I first read the book “Ender’s Game” in college and I loved it. The story was intense and gripping. The characters have depth, flaws and are transformed by their experiences. I went on to read many other books by Orson Scott Card which I also enjoyed. When I heard about the film adaptation of Ender’s Game I couldn’t wait to go see it!
Recently several friends informed me of something incredibly disappointing, which I confirmed with online sources. It turns out that Orson Scott Card is a raging homophobe. So now I am boycotting the film and any future works by OSC. I cannot in good conscience support someone who publicly espouses such hateful ideas. I’m not the only one either.
