Takei Pride

my_partner_doug tipped me to this video, "George Takei vs. Tennessee's 'Don't Say Gay' Bill."  This is a heartwarming use of social influence, and a very clever linguistic maneuver.  I have long admired George Takei's public speaking skills and acting ability.  I am now even further impressed with his social engineering.  I hope this catches on.  It would be an apt mark on history.
