12. When an artist foregrounds his political/social views so aggressively...

it's entirely appropriate to consider those views when assessing the author's work. The artist can't rail so vociferously against homosexuality and then complain afterward when people use that as a lens for critiquing his work.


Personally, I don't care for Card's work. I tried--really tried--and failed to get into it about 20 years ago, and that was long before I knew about his primitive and offensive bigotry.
