    Which is amusing, considering that Orson Scott Card is a Mormon from North Carolina, and despite self-defining as a democrat, he's pretty much a through and through conservative.

    The police need to charge the kid's parent with filing a fraudulent police report

    Wonder if Mom has any idea what the average 14 year old has seen/done in this day and age. Silly cunt.

    If your kids have ever said any of the words you find offensive in my class, then I should be able to say them too. It would be nice if the admins. would support the teacher like mine supports us. The parents hoot and holler, but they fuck off eventually when the admins. stonewall them.

    Another ironic thing about this story is that Ender's Game would be a perfect story to read to a kid who is being bullied at school.

    I'm so glad my kids are grown.

    I couldn't deal with the stupidity of the modern school system.

    I read this novel a couple of months ago for the first time, and I can't think of anything "pornographic" about it, and seeing as though it's about 9-12 year old kids I think even my fucked up desensitized mind would have noticed.

    Also, it was written by a legit Mormon. OSC doesn't really venture into that kind of territory. Like I said, this is a really weird author and book to pick on.

    Well, the kids are nude at times during the story (Uncle Paul, blah, blah, blah).
    Spoiler for those idiots who haven't read one of the best sci-fi books of all time
    Some of the Dragon Army kids are naked while they're running to their first battle, trying to put on their suits (Bean, as it turns out). And Ender's confrontation with Bonzo was in the showers.
    But those are all cases of a non-body modesty society and culture, not anything pornographic. It's not like the kids were at all interested in each other physically. Shit, even in his novels that deal with sexual relations OSC is pretty circumspect about it all.

    There's also a YA reader of Ender's Game. Knowing OSC, I wouldn't be surprised if it took out the swears and glossed over any nudity, but the original Ender's Game was always a fairly grown up story. Not "adult" in the "pornographic" sense, but definitely grown up in the themes and the moral issues it deals with.

    I'm guessing this pleasure to be around is upset that Card writes of a Universe where Earth isn't at the center.

    Yeah I remember the nudity, but that's not "pornographic" unless this cunt is getting off from the idea.

    I hate how everything in the world has to be changed to accommodate these types of people. If you don't want your child exposed to that shit, take them out of that school and put them in another.

    I bet the little queer that complained to mommy is a short, fat, redheaded, pussy who is in the band. That's what I picture when I think of a 14 year old who actually talks to their parents about how school went and what happened in class today and all that. He probably got embarrassed by the full erection he had while the teacher was reading the story.
