A Fireside Chat with George Takei


The awesomeness that is George Takei has decided he needs to have a word with Tennessee’s Legislature who, over the past few months, have passed or advanced a number of aggressively anti-LGBT pieces of Legislation. Takei says these legislators all remind him of friends of Dorothy… .

George Takei is great! I'm a Trekkie since childhood so I'm a bit bias, but wow, what a great man he is!

Fabulous - as always - George!

It's unbelievable to me that people actually think like those 3-Stooges. What's next, separate water fountains? Maybe sitting at the back of the bus?

It's OK to be that sense of humor, class, and tenacity. In Tennessee or other states, we human beings have a multitude of opportunities to grow past our homophobic behavior and celebrate our diversity.

He's been pushing back the frontier since 1966. Really special. Hopefully he can get these Tennessee sheep-brained theocrats to back off and respect the citizens, go where no humans have gone before and rectify the state's totalitarian tendencies and kick out the Romulans -er, feudalists in office.

George is great - it is amazing how well he is keeping a sense of humor. I am not any part of LGBT, but I am a staunch supporter of LGBT rights, and the current political scene is making me lose MY cool - I don't know how he does it!

George Takei should go to Massachusetts and lobby to get prostitution legalized in that state. Massachusetts needs to stop prosecuting gays and lesbians and putting gays and lesbians behind bars for selling thier bodies and making money. It is cruel for Massachusetts to prosecute gays and lesbians and putting them behind bars for selling thier own bodies to make money. Prostitution is a victimless crime.There are a lot of gay couples in Massachusetts that need to sell thier bodies to make money to feed thier families. Prostitution should be legalized in Massachusetts the same way gay marrige is legalized in that state.
