After Wednesday's U.S. Supreme Court decisions deemed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional and dismissed California's same-sex marriage ban (Proposition 8), George Takei is sharing his thoughts on the historic day.
In an editorial written for the Washington Post, Takei explains that DOMA being ruled unconstitutional ends "ick."
"Whenever one group discriminates against another – keeping its members out of a club, a public facility or an intuition – it often boils down to a visceral, negative response to something unfamiliar. I call this the 'ick'," the 76-year-old Star Trek actor explains.

It's not quite where no man has gone before, but on Wednesday, Sir Patrick Stewart, who traveled the galaxy as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and lead mutants in the X-Men series, went somewhere he's never been: a pizzeria!
The English actor posted on Twitter a photo of his "first ever pizza 'slice,' " even demonstrating the proper "N.Y. fold" way to eat the delicious slab of cheesy, saucy goodness (eating with a knife and a fork is blasphemy).
The actor will reprise his role as mutant leader Professor Charles Xavier in next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Bet pizza is being added to craft services!
