In [CURRENT YEAR] he'd be labeled as a traitor of all gays and a homophobe.

Well no... But from what I understand, there is gay fan fiction about Spock and Kirk stretching back to at least the 70's, so there certainly people out there who wants gay Spock regardless.

Then Pegg backpedaled and said that OK, only THIS Sulu was gay. The Prime timeline Sulu was still hetero.

Um... because the arrival of the Narada in the past would change someone's sexuality? Or, OH, I bet it, sexuality really is a choice, that's what they're teaching us.

Playing ********'s advocate for a moment, the arrival clearly had a lot of temporal repercussions, not just obviously (and directly) changing the whole course of Kirk's life but also delaying the construction of the Enterprise by several years at least. It will undoubtedly have had inumerable effects on the timeline, some of them very subtle... but... I am at a loss to account for how it could have resulted in Sulu being gay if he wasn't already going to be.

I can picture George Takei's reaction, standing back, arms folded - All for representation, but... Why Sulu in particular...?
