It's quite a stunning thing...sort of. I've been using this site for ages but have never actually decided to make my own profile on it, largely because I'm such a primitive when it comes to you kids with your technology, dammit! But anyway... I was raised in a fairly evangelical Christian household but have since become incredibly disillusioned, because...well, wouldn't you? Since then, I have kept my newly found de-conversion largely to myself, but have profoundly professed my support for the political and economic left, human rights and feminism. Whilst I try to be a good person, all sorts of distractions get in the way. But I promise I'm trying to improve! I'm also a Briton, but identify far more on the greater European stage, and as such am frankly ashamed of Brexit and every single person who voted for it, although I doubt my slacktivist tendencies will really help...

Recently I have become a little concerned with RationalWiki's Mission Statement. It's generally very good, although I have found recently some pages have been stating as fact that which is not evidently true. RationalWiki:Webshites/Sexuality briefly refers to Arielle Scarcella and describes her as a transphobe, which, from my analysis, is an unfair statement to make. Anyone who goes to her YouTube page expecting to find a tirade of TERF nonsense will be sorely disappointed. Her concern lies with the way some individuals in the trans community behave (obviously no group is without it's problem people) and the psuedoscientific blending of gender expression with gender dysphoria, both of which are different things, even if sometimes related. Maybe this'll get me classed as a Pissed At Us person, but I'd like the oppurtunity to discuss this properly with other people on this site, see if a consensus can't be reached. I'm not sure where to do that as of yet, but I may found it out.

So - update. I have literally no idea how to talk to people on this wiki, or how to reply to messages sent to me. I would much appreciate it if someone would take me through this. I'm a complete IT dunce, so bear that in mind...
