Just a dude, makin his way.
Funny thing about Orson Scott Card. I was really into Ender's Game when I was about 12 and started looking for other books by him, and I came across a little book called Songmaster. In the course of the book the titular boy genius has a homosexual affair with an older man. As I remember it the scene was sensitively written and actually pretty sensual. Now I grew up in a conservative household and am pretty straight, and hadn't given much thought to what gay people did or felt, so that book started me thinking that being gay wasn't that abnormal after all. Orson Scott Card might be a horrible bigot in real life, but I'm pretty sure he's a closet case, and his books are actually pretty sympathetic to same sex attraction.
Not just comparable to the lynching of blacks. "Just as bad and just as wrong."
@anon8015 It's so creepy to me how you're trying to deny the author the right to respond to her rape with her actual feelings about it. Rape is a denial of agency, and your view would only compound that denial. One can recognize the causes of crime without having sympathy for criminals. A victim does not have any obligation to empathize with his or her aggressor.
The problem with finding 3,300 dead pigs in a Chinese river is that a half hour later you want to find 3,300 more.
It's sad that the revocation of her title just means that her options are that much more limited, making a career in porn that much more likely.
If you're admitting to blowing Dave Coulier in a movie theater, your confessionality is pretty fucking real.
@deepomega The fingerblast was scintillating. It foreshadowed a sense of boning.
Sounds like some primo Balk j/o fuel.
Hey guys, remember "binders full of women?" I can't believe it was only a couple weeks ago. This campaign has lasted too long.
God does not want rape, sometimes he just intends for it to happen. Why do you have to twist his words?
