I am so disappointed in Orson Scott Card. Not because he’s against gay marriage, he has the right to have whatever opinion he wants. No, I’m disappointed because his article is so irrational. I’d do a long, detailed refutation of his arguments, but Dylan has already done a really fantastic one here.
Oh, and this list of reasons why gays mustn’t be allowed to marry is brilliant. I am tempted to print it out and post it everywhere I go.
Sample: Heterosexual marriage has been around for a long time, and it hasn’t changed at all: women are property, Blacks can’t marry Whites, and divorce is illegal.

    Heh. I chucked Puppet of the Shadow of the Hegemon’s Game of Doom or whatever the hell it was – like, the fourth or fifth book in the Ender Saga – across the room when some scientist character in it started nattering about how men and women are biologically meant to couple and that urge cannot be overcome. I haven’t read a page further in that series since. The part that pisses me off the most is that I plodded SO PATIENTLY through all the boring stuff to get to the good stuff in all those ridiculously long books, only to be rewarded for my persistence with the single most infuriating thing I have ever come across in fiction. I haven’t really cared for OSC ever since.
