Another brand name under attack
A Melbourne man, known as Brian Mc, is petitioning to have "Golden Gaytime" re-named with concerns that the name is ‘offensive’ and ‘outdated’ to Australia’s LGBTQ+ community.
In the petition, Brian states “Gay’s meaning primarily is related to sexuality. As a Gay man I have needed to fight to be myself, overcoming many things in my life, I am a proud Gay man.”
“As a part of the LGBTQIA+ community, I believe my sexual identity is owned by me, not a brand and that the outdated meaning no longer applies. Isn’t it time for this double entendre to end?”
When I was a child I was always given the choice between a Splice and a Golden Gaytime. I would always choose the GG while my brother had the Splice. Now I am gay and he is not. I guess I was indoctrinated. Well played Streets, you made me gay. Dangerous times. pic.twitter.com/KPmdxlFgo6— Jack James (@crowsest91jjm) March 24, 2021
Within the last 12 months, Redskins became Red Ripper, Chicos became Cheekies and Coon Cheese was renamed Cheer Cheese.
Is the number up for Golden Gaytimes too?
FYI In New Zealand, it's known as "Cookie Crumble".
