When I was 11 years old my father handed me a copy of Ender's Game. I'd been reading science fiction for a while and the escape it provided was a life-saver. I was a lonely kid, often unable to connect to other children. I was precocious. I was a nerd. And I was gay.
My hope is that my lecture, "What's Morally Wrong With Homosexuality?", will provide support to everyone struggling against the idea that there's something wrong/deviant/unnatural about same-sex relationships -- whether they live in marriage-equality states or not.
The Ender's Game author's hateful beliefs have relegated him so far to the margins of society that it's beginning to threaten his bottom line. So is he publicly recanting his anti-gay views and apologizing? Of course not. Instead, Card has the audacity to beg his pro-LGBT fans for "tolerance."
