“The irony being man you know antis spent so long trying to get me and others to stop making art and sure I now have severe psychological damage due to slander and harassment that can never be taken back or undone but man all they had to do was hook me and sugarbitz up from the get go rather than waiting for our friend to do so because now I’m too mentally distracted to draw.“
‘I have severe psychological damage due to slander and harassment’?! Honestly, I don’t know how K. M. Claude can accuse his critics of being professional victims when he posts things like this. Criticism isn’t a form of harassment, and Claude isn’t being slandered because the claims about him are backed up by evidence.
Besides, even if he did have psychological trauma as a result of being outed as a pedophile, it’s not reasonable to expect others to keep quiet about something that serious.
“If you call someone a monster enough, sooner or later they’ll begin to believe it despite being the farthest thing from it. If you’re not careful, some of the “monsters” you so carelessly made may begin to act monstrously and the fault will lie partly with you. And the rest of us you carelessly made believe in our nonexistent monstrosity? The many of us? Will just suffer in silence because beliefs are damn hard to change.“
#1. If you act like a monster because people are calling you one, you’ve only proven them right.
#2. People aren’t accusing K. M. Claude of being a terrible person for no reason. He’s openly admitted to being a pedophile, drawn sexual artwork of children, and harassed (Page contains depictions of blood and self-harm) people who disagree with him.
“why is a thirteen year old discoursing about sexual ships they should be on neopets not on a website whose mobile app is 17+ and which allows smut (18+ in I think Germany if I remember the screengrab @kirtlandswarbler took) if they don’t like fandom ships that for the record are older than they are for a book series that’s over half their age holy shit.
granted when i was 13 i was technically homeless and also writing about harry potter getting his ass fucked by voldemort but…c’est la vie. god kids are so ignorant y’all need to learn you some fandom history like holy fuck, i’m filled with a mix of pity and indigestion.”
Claude is referring to this post which reads, ‘Stop shipping literal kids’.
From Tumblr’s Terms of Service:
“You have to be at least 13 years old to use Tumblr. We’re serious: it’s a hard rule, based on U.S. federal and state legislation. “But I’m, like, 12.9 years old!” you plead. Nope, sorry. If you’re younger than 13, don’t use Tumblr. Ask your parents for a Playstation 4, or try books.“
13-year-olds have every right to be on Tumblr, and have every right to expect adults not to fetishize children and child abuse in fiction.
“Honestly though what I ALSO don’t get is that the issue seems to be that the evil women are fetishizing mlm due to yaoi being unrealistic and usually full of “”””gross”””” stuff like turning straights and dub-con and even non-con but like…have these lil bitches read fucking gay erotic literature or even watched a gay porno?
The answer is no because they’re all a bunch of sex repulsed babies and like I get it as I’m rather sex repulsed too but come the fuck on y’all”
Like…if yaoi is so problematic then what the fuck is gay porn then because uhhhhh shit’s full of incest and turning straight guys and loads of consent issues and usually a lot more brutal. Oh and like little story too like at least yaoi tries for some story – hell some BL series have a number of tankoubons where the sex is only a few scenes in the grander story.”
Nobody’s saying that guy-on-guy porn produced for a male audience can’t be problematic. What people (mainly men who love men) are saying is that fujoshis (female fans of the yaoi genre) need to be more careful when portraying same-gender relationships in fiction because most fujoshis are straight and therefore have straight privilege.
Also, calling sex-repulsed people babies and later claiming that trans men who love men are equivalent to straight women for being assigned female at birth is really disgusting.
“You find it dishonest because it is in fact dishonest. “Truth? What is truth? I wash my hands of this matter” and all that.”
#1. Claude rarely gets any threats. Besides, he’s an open pedophile, so obviously people are going to send him hate.
#2. People sending asks expressing disgust/disagreement/etc. over Claude’s content isn’t baiting.
#3. I’ve never victim-blamed Claude, because he’s not a victim of anything except his own foolishness.
#4. This ask also ignores the many times Claude has overreacted to genuine criticism, citing it as an example of harassment. It also ignores the times Claude has harassed people and not apologized for it (Warning: Links contain gore and self harm-baiting).
“Amen. Antishippers are abusers. Anyone who says otherwise willfully put their head in the sand (and that is it’s own disgusting behavior.)”
Critiquing fiction for glamorizing pedophilia/abuse/incest/etc. isn’t abuse, we’ve been over this already. Instead, I’d like to draw everyone’s attention this part of the original post:
“This isn’t hyperbole. Just yesterday an anti boasted about sexually harassing his 11-year-old sister because he caught her searching for Voltron porn, and about how he’d tried to convince his parents to abusively restrict her internet access.“
For those who are hesitant to click that link, an anti shipper was venting his frustration over how easily his 11-year-old sister could access pornographic Voltron fan art on Tumblr. He never harassed her or did anything to hurt her.
The fact that Claude uncritically reblogged a post citing this as an example of harassment proves he knows nothing about actual harassment. It also indicates he’s okay with minors viewing pornographic content, which is really disturbing in light of how he fetishizes them in his artwork (Porn/gore warning).
Edit: I should probably add that the person being falsely accused of sexual harassment is only 16.
“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.
