So I ended up working on a small PDF to try and put together a small summary of the key points that people seem to be discussing or confused by in the marriage referendum. It’s an A4 PDF for no other reason than that seems like a good size. It could no doubt be tweaked a bit but I guess that’s besides the point.
Thanks to @brian_dneen, @mneylon, @damienmulley and @imisaninja for input, ideas and feedback :)
Here’s a 1200×1697 pixel png of it in case that’s more your thing :)
I call it Straight Facts!
Feel free to download it print it / pass it onto friends.
If you’ve got any other suggestions / corrections let me know and I’ll see about updating it.

You might not recognise the people in the photo. They are however being used by the No campaign on Marriage Equality.
I can’t honestly say what their views are hence I included a disclaimer at the bottom of the image. What I can tell you is that apparently the Stock Photographer and the models involved in the original no poster graphic aren’t happy. You don’t have much choice as to where your images appear when you’ve signed a model release and distribute your stock images to multiple stock image sites. I can try to do my part though.
Here’s what Adam Hills ( who I’ve never heard of before ) has to say about things (hat tip to broadsheet.ie )
You can also read what the stock photographer has to say about things.
There’s a post over on the Blacknight blog about it
I won’t be in Ireland to vote. I’ve never really taken that much interest in Politics in the past but this isn’t about politics this is about equality. I’ve donated to the Yes Campaign and I’m trying to encourage people to vote. I have two small kids and when they grow up I want them to have the same rights I have no matter what. So I can only hope that everyone goes out and votes yes on the day.
