That may seem odd to some, or silly, but the fact remains that I have a gay sibling and I care much more about her and her partner than I do Card or anything he's written. So that's where my support would lie.
I respect whatever choice you end up making. I'd have to swear off nearly all entertainment if I couldn't divorce my attitude toward an artist's politics and their product. Even in this project, I'm sure it's filled with people with whom I disagree.

I tend to agree with OSC on politics (although I do disagree with him to some extent on gay marriage).

I'd see Ender's Game even if I was gay myself though.
