George Takei rocks like three geology conventions and a moderate moutain range  
With thanks to filkertom for the link.

As you may know, my current state of residence is plagued with a General Assembly member by the name of Stacey Campfield, whose current inanity is the "Don't Say Gay" bill. This would prevent teachers in kindergarten through eighth grade from even mentioning that homosexuality exists.

George Takei, who rocks like three geology conventions and a moderate mountain range, has tweeted to offer a solution to teachers:

TN bill will prevent teachers from using the word "gay" in class. In response, I'm lending them my name: "It's okay to be Takei."

I am almost inclined to get a Twitter account for the sole purpose of retweeting this.

... and of course, silence means it will all go away.

Yea. Right.

Of course it will. And no one will be bullied for maybe being not manly enough or not feminine enough, because if it's never mentioned, none of the school children will notice any difference.

And they think sex ed works that way too.

Sigh. Humans.
