So you're not allowed to talk about a public figure anymore

~But it's doxxing~

Of a public figure, doing interviews and being promoted by Reddit as their new admin.

What we have is someone personally connected to one proven pedophile rapist and another person who wrote borderline CP (dad and hubby) who isn't distancing themselves from either, in any way.

Which is odd to say the least. Most non pedos are so horrified they ditch pedo rapist family members. If not totally at least publicly. But no, Chanellor actually helped his dad get a job with him.

Which makes you wonder if all three share the same...tastes.

So expecting this to end up with police carrying off his hard drive someday.

And this guy is modding subs for kids.

Edit: Reddit is peaking the hell out over this.

Not just those three. "Aimee's" story has been well-known for a couple years now. The reddit admins that pushed to get him hired knew what happened when they were making that push. My guess is that if you arrested the reddit staff that advocated for "Aimee" and examined their hard drives, it wouldn't just be "Aimee" that would be going to prison.

I suspect at least one of the well known TW mods on Reddit has a stash of cp. It gets posted to subs they want shut down to easily.

This practice didn't originate from reddit and it won't be confined to reddit. It's part of a broader trend where leftist authoritarians are attempting to restrict access to impactful and relevant information.

They aren't trying, they're succeeding. How many people knew about Hunter Biden's history with selling political access before the 2020 election?

[–]RedEyedWarrior 39 insightful - 1 fun39 insightful - 0 fun40 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Read the wiki article about him. This man and is family are a trainwreck. I don’t know how he’s allowed to be involved in politics. Or allowed to move to the United States - scratch that, it doesn’t surprise me now that I think about it when they’ve let Amos Yee in.

Of course Reddit protects this Ashton Knight fella. Reddit admins defend paedophiles all the time. Remember: r/AgainstHateSubreddits routinely posts CP on subreddits that they target. So the mods of AHS possess CP. And have gotten away with it so far.

Just looking at him, he's clearly the sort of person only pedophiles would associate. He's like 3x more pedo-looking than Jared Fogle.

Based on their response I assume it's a man pretending to be a woman and acting like a massive cunt?

[–]Tine 15 insightful - 1 fun15 insightful - 0 fun16 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Yes. I had to do my own research and I kept getting confused why every article was a picture of an obvious man.

  1. Every article says "she," "her," "woman," "female." When you can see the truth in front of your eyes.

I dont give a fuck about trans pronoun whining - trans are like almost zero % of the population and they are dominating a lot of media - Fuck them, let them do what they want, but I do need to hear about it.

The trans community is to the pedos of nowadays what the Church was to the pedos of the 1950s: a safe heaven that allows them to operate and if anyone points a finger, the whole social shaming goes against that person.

Those fuckers used to done a roman collar, now they just put on a whig and pretend they're women, and god forbids if you call on their actions, they'll brand you transphobic.

Just permanently banned on Reddit for posting a link to information of Ashton/Aimee, her partner and her wicked pedo father. The truth is so twisted. People!! Must wake up to “Why” is Reddit allowing these child predators to be moderators (ghiselle Maxwell) Sick World

[–][deleted] 21 insightful - 3 fun21 insightful - 2 fun22 insightful - 3 fun -  (5 children)

Don't address these sick men with female pronouns, they are men and should be addressed as such. Calling them she/her is lying and following their nonsensical ideology. If these men sexually assaulted women would you call them women sexually assaulting women and she/her? You don't give this nonsensical ideology an inch, they take the whole mile. This is not reddit, you can speak the truth here.

[–]Drewski 21 insightful - 1 fun21 insightful - 0 fun22 insightful - 1 fun -  (7 children)

Just to sum up, one of the women/politicians mentioned in the article is a recently hired Reddit admin, who permanently banned anyone posting an article critical of her (even though she is a public figure). Article doesn't mention she is a Reddit admin or anything else concerning Reddit.

She also hired her father, who is a convicted pedophile who kept a young boy chained in his attic sex dungeon, as her agent, after he was arrested. She also married a self-admitted pedophile and later defended him, when his disgusting behavior was discovered.

This is where reddit's "anti-evil" policies lead.

What that article didn't mention is that David Challenor was dressed as a little girl and made his victim call him by a girl's name during the rape.

He's trans as well by any current definition.

[–]PassionateIntensity 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

~Call me LUCY~. I don't want to make the victim any more identifiable but there was an incest angle too.

[–]jet199 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)


I think we've all worked out there's an incest angle with Aimee and his brother too.

Likely they only got love as children if they enacted certain behaviour and roles and then they look for love the same way in adulthood as well.

Just because she has a penis and grew up as a boy is no reason for you to be jealous that people care more about men who identify as women than biological women. /s

Yeah but even other trans don't get this.

