– “And you call your page Evolvefest?? 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’re also born with). That is every mix of biological gender, gender identity, and on top of that, sexual preference, under the sun (which each of us are born with) it is not a option nor is it a mental problem. It is the kalideoscope of nature. Unlike.”

Those in agreement with Bryson were few and far between, but here are two of those comments:
– “Brave to discuss, Evolvefest. Homosexuality, transgender etc These are perversions of the laws of nature and a degradation to the dignity of the human being.”

– “we’ve traveled thus far off rough and people shove their perverse feelings off on the remaining portion of the world to make their lifestyles okay..they know its wrong.. Seems to me that it would be cheaper to see a Doctor to find out WHY they are 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 individuals who accused kam naked beach of being “anti-semetic and homophobic, among other things.” He talks about some of their recent conspiracy-driven posts and repeatedly says they support freedom of speech and religious expression. He states they consider that everyone has a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of http://modestperson.com/views/my-first-nude-experience-was-when-i-was-younger.php . Then he says that all are welcome to Evolvefest regardless of gender identity. And then comes an apology:
I want to offer 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 will be going back to delete the posts that have been labeled by people as offensive and going forward we will be refraining from commenting on certain contentious issues on a community page, which obviously entails more divergent views and outlooks than those of the admins. We’ll be posting more content in the future that’ll help towards creating greater harmony and concord in a community which is giving to growing in love, forgiveness and acceptance.
As if the transgender thing was not contentious enough, the other strange recent posts have been about “transhumanism,” pedophilia, homosexuality and Zionist conspiracy theories. Here’s an excerpt of one place: “The next move of the Radical Gay Mainstream Media Zionist-run Agenda would be to normalize’ Pedophilia – now that anyone who dissents from agreeing with the kosherness’ of Homosexuality is instantaneously crucified.” You’re able to read more in this article.
Has Bryson lost his marbles? I just do not even know what to make of that. In the apology post, nothing is said about the Bruce Jenner post or about transgender people particularly. The transphobic rant is still on their page, despite some Facebook users reporting it to FB as hate speech.
These gender opinions are as leftfield as they might be for any routine music festival. The sad thing is they are using their huge stage to spread ignorance, hate and fear because they have concluded that their “Creator” does not approve.
They’ve essentially said, We don’t know you, transgender person but we are 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 acceptance?
As a fact, being transgender is not a mental illness, as established by decades of research. That is a common, but hurtful and damaging misconception. A transgender man is one whose gender does 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 they identify as a boy. (Many will start to express another gender at an extremely young age and by or before adolescence they’ll recognize their gender does not fit their body.)
Not identifying with the gender you’re assigned at birth is now known as “gender dysphoria.”
Though transgender people are more understood and accepted now than they have ever been, they still face a lot of hate, intimidation, and discrimination. It is disturbing to see an organization purportedly all about love, kindness and respectfulness contribute to this hate. This can be what they claim to be around on their site:
