Missouri legislator's speech against transgender sports bill goes viral -
"An impromptu speech by an openly gay Missouri state lawmaker is going viral on social media.
In response to a colleague who proposed a measure that would ban transgender girls from competing on girls’ sports teams, Democratic state Rep. Ian Mackey shared his own experience of growing up in Hickory County, Missouri.
“I was afraid of people like you growing up,” he said Monday. “For 18 years, I walked around with nice people like you, who took me to ballgames, who told me how smart I was and then went to the ballot to vote for crap like this. I couldn’t wait to get out.”"
