The girl who was my elementary school girl...
my girlfriend just started a wind waker file
and she named the hero guuurl
i just typoed jalapeños as jalapenis and i”m
so a friend on facebook said, “i know orson scott card is a douche but ender’s game in imax was fuckin awesome”
i replied “you should donate what you paid for your tickets to an lgbtq organization to counteract osc’s douchiness”
his friend replied, “I think all of that is silly. Gay marriage will soon be acceptable everywhere, just give it time. Orson Scott Card alone isn’t going to stop the inevitable!”
i said “marriage equality is nowhere near the only issue.”
and she replied “The segregation of black and white didn’t end overnight. Nor will the issues with gay rights. You just have to stick up for what you believe in and hang in the battle for equal rights. Just as you believe same sex marriage should be acceptable, others do not. That doesn’t necessarily make them “wrong” (unless they’re just plain assholes about it, which is pretty common). It’s a matter of finding a happy median and that’s pretty difficult with a topic like same sex marriage. Some people just don’t understand yet, which is why I’ve always said give it time. It may not seem like it, but there have been accomplishments on your side over the years”
are you fucking kidding me right now
I don’t think Sattlers response should ever be forgotten, especially in light of how this question was asked again at a panel at NYCC!
The problem became apparent when one fan pointed out that DC had killed off so many of its female/non-straight/ethnically diverse characters recently that it was starting to feel like tokenism to her. Panel moderator John Cunningham, the VP of DC’s marketing, was quick to assure her that tokenism was never the intent of anyone creating these comics… and that the concern was perhaps something that “you [the fan who made this comment] are bringing to the table.
good to know the responses are as stellar as ever
