They even refrained from having their Japanese character practice kenjutsu or karate as a hobby. Sulu just did fencing.
Then the Kelvin timeline gave him a literally multi-folded katana. No mention on whether or not this is a standard-issue Federation weapon or a family heirloom, though :roll:
The same dipshits who turned the character gay because the old actor was gay. For all their talk of microaggressions and reading rooms, wokefags are hilariously obtuse.

Takei even said multiple times that Sulu wasn't gay. Those fucking autists just can't stop their identity politics for a second to realize that an actor and a character they play don't have to be the same person.

Take Barney from How I Met Your Mother. The character clearly isn't gay. Neil Patrik Harris is. He has also been in Harold and Kumar Go To Whitecastle, playing "himself" and his character still wasn't gay, despite him being very openly a faggot by that point.

If you ever wonder why the writers can't write for shit no more, look no further than that. They would write NPH as nothing but a faggot, despite him obviously not wanting to play that role.
I can't blame him either. What could be more boring and uninspiring than a director telling you to "just be yourself"?

It's a problem for all these actors who make it big. They either end up embracing playing "themselves" in every movie or they play that one specific role they're known for over and over and over, like De Niro and Joe Pesci after Goodfellas. It happened in kung fu movies too, like with Jimmy Wang Yu (sp?) after playing the One-Armed Swordsman. One thing about the asians markets is they never let a movie rest if it was a big hit. One-Armed Swordsman spawned a shitload of sequels, remakes and imitations, just as did Zatoichi in Japan.

Takei is kind of a massive bitch, though. I wouldn't be surprised if his eventual goal was to make Sulu seen as a gay character. He's very identity politics, is Takei.

Yeah, now he is but he used to be very ardemant about Sulu.
Being typecast isn't the same thing, though. You mentioned the perfect example with De Niro even.
Him as a mobster was fine. It's when he was more himself later on when it became an issue. Look at all that crap garbage that fucking TDS-suffering, nigger-loving, cuck faggot has been in for the last several years!
Him playing a tough, level-headed motherfucker couldn't be further from the truth. Just like Barney being a suave cunt destroyer couldn't be further from what NPH is. Yet they were roles those two really got to shine in.

Oh, they get that, but they don't want that. If you're making a movie about a cripple or lesbian, you better hire someone who is crippled or lesbian enough to appease twitter. Self-inserts are where it's at.

It's like they don't like the idea that you can pretend to be something that you are not. Wonder where that aversion might come from... :thinking:

This is part of why Picard sucked (in addition to shit writing). In TNG Patrick Stewart was still acting and portraying a specific character. In Picard his stipulations for returning made them change the character into a version of Stewart himself.

And man is he ever a dumb faggot. A true Los Angeles piece of shit ultra leftist and a complete moron. He couldn't be further from the cultured Picard if he tried.

So is Steward a spineless cuck constantly apologizing for stuff beyond his control, or was that just the typical studio mandate for all white cis male characters?

Takei said that Sulu wasn't gay after they made him gay in the JJ Trek movie. The people making the movie just assumed that Takei would want Sulu to be gay without asking him, then they got pissed off at him for saying that Sulu wasn't gay.

The episode "Shore Leave" established that Sulu collects guns. Somehow I doubt that Takei collects guns in real life.
