Just when you thought gay issues had no place in ice cream thanks to Bill Nye’s bizarre gender spectrum animation, socialist ice cream pushers Ben & Jerry’s go and do this: the company is refusing service to customers in the name of marriage equality. Let that sink in for a second. Because in America, Christian bakers were sued for NOT serving gay marriage cakes. You ‘member? I ‘member.
In Australia, the ice cream company won’t sell two scoops of the same flavor until gay marriage is legalized. From LGBT Nation:
The sweet retailer will refuse to serve customers two scoops of the same ice cream flavor until the government legalizes same-sex marriage down under.
“Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favourite two scoops of Cookie Dough in a waffle cone. But you find out you are not allowed – Ben & Jerry’s has banned two scoops of the same flavor. You’d be furious!” the corporation said in a statement.
When it comes to all things LGBT, the left goes all out, but only in non-Muslim nations (see Disturbing LGBT Song Debuts on Bill Nye’s Show. Backfires Miserably… and LADYLIKE: Caitlyn Jenner Will ‘Go After Republicans Opposed to LGBT Rights’). Rather than taking the fight for “gay rights” to places like Indonesia or the UAE, Ben & Jerry’s is making a symbolic mandate against their own customers in hopes Fred and Larry can join hands and start a game of hide the sausage. While wearing matching rings. Sanctioned by government. I christen the new ice cream flavor: Tallywhacker Toffee.
Look, if Ben & Jerry’s wants to tell their customers off while taking a social justice stand, who cares. They’re a private company. They’re free to do what they want. Incidentally, goes both ways. If customers don’t like being lectured about Tammy and Tonya getting wedding cake all over their matching wedding gowns, then making sweet awkward scissor love after? They’re free to patronize other ice cream shops. I christen this new ice cream flavor: Pussytachio Galore.
On the ice cream names:
Dare you to look at Ben & Jerry’s ice cream the same way. Happy slurping.
Remember when Starbucks wanted to talk about race? The market decided it was a dumbass idea. The market can make the same choice here. Also, there are plenty of other ice cream brands which just serve the customer what they want: ice cream sans lecture.
Now watch Steven make a butt of himself. Grab your ice cream.
