George Takei invites you to replace the word gay with Takei in response to homophobic legislature that would prevent teachers from talking about homosexuality in the classroom.
As George Takei explains:
George Takei takes on the Tennessee Legislature and its "Don't Say Gay" bill, in the way only George Takei can!
A bill now pending in Tennessee would prohibit teachers in that state 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 can simply make us disappear.
George is here to tell Tennessee, and all the LGBT youth and teachers who would be affected by this law, that he is here for you. In fact, he is lending his name to the cause. Any time you need to say the word "gay," you can simply say "Takei."
You can buy T-shirts and other items that say "It's OK to be Takei", to wear and display with pride and to show Tennessee and the world that you're against censorship and bigotry....
All the proceeds from the sales of these items will be donated to charity. Have a TAKEI old time!
