#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

Remember white vegans don’t care about the history of their raw foods, just that they’re raw and earthy. Nevermind the unethical practices used to get those foods to their nice, air-conditioned Whole Foods.
But oh no, bee puke is food. So unethical.
Like please stop.

Jesus Christ these people are a joke. You don’t feel entitled to a bee’s honey. So you buy another product and now you’re holy. But the underpaid exploited workers in India or Pakistan or China who sew your shirts & shoes, the brown folk who pick your crops, the entire world under the heel of capitalism, you damn sure feel entitled to that. What about the worms who toil in the soil, their life labor is necessary for your veggies. Are you entitled to that? SAVE THE WORMS, EAT A VEGAN!!

The comments on this give me LIFE.

"

Sadomasochism is an institutionalized celebration of dominant/subordinate relationships. And, it prepares us either to accept subordination or to enforce dominance. Even in play, to affirm the exertion of power over powerlessness is exotic, is empowering, is to set the emotional and social stage for the continuation of that relationship, politically, socially, and economically.

Sadomasochism feeds the belief that domination is inevitable and legitimately enjoyable. It can be compared to the phenomenon of worshipping a godhead with two faces, and worshipping only the white part on the full moon and the black part on the dark of the moon, as if totally separate. But you cannot corral any aspect within your life, divorce it’s implications, whether it’s what you eat for breakfast or how you say goodbye. This is what integrity means.

"I mean, aren’t white punks always complaining about “blue hair” discrimination, as if a jar of Manic Panic magically re-positioned their own social status on some level of “equally” marginal footing with people of color? And where does that leave the rest of us who cannot wash our colors away?"

[A series of 7 tweets from bad-dominicana that read, “if i dont fuck w/ x coz they abusive & u do? its ur life. but if ur support of ems dangerous to me? i dont gotta fuck w u either. its my life” 
"for some of us its selfcare, its escaping abuse cycles & reminders of how theyre supported. ‘i dont fuck w/u if u ok w/ x abuser’ is survival" 
"so u make your choice, its your life. your shitty connects may drive some ppl away who are too triggered by your acceptance of it."
"its just life. some ppl gonna be triggered& revictimized when u equate them w/ their abusers. and they gonna leave u over it."
"alliances w/abusive ppl & support of em will always leave in question ur own values& if they align w/ that abuse. ppl have a right to avoid"
"u dont get to be like, i love this wifebeater and his wife the same, and then be mad when wife leaves like ‘u like him? i cant fuck w/ u’"
"yall call abused ppl petty all the time for not forcing themselves to be around unsafe ppl who support their abuser"]

"Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time."

The Pervocracy: Consent culture. (via notemily)

it’s especially important to practice this with KIDS. Kids need to know it’s ok to say no to giving auntie a hug and kiss. it’s ok to say no to getting up on stage at a children’s show or activity. it’s ok to say no. please teach your children this!
