If you didn't hear about the sad story of Tyler Ryans and his boyfriend Josh, be glad. If you have, you know what it's about and I don't have to go into details. But sorry folks, it looks like this is the sickest hoax ever.

I believed it. Had no reason not to. Unless I heard that people only know the story via Twitter and FB. No evidence in the news anywhere. I felt sick for even thinking that it could be a fake, but then I did an image search. There were pics of "Tyler" and "Josh" posted. In a friend's LJ. A friend who was outraged and - like me - had no reason not to believe the story. 

She posted today that it's all a lie. That there is no Tyler Ryans in the hospital where his "boyfriend" said he is. And the pics? See for yourself.

Screencap from my friend's LJ, original post since then deleted, but here with permission:

And then I did an image search. Funny how "Tyler" shows up in an article about emo hairstyles from 2008:

Same with his "boyfriend" "Josh". Screencap used with permission:

This is a DeviantArt wallpaper, posted 2009, of Dave Williams of the band "Son of Dork". Looks familiar?

To top it off, this is a screencap from yesterday in the Tyler Ryan Facebook group. Claiming he got the pink glasses last summer:

Funny, then how does the same fucking pic show up on flickr, posted 2007?

Outright LIE. Right there. And if this is, then how can I believe anything else?

I don't. I want to find the fucker who is behind this and punch him. He used my friends and other people. Good people who have a kind heart and are compassionate. I don't know for what purpose, but it's not good. And I won't even begin to ponder the damage this does to real abuse victims. 

I want to write more, but I can't. I feel sick and I'm seething. Spread the word.

I am so, so sorry. I wanted to tell you this yesterday when I was sure, but was not sure how, seeing as you were so passionate about it and so I left all those cryptic posts and tweets just knowing/ hoping you'd know what I was talking about.

I am sorry. Next time I'd out and just say it to the person.

I think this person is sick. Sick to the point that that fucker who made up the lesbian Iranian girl is.

I had that feeling, then Steve brought stuff up...and it got me thinking. Then elebridith had the proof.

I'm sick. But I won't let them win and ruin me. Someday I will care again I'm sure. It's who i am.

Nah, anything with Steve and CK, I'd never... Yeah, I know she did and I had some more, just in case

Yeah, you can feel bad and used and all that, but don't become like me. I like who you are. That you care.

haha, not that Steve :)

I think for now it is safer to lock myself up emotionally. I actually scared my husband last night with my fury. I never scare my husband!

And yet again, we find ourselves victims of our compassion, yes? I'm right there with you. It's wrong that someone would use people that way, gain their compassion with a heartbreaking story, and then we find out it's all one huge asstastic lie. Well, instead of focusing on our anger on this issue, how about we send out prayers, positive thoughts, etc. (whatever flavor your little invisible being(s), or lack of, recommend) to ALL of those who DO suffer from unspeakable acts every day? They don't need a name, or a face. They're out there, believe me.

You have a beautiful, caring soul. Please do not let people like this take that away from you.

It's appalling to me that people will use social media to behave in such a vile, attention seeking way! When I think how I was nearly in tears telling my hubby about this poor kids situation I am filled with such impotent rage! I do agree with clvr_witch though, there are many, many people out there for whom, that story is a reality and it is them that I will continue to have hope for.
My attitude toward social media sites has always been to be as honest as possible, because my words are the only part of me that people can use to know me. There's no physical being to interact with. I guess this just acts as a reminder that there are despicable people out there that don't feel the truth is as importaant as I do.
Sorry I've ranted on a bit, but I feel so strongly about this, and I am left feeling like a naive idiot for falling for such a macabre and twisted soul.
