This week, an Australian tea company launched a line of gay-themed teas to benefit LGBT health charities. But with names like Fag Hag and Bitch Please, some of us are wondering whether this hurts the cause more than it helps. It’s great to help charities, and especially health charities. But do they really need to reinforce stereotypes about gay men to do it?
What do you think? Are stereotypically-named teas a good way to raise money for LGBT charities? Did you notice the lack of diversity in the DiversiTea? Where are the lesbian, trans, and bi stereotypes? And what is the best tea out there?
The Afternoon Inqueery (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Queereka community. Look for it to appear Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 3pm ET.
