On May 20th Amnesty International UK are holding an event called Women Making History. The host they have chosen is Shon Faye, a transactivist who has tweeted the following verbatim tweets:

"I know i have children aged 18 and 19 following me. Listen to old Aunt Shon when she says: be sluttier than you are while you can"

"yeah well ive been asked to give inspiring talks to schools about my trans life and its like" suck dick, get tits early"

Shon Faye also tweeted to a biological woman "enjoy your erasure" callously referencing the fears from feminist activists that the denial of woman as a biological sex category will lead to the erasure of women's legislative rights and access to safe spaces.

If Amnesty wishes to make a statement about trans-womanhood we ask that they platform a transwoman that is an ally to the struggles faced by biological women and one who does not encourage the sexualisation of young people looking for a role model.
