What a farse. Gender identity (look it up) is not a mental illness. Individuals’s gender identity (which they’re BORN with) does not always fit their biological gender (which they are also born with). That is every combination of biological gender, gender identity, and in addition to that, sexual preference, under the sun (which each of us are born with) it is not a option nor is it a mental issue. It’s the kalideoscope of nature. Unlike.”

Those in agreement with Bryson were few and far between, but here are two of those comments:
– “Courageous to discuss, Evolvefest.
– “We have traveled up to now off coarse and people shove their perverse feelings off on the remainder of the world to make their lifestyles acceptable..they know its incorrect.. Looks to me that it would be more economical to see a Doctor to learn WHY they’re feeling the way they do than to alter their bodies the way God made them. Our food is laden with chemicals, something is genetically incorrect..”
On February 2, Bryson made a place to defend Evolvefest against people who accused him of being “anti-semetic and homophobic, among other things.” He says they consider that everyone has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And then comes an apology:
I want to extend a personal apology to anyone or any groups which have been hurt by any recent posts on the Evolvefest page. For the sake of peace and unity, we’ll be going back to delete the posts which were labeled by individuals as bad and going forward we will be refraining from commenting on specific controversial issues on a community page, which clearly calls for more divergent opinions and outlooks than those of the admins. We’ll be posting more content later on that’ll help towards establishing greater harmony and concord in a community that is giving to growing in love, forgiveness and approval.
As if the transgender thing was not contentious enough, the other peculiar recent posts have been about “transhumanism,” pedophilia, homosexuality and Zionist conspiracy theories. You can read more in http://modestperson.com/views/many-seasoned-nudists.php .
Has Bryson lost his marbles? I just don’t even understand what to make of that. In the apology post, nothing is said about the Bruce Jenner place or about transgender people particularly.
These gender comments are as leftfield as they’d be for any routine music festival. The sad thing is they’re using their enormous platform to distribute ignorance, hate and fear because they’ve reasoned that their “Creator” doesn’t approve.
They have essentially said, We do not know you, transgender individual but we’re going to call you mentally ill. Oh but by the way, if you pay the entry fee then you can nevertheless come to our events!’ You call that love and recognition?
As a fact, being transgender is not a mental illness, as determined by decades of research. This is a common, but hurtful and dangerous misconception. A transgender person is one whose gender will not fit their sex. This would be like someone who’s born with female sex characteristics, so they are labeled a “girl” at birth, but later realize http://nudistsplace.com/first-time-nudist-stories/i-used-to-get-naked-and-play-naked-man/ identify as a lad. (Many will begin to express another gender at a really young age and by or before adolescence they’ll recognize their gender does not match their body.)
Not identifying with the gender you’re assigned at birth is now called “gender dysphoria.”
Though transgender individuals are more understood and accepted now than they’ve ever been, they still face a lot of hate, bullying, and discrimination. It’s disturbing to see an organization purportedly all about love, kindness and respectfulness lead to this hate. This is exactly what they claim to be about on their web site:
