Ryan Webb is a white, heterosexual lawmaker from Delaware County, Indiana. The Republican councilman made national headlines when he announced that he now identifies as a lesbian, woman of color.
“I am identifying as a woman of color due to my extensive Native American history. Cherokee, as a matter of fact, and I’m very proud of that,” he told Fox News.
Councilman Webb says he plans on maintaining his God-given pronouns.
“I am continuing to retain my preferred pronouns of ‘he’ and ‘him’ and I am married to my beautiful wife Brandy,” Webb announced. “It makes me a lesbian because I’m completely in love with her even though I identify as a woman. We have six children together, so I think it more than qualifies.”
As you might imagine, the confused pronoun crowd in Delaware County are not amused by the councilman’s political stunt.
“If he were serious, I’d sing his praises,” said Charlize Jamieson, according to the Star Press, an Indiana newspaper. “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.”
Webb rightly pointed out his critics have no right to question his gender identity.
“You don’t get to question me,” he told those demanding that he be removed from the city council. “You do not get to require proof from me. You were part of the movement that helped establish these rules and set the bar, OK? You don’t get to come later when someone else joins the club that you don’t want in … You don’t get to question how I identify.”
He told local reporters 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.”
The best part of this absurdity is that the media and the woke liberals have to accept Ryan for who and what he claims to be. Right? The sex and gender activists say that we have a right to identify however we wish – no matter our biology or pigmentation.
Oh, the chaos wrought when society determines there is no absolute truth.
Well done, Councilman Webb. Pardon me, Council ma’am.
