Anyone have a transcript of what George Takei said on Jimmy Kimmel? Because I'm at work and can't watch videos.

Edited to add: I'm alone here, and no prospect of company. So I watched the video. George Takei is pure awesome. Of course, I already knew that, but this is further proof.

Comments

No transcript, but to paraphrase, Takei quotes former NBA basketball player Tim Hardaway, who said"You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don't like it." Takei then goes on to say that gays don't hate Hardaway in return. We like him. We *really* like him. Especially his long legs, and...

And what shade of puce did this Hardaway nutter go?

Mind you, I once cut a chap at work down to size - he was holding forth about a gay colleague who was due to join us in a short time, saying, "He better not approach me..." and silly stuff like that.

To which I responded, without thinking, "Oh, I don't think there'll be much chance of that. I understand he likes attractive men."

Perhaps not the most tactful thing to say.


Unfortunately, Hardaway was nowhere in sight - this was a video clip for a talk show.

But I do love what you said.

And then Takei bursts out giggling at the sheer silliness of his coming on to someone he'd probably only have ogled had it not been for the nasty comment.

Oh. I took it as an Evil Laugh(tm).

Which I loved.

I just saw that.

Oh, my goodness. Brilliant.
