Reply Subj: Marc Guggenheim uses homophobia to defend "One More Day"
Posted: Sun Sep 21, 2008 at 11:50:01 pm EDT

And he has a complete lack of understanding of the difference between marriage, civil union, and "just living together for a few years."

Not to mention brining up a social and political issue, making vast assumptions about thousands of people, and brining all into a comic book discussion. It just doesn't make any sense.

Those that respond that I don't know exactly what he meant since I don't know his tone or whatever, that's true. But it seems to me, the way it's written, to be very derogatory to support gay marriage. It's like he's playing off the fear of homosexuality in hopes that the people with anti-OMD opinions that they see the ridiculousness in their views because of OMGZERZ TEH GAYS!!!!

All the other BND writers, at the very least, have the potential to be good. Guggenheim is by far the worst, and if this speeds up the process of getting him out, all the better.

> "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."
