In Brief:

An Indiana Councilman recently announced on Facebook that he now identifies as a woman of color in an apparent effort to show just how ridiculous the left is behaving. He has received death threats instead of acceptance. 

The Background: 

Ryan Webb, a father of five who is married to his wife, Brandy, is currently a councilman for Delaware County, Indiana, according to his official account. However, lots of eyebrows were raised when he announced his gender transition on Facebook in a move that some conservative commentators are interpreting as a joke. Webb himself has said that he is holding up a "mirror to the political left" to expose the contradictions in gender ideology according to Fox News. 

Webb’s Facebook read:

"After much consideration I have decided to come out and finally feel comfortable announcing my true authentic self. It is with great relief that I announce to everyone that I identify as a woman and not just any woman but as a woman of color as well. I guess this would make me gay/lesbian as well, since I am attracted to women.”

Webb told his followers he plans to continue to go by “Ryan or as Councilman Webb" and that he will also "retain" his pronouns of "He/Him."

Webb has received backlash from the left including calls for his “execution.”


Notable Quotes: 

“If he were serious, I'd sing his praises, but instead, I know better. We all do. I know better because of his history of making hateful anti-trans statements on social media and disrespecting one's pronouns. He has, purposely and intentionally, misgendered me, ridiculing my own gender identity. That is not something transgender people do to one another." – Charlize Jamieson a transgender 

“It is unfortunate that I cannot simply be given the same space and respect to explore my identity that so many of those targeting me demand for themselves. It’s possible I may change my mind down the road. The process of identity exploration is complex and oftentimes at the end of our personal journey we end right back where we started.” – Webb
