Orson Scott Card: Mentor, Friend, Bigot

The truth, of course, is that Card had been avidly homophobic since long before I knew him. That at the same time we were talking about character development and the shapes of stories, he was railing against marriage rights for same-sex couples and insisting homosexuality was a byproduct of child abuse. Whether the rampaging extremism he’s exploded into is a product of a significant change in perspective or just less tact and a larger platform, I’ll never know: We fell out of touch long before, for which I’m cowardly grateful.

Oof.

I looked at the comments. Why, why, why did I look at the comments.

(It possibly is connected to why am I still awake, another thing I do not know the answer to. I'm actually going to bed, but I clicked this before doing so and now I need to go wash my eyes.)

OSC is a rough person to think about. So talented, and yet so... so... well. Him.
