look and laugh i guess
I should clarify that I am not friendly to the Social Justice Movement that seems to be prevalent in tumblr, though I consider myself to be politically liberal (pro-choice, LGBT equality, affirmative action, etc.). So, if you wish to read a defense of the person insulting rvsa, you won’t find it in this reply.
There are so many things wrong with the text above that it’s hard to chose what to comment on. Let me start off with the fact that rvsa is not the original creator of Ryo Asuka, thus he has no responsibility whatsoever to apologize for the character’s body/gender.
Then, there is the argument that putting a queer/intersex person in the role of a villain is, somehow, hurting the queer/intersex community. Why is that? Because, supposedly, by presenting one person of this community as an evil, negative entity, the whole community is stigmatized. This is not an entirely baseless claim  but it has no place in a world with extreme variety and freedom of access to an incredibly diverse industry that produces many different stories.
But, even if Ryo was the only intersex character in anime/manga, would that be enough to stigmatize the community? To find that, you only have to ask where exactly youngsters learn to practice prejudice. I think that most people probably thought of school, the family, religion, the workplace, etc. One could depict a community as angelic, heavenly people in manga and anime and still that would’t make a difference in society, because anime/manga are not political documents to influence societal and institutional changes.
Back in Devilman, I would argue that there is hardly one sane/good person in Devilman -even Akira is more of an anti-hero. Still, Ryo can be considered pretty kind for a villain -in the end of the story he regrets what he did to mankind and Akira- when compared to guys like Dio Brando.
Even more importantly, I have yet to meet, read or listen to a single person from the Devilman fandom that dislikes Ryo. His personality, as insane as unpredictable, and his overall appearance are some of the reasons he is one of the fandom’s favorites. So I find it hard to believe that having him being intersex is, in any way, somehow hurtful to this community.
In my opinion, the strongest argument of all, is that this is fiction and, as such, there is no obligation for any artist to make things a certain way in order to satisfy another person’s thoughts and feelings. There are tons of material that I find to be either repulsive or offensive. A good example is “Togainu no chi”, because it fetishes rape to the utmost extent. There are stories that do the same thing for bullying, which for me -who was a victim during my teens- feels hurtful. But that doesn’t mean people who write these stories owe me an explanation for their work and that doesn’t mean they did anything wrong by creating that sort of art. With all due respect, it’s not fictional characters that hurt minorities, but real life bigotry and stupidity and both of these evils are preserved by very real ignorance.
If we follow this person’s argument to the end, Togashi needs to apologize for making Alluka, one of Hunter x Hunter’s most interesting yet morbid characters, transgender. And, of course, Tezuka should write an apology from his grave for depicting a feminine, beautiful gay man as the world’s most dangerous terrorist in MW. The list could go on and on.
Worst thing of all, is that rvsa took down his/her artwork, which really pisses me off. There is a lovely saying that “what some find degrading, others find empowering.” This person took negative vibes from rvsa’s work and that is totally acceptable and understandable. They can close the tab and look for art that fits their needs. But making the artist feel so bad as to delete artwork that actually interests and inspires others? Making baseless claims on the artist’s awareness? Seriously, how can one person act that way and still ask people to “educate themselves”?
I hope rvsa reuploads his work. Personally, when I see images of LGBTQI characters, I feel happy, because I remember a time when this was something I would only dream of. And I feel happy that they inspire people to do amazing and interesting art. Having that taken away for the sake of political correctness would freaking sadden me, both as an artist and as a queer person.
 Those of you interested on the subject, you should definately watch “The Danger of the Single Story”.
