The alignment chart was posted by an aphobic troll, and that’s important
I don’t know how many of you have ever read Ender’s Game (the author is a piece of shit) but there’s a moment fairly early on where Graff tells all the new recruits arriving at the Battle School that they’re all nothing compared to Ender, that he’s the greatest there’s ever been and none of them will ever amount to half of what he is, so they had better bow and scrape and try to be good enough to lick Ender’s boots.
Ender immediately recognizes this as a moment of betrayal, because now all the other boys hate him, which is exactly what Graff intended. Graff built Ender up and insulted everyone else to make it seem as though he was on Ender’s side, with the intention of turning them all against Ender.
There’s a post going around right now of an alignment chart that places gay people and trans women in the ‘evil’ categories while aces, aros, and nonbinary people are in the ‘good’ category. The blog is obviously a troll sockpuppet account. When people point that out, there’s been a ton of backlash saying that it doesn’t matter because the post is still awful.
It DOES matter.
Because the person who posted this is Graff. They’re intentionally shouting from the rooftops that aces, aros, and nb people are great and gay men, lesbians, and trans women are evil not because they believe it, but because their intention is to focus the anger of the latter group directly onto the former group.
It was absolutely homophobic and transmisogynistic to post that shit. But the goal was so CLEARLY to do something openly bigoted and disgusting and then give those who were angry (as they should have been) the perfect target for their fury.
In a month or so, this alignment chart is probably going to be on some masterpost of why aspec people are bigots and shouldn’t be allowed in the lgbt community. It’ll be right there next to other troll posts like the ‘let’s make our own slur’ post and so many others.
