Empathy for women has never been Caitlyn Jenner's strong suit. He frequently abandoned wives and children, and made Kim Kardashian keep his dirty secret for ten years. He made creepy jokes about going to the women's room, and dressed in his own daughters' cloths.

The one time he thinks of someone other than himself, George Takei decides to go on a big old cancel campaign on Twitter. He called Jenner "a menace" because Jenner was honest that males should not be in female sports.

If anyone is an authority on this issue, it's Caitlyn. At his peak, the world's best men literally could not surpass him. He was a wonder of physical fitness.

George Takei is 90 years old, so I don't know why he feels to be so woke on this issue. It's a young idiot's folly. Maybe in his old age he finds solace in being the internet's "wholesome, nice guy" but he looks sour and vicious now.

And that IS how Takei has stayed in the public eye over the years. By being an adorable, kindly old man. There's nothing wrong with that, except he's now shown how false that is.

He didn't go after Jenner just for being a Republican. He didn't even go after Jenner for killing a woman with his car. What really brought on Takei's fury was Jenner saying that men don't belong in women's sports.

Why can't Takei show some of that wholesome kindness to women? Maybe don't assume we're villainous? Women's sports will never overtake men's sports in terms of fame and money. So why can't we have them? They're no threat to you.

I know Takei called Caitlyn Jenner a menace, but I don't believe for a minute that's what he meant. I think he views US as the menace. He's just angry with Jenner siding with us.

Women are not a menace, George.

I think the bigger problem is George Takei’s intern whose in charge of his social media. He’s paying people to give him the image of cool, hip grandpa. He’s 90. I sincerely doubt he’s engaged in social media battles and, being a prominent gay man, asked that the account support LGBT issues. He probably has no fucking clue what T means in this day and age.

That makes sense, especially when I think about the time his account posted a supposedly funny meme of a woman standing up from her wheelchair to get a bottle off a shelf. He was pushing 80 at the time, which seems rather old never to have met a wheelchair user who isn't obligated to stay in the chair constantly.

Whoever posted that may have had a good sense of memes but wasn't hip to what old people are likely to know.

I think you're right. Especially since LOTS of older people can walk short distances but use wheelchairs when going out to places like a grocery store. Those tweets don't sound like something a person who is over 80 years old would say/think

It's not just older people, either. Lots of people of all ages use wheelchairs in certain situations coz of various medical conditions that make it difficult to walk long distances or stand for a long time. Being a wheelchair user, and having legitimate need of a wheelchair, is not confined to people who can't walk or stand at all. Yes, people over 80 usually know that - but then so do many, perhaps most, people of much younger ages too.
