Ah yes, the problem is those gosh darn haters, and not because pairing a minor with an adult is disgusting. *rolls eyes*

Claude really needs to re-examine their priorities..

kmclaude:

“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).

Worse Than Dahmer

kmclaude:

“WELL NOW HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO MARKET MY DIARY COMIC COLLECTION ‘WORSE THAN DAHMER’ IF I’M NO LONGER WORSE THAN A LITERAL NECROPHILIAC MINOR-FUCKING SERIAL KILLER BECAUSE I DRAW EROTIC GROTESQUE ART (ACCORDING TO SOME DUMB CUNT ON THIS SITE, A SITE WHICH IS A LOT SOMETIMES)? Man, there goes MY marketing technique.”

My exact words:

“I wouldn’t say K. M. Claude is as bad as Dahmer since Claude hasn’t killed or raped anyone.” – [x]

I never said you were as bad as Dahmer, quit lying.

Claude’s Drinking Problems

kmclaude:

“I probably am one – I go on mild benders, then stop for mooooonths, and then whoops. Which… probably fits the definition of ‘functional alcoholic’.

But I can’t use art as an outlet without being called every horrible thing in the book, harassed, abused, and treated like crap by everyone (including people I like) while the entire world around us goes to hell, so I might as well slowly kill myself and numb everything in the process. I’m just hoping I can make good enough art before that happens.”

Dude, you’ve reblogged posts blaming minors for their sexual trauma, you’ve openly longed for your own harem of little boys, and you’ve repeatedly treated your critics like crap. I don’t want to hear about how people who call you out are bullies and abusers. Also, quit blaming your critics for your drinking problems, it’s manipulative as hell.

“Claude flat-out shows how much he hates women and acts like rape culture isn’t real. How does anyone support this sick fuck?”

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.

“I’m on the ‘Rape culture is a thing, but people tend to overexaggerate it’ team and like… Fiction doesn’t encourage rape? Normalization is top-down, and it’s more reinforced by cultural gender roles than anything? Anon needs to stop drinking the Kool-Aid?”

kmclaude:

“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.
