“Dude, it’s just drawings. Who fucking cares, enjoy it. Besides, futa and cuntboys ain’t trans so please don’t feel guilty or let anyone make you feel bad for liking that shit.”
If the characters in futa/cuntboy porn aren’t supposed to be trans, then why do people see them as interchangeable with trans people? Why do people use the terms ‘futa’ and ‘cuntboy’ as slurs against trans people? Fact is, cis people who consume and produce this kind of porn are harming trans people, because they’re treating us as if our existence is inherently deviant and reducing us to a fetish.
(Also, FYI, futa/cuntboy porn harms intersex people too.)
Sniggy: “There’s no real consensus on this in the trans community.”
K. M. 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.
Here’s a good explanation taken from your original receipts blog:
”It’s [futanari/futa] considered a slur because it’s almost exclusively used in pornography to objectify [and degrade] people.
It’s a slur against intersex people because ‘futanari’ means ‘hermaphrodite’
in Japanese. ‘Hermaphrodite’ is a slur against intersex people.
It’s a slur against trans women and trans-feminine people because people
often use it to describe trans women/trans-feminine people in a demeaning way.”
