Update 6:40 p.m.: Reddit CEO Steve Huffman announced that is no longer employed by the company, saying “we over-indexed on protection” and that Reddit had failed its own standards in this case.
At least one mystery is solved (Ask Sucks about Chapo Trap House):
“In April 2020, Challenor wrote a public letter to Reddit that was cosigned by moderators from other boards, asking the company to crack down on trolls. Reddit responded that same day. Among the forums banned was a forum for trans people who had since detransitioned. Challenor is herself transgender.”

Among the groups banned were r/detran (trans activists hate detransitioners) and r/truelesbians (which catered for actual lesbians, as opposed to bepenised ones). …now, Reddit have put her on the payroll.”

They are the head moderator on other subreddits like /r/lgbt. ON that subreddit, you can see that all other moderators were added one month ago.
All three major “TERF blocker” extensions were made by male sex offenders.
- “The ‘Shinigami Eyes – Terf Hunter’ extension was created by Wesley “Laurelai” Bailey, a TIM who has been accused of raping multiple young women and girls, including a 14-year-old.” (Kiwi Farms receipts: https://kiwifarms.net/threads/wesley-laurelai-james-earl-bailey.18739/)
- “The “TERF Tracker” project was founded by Dennis “Allison” Woolbert, a TIM who repeatedly raped his 15-year-old stepdaughter.” (https://www.womenarehuman.com/man-hides-past-as-child-rapist-by-becoming-transgender-and-changing-name-allison-nee-dennis-woolbert/)
- “Infamous trans activist and wannabe politician Ashton “Aimee” Challenor runs “Terfblocker” on Twitter. Ashton’s father, David Challenor, was a prominent supporter of Ashton’s political campaigns and an advocate for “gender-neutral” restrooms (he also assisted in running “Terfblocker”)… David Challenor was convicted of kidnapping, torturing, and repeatedly raping a 10-year-old girl. He carried out these atrocities while wearing toddler-style dresses and diapers. He’s now in prison, but Ashton is still on Twitter.” (https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/aimee-challenor-and-the-danger-of-transgender-politics ) https://kiwifarms.net/threads/wesley-laurelai-james-earl-bailey.18739/

TLDR: This Aimee Challenor/Aimee Knight person is MtF trans, autistic, and has been a central advisor to Stonewall in formulating recommendations about trans policies, which in turn has been used to train police. Challenor was also responsible for the 2020 Reddit purge. It looks like Aimee has been groomed by a pedophile ring with diaper fetish for years. His father is in prison for sexually assaulting a 10-year old girl in his home torture chamber while wearing a diaper. Aimee was advised to transition by Mermaids. Aimee is currently in a 3-way relationship with two of his father’s friends who are 14 years older.
