Flying Sulu

Republican lawmakers in -guess where?- Tennessee have recently passed a state-wide mandate that would prevent public school teachers from saying the word "gay" in their classrooms. 

This, of course, is just to curtail any awkward conversation that might lead naive students into thinking that gay people actually EXIST in the world.

In an attempt to assist teachers, LGTB youth and their families, the fabulous George Takei (yes, that would be Lt. Sulu from "Star Trek") has offered his last name as a synonym for the word "gay".

So now people in Tennessee can talk about "Takei Marriage" and "Takei Civil Rights" without fear of right-wing wrath. 

Now that is awesome and, if I may, SO Takei!


  1. Lieutenant? He was promoted to Captain of the Takai ship Excelsior!

  2. Well, I had no idea: good for him, getting promoted and all! I bet he runs a tight...ship.

  3. His sonorous baritone ensures good morale amongst all hands, I'm sure.
