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.

Congratulations Internet, you've done it again!

This sounds like Guggenheim is for equal gay marriage rights.

The point he's making is that:

* Some readers have been freaking out that instead of being MARRIED Peter and MJ were just living together.

* In most places in the world homosexual couples can't get MARRIED. They can only live together. Like Peter and Mary Jane.

* Thus, if you view Peter and MJ's living together as a lesser relationship than being married then surely you should want to do something for the millions of couples in real life who aren't allowed to get MARRIED.
