9 Things About The Ender's Game Trailer
For a lot of other people it's the tip of Orson Scott Card's iceberg of bigotry. Whilst I wouldn't question for a second that Card's tediously overly articulated, passive aggressive beliefs are disgusting, I don't really see them in the story (yes, Buggers, I know, but I'd argue that's seeing Card's attitudes where, for once, they aren't)[...]
Ender's Game and the Child Soldier Blues – Look! It Moves! By Adi Tantimedh
I had this opinion long before Orson Scott Card's anti-gay views became public.
