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.
