Dave Lartigue On Orson Scott Card And Boycotting Comics

“Orson Scott Card isn’t being taken to task solely for his opinions, idiotic and thuggish as they are, but also for his actions. He sits on the board of the National Organization for Marriage, which lobbies and works against basic civil rights for gay people. He is not merely a tool spewing hatred and bile at gay people, though it would be enough if he were; he’s also actively working against them. And yet, numerous troglodytes have shuffled into comment sections to accuse the people speaking against Card of ‘bullying’ and ‘intolerance.’ Asking people to not support homophobia is ‘intellectual terrorism’; working to deny a group basic civil rights is ‘an opinion.'” More at Dave Ex Machina.
