BIG LEAGUE CHEW MAKES WAVES WITH FIRST FEMALE BALLPLAYER ON THE COVER
Ok, here’s a disclaimer. I loved Big League Chew when I was a kid. Straight up sugar and it was amazing. Great bubbles, too! I’ve moved on from chewing bubble gum, mostly. But I’m happy to see the brand make some waves with their first ever female package cover. Make that, first female ballplayer on the cover! But misogynists being everywhere these days, they weren’t too happy with the choice. Who knew there was such an easy gender barrier to break with Big League Chew’s move here? Well, there are surely others. But this proves that nothing is too little sacred for men to freak out about when it comes to doing so. Social media is full of these idiots attacking the gum in a rage.
MISOGYNISTS FREAK OUT OVER ANOTHER BROKEN GENDER BARRIER
But who cares what they think? Certainly not the kids who love Big League Chew. But certainly not any young girls who are gonna be all too happy having a woman on the cover. Why, they just might buy a pack just because. But come to think of it, lots of kids might make that buy. Most of the younger generation are much more welcome to equality of the sexes. So Big League Chew (BLC) made a great move here. But it’s hard not to also think of Nike and Colin Kaepernick. Nike took some heat when they proudly announced their endorsement with a grand commercial featuring the banned NFL quarterback. Idiots across the country posted videos of them burning and destroying their Nike goods.
KIDS THESE DAYS MORE ACCEPTING, WILL BUY MORE BIG LEAGUE CHEW, AND ME TOO!
So good luck burning gum! And as for boycotting the bubblegum, bring it on. Patriarchal adult males are not the people who buy and chew BLC. So bring on the hate! More kids may just want to have brand association with an equality company. As for me, I just might go looking for some of this sugary heart attack goodness myself. Maybe I can at last fit the entire pack in my mouth at once! But will I still be able to blow bubbles? I just might have to wait until the sugar crash ends and I wake from my patriarchal coma. And now, for the rest of the nation. Let’s keep making waves.
