I've demoted you to sysop. I'm only doing it because you're not an obvious vandal. Don't expect it to last if you go on ableist rantings about Autism not being a disorder. I am on the spectrum and I have taken a lot of shit for it; I have no patience for people giving shit to Autistic people. –Александр(а) (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 22:50, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

What? I don't understand. I'm Autistic too. I'm not like Michael Savage or something. I've ALWAYS taken shit for being Autistic. Ableist? You think I'm ABLEIST? Seriously? Is this a joke? Perhaps you're confused? I'm on YOUR side here. I really don't get it. Haven't you heard about Neurodiversity? That's the philosophical standpoint for which I approach issues relating to Autism. It's a difference, not a disorder. But I'm not saying anything offensive. I'm Autistic too, and it's not like I'm telling Autistics to "snap out of it" or something. I'm just saying, be proud of who you are. You can't just demote me over something like this. It's just not warranted. I didn't do anything offensive. If it appears that way, I sincerely apologize. I would never even think to offend Autistic individuals, because I know exactly what it's like. Bumpy Toad (talk) 03:03, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

My God, how could you even think that about me? Did I come across as some kind of bully? That wasn't my intention at all. My intention was the exact opposite. I'm really sorry. It was a misunderstanding. Forgive me, please. I don't want to hurt you or anyone. Bumpy Toad (talk) 03:11, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

What does it even mean to be demoted? I'm not very savvy about these things. I'm quite new here. Bumpy Toad (talk) 03:16, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Easy does it, friend. Here at RationalWiki, being "demoted" means being given sysop rights. Here is a page to tell you all about it. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 03:20, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

You're doing fine, Bumpy. Bumpy, meet Ehrenstein. Ehrenstein freaks out sometimes. Just sort of hang out and watch Ehrenstein before you react. He's sometimes offensive and weird, but he's a good guy. "Demotion" is RWian for being made a sysop. Here's your mop and bucket. You'll find that you have exactly the same paltry powers as everyone else here. It's invigorating. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 03:22, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Oh ok. I freak out too from time to time. No big deal. I just didn't want him to think badly of me, because we're both on the spectrum. And I'm glad you cleared that up, about being a sysop. Now I understand. Bumpy Toad (talk) 03:29, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Ya. You're good. Have fun. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 03:41, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
Occasionally I get mad over stuff, but I'm working on controlling it. I realize that your intentions are good. I still have a strong aversion to the Autism culture/disorder denialism thing. The reason why it's ableist is because it denies Autistic people treatment and the ability to become "normal." Some Autistic people would say that non Autistic people have a duty to accept someone who hand flaps in the middle of a job interview. Wrong: people do not have a responsibility to be psychologists, which is what they would be if they memorized every odd thing that Autistic people do and understood that it was harmless and wasn't a sign of retardation. I hope you do well editing here. Welcome to Rational Wiki. –Александр(а) (Talk | Contribs | Ragebox) 04:50, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Non-binary page[edit]

Left a message for you on the non-binary gender page. I hope that it makes you feel better. Asarelah (talk) 16:16, 19 June 2016 (UTC)
