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.
"Imagine heading down to your local Scoop Shop to order your favourite two scoops of Cookie Dough in a waffle cone," a statement on their website reads. "But you find out you are not allowed – Ben & Jerry’s has banned two scoops of the same flavour. You’d be furious!"
