When an elementary school teacher in England decided to reveal his sexual orientation to his class for Anti-Bullying Week, he was hardly expecting to get the response he did.

When “Mr. R” asked his students to raise their hands if they’ve ever heard the word “gay” being used as an insult, he was shocked when almost every child in the class put their hand up.
