The title says it all, first I questioned the sexuality of my house key as it looked a bit prideful. Then we were illuminated with the different shades of gay and a pretty lame diety as Steve Jobs is generally a poo-poo faced kind of guy. Its his computers that we found were slightly in the closet, although that has to do with their operating system.
Yesterday, September 1st 2009, Ben and Jerry’s the Vermont ice cream company we have come to love released a temporary flavor, Hubby Hubby. As you might have guessed it is a localized renaming of their product Chubby Hubby which includes: fudge covered peanut butter filled pretzels in vanilla malt ice cream rippled with fudge and peanut butter, according to the Washington Post. However Ben and Jerry’s describes it as: an all naturally fabulous union of Peanut Butter Cookie Dough ice cream, fudge and pretzels.
The thing that pisses me off is the fact that it is only available in Vermont. Would it not be a better idea to celebrate living in a country where its okay to be out with a national release? I am advocating for changes in marriage laws but I would urge the country to limit the state’s involvement of the process. After all other that tax revenue and legal fees what business does the state really have in my personal life. After all it took three times to be married to the love of my life.
So, go support the reformation of marriage laws, just on a different platform, getting the state out of the private lives of it’s citizenship.
