When Reddit was finally forced to fire Aimee Challenor, one of its biggest LGBT communities, r/lgbt, was made private. Consequently, only members could access that community and it was hidden from public scrutiny.
It’s probable that the r/lgbt moderators made their community private due to the fallout from the Aimee Challenor scandal. Prior to being employed as a Reddit admin, Aimee was one of the senior moderators at sub-reddit r/lgbt. And one of Aimee’s very close friends, Nekosune (aka Peter ‘Katrina’ Swales, pictured below in his younger days) was the head moderator.
When r/lgbt finally made its much anticipated ‘full statement of transparency’, it failed to address a number of very important issues:
Aimee is married to paedophile Nathaniel Knight.
The r/lgbt former head moderator, Swales/Nekosune, has a very close relationship with both Nathaniel Knight and Aimee and there is strong evidence to suggest they were, and possibly still are, in a polyamorous relationship.
The Minecraft server run by r/lgbt which Swales/Nekosune set up with Aimee for members aged 13 and over. There are surely safeguarding implications to address here given that Aimee and Swales/Nekosne were operating a site for minors.
Furthermore, no information was offered about whether or not filters are still being used by the r/lgbt subreddit to remove ‘undesirable’ content e.g. posts that include negative internet articles about Aimee, etc.
Instead of accepting responsibility for the Aimee situation and apologising to users, r/lgbt moderators are playing the victim. Background checks are called ‘doxxing’ and members are being censored rather than being allowed to discuss the issues openly. Why is that?
Below is the current list of r/lgbt moderators. Swales/Nekosune appears to have left the team.
But who is RPANOfficerSnoo?
RPANOfficeSnoo has little post history but, as can be seen from archive.org, even some of that has been deleted. Yet, whoever this is, they have full permissions.
An internet archive demonstrates that RPANOfficerSnoo is posting in r/nekosune (ie Swales/Nekosune’s private subreddit). They are also interacting with u/isnottheimposter which is Aimee Challenor’s admin account name. If there is any possibility that RPANOfficerSnoo is Swales/Nekosune and he is still moderating r/lgbt under an alias, Reddit really needs to investigate.
Whatever the truth of Swales/Nekosune’s involvement, ‘Fionacat’, ie Charles A. Brown (pictured below), remains an r/lgbt moderator.
And it appears r/lgbt members aren’t allowed to question his being an appropriate moderator of this community.
Brown/Fionacat, known as ‘Feefers’ or Fiona Lovecraft on some sites, also has a close relationship with both Aimee Challenor and Swales/Nekosune and is pictured below with the latter.
Brown/Fionacat is now trying to distance himself from Aimee and play down their previous relationship. When questioned on Reddit he claims he never even met Aimee.
But Brown/Fionacat not only met Aimee, he clearly had a very close relationship with him.
Here is ‘Feefers’ aka Brown/Fionacat, describing Challenor as the “naughtiest cub” he ever met. This was in May 2015 when Aimee was only sixteen years old.
In the tweet below, from November 2014, he is talking to Aimee around the time when, still only a teenager, it’s likely Aimee embarked on a polyamorous sexual relationship with Nathaniel Knight and Swales/Nekosune.
In May 2015, Aimee (Cassie Lovecraft / Troublepup) tweeted that he was with ‘Feefers’ (Brown/Fionacat) and Swales/Nekosune “At a Ikklespace time”. (For the uninitiated, Ikklespace.net is “A Place for your inner child to roam free… a site for all those with an inner child, be they boy, girl or baby, to come and find like-minded people''.)
A few months later, in this blog post on the fetish site, Fur Affinity, ‘Runt’ (ie Brown/Fionacat) describes how he and Swales/Nekosune stayed with Aimee Challenor at Aimee’s flat in Coventry. There are several references to them having “Cuddles with Aimee” during their stay. At the time, Aimee Challenor was seventeen years old whereas Brown and Swales were both in their thirties.
“Nekosune and my journey started on Thursday, leaving Aberdeen and driving to Coventry.
We stated the Thursday night at the totally adorable Aimee's flat and watched some Kung Fu Hustle whilst nomnoming on pizza but we were still hungry so a quick trip to tesco and some cheap chicken and cheese later and we were enjoying the finest very quickly made Hunter's Chicken i could manage, it was good.
In the morning we gave Aimee some more cuddles and hung around for a bits before going to pick up Gem from the train station, then driving out and picking up Ursie from her flat.
I decided i really wanted to be little, or at least try so the moment we got in I got changed into some crinkles and my dashie sleeper, this was pretty nice as it was good to relax after the drive, we ate lots of candy, some pizza was ordered in and there was lots of cuddling, it was really nice, i was pretty exhausted and crawled into the spare bedroom and collapsed asleep.”
A year later, in August 2016, tweets from Aimee’s personal and political accounts suggest that he went to stay with Brown/Fionacat and Swales/Nekosune in Aberdeen.
So Brown/Fionacat is clearly lying when he claims he has never met Aimee. They’ve obviously not only met but had a close personal relationship.
The deception doesn’t end there. Brown/Fionacat then went on to try and deny that Aimee’s furry persona was ‘Mucky Meerkat’, despite a great deal of evidence to the contrary.
No wonder Brown is scrambling to rewrite history. ‘Mucky Meerkat’ was one of Aimee’s earliest fursonas, undertaken when Aimee was still a minor. Despite Aimee’s age, there is evidence of a close relationship between them at this time. In posts from Furaffinity, Aimee describes Brown/Fionacat (Runt) as his fur family ‘mommy’ (Figs A & B)
Just as it’s become apparent that Aimee Challenor’s husband Nathaniel Knight is a paedophile, it’s also obvious that Brown/Fionacat and Swales/Nekosune sexualise infancy. If you have the stomach for it, you can see behind this link “Baby_feefers” (ie Brown/Fionacat) not only role-playing as an infant, but role-playing as an infant engaging in sexual practices and describing very sexually explicit feelings and experiences in an infantilised manner.
So, to recap, Reddit offered no explanation as to how someone married to a paedophile and closely associated with others, came to be employed there and the website still seems to be protecting the group. Furthermore, one of the biggest Reddit LGBT communities is still being moderated by Charles Brown aka ‘Feefers’ / ‘Fionacat’, despite his having lied about his close personal relationship with Aimee Challenor, dating back to a time when Aimee was still a minor. His online activity displays some very dubious proclivities, not least of which are his infantilised furry sexual practices and members are not allowed to ask for their removal.
And if that still wasn't enough to keep you awake at night, remember that Brown/Fionacat used to parade around in public in a fursuit, attracting the attention of toddlers.
What could possibly go wrong?
Damaged and dangerous people being enabled by at best the negligence and at worst the complicity of Reddit.
Hard to think of what to say to this. The mind boggles. Might need to go have a bath. In disinfectant.
But well done, someone needs to publish this stuff. 😟
