Taxed and screwed.
OK, another way that gay couples are treated differently than straight couples. So it comes time to pay our income taxes and guess what? The fucking federal government WILL NOT allow us to get married, but we have to file our taxes as if we were married. With new changes to the tax laws, since we live in a community property state and we are registered domestic partners we have to combine our income, split it down the middle and then file separately. They want the most money they can get from us, but don't want to let us actually be able to file with that little box checked married.
