Let’s delve into the debate and find out if the accusations have any depth.
There was a screenshot of texts posted by Sh**e where he asked Ryan what he would do if a girl had a bigger dick than him. My personal interpretation of the texts was that Ryan was referring to the dick as ‘it’ and not the girl. But yeah, kinda shady. (assuming we trust Sh**e on this one) (Also I do not understand why he doesn’t break ties with someone as problematic as Sh**e)
However, he has tweeted this: (RFRA was a bill that was seen as a threat to the LGBT+ community)
Yes, Time To Dance is about Invisible Monsters, but I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if it is transphobic. Firstly, though, Time to Dance was one of their first songs so Ryan was pretty young when he wrote it and secondly, I guess the social perspective 10-15 years ago was somewhat different than it is now.
This is just a musing of mine, but I think Ryan might’ve been hinting at himself through that particular line.. as a boy with very little to no inhibitions about adopting a traditionally feminine appearance (his hair, his makeup, his clothing, his mannerisms) This is entirely a product of my warped brain, but to me, a teenage Ry trying to figure himself out seems more likely than him penning down a song to hurt others, especially when he was going through disturbing times himself.
Also, I assume everyone knows about ‘reinvent love’, one of the highlights of the Pretty Odd Era, being a quote by the gay poet Arthur Rimbaud?
I’ve read the Paul Cates theory on tumblr too, and here’s something I found today:
George Ryan Ross III. I admit he is not perfect, he has done questionable stuff. But weren’t most of us pretty unaware about such issues before we joined tumblr? I believe he’s on the road to improvement. Let’s give him a chance and see. :)
I didn’t know about him until I received the information from [Lee].
And [Lee] gasped and said “You’re playing the Red Dragon.
I sort of said "I don’t really know what that means?”
And I [asked my babe, Lee, as you do, because you know he’s a big fanboy of Bryan Fuller] and [Lee told me] what it really meant [to him and how much he was looking forward to me parading around completely naked except for the tattoo. Obviously I couldn’t disappoint him.]
[Have you seen him make the sad “Ned” face? Impossible to resist. Long story short - off went my clothes and on went the make-up. The things I do for that boy. Do you have any idea how cold the winters are in Canada!?! ]
I saw that text post about a week ago, laughed my butt off, and then drew it. It was just incredibly hilarious in my mind and idky. Just..Ahhh Also I cant draw badgers. Text post by http://whispythewriter.tumblr.com/
On our way home from Colorado, Hayden had the news on the radio. Probably NPR. The news anchor said that in Colorado there have been 15 cases (which I’m not sure where he got that number…) of Tularemia which is only a few away from the record high. This outbreak is due to the fact that rabbit populations are very, very high and keep increasing.
I got so mad.
All Colorado is doing right now is developing, and developing, and developing some more. All this building is pushing the resident predators away and allowing the rabbits unprecedented advantage over the landscape! Not to mention those tasty ornamental flowers and seeds that suburbanites plant. Free food!
Not to mention the fact that a lot of “hunters” will just shoot and leave the bodies of animals (like coyotes or prairie dogs) lying about which attracts disease-bearing pests!
I should do official research to see how much the “vermin” species are just thrown out or left to rot and how that effects the rate of infection in locals.
