Plus, even taking all that aside, what he said doesn't make a lick of sense. And I'm actually pro-BND. This demands a retraction and an apology.

> > Wow. Are you gay? If not, than how can you speak for an entire population? I don't see this as a backhanded slap either way. It is an extreme example of the kind of faulty logic that many people are using for their hatred of the current direction. Probably not the smartest way to make his point, but it was not doubt done sarcastically and to make a point.
> The only faulty logic I see here is coming from Guggenheim. If you don't support BND, you DO support gay marriage? As if that's a bad thing?

He, in no way, stated that gay marriage was a bad thing. That is your assumption. It is not implied in the least in his comment.

>Why is he inserting culturally divisive politics into a discussion about Spider-Man?

Why? To get the attention of those that have that viewpoint and with the intention of making one stop and reconsider their viewpoint.

>I don't see the sarcasm that you apparently see, just a man saying something incredibly stupid and ill thought-out.

As I stated already, I don't disagree with you about it being ill-conceived.

>And really, I might be gay for all you know.

Yes, you may. Which is why I asked rather than assumed one way or the other.

>Whether I am or not is immaterial to this discussion.

No it isn't. You are speaking for an entire population.

>I am white too, but I think I could wade into a debate on racism all the same.

No doubt, though your comment that his statement was an insult to all gay people is a generalization and generalizations are tricky. On top of that, if you said that an entire race was offended by *blank*, and you are not of that race, you are speaking out of turn.