Rachel McKinnon/Veronica Ivy got sacked recently and it was partly because he was going out with a paedo.

When you hear how people in the Green Party and Lib Dems who worked with him talk about Aimee it's just plain weird.

As expected, Reddit admins have issued a non-committal response about the situation:

Hilariously, subreddits are going private in protest:

Surprisingly, yes. She needs PR support. That is the most horribly skewed Wiki record I've seen in a while. (It should be mainly about her, rather than her father, who might be mentioned instead further down-page.) She is being attacked. I know almost nothing about her, but the attack is obviously professional and meant to keep her out of politics, as much as possible.

The Spectator has since found out about all this eDrama, and written an article on it.

Well done Aimee, I never heard of you before yesterday and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Article follows...

What's going on over at Reddit? The popular chatroom, which bills itself as 'the front page of the internet', has been accused of blocking Spectator articles. Earlier this week, the most popular UK politics page was suspended from public view and users who posted a link to a Spectator article were blocked.

The article in question mentions one Aimee Challenor, a former ‘rising star’ of the Green party and transgender activist, who left the party in disgrace after she appointed her father — a violent paedophile — as her election agent.

According to the moderators on the Reddit group r/UKPolitics, Aimee has since been hired by the tech firm, which is now zealously blocking content about her. One Redditor who posted a Spectator article containing a brief mention of Challenor found themselves mysteriously 'suspended’ from Reddit.

That user was subsequently reinstated after r/UKPolitics raised concerns with the tech company. As the moderators put it, 'It later became apparent that Reddit has hired this individual as a Reddit admin, and were banning people from discussing her past to protect their employee from harassment.' Mr S put the allegations to Reddit — that Challenor is now working at the company and using her position to have unfavourable articles removed. Their spokesperson told me:

“ Earlier this month, a Reddit employee was the target of harassment and doxxing (sharing of personal or confidential information). Reddit activated standard processes to protect the employee from such harassment, including initiating an automated moderation rule to prevent personal information from being shared. The moderation rule was too broad, and our systems suspended a moderator who posted content that was perceived to include personal information. After investigating the situation, we reinstated the moderator the same day. We are continuing to review all the details of the situation to ensure that we protect users and employees from doxxing — including those who may have a public profile — without mistakenly taking action on non-violating content. Was the censorship purely automatic or did Challenor play a role in Reddit's removal of damaging information about her? The article itself, by Julie Bindel, only mentions her in passing. Whatever 'systems' Reddit was using seem to have removed any link to that article and banned any person who posted it. Bear in mind that the information about Challenor wasn't posted on Reddit itself but on The Spectator's own website. Mr S has some doubts over whether it really was the 'system' that was doing the deleting and blocking...

It is worth mentioning too just how disturbing the allegations about Aimee and her father are. Back in 2018, she quit the Greens after it emerged she had hired her father, David Challenor, as her election agent despite the fact he been charged with 22 sexual offences. These charges included the rape and torture of a 10-year-old girl, something Aimee neglected to tell the party. The details of that abuse are horrific; they include the child being suspended from the attic rafters as Aimee's father — dressed in a nappy — carried out his sadistic sexual crimes.

He was jailed for 22 years after being found guilty of 20 of those 22 offences. Aimee subsequently quit the party and accused the Greens of transphobia against her. At the time she said:

“ I cannot be held responsible for the actions of my father. I am not to blame for his behaviour. Yes, he was my election agent. This was one of a number of ways I was seeking to reconcile my relationship with my father after coming out of care. On reflection, I can understand that it was unacceptable for me to appoint my dad as my election agent when he had been arrested. She then briefly joined the Coventry Liberal Democrats — and was promptly suspended by Lib Dem head office after yet another paedophile scandal. A social media account belonging to her partner, Nathaniel Knight, admitted to having written 'smut featuring minors’, among other sordid horrors. The unfortunate Aimee condemned the messages, saying her partner’s account had been hacked and announcing she was quitting politics.

Mr S has attempted to get in contact with Aimee but to no avail. In the meantime, anyone looking to know more about her past behaviour can read this piece by Melanie McDonagh — or you can read the offending Julie Bindel article here...

It was obvious from day 1 for me that TERF was another name for protectors of children. If you can infiltrate the schools, online forums, therapists office you can take the children. Mothers are strongest enemy of paedophiles. The UK Mumsnet is the source of activists.

More men than women are raped, but it's funny because male victims are in jail, so that's hilarious right?

As for slavery, I don't recall many pics of female slaves picking the cotton or doing heavy labor?

