Actually, no. He also claimed that fans were overstating the effect of the retcon when in his description all that changed was that Peter and MJ were not married. (Whether this description is in fact true remains to be seen, especially given that Quesada publicly stated that he considered it likely that Mary Jane did not get pregnant in the retconned continuity).
Also, as has already been pointed out repeatedly, a civil union and living together are two very different things.
> * 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.

And what reason did Guggenheim give to assume that fans opposing the retconning away of Spider-Man's marriage are not supportive of gay marriage as well?
