Anti gay Opponents Work To Remove Some Rights Of Gays In Washington State

There is a signature drive for referendum 71 to eliminate the Domestic Partnership Expansion Law (called "everything but marriage") of 2009 in Washington state. The new law gives many of the rights of marriage to same-sex couples, without changing the current state definition.
Anti gay Opponents of equal rights have phrased the question in a very confusing fashion. If the referendum gets enough votes to make the ballot, gay people and pro civil rights advocates would need to vote YES, because the referendum is not whether it should be repealed but whether it should be re-enacted.
(This wording is going to trick a lot of people. It is a shameful petition meant to confuse people into voting against their own interest.)
