Reply Subj: Marc Guggenheim uses homophobia to defend "One More Day"

Marc Guggenheim's response to fans who are still upset over "One More Day:"

"Part of the problem with the controversy behind One More Day is the understanding of what was retconned overstates the extent of what was done. Everything that happened in the last twenty plus years of comic book history happened! The only difference is that Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson weren't married. They still dated. They still lived together. They still love each other. They just weren't married. Judging from the letters and death threats we received, I think some people were confused. It all still happened. Here's my attitude, if anyone is upset about the marriage going away, then they must all be pro gay marriage. Because if you're pro gay marriage, you understand the distinction between a marriage and a civil union -- that a civil union is not equal to a marriage. We downgraded Mary Jane and Peter to a civil union. If that bothers you, then you're pro gay marriage."

Dear Marc Guggeinheim,

I'm against "One More Day." And, even though I'm a heterosexual man, I also support the right of homosexuals to marry.

You, on the other hand, are an inexcusable idiot.

Please shut your hole.

Thank you.

Man, that's great.

The two issues are completely unrelated. I expect Guggenheim will make a backtrack/apology in the next couple of days.

Marvel must be really disappointed in BND. Every time we see an interview, its about how the fans are "wrong in their feelings". Wacker and Breevroot were saying how people shouldn't let OMD prevent them from picking up BND, saying the two were unrelated and the current creative team had nothing to do with OMD. How it's unfair to judge them for the work of previous creators.

And now Guggenheim keeps whining about how "fans don't understand" what BND is all about.

My suggestion, Marvel and their creators should just stop bringing it up and "begging" people to read Amazing Spider-Man. Let the work stand on it's own.
