Republican Missouri lawmaker Zach Wyatt never let his own homosexuality stop him from blocking bills to prevent bullying and discrimination. But, apparently, a state bill aimed at banning students from discussing their sexuality in public schools went too far. Wyatt penned an op-ed in The Kirksville Daily Express coming out both as a gay man and as an opponent of the "Don't Say Gay" bill. "I am not the first or last Republican to come out. I have just gotten tired of the bigotry being shown on both sides of the aisle on gay issues," he wrote. "Being gay has never been a Republican or Democratic issue, and it should never be."
