#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.

The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.

Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.

It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

Reblogging for the commentary thank you fuck ugh!!!


Wal-Mart Surveillance Video of John Crawford III Shooting

Now I see why they tried to hide this tape. This was an ambush murder. There is no reasonable way to interpret the tape as anything else.

Bear in mind that Ohio is an open carry state, so even if he had a gun in walmart he wasn’t breaking any laws.

open carry activists in walmart

Finally, just for fun some other open carry activists got stopped in Walmart

Being white, they lived to tell about it.



can we stop pretending that having sex with women is only something that is only “rewarded” to men with the “correct” attitudes towards women? there are plenty of men with shitty attitudes towards women who have plenty of sex - with women. and they even have girlfriend and wives too.

granted, if you are overtly misogynistic, it is not going to help if you are not very attractive in getting laid. but really, a chubby nebbish feminist ally who likes to talk about social justice in video games isn’t what the majority of women are looking for when they’re out to hook up either. 

believe it or not, plenty of women are attracted to “dudebro” jerks. not all women put their political beliefs ahead of their personal lives, and plenty of women might not share your political beliefs at all. but if you’re going to claim to support women, you’re going to have to support their choice in sex partners too, even if it isn’t the partner you would pick. 

That’s… actually a damn fine point. Respecting women’s choices must prevail even when they are not choices you would personally make.
