Can everyone shut up about Orson Scott Card now?
I mean, please?
Yes, he is a horrible human being. Unfortunately, there are a shit ton of horrible human beings in the world.
You’re not convincing anyone. Everyone that cares has already made up their mind about whether or not they’re going to see the movie and whether or not they agree or disagree with Card’s beliefs and practices.
Card is a small part of a large problem. Do other things that support LGTB and others more directly, and make the world a better place that way.
Especially because your message is lost when you imply that people who give money towards Ender’s Game with the knowledge of Card’s terrible-ness are also terrible themselves. Which, personally, makes me dislike all the people hating on Card and Ender’s Game just as much as I hate Card himself.
So for the love of God, for the love of LGTB, for the love of good literature (even if created by terrible people) - shut your piehole and move on.
"I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."

"What’s the worst possible thing you can call a woman? Don’t hold back, now.
You’re probably thinking of words like slut, whore, bitch, cunt (I told you not to hold back!), skank.
Okay, now, what are the worst things you can call a guy? Fag, girl, bitch, pussy. I’ve even heard the term “mangina.”
Notice anything? The worst thing you can call a girl is a girl. The worst thing you can call a guy is a girl. Being a woman is the ultimate insult. Now tell me that’s not royally fucked up."
