Transactivists fined Camp Boomerang RV Park owners for excluding women in a statement they made.
“Camp Boomerang is a private, members-only RV park / campsite that only allows ‘boys’,” wrote Bryan Quinn, co-founder of Camp Boomerang.
“We understand that this statement doesn’t make everyone happy, unfortunately, but it feels like it needs clarification,” said Quinn.
“We hope that everyone who visits Camp Boomerang will have a comfortable, safe and non-confrontational environment in the future.”
“As a ‘private members only’ unit, we can build a like-minded atmosphere,” said Bryan Quinn.
One Twitter user wrote, “Seeming to have a good platform here, I wanted to alert gays in the Michigan and Midwest area to a campground that will open here next year,” and urged people, “Don’t go there go “because The Owner” will not allow trans men since I finally received it as written proof of the rules. “
“A PPE over the new gay campsite [sic] in Michigan. Their conditions are transphobic and disgusting, ”said a Facebook user.
“In our church we fight for one another [sic] Rights and we stand together! We can’t allow this kind of exclusion and honestly it makes me so sick! Please do NOT support Camp Boomerang RV Park & Campground, ”pleaded another user.
“Hate is hate. Period.”
“We never said anything about ‘penis checks’ but let’s be real here … if we let it [transgender] Men in and they go naked by the pool, then it is obvious that there is no penis, ”said the camp owner in a Facebook post. “I’m sorry to put it bluntly. But if you don’t like the rules, go ahead. “
