George Takei sees gay pride beginning in Japan
Associated Press ^ | Jun 5, 2014 11:12 AM EDT | Mari Yamaguchi

Posted on 06/05/2014 1:36:34 PM PDT by Olog-hai

George Takei said he needed courage and anger to come out as gay and to join the equal rights movement for sexual minorities in the U.S., and he hopes his Japanese counterparts will do the same to make their society more equal.

Takei said he has noticed a movement beginning in Japan, though the country of his ancestry has a long way to go. He said Japanese people need to fight for their own rights and they need to be a bit angry, too. […]

Takei, 77, is in Japan to attend embassy-organized events marking LGBT Pride Month in the U.S. He later toasted gay rights at a reception hosted by Ambassador Caroline Kennedy attended by about 160 people, including Japan's first lady Akie Abe. …

Japan’s first lady is endorsing sodomy? Foul.

Who knows. I’ve said prayers for all of them and it’s in Gods hands now. I make jokes by instinct but in the end I hand it to the Almighty. My heart goes out to all of them, especially a 16 year old girl who was raised in confusion.

The idea of that wrinkled up nobody George Takei being a homo is just ... creepy. He was the only character from Star Trek I had no respect for.

"I like George, and don't really care about his being gay. He has one of the funniest Facebook pages around."

I can't remember the quote word for word, and it's conveniently difficult to find by searching, but he once said that people exist to raise the next generation of gay children, or something like that. He's a vile little twerp.

What exactly is there to be proud about, being gay?

It's not about "pride". It's normalizing access to children.

Satan has to feed upon "fresh" souls, donchaknow.

Not that I know of. Chekov wasn’t in the original few episodes, but Sulu was always portrayed by Takei. Of course, no one knew the helmsman was a homo.

Here he goes again ...no NAMBLA in Japan ...Men can’t marry men ; women can’t marry women ...Just a couple of weeks ago in the good old USA : “ New York-area police officers, paramedics, a Little League coach and a rabbi are among 70 people arrested in a state and federal investigation into a ring of collectors that allegedly used computers to swap pornographic images of children, a law enforcement source told the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday...” USSA has more than its share of perverts .

“George Takei said he needed courage”

That’s not courage. It’s sheer, brazen, obdurate, and public wrongdoing.

Courage would have been seeking treatment.

“His 16 yr old, oldest of three Girls Sarah want’s us to call it Sam now.”

When something like that happens, what is needed is a full-court press to find and jail the dyke who has been molesting her, and to get the victim into treatment.

|a reception hosted by Ambassador Caroline Kennedy attended by about 160 people, including Japan’s first lady Akie Abe.”

And those arrogant foggy-bottom nitwits don’t even realize the depth of the insult in the prime minister sending his wife to a reception with the ambassador.

Obumturd, of course, would just be pleased that he has damaged our international standing once more.

Homosexual acts are unnatural due to the design of the human body. Heterosexual acts are not.

Vaginal lining is at least three times as thick as anal lining. It is designed to receive a certain intimate foreign object and contract with muscular receptors which make said foreign object react, expand and give pleasure in return for the pleasure it receives, usually culminating in an ejaculation which is generally as pleasurable for the female organ as it is for the male organ. Feminists may disagree, but real women do not.

Anal muscular structure does none of these things as it is designed only for expelling poop from the lower intestine. That ain't a matter of opinion, it is a matter of physiological fact. Anal lining tears far more easily than vaginal lining, takes longer to heal and is far more susceptible as a source of and entry for disease.

Those who argue that homosexual activity is as pleasurable as heterosexual intercourse are even more stupid than those who would claim superior intimate experience with masturbation or a dildo.

Sorry if I offend anyone's sensitivities, but those are the facts. An anus has the ever present potential to spread disease, including fatal diseases, when it comes in penetrative contact with a penis. A vagina, on the other hand, can only contact and spread those diseases by allowing infected private parts to come into penetrative contact with it.

Further, said diseases, as bad as they may be, are generally only fatal if the infecting organ has been in or been infected by another organ which has penetrated an anus somewhere along the line.

IOW, nature has even worse consequences for homosexual activity than it has for wantonly promiscuous heterosexual activity. AIDS did not even exist before the normalization of homosexuality begin.

“He’s probably talking about homosexual marriage.”

Seeing how marriage there is still pretty much about joining two families,(in spite of all the talk about “love marriages”), I don’t think homosexual marriage has much of a chance there.

They sometimes say you’re homosexual from birth, but with Japanese women the most gorgeous and desirable on Earth, it’s enough to make a homo turn hetero.

It has been a major problem in Japan for a long time. A buddy of mine is in the navy and married a Japanese woman and she is absolutely gorgeous. She says she could rarely get a date in Japan. Men there are simply not interested in mating.

What’s sad is how hard the governments in population declining countries are trying to create incentives for people to have kids. France, another nation with a shrinking population issue, is offering a full year of paid maternity leave for women. Germany is proposing 3 years

10/18/2013 – Celebvocate: George Takei on LGBT rights

George Takei, aged 76, spoke at a National Press Club luncheon in Washtington D.C. for 40 minutes about equality for the LGBT community where he said: “I love young people, especially young, straight couples. They’re going to be making the gay babies of tomorrow.”

Anyone out there in Freeperland got a link to the video/audio/transcript of GT telling Howard Stern about his 1st homosexual experience at a scout camp in CA during the late 1940s?

good one. (i mean, play on words, that is). Well, we all knew this was happening. Whatever bad cultural trait in America, in the old days it took about 10 years to get to Japan (gang banger wannabees, grafitti, etc) but in this new instant information age and the money power of the Gay Mafia worldwide, it is spreading quickly. Uganda might be the last nation standing following the worldwide pervert onslaught.
