i feel like i need to get this off of my chest.
@ everyone who hates ryan or talks bad about ryan because “he’s transphobic” because of the lyrics for time to dance
ryan wrote that song when he was a teenager. panic! became famous when he was 19, but time to dance was one of their very first demos, so who knows how long before that it was written. there also wasn’t as much mainstream talk or knowledge about lgbt+ topics back in the early 2000s. he was an immature, uneducated teenager who wrote a song about his favorite book and used the same phrasing found in the book. so many people hate him for that.
meanwhile, 30 year old brendon urie still performs the song and has never said anything against it, and y’all still worship him??? he could’ve completely stopped performing it as soon as ryan left the band but he kept singing it and he still sings at least part of it now. no one has ever said anything about that
whether you think the song is fine or you think it’s terrible, this fandom needs to stop hating/shaming ryan for things that brendon also does and no one cares when it’s him
