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 erotic fiction about minors being sexually abused. Claude has also created a lot of rape/incest-themed porn involving their adult characters.
Rape kink. I know, pretty mild and common place but I just love it, whether it’s brutal and violent or an almost tongue in cheek ravishment fantasy. Hell I even love the troperific “don’t ” becoming “don’t stop” that is seen so often in yaoi.

Sada, you’re about to get a punch-card for submissions to this blog. 3 more confessions and I’ll have to reward you for blog-loyalty or something! Also, the rape/ravishment thing is GREAT, another one of those “foundations” that leads into bigger and badder kinks, usually, I’d say. Also the whole “captor/victim” thing which is an entirely new dynamic with its own realm of possibilities. Fun! Thanks for the great submission and happy shipping!
Confession sent by K. M. Claude to the Tumblr blog, dirty-shipping-confessions.
Content warnings for explicit depictions of pedophilia, sexual depictions of children, child abuse, rape, sexual abuse, blood, gore, necrophilia, incest; harassment, bullying, self-harm, victim-shaming/survivor-shaming, transphobia, transmisogyny, dyadism¹ᵃ/perisexism¹ᵇ, and misgendering.
Frankly it’s the similar ass backwards logic that says men are always the agressors or that women can never abuse/rape a man. It’s this idea that one demographic group by virtue of being in that demographic can never do wrong. Which is…really…fucked up, to be honest. It’s how really heinous abuse goes unreported – because the victim is seen as incapable of being a victim by virtue of their mere being (with contrast to their abuser). Hell, why you think clergymen in many religions get away with illicit sex? Because we socially want to believe that by virtue of the profession or vocation they would NEVER, would somehow be UNABLE to. It’s dangerous thinking to presume some group is inherently predisposed to be an abuser or to be abused (exclusively, no overlap!) by virtue of age, race, gender, sexuality, profession, etc. That’s how you get abusers flying under the radar.
Sorry but a child cannot abuse or rape an adult. That is literally an excuse used by child abusers and rapists to justify harming their victims. Also, having a mental illness/being neurodivergent, being a survivor of trauma, or being disabled doesn’t justify abusing or raping minors (Or anyone else for that matter).
