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.”
Here’s the thing – ‘futa/futanari’ is a slur. And like all slurs, you don’t call someone that unless they’ve told you they’ve reclaimed it and are okay with that.
Also FYI ‘futa’ is a slur against intersex people too.
Looks like Claude’s defending slurs again. Specifically, they made a comic where they say they look like a dyke. People pointed out that it was inappropriate for men to use to that word in reference to themselves.
Accused lesbians of making this all about them, even though ‘dyke’ is a slur against lesbians. [x]
Accused people of personally attacking them for pointing out that men shouldn’t refer to themselves as dykes. [x]
Claimed only cis lesbians have a problem with this. [x]
This is transphobic because it’s erasing trans lesbians.
To make things worse, K. M. Claude accused everyone who had a problem with this of being a TERF. [x]
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.
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.
