George Takei's love for "sweaty basketball players"

This actually appeared online some time ago, and it made us laugh out loud. I hadn't even heard of Tim Hardaway before the flurry of headlines about some anti-gay remarks he had made. But I thought this response by George Takei was beautiful, and I grabbed some screen captures because I wanted to be able to share it with people who couldn't watch videos online for whatever reason. And yeah, it actually took me over a month to actually get around to posting it. But if you haven't seen this before, enjoy...



Hello, I'm George Takei. Recently I've been troubled to hear comments by former NBA All-star Tim Hardaway, who said, "I hate gay people. Let it be known I don't like gay people. I'm homophobic."

As a gay man and a human being, I was shocked and saddened. But I want you to know, Tim, on behalf of gay people everywhere, that despite your ugly words, *we* don't hate you. As a matter of fact, we like you. We like you *very* much.


We particularly like your large, powerful legs...your smooth, chocolatey head, glazed in man-sweat.



I'll keep my eyes on you, and let it be known, one day, when you least expect it, I *will* have sex with you!



(Throws his head back and laughs, then the video cuts to the following image, with George voicing over, "I love sweaty basketball players!"

Mirror, mirror on the wall, crystal is the fairest bauble of them all. This winter, let your feet marvel and sparkle with the likes of Lady Lynch Zeppa, Stellis, So Private, Calypso, Beaute Strass, Pigalle or made-to-measure crystallized high-tops(see Mika's latest cideo.) But be warned, crystal gazing can lead to a hypnotic state. There again, those darling Druids would beg to differ as would Queen Victoria who ordered up Crystal Palace and fervent fans of Naico Mine's 'Cave of the Gaints' in Chihuahua, Mexico. If visiting the latter, pack your Christian louboutin shoes and matching hairnet; the humidity is frizz bang outrageous.
