George Takei vs. Tennessee's "Don't Say Gay" Bill
Star Trek's George Takei takes on the Tennessee Legislature and its "Don't Say Gay" bill...in the way only George Takei can!
A bill that is now pending in Tennessee would prohibit teachers in Tennessee from discussing homosexuality in the classroom. The so-called "don't say gay" law is premised on the misguided belief that, by not talking about gay people, they will simply disappear.
Well, George Takei is here to tell the state of Tennessee, as well as all the LGBT youths and teachers who would be affected by this law, that he is here for you...and he is lending his name to the cause. So any time you need to say the word "gay," you can simply say "Takei" instead!
Perhaps this will show the Tennessee legislatures that censorship and bigotry are bogus, and that teaching such censorship and bigotry in the classroom is not only bogus, but un-American. And it will not be tolerated.
Personally, I'm not gay. But I really think this country needs to get out of the dark ages and stop with all the anti-homosexual nonsense. It's really pathetic.
