Why am I so bothered by those using/promoting honey and other assorted bee ‘products’ as “vegan”? Please take a look at this image & consider the following:
- Bees are sentient beings who work tirelessly to gather food & supplies for their colonies.
- Bees already do plenty of service for us by helping to pollinate trees and plants so that we may reap the benefits in the form of fruit and vegetable nutrients when time comes for harvest. If it weren’t for bees, we would find little (or nothing) to eat on this planet.
- The population of bees is also now on the very precipice of massive extinction. Exploitation ≠ conservation.
Stealing bees’ food & killing them for thoughtless, self-indulgent purposes is not okay. Fellow Earthlings neither share nor benefit from popular human systems of (monetary) trade, which leads to mass suffering and unimaginable confusion for non-humans. Please consider these beings and their perspectives before making decisions which can only perpetuate their exploitation.
My friend killing himself changed something in me and I just can’t fucking figure it out yet.
All those times I thought to myself “If shit got bad I could just kill myself” and all those times I tried or wanted to. He and I were so much alike that I wonder when I’ll reach the day I take my own life. I have thought about it so many times and whenever I’m down thats the place I fall. Suicidal.
I tried to kill myself one night when I was really drunk. I had a lot going on in my life at the time, I was pretty confused, I was pretty fucked up. I was super drunk and I ate a bottle of pills. Tiny pills ate at least a hundred of them cute little pale pink things.
I realize I’m not a very vocal person about my experiences or feelings with any of my friends or my blog. I wish I could be more kind and understanding with myself… I’ve lost my train of thought.
I dont live a fully vegan lifestyle. I work a job where I serve dairy, eggs, and meat.
There I said it
This is a cage-free egg farm. This supplier would be allowed to also call this farm “humanely raised” and depending on the feed, call it organic. Does it look humane to you? Does it look like they have any more space than a battery cage? They’re still debeaked. Still de-toed. The males are still ground up alive! And they’re still slaughtered. So what could possibly make this “humane”? That’s right, nothing.
