Re: Orson Scott Card "Please don't boycott my film!"

Nothing stops a boycott quite like giving it more attention in the press, using the old "I am rubber, you are glue" gambit to accuse the boycotters of not tolerating intolerance, and reminding everyone of what a bigoted douchenozzle you are.

I doubt this boycott is going to be hugely effective, but I do kind of feel bad for the other people involved who just wanted to make a cool scifi film without being dragged down by this asshole's reputation. In the case of the Superman Anthology comic, people were simply asking for his segment to be removed beforehand, so it didn't harm the other participants. I mean, they knew what they were getting into by signing a deal with him, I guess, but I do feel a little bad for the other non-homophobic people involved in making the movie.
My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
