When did I ever deadname K. M. Claude? The only reason I have his older aliases listed on this blog is because some of the receipts on him involve content posted under those names. Specifically, the only place I have Claude’s old aliases listed is here.
I don’t think K. M. Claude realizes how harmful slurs are. He thinks that if he personally isn’t offended by something, no else is allowed to be.
- Claude has repeatedly used the term futa/futanari in reference to porn, even though many people have told him that it’s a slur against trans women and intersex people. [x], [x], [x]
- He also tried to argue that ‘futa’ and ‘cuntboy’ had nothing to do with trans people, even though many people use those words as slurs against trans people.
- He thinks trans men can call themselves dykes. [x], [x], [x]
- Claude never tags or warns for slurs when he uses them in his posts.
From the post in question:
“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.)
“Well again what I or anyone believes or doesn’t believe doesn’t much matter. What ultimately matters is how we treat each other. It sucks that their belief upset you but honestly, who cares what they think if when the chips are down they act justly – if say they meet someone who identifies as nonbinary and asks for gender neutral pronouns and they acquiesce.”
Claude’s response to someone asking if they think non-binary people are valid.
If someone thinks non-binary people aren’t valid, they probably aren’t going to treat them with respect or use the correct pronouns. Excusing bigotry with ‘That’s just their beliefs’ only enables it.
“Maybe it’s because I’m a virgin, and so painfully inexperienced and feel a tad juvenile about it. Maybe I watched too many true crime shows in between seeing some heinous crimes unfold on the news as a pubescent child. Maybe it’s because I’m queer and history and literature is full of older males and their adolescent beloveds in a limbo of tolerance – even acceptance – and taboo, and by God it spoke to me as a queer child who was always just barely tolerated due to his morbid fascination with the taboo, or maybe it’s because I’m a trans man and lucky to even be pegged as a teenage boy. Or maybe I’m simply fascinated by taboo, forbidden fruit.”
Warning: Comic contains nudity.
This comic is part of a series of comics titled ‘EphebOphelia’. According to K. M. Claude, the ‘ephebe’ (as in ‘ephebophile’) in ‘EphebOphelia’ is self-referential, which means this comic is trying to justify Claude’s pedophilia by linking it to same-gender relationships and transness.
Before anyone accuses me of not giving him the benefit of the doubt, I’d like to point out that this man has made comics where he calls himself an ‘underage kink-haver’ and longs for ‘a harem of shotas’, has drawn grotesque sexual artwork of children, and confessed to fantasizing about children and teenagers being manipulated for sex.
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.
Response to this.
Oh yeah, they’re definitely a hypocrite when it comes to criticism. From K. M. Claude’s Twitter:
“My view: If you paid money for it [Claude’s comics], I figure ya got some right to bitch because IDC I got my cut. If you’re reading for free? Have a seat.”
The fact that they misgendered someone in the process just makes it worse.
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]
Content warnings for misgendering, explicit discussion of rape, forced pregnancy and abortion, mentions of child porn, and pedophilia
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.
