> Good to know! I guess that means that, the next time overly defensive Spider-Man writers say something stupid, I'm entitled to slur black people! Except, no, wait, that's NOT what it means, because I'M NOT AN IDIOT.

> Um, no, you fail for definitions of "civil union." A "civil union" is more than "living together for a few years." There's, like, actual PAPERWORK and LICENSES and stuff that are required. You're thinking of "common-law marriage." If that's what Guggenheim was thinking of, too, then both you AND Guggenheim fail for definitions of "civil union," which would be yet another reason why he shouldn't have said anything about this, because he literally doesn't know what he's talking about.

If Guggenheim doesn't know the legal differences between a "civil union" and a "common law marriage," then it makes his comments even more ridiculous. He was a friggin' LAWYER by profession and the writer of numerous legal dramas for crying out loud!
