Recently spotted on Twitter and reported today

@ bunifoosh
This is Aimee Challenor’s partner. This needs reported (to the police preferably).

mobile.twitter.com/bunifoosh/status/1150864993761595392

Bunifosh is posting inresponse to a thread started by Nathaniel Knight @ kharonalpua (Aimees’ partner)

mobile.twitter.com/kharonalpua/status/1150825601156227072

And lastly
Nathaniels’ post was because poster Whistleblower11097 posted on a current MN thread - www.mumsnet.com/Talk/womens_rights/3635063-Challenor-on-LBC-this-morning?msgid=88567343
That post as been deleted

The content highlighted by bunifosh is worrying, but of greater concern is the thread from Nathaniel as it’s direct from the horses mouth, and admits to child rape fantasies, inappropriate communication with a minor, etc.

Aimee Challenor (from wiki)
Aimee Challenor (born 1 October 1997) is a British politician and transgender activist and former spokesperson for the Green Party of England and Wales. In 2017, she stood for election in Coventry South, receiving 1.3% of the votes. In 2018, her father, who had been serving as her election agent, was convicted and jailed for sexual offences against a child, leading to Challenor's suspension from the party during an investigation. She later resigned and is currently a member of the Liberal Democrats.

Aimee has been dragged into this as Nathaniel tweeted in the above linked thread
“So how can @ AimeeChallenor work with vulnerable teenagers when she's in a relationship with me? I don't have a violent bone in my body, and I have no interest in real children. In more than half of my lifetime, I have not "graduated" from a fetish for fantasy children to...”

The optics are not good for Aimee or the Liberal Democrats.

Oooft. Lovely.

I wonder if AC will cry transphobia when AC's pervert yank doesn't get let in the UK? The visa requirements are tight. You need to earn quite a good salary and it costs thousands to get a partner in.

JustAnotherWoman · 16/07/2019 09:02

Honestly this surprises no one here and won't be a surprise to the LibDems, they are a lost cause. They let Cyril Smith continue with impunity for decades.

People did contact them with concerns about AC and were dismissed. All we can do Re LibDems lack of morals is keep the proof for the inevitable inquiry Angry

One of the replies to him sums it up neatly “that’s a lot of words to tell us you’re a nonce”

I agree that people with dangerous or inappropriate obsessions can be vulnerable, because in cases like this they are sadly extremely useful to those in more powerful and influential positions to further a particular agenda. AC did not get so much influence by being very knowledgeable about environmental issues and green policy.

Vulnerable people can also be extremely dangerous, to themselves and others. That is why we have rules and codes of practice that keep them and others away from causing or coming to harm.

Those regulations and rules are being eroded, greyed out and shifted in emphasis - eg the NSPCC definition of abuse and the queer theory entering schools and LGBTQ education. Twitters own policies enable MAPs to openly meet and talk, while censuring women talking about their rights and protections.

I agree that unless there is a huge push back, we will see a significant change in society’s view of children in the near future.

Let's hope UK Immigration google Nathaniel Knight and end up reading those screenshots here.

Total coincidence they'd choose to go to a family centred space.

And after all, his fantasies of adult and child, and child and child sex, are just fantasies.

Total coincidence they'd choose to go to a family centred space.

Mitebiteatnite · 16/07/2019 09:21

Every single day I read something and think 'it can't get any worse surely, something will be done about it' And then the next day I read something worse.

I honestly believe that one day we will all look back and say 'can you believe it was allowed to go on for so long?' But until then all we can do is keep drawing attention to the issue, in the hope that someone, somewhere with some real power and a voice takes a stand.

I feel helpless, but not hopeless. If we don't have hope, what the fuck else have we got?

Also a total coincidence that aimee. Likes to wear nappies and suck dummies playing out adult baby fantasies.

Total coincidence. And totally not weird or strange in anyway shape or form

Ha! Feels odd that I ‘made’ KF TimeLady

I actually checked there before posting Blush and there was nothing at the time.

It's a shame Whistleblower's post didn't make it into the KF archives .

As Mr Knight is clearly not embarrassed by it, and has responded to it, I don't see why MNHQ can't reinstate it for the record, as it would then put his Twitter response into context too.

TheBigBallOfOil · 16/07/2019 10:17

Re NK being autistic - the vulnerabilities of people with autism are a big part of the reason why boundaries around what is and is not appropriate sexually need to be maintained. As the parent of a boy with ASD. I worry a lot about what exposure to online porn and genderist propaganda might do to him. If he sees it online he’s going to think it’s true/ normal. He hasn’t got the social understanding to filter outside influence through.

Prawnofthepatriarchy · 16/07/2019 10:19

Thank you for giving those details, BoreOfWhabylon. I've reported those Tweets.

Prawnofthepatriarchy · 16/07/2019 10:25

Regarding this guy being autistic, he seems to be able to carry on a transatlantic relationship with Aimee Challenor so pretty able. You have to be very vulnerable indeed to not be liable for criminal charges.

I've recently been diagnosed with ASD and dyspraxia. I'm still finding out precisely how it affects me but I'm happy to report that I have never fantasied about child rape. So I'm assuming it's not mandatory.

GirlDownUnder · 16/07/2019 10:29

TimeLady or we could @ Whistleblower11097 to this thread and ask them directly, but reminding them to be mindful of the posting rules, etc?

I've searched and Whistleblower11097 has only made that one post.

I mean, if you look at most convicted paedophiles, most of them could be considered ‘vulnerable’ in some way. It’s sad, but immaterial.

Also, yet another link between online fandom/fanfic subculture and TRAs. I think there’s a lot to see there, for those willing to look.

I used to write fanfic in the early 00s, as did many mainly socially-anxious, introverted, fiction-loving teens whose present day equivalent now are all over Tumblr being non-binary. Back then it was identification with characters rather than as literal biological realities.

Fandom used to be a bit safer/saner with a strong emphasis on ‘don’t mix your IRL name with your fandom handle’ and ‘if you’re going to write questionably consensual, underage or illegal content, be circumspect about where you share it’. That seems to have gone out of the window in the name of ‘acceptance without exception’. We all knew what we were doing was a bit odd, and while there was a tide of dreck, wingfic, mpreg etc, there were older, thoughtful writers tackling difficult stuff through fic without glorifying or condoning it. Warnings culture was a big deal.

While exposure is in the public interest in some cases, like this one, I do feel bad for younger fandommers who will have been writing in this environment, ie everything you can imagine is fine and it’s fine to spill it all over the Internet easily linkable to your real identity. They’ve basically rendered themselves unemployable and potentially had a knock-on effect on friends and family.

Well it adds a new perspective to the whole "little girls want to marry their Daddy" idea, doesn't it... Hmm
