Missourians are fighting against legislation that would essentially make it legal to bully against LGBT students in the state’s schools. From the activists' site (http://oktosaygay.org/):

Leaders in the Missouri House are supporting "Don't Say Gay" legislation (HB2051) to eliminate discussions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in public schools, prohibit teachers from addressing bullying based on sexual orientation, and likely ban gay-straight alliances. This is a desperate tactic by frightened, bigoted, cynical individuals who are terrified at the advancement the LGBT community has made in breaking down the barriers to full and equal treatment under the law.

This website is for you, your classmates, your teachers and neighbors to tell the extreme politicians why this proposal is so, so, so wrongheaded. So upload your story and read the submissions below!
