The trailer for Ender’s Game, which hits theaters this November, was released this week. As a geek and a sci-fi fan, I should be excited. But as a gay man, I have a different reaction:
You see, Orson Scott Card, the creator of the book and executive producer of the movie, is a rampant homophobe. I could give you the details myself, but you can find them better written and researched here and here. In short, he’s a crusader against marriage equality, claims all homosexuals are that way because they were molested as children, and writes stories punishing men for having gay sex. What a guy!
Do you really want to give this guy a single penny to add to his existing fortune? Me neither.
