Guys, if you like Orson Scott Card’s works despite him being a raging homophobe, there’s nothing wrong with that. They’re good books.
If you know about his raging homophobia and still *pay* for his works, there’s something wrong with that. Normally I would never advocate pirating, but it’s really the best option. Don’t feel bad about liking great books, especially since you can find them free on the internet if you know where to look. Do feel bad about contributing to OSC’s wallet. Same with the movie — I’m going to watch it as soon as I can find it free on the internet.
Reblogged for anyone who wanted to see that movie.
You don’t need to feel bad about it either - the actors and movie staff have already been paid. They have their money. They won’t lose their house or anything if you pirate the movie. (However, the studio may seriously reconsider ever making another movie deal with OSC if the box office sales don’t at least break even with the production costs.)
Kickass Torrents and The Pirate Bay are currently the two best torrent sites out there; KT has torrents for all of OSC’s books and usually have them in several languages too. Both will probably have cams of the movie within days of the premiere, but cams are usually very poor-quality so if you’d prefer better picture and audio and can handle the wait a DVDrip usually turns up after a few months. (You’ll need a BitTorrent client such as uTorrent or Azureus to use torrents. If your ISP blocks torrent traffic or you want to torrent anonymously, there are a number of guides that can show you how to do so.) I recommend torrents over direct downloads as they are more reliable.
I will suggest this route too for any other media that you find problematic and don’t want to contribute money to - piracy is like a boycott, only you don’t miss out on anything.Source: the-right-writing
