HOLY FUCKING FUCK
I’m not going to see Ender’s Game. This is not a revelation. I’m queer. My opinion of Orson Scott Card’s politics and his flimsy rationalizations ison record. I don’t buy books he writes. I don’t watch the movies based on them.
But I’ve still got a paperback on my shelf — battered and worn in the way beloved books get, spine floppy, corners bent. On the title page, in faded blue ballpoint pen, it’s inscribed: “To Rachel – a friend of Ender.”
It’s not wrong. It would be easier if it were.
Soyeah. It’s never quite as simple as I’d like it to be.
This got to me.
I was banned from Virtual Battle School by OSC himself at 14/15 for RPing a gay character (I was given the option to stop, of course, and not be banned, but that wasn’t much of a choice). I wish so very much I still had the email exchange with the board moderator. Mostly I remember being…resigned. It was my first exploration of my own sexuality through writing, and it was scary to put those inner thoughts out in the real world, even in the mouth of a fictional character. Being told that such thoughts (benign; my sexual maturity came rather late) were not appropriate for a family site seemed— expected. They didn’t seem safe for /me/, either.
Since then, I’ve been through more copies of Ender’s Game than I can count (purchased primarily secondhand) because I keep giving them to friends. I saw the advanced screening of the movie, and it made me happy. The first time I read the book— at 14ish, after a mixed two weeks at summer camp where I was called ‘gay’ as an insult and /didn’t know what it meant/— I finished it in roughly eight hours. I closed the paperback, went downstairs to dinner, returned to my room, and reread the entire thing again. It was a difficult time for me. I was extremely rural and extremely gifted, and isolated as fuck as a result. I’d always found refuge in books, but something about Ender allowed me to connect with him as a character in a way I never had before. Timing, probably, and almost certainly his intelligence (though I never had any illusions that I was /Ender/ smart), certainly his own social isolation. Two years later, I was accepted into my own Battle School, my state’s Math and Science boarding school for gifted students, and I settled happily into mid-teenager-hood as more of a…Shen.
Early this year, the fourth of my PhD program, I took a four-month leave of absence to recover after a frankly ridiculous year of mystery illness that, despite being finally diagnosed and treated, left me with an obnoxious case of depression that sapped my motivation and concentration. When I came back to work, I /felt/ better, but I didn’t know if that would translate to actual success, and I have no ambivalence (a word I learned from Ender) about finishing my degree. If I master out, I will feel like I failed. I’m behind, and it’s still a possibility, but I’m working as hard as I can. Keeping my focus on my final goal. A couple weeks prior to returning, I got my fourth tattoo, on my left forearm. It reads: “the enemy’s gate is down”.
When I was 12 I had a lot of trouble with violence in my school. I was bullied and had decided fighting back with my fists was what I should do. I wanted to be the hero in my stories and not the one who needed to be rescued.
I was sent to a therapist after a particularly bad tussle and he gave me a copy of Ender’s Game. This book taught me that I didn’t have to use violence to win against my bullies. It taugh me m differences were attributes and not defects. I may not agree with OSC but his book changed my life. I can’t wait to see the film.
As the marketing machine for the Ender’s Game movie ramps up (like you, I saw several commercials during some of my favorite shows this week), LGBT advocates such as the group Geeks Out are urging you to Skip Ender’s Game because it the invention of a bigoted anti-LGBT advocate and racist who has used the money he made off the story to spread hate and intolerance.
Reblog. Spread the word.
they’re even organizing awesome parties to go to instead!
I’m not saying you guys shouldn’t see this movie but seriously please don’t see this movie.
If you wanna see the movie THAT BADLY (I’ll admit even without the writer being a horrible human being I have little to no interest in seeing it) just torrent or download it. Seriously, don’t give this guy any more money to further spread his bigoted influence
There’s better scifi out there to enjoy than Ender’s Game (stuff that isn’t, ya know, produced by bigots.)
it’s really important to me that people boycott this movie because there is a very good chance that money from it will be used to harm me personally and all of my LGBT friends and siblings
if you want to see it please at the very least do not give your money to it & download online
people intentionally hurt me frequently and i do not like the idea of others unintentionally giving their money to my oppression so if my followers could reblog this to get the word out that would be cool
Friendly reminder that Orson Scott Card has gotten all of the money from this movie already. He was paid in advance. WRITERS DO NOT GET ROYALTIES FOR MOVIES THEY GET A FLAT FEE FROM THE STUDIO FOR MOVIE RIGHTS.
Friendly reminder that Lionsgate does.
Friendly reminder that Lionsgate is donating money from the movie to LGBTQA organizations.
Regardless of whether or not you’re boycotting the movie, remember that people interested by the movie may want to read the books and the books will probably be heavily marketed with the release of the movie.
OSC will get money from the book sales generated by the movie, so please remember to encourage people not to buy the books (or buy them secondhand, or borrow from a library or friend).
THANK YOU SEPH I totally forgot to mention this (again). If you want to keep OSC from getting money, then if you want to read the books, yeah, buy the books secondhand because he does get royalties from those. They’re also dirt cheap online. That way, you’ll actually be doing something towards affecting his income.
If you don’t read the books because he’s a horrible douchecanoe? That’s totally your prerogative and I respect that. However, it also won’t do anything towards lowering his profit, and neither will boycotting the movie, so if you do so, please don’t call it “activism” because you’re not screwing a homophobic bigot out of his money, you’re screwing people who have put in time and effort to make this movie out of their money, as well as a studio that has a long history of being supportive of LGBTQA rights.
Also, feel free to boycott whatever the fuck you want, but Ender’s Game is a book that can have a profoundly positive impact on kids/teens, especially gifted ones. I read it when newly-teenage, in a not-so-good time for me, and it made a huge impact. Yeah, the author is a dickface. He still wrote an amazing story. It should be read.
I am going to thos movie. It changed my life when I was a child. Also money for Lions Gate.
