Courtesy of Chris Sims (via Tom the Dog), I see that Orson Scott Card's latest attempt at rationally explaining his completely nutbar ideas about homosexuality in general and gay marriage in particular are crazier than usual.
And here's the thing. As a responsible comic book store owner, I *have* to carry Ender's Game. A lot of my customers are excited about it, and honestly, I've bought stuff by writers who I know to have differing opinions from mine (pretty much anything by Chuck Dixon, at least). But... Card has reached a new level of crazy, a level I like to call Dave Sim crazy, where I feel dirty having even the barest association with him, even by selling his book.
So I think I've got a solution. I'm going to figure out what my profits are on the issues of Ender's Game, and when the miniseries is complete, I'm gonna write out a check to a Gay Rights charity here in Austin, and then I'm going to send a nice note to Mr. Card letting him know how much his work has helped to fund said charity. That seems a nice fuck you message that also happens to put some money in the hands of folks who need it.
