  1. Hijacking the comments section, since any TIL post about Amiee Kghint ( purposefully spelt that way ). will be auto removed because of iNvAliD sOURcE.

    AK, a british transgender activist, whom her father was sentenced to 22 years for **raping and torturing** a 10 year old girl in her home attic. She has a very problematic past. H**er husband was revealed to have written stories about relations with children**. he defended and justified this. Then **she claimed his Twitter account was ‘hacked**’ when he was supposedly defending the behavior. **She was under investigation by the Green Party for her actions regarding her father** but she ended up **resigning before any action could take place**, **blaming it on bigotry.** Then she joined the Liberal Democrat party but was forced out due to **her partner’s sick tweets on children** AND her obfuscation and lies regarding their existence.

    Italians of Reddit…ever heard of this?
