George Takei Compares Outing Closeted Politicians Like Aaron Schock To Housetraining Dogs

George_TakeiI don’t believe in outing people because there are individual situations, but politicians who have taken a position contrary to what they really are they need to be called to task. You know it’s like when you’re training a dog to be housebroken you push his nose to the accident he’s committed. A politician who has been hypocritical and dishonest has no place in public service and they need to be called to task.”

 

Beloved Star Trek actor-turned-devoted equality activist George Takei asked his opinion of outing politicians like Congressman Aaron Schock who have antigay voting records, in an interview to promote To Be Takei, the revealing new documentary about his life and marriage to husband Brad, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival
