Australians Can't Order Two Scoops Of The Same Ice Cream Until They Have Marriage Equality


Marriage equality has been a hot political talking point for years, often being used by politicians to leverage a religious group of single-issue voters against their political rivals and further dividing their constituents which makes coming to an agreement on nearly any topic a near-impossible feat.

Despite overwhelming support among the public, Australia seriously lags behind when it comes to marriage equality. So much so that Ben & Jerry's, a longtime supporter of LGBT rights, has decided to take a drastic step to highlight the situation.  

To get the point across before the next parliamentary sitting on the issue on June 13, Ben & Jerry's has decided to ban Australians from buying two scoops of the same flavor at its Scoop Shops across the country.
