Scout, a transgender man who was attending a White House event celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, decided to show how much he supported President Obamas recent support for gay marriage. He dropped to one knee and proposed to his long time sweetheart Liz Margolies.
Scout (whose name is legally just the one word), had been planning to propose at this event at the White House for more than a year. He only had to figure out where to do it when he got there. So right after President Obama addressed the crowd and everyone was standing around having some champagne he dropped to one knee and proposed.
Scout said he memorized some of the things he wanted to say but forgot others.
Scout told the Huffington Post minutes after his proposal,
I memorized some things but I kind of forgot half of them. Because the last three and a half years, you have been an amazing adventure. Because you try harder than anyone in the world. Because while Im a little scared to spend the rest of my life with you, because youre so damn fierce, Im also amazingly excited about the possibility.
Margolies said in the interview,
All I remember hearing is, Youll be a better person,
Margolies, who is executive director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, has long told people of her opposition to the institution of marriage in the first place. She recently told scout about the pair of turtles who divorced each other after 115 years together.
Margolies asked Scout,
Did you hear about the turtles that divorced after 115 years?
Scout interrupted her and said,
Right after Scout proposed and Margolies had accepted she was standing there showing off her brand new gold engagement ring and reporter s who knew of her opposition to marriage asked her if she would actually go through with it and she seemed to already have melted to the idea.
Watch the video of Scouts proposal (it is around the 1:55 mark)

The Usurper feels quite at home with this sort.
(If you don’t believe it, just ask his friend Larry.)
That would really show up that silly royal family! Make their recent wedding take a back seat to HISTORY!
Normally I refuse to call a transgender by the pronoun of their chosen sex. But in this case I will. It’s a man, always has been. LOL!
No, that “thing” in the photo thinks it’s a woman now.
My point was that no matter what they did to the plumbing, it’s still obviously male.
Wow! I thought it was a man! See? Even when I try to be politically correct I get it wrong. I knew there was a reason why I refused to call them by the pronoun of their chosen sex.
I’m confused. After reading the article, what I think happened is that a man proposed to a woman.
I guess he pretends to be a woman and she pretends to be a lesbian, that way they can keep their street cred with their gay political friends. What a clever plan.
I’d tell you to watch the video and see the “thing” that it’s going to “marry” (whose full legal name is “Scout”) but I don’t know if you’ve got a large barf bag handy.
No, I think a woman “changed” into a man and proposed to a lesbian, or something.
We’re becoming the laughing stock of the world (with the exception of Thailand, maybe)
Confusing, isn't it?
My last comment on the subject.
I watched the video...I’m sure I saw tears on President Reagan’s picture...
I thought I was through commenting on this thread, but what you said .......
This is the cultural equivalent of holding a Black Mass in a Christian Church.
So again..... see tagline.
I do respect them for having a traditional marriage. But they are certainly a wierd couple. I pity their kids (if he can have any).
About as wierd as the guy on Dr Phil who needs to be in diapers and eat his dinner in a high chair while his girlfriend babys him.
Obama has a dark past regarding his own sexuality. From what I've heard he fishes of both sides of the wharf.
I made a comment thinking you said tears in Obama’s eyes. I still stand by my reply though.
I’m sure Reagan’s looking down in disgust.
Obama knew he would be doing this for a year or more?
