Since it's a blog, I'll post a dead link to the "article".
Not sure if it really counts as "news" either, but here goes:

Wowser… that majorly sucks ass (in a not so good way! ) Shows me again how liberal The Netherlands is and how lucky I am to be gay in my own country.
Netherland + non-Liberal = Neanderthal?

IMHO: If gay people are required to pay this tax simply for who we love and live with then the entire tax system should be re-aligned to remove any taxes which do not apply to us .Like school system taxes… if you do not have children you should not have to pay taxes into a system that has no benefit to you as an individual.
As single taxpayers we support many programs that wil never have any benefit for us. I for one am sick of the higher taxes we are forced into paying because we can't get married and qualify for the discounts given heterosexuals for simply breeding.
It is definitely time for another World Wide "TEA PARTY" and taxation without representation is just as wrong today as in the 1700's!!!
BTW: I do realize this is not in the States but I feel sure this couple pays thru taxes for many services they will never benefit from directly.I am just saying that if we pay this tax then that should make us exempt from other taxes by way of equality in taxes.To be required to pay taxes for who we love should be so illegal that the entire planet should revolt and one would think they would. If the taxes for families increased due to SINGLES not having to pay for school taxes there would be such an uproar you would never hear the end of it. Heteros seldom want to consider life from another perspective and politicians never allow these thoughts to enter into their considerations.
