Trans Man Responds to His Marriage Proposal Haters (VIDEO)


Last week Dr Scout proposed to long term partner Liz Margolies at the White House Pride reception, an amazing event caught on video. While many people were happy for the couple, the level of hostility Scout’s proposal garnered from conservative groups and some of the wider public was sadly quite high, all because Scout is a transgender man.

Dr Scout has now recorded a video describing the excitement he felt on that day, and he also answers his hateful critics (with a little bit of humor thrown in for good measure):

And below, you can hear Scout’s fiance Liz’s response:

Dresia V. “I'm against gay and lesbian, and sexual changes life style”

Not sure what you mean here, although the rest of your post shows that you are a compassionate person. With regard to gender dysphoria (which is the subject under discussion), it is not a ‘life style’ nor is it a choice. Despite the fact that the LGB acronym has now been extended (LGBTI) to cover other minorities, gender dysphoria, both in terms of cause and expression, is very different from homosexuality. In-fact there are still some within the gay community who are less than supportive of trans people.

Ok, let me say this, even though I'm against gay and lesbian, and sexual changes life style, that's not for me to judge or dislike them just because of their choice. What we need to do, is check ourselves and get ourselves in order. No one is prefect, not one. Seems like yeah, and here I go again, God made man and he made women to be together but look at the outcome of how marriages are divorcing at an alarming rate and why? the trust issues and the lies and cheating with single dating people and why? So, eithe way, no one is happy because of the games and it's all a dam, stinkin, dishonest, mean, selfish, nasty, greedy, disrespectul and ungodly game. So, Haters, check yourself. I don't care if I struck a nerve but I speak the truth, WHOM, Whom are you to judge?

Let those Republicans, Tea Party groups and Christians hate. Who cares! Everyone deserves to be happy with whomever. They are just blind, ignorant and racist!

Love it! Their responses were amazing! As for the haters, get over it and deal with your own issues, because you most certainly do have them if you feel the need to project hate onto others.

Perhaps Christians have forgotten what Jesus taught in Matthew 5:

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

why do some people think their religion teaches them to hate and mistreat others?

I am happy for them...I think it just sucks that the world feels that they have a right to be in on this...this is a personal choice and well, I do not even feel the right to voice my opinion in this manner, however supportive it is....

People should stop hating love. It's really a sick thing to do.
