Do these people seriously believe those with minority views shouldn't be entitled to any kind of employment? What kind of vile view is that?
This is precisely the issue for me.

I have no problem with any individual who refuses to buy something Card's written (actually, I have no problem with any individual refusing to buy anything they don't want to for any reason).

I don't have a problem with someone expressing their views on Card and recommending to others that they not buy it either.

I start to have a problem when we get petitions, as the article says, "calling for DC to remove him from the book." That is crossing the line. Don't like his Superman story? Don't buy it. But to lobby for him to lose his job? Sickening, just sickening.
So you can boycott a product, that's fine and dandy. You can also tell anyone in the world you wish that you are doing so and why, except the company that actually produces the product, because that would be sickening...

So it goes.
