Lying beneath a grunting Orson Scott, Mrs. Card grimaces and fantasizes about Carmen Electra…
Roy at alicublog ponders the other worldly prose of Ender’s daddy:
Card: In the first place, no law in any state in the United States now or ever has forbidden homosexuals to marry. The law has never asked that a man prove his heterosexuality in order to marry a woman, or a woman hers in order to marry a man.
Any homosexual man who can persuade a woman to take him as her husband can avail himself of all the rights of husbandhood under the law. And, in fact, many homosexual men have done precisely that, without any legal prejudice at all.
Ditto with lesbian women. Many have married men and borne children. And while a fair number of such marriages in recent years have ended in divorce, there are many that have not.
…and I say, “Good for Karen Santorum for sticking it out and bearing seven children for Rick while enduring a cumulative 19 minutes of bleak loveless missionary sex”. Oh that this country should have more of her hearty self-denying breed….
