You may have heard that SB 49 is about to pass in the Tennessee State House. This bill, often called the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, makes it a crime for teachers to acknowledge the existence of homosexuality.
In response, actor George Takei, who played “Mr. Sulu” on the original Star Trek series, is offering a solution. “Don’t say gay. Say Takei!” As in, “I support Takei marriage.” Or, “I’m going to the “Takei pride parade.” Or even, “That is soooo Takei.”
