Well maybe if Claude didn’t say the comic was self-referential, and maybe if they didn’t draw porn of children (NSFW), or call themself an ‘underage kink-haver’, people wouldn’t have come to that conclusion.
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.
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/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.
Uploaded from this ask.
Content warnings: Anti-intersex, transphobic slurs, explicit artwork of a character who appears to be underage
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.
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’.
- Update: Archived version because Claude removed ‘shota’ from the description.
”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.