Perhaps you're one of those who mistakes women selling pussy (dealers) as 'oppressed' and the marks being taken advantage (addicts) of as the 'oppressors'? I'm guessing you're one of those shitwits that thinks when a man is forced to pay allthemoney to a woman that broke her side of the marriage contract, that this is "oppression of women" huh? Or even "slavery"?

Nah, women are just people, nothing special, and not deserving of some special rare unicorn protected status.

At the Green party spring conference this weekend, a motion which sought to introduce a party policy on women’s sex-based rights was defeated. A whopping 289 delegates (out of 521) voted to not include biological females in the party’s list of oppressed groups.

All the motion aimed to do was simply add a paragraph to the Green party’s ‘Our Rights and Responsibilities Policy’. The motion reads:

“‘This is to include the protected characteristic of sex as currently our Record of Policy statements supports the other eight characteristics (age, disability, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, race, maternity, religion/belief, marriage/civil partnership) but not that of sex discrimination – aimed primarily at women…’

The motion was opposed because, in essence, it is considered ‘transphobic’ to recognise that women are targeted by male oppression precisely because of their female sex.

The Green party leader Sian Berry, who has declared that she wishes London to be the most ‘trans inclusive’ city in the world, seemed to see this as a victory. In a series of tweets following the vote, Berry stated: ‘Motion E01 was defeated. My party voted for inclusive women’s rights and someone is having a big old cry. Thank you Greens!’ Berry signed off with, ‘Vote for inclusion and kindness!’

But by voting against the motion, the Green party has effectively contradicted the 2010 Equalities Act, which includes sex as a protected characteristic. In their rush to be ‘inclusive’ the Greens have ended up excluding 51 per cent of the population.

Other anti-women motions passed at the conference include the support for self-identification, which would enable trans people to declare themselves as the opposite sex without the need for any medical intervention, and for trans parents to be recognised on their child’s birth certificate as father, mother or parent, such as in the case of Freddy McConnell, a trans man who wishes to be the legal ‘father’ of the baby he gave birth to.

The Green’s record on women’s rights is a disgraceful one. In 2019 its Regional Council (GPRC) announced the appointment of the two new co-chairs, describing them as ‘Self identifying Non-Male Co-Chair: (female)’ and ‘Self identifying Non-Female Co-Chair: (male)’.

The party explained that, ‘to specify that the chairs must be a “man” and a “woman” would exclude people who have non-binary or other identities, and we want the roles to be open to everyone.’ I asked if, to ensure that lesbians were not excluded, they would also advertise for ‘non-male non-heterosexuals’ but did not receive a response.

The Green party leadership has long capitulated to the trans Taliban. Take Caroline Lucas, the former Greens leader. Prior to 2016 Lucas steadfastly supported the feminist campaign to criminalise paying for sex as a way to deter men from creating the demand for prostitution. She told me back in 2008 that she wanted to see an end to the sex trade because she understood it to be exploitative of women and a barrier to equality. But in 2016, having been told off by trans activist Paris Lees (who is of the view that feminists that campaign to end prostitution are posh, white prudes) Lucas did an about turn, offered to meet up with Lees, and has since supported the campaign to decriminalise pimps, brothel owners and punters.

I spoke to a serving member of the Green party executive (who asked not to be named) minutes after EO1 was defeated. She tells me that, ‘Women are set to leave the Green Party in droves. For a significant number, this is the final straw.’

‘The planet is burning,’ another senior party member tells me, ‘but you would think they would pay more attention to that than bloody pronouns.’

Another senior official thanked me for covering the story but told me that even ‘liking a tweet by you would get me excommunicated’.

The Green party is destroying itself in an effort to capitulate to bullies. The likes of Sian Berry refuse to recognise that extreme transgender ideology is simply misogyny thinly disguised as progressive politics. Last year, Scottish Green MSP Andy Wightman resigned from the party following threats to expel him after he had the nerve to attend a public meeting on women’s rights at which I spoke. Wightman accused the party of being ‘very censorious of any deviation from an agreed line.’

we should really create a decentralized forum.

Funny, I was using reddit the last few days, thinking I got around the super ban status, and while I was there I heard nothing about this until this morning.

Many subs are also going private...does that even solve anything??

It was my understanding that the subs are going private as a boycott. If you visit one of the private subs, you get redirected to a page that explains it:

what does making the subs go private do to hurt reddit? Does it make their stock plummet? Ads? Just curious because I don't get the angle. Would it make a bigger impact if they all left somewhere else?

I think it's the advertising angle. People can't see ads of they can't see reddit.

I do think it would be a bigger impact if they left reddit, but there aren't ton of safe alternatives.

I hope something comes of this protest. First they censored and deleted SuperStraight, and now 2 weeks later they defend a pedophile apologist on their payroll. Doesn't look good.
