Just wondering where people are on this issue. Referendum 71 would rescind the “everything but marriage” law, which grants registered same-sex couples the same legal rights (other than marriage). In debating this topic, I’ve heard people say ”why can’t they settle for civil unions”? Well, Referendum 71 isn’t enamored with those either.
So what’s your view?
A. Gay marriage.
B. Civil unions or registered partnerships (the new Washington state law).
C. I’ll sign up for Referendum 71.
My vote is A.
UPDATE: Here’s an article that shows that the discrimination needs to end nationwide. Washington state couple meets insensitive Florida hospital.
