What are you supposed to do with a lens specifically designed to offer a 75mm equivalent focal length? Shoot a portrait down to the thighs? Do they not realize that there's a reason nobody makes 75mm FF lenses? Do they think "50mm" is some absolute, unimpeachable measurement whose meaning can never change? Would it be so much more difficult to make a 56mm or 60mm lens?

This question and some of the discussion is going way over my head. There must be something important that I am missing!

Your not missing anything it's just that the original poster has a prejudice against 50mm lenses, for some reason...I for one am not prepared to argue with his illogical thinking, so will just ignore him..
