There’s a great acronym from the computer industry called FUD, it stands for Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt. In short, it means to attempt to influence not with facts, but by appealing to peoples’ most base instincts. There is a ton of FUD in relation to Ref 71, but the reality is this –
- Ref 71 does not grant special rights (these are the same rights that married people have)
- Ref 71 is not just for “teh gay”, domestic partnerships are extensively used by seniors as well
These are the facts. No amount of Fear, Uncertainty, or Doubt change them. This isn’t about special rights, or hurting kids, or redefining marriage, it’s about equal rights for everyone.If you’re a Washington resident please vote YES on Referendum 71.
