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.”
I also noticed the filename for that image on K. M. Claude’s website is dertoddler-sfw-rs.png. According to Claude, this is supposed to be a pun on ‘der Tod’ (German for ‘death’) and Toddlers in Tiaras, a show aboutlittle girlswho enter beauty pageants. I think it’s safe to assume the character was really intended to be a child, and Claude just added the age disclaimer to avoid getting in trouble.
They also refer to the character as a ‘futa’ in this post. ‘Futanari/futa’ is a slur against intersex people and trans women.

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.
Nowhere in its usage in its native language or in English is a slur. When discussing a word, I will use the word as that as the subject for discussion and unlike you I prioritize people over loan words.
Now I’m trying to remember but I do think I know which one. Regardless, if you wanna get really fun and technical and in a really awkward place for mental health everywhere, what we know about paedophilia points to it operating for all intents and purposes similar to a sexual orientation. So technically they are both legitimately forms of sexual orientation in a scientific sense of operation or rather genesis HOWEVER paedophilia hits all the qualifiers of psychological abnormality besides just being not normal – it also causes distress, is deviant, would result in dysfunctional relationships and obviously a dysfunctional sexuality, and can pose a danger. Asexuality is just abnormal (we are! We are statistically and scientifically abnormal!) Which is why we need to study paedophilia more to see if it fully operates as an orientation or something else – because the former can’t currently be changed bar chemical castration (and I wonder how or if one could chemically castrate a female bodied individual to where there’s no libido? So we’d have to study female sexual functions more too!) and the latter means we need more study to figure out wtf it is.
Science: that shit’s complex. More complex than most casual tumblr users can handle. Which is frustrating for insufferable know it all’s like me
Quit comparing asexuality to pedophilia. In fact, quit treating pedophilia like it’s a sexual orientation because that only makes pedophiles feel justified about being attracted to children.
Also, instead of describing AFAB people as ‘female-bodied’ you need to say ‘assigned female at birth’. ‘__-bodied’ implies that person is inherently male or female regardless of how they identify, which is a form of misgendering.
