In a victory for HUMAN rights, same sex couples now have the legal right to marry in Vermont. This is good news for people who believe in equality and justice for all (and of course for those same sex couples who want to get married).
To celebrate, Ben and Jerry’s Ice cream has renamed “Chubby Hubby” to “Hubby Hubby.”
I dig that Ben and Jerry’s did this, but my questions is: what about the lesbians? They are gay and have the right to marry as well, but this “Hubby Hubby” business is sexist. It just assumes that all homosexuals are men (which might technically be true because “homo” culturally means gay man, but the word “homo” as in “homo sapiens sapiens” really just means human), and does not account for all the ladies out there that like other ladies. In fact, by not including them it discriminates them and keeps them from getting their equal share of the gimmicky ice cream market.
Now, if Ben and Jerry’s came up with a flavor that was like “Cherry Licker” (not the best name but the only one I could think of at the moment) or something then that would be cool because then not only would homosexual male and female couples have the right to marry their same sex object of affection, but they both would have their very own specially named ice cream with which they could further express their victory in Vermont. Until lesbians get a “Hubby Hubby” equivalent, though, we will still be a long ways away from homosexual equality in the Ice Cream Industry.
