“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.
“Anyone who says that slutty (Catholic) school girl costumes (for Halloween or for the boudoir) are sexualizing ~actual children~ have never worn a goddamn school uniform and have never met a uniform-wearing Catholic middle or high school girl ever in their lives.”
Okay, but the intent behind it is bad because you’re still romanticizing the idea of a sexualized child. Also, did it ever occur to you that some of the people complaining about this are actual kids who have to wear school uniforms?
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.

Something nasty I saw on K. M. Claude’s new Twitter account:
Content warnings for gore, dismemberment, and nude, sexualized artwork of children.
K. M. Claude seems to have the mindset of, ‘Other people are doing this thing, so that makes it okay’. Like, no, other peoples’ bad behavior doesn’t cancel out their bad behavior.
Also, I think part of the problem is Claude surrounds themself with people who either a.) sexualize minors in their own works, or b.) support and consume media that sexualizes minors, so their opinion of what’s acceptable is pretty warped.
[“Every time I see ‘Aged up art/fic means you find a child character sexy, you monster’ I age up 10 years. Death is near. Sweet death.”]
Pretty sure those people are talking about aging a child character up specifically for the purpose of drawing porn of them, which a.) is pretty creepy and b.) something you should feel ashamed about.
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.
Content warnings: Anti-intersex, transphobic slurs, explicit artwork of a character who appears to be underage
I agree, that character definitely doesn’t look like an adult. Compare this concept sketch of the character in question with the finished version.
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 about little girls who 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.
[Anonymous: “You have been reported. I hope they lock your account.”]
You’re upsetting the dementors and entirely ruining Voldemort Day.
Still, rather hard to report anything when all smut and nudity is explicitly drawn as AND textually informed to be 18 and up…unless, that is, you’re false reporting which is more likely to get you in trouble.
Then explain the following:
- This drawing of Voldemort feeling up Harry Potter. There’s no ‘All Characters are 18+’ disclaimer so I’m assuming he’s supposed to be underage in this.
- This is described as ‘mild shota’.
From Tumblr’s community guidelines:
”Harm to Minors. Be thoughtful when posting anything involving a minor. Don’t post or solicit anything relating to minors that is sexually suggestive or violent.”
These rules apply to both fictional and live action depictions.
