Karma, both good and bad...

First, Orson Scott Card is pleading for "tolerance" now that DOMA has been struck down. Riiight. I'm sure this has no relation to the fact that "Ender's Game" is coming out later this year and there's already an organized boycott against you. Sorry, pal - you made that bed, and now you get to lie in it (but not with a man, of course). Suck it up.

Conversely, Dustin Hoffman knew exactly why he wanted to make "Tootsie", and for all the right reasons. His personal introspection and his awareness of how society shaped him (and how he could shape society) is a delight.

Finally, PENNSIC IN 10 DAYS OMG.

Remember the early 90's Gaylaxians discussion as to whether to boycott Card's works based upon his initial homophobic writings that were published in his church documents? At that time, the decision was that he was entitled to express his personal beliefs in the appropriate forum, so we did not pursue it. In my opinion, he has subsequently gone far beyond an "appropriate forum" for expressing his beliefs.

Indeed. Can't backtrack now, buddy. At least the Exodus folks had the good graces to "come to Jesus" and apologize for being such heinous jerks for 40 years.
