I'm reading the third book-- "Xenocide"-- in the "Ender's Game" series, and the author's incessant "white knighting" for, probably, his own real-life mother, through his fictitious character "Novinha" is absolutely maddening.
At age six, Andrew Wiggin was stripped from his sister-- who he loved as much as life itself-- and his parents, from his school, his classmates, and everything he'd ever known. He was then thrown into a military academy for the entirety of his childhood, where he was deliberately and systematically isolated and abused by his own teachers-- to the point where he was forced to brutally murder a classmate in self-defense, and was ultimately manipulated and tricked into destroying an entire alien species: total xenocide.
On the ACE test, that's like a 100 out of 10.
Meanwhile, young Novinho's parents died heroes-- they were even sainted by the Catholic Church-- curing a plague which saved the entire human population on her planet. Yeah, it sucks to have your parents taken from you-- but she wasn't brutalized and isolated: rather, she had an entire community to take care of her, and support her. Compared to what Ender went through, Novinha had a model childhood.
In "Xenocide", Andrew is using every fibrous ounce of his being to save not just the humans on the planet, and not just the piggies, and not just the hive queen, but the first-ever sentient computer program, in "Jane". In the process, one of his (loved) step-sons died, in the work of also trying to save everyone.
So does the woman Novinho double down with the man, Andrew and everyone else, using the death of her male son-- who courageously died on the front-lines a hero and a martyr-- as a motivator to finally solve all of these existential quandaries? Nope: she turns into a psychotic bitch, who leaves Andrew and abandons the whole effort.
And whose fault is it, according to the conversations the author writes into the supporting characters? Andrew's and the step-son's! It's the men's fault, that the woman is bat-shit crazy. "She had a rough childhood, it's not her fault she's a back-stabbing bitch!" And Andrew is broken up that he lost her-- he wants her back in his life!
Again, I'm sure there's a back-story in the author's own experience with his mother, and he's vicariously white knighting. It's a common pattern. Either way, if this book isn't the most "MGTOW" novel I've ever read, then I'd like for someone to show me a stronger example.
