#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

You all seem to not understand what criticism is.


Hating on someone requires you be envious or jealous or sour about someone’s success, accomplishments, or some other positive/attractive thing about them.

I do not hate on White people. I don’t see any value in wishing I were White. I have absolutely no wish to be like “White people” as a group.

I never understood the whole about “catering to the male gaze” thing. Like men are going to sexualize women whether that was or wasn’t the intention of the female artist.

NBC News cites a new report by the German government’s Ethics Council recommending the decriminalization of sex between adult siblings.

"The majority of the German Ethics Council believes that it is not appropriate for a criminal law to preserve a social taboo,” Dr. Michael Wunder, a psychotherapist and member of the council, told NBC News. “But the ethics council does not recommend decriminalizing sex between parents and children.”

The majority of the 26-member council concluded in the report that “neither the consequences for the family nor the possibility for descendants from such incestuous relationships can justify a ban under criminal law.”

The Week reports that the panel is made up of scientists, doctors and lawyers.

A spokesperson for Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrat government said the German Chancellor was not in favor of reversing the country’s incest ban.

"Eliminating the threat of punishment against incestuous acts within families would run counter to the protection of undisturbed development for children," Elisabeth Winkelmeier-Becker said, according to the Telegraph.

The publication notes that between two and four percent of Germans have had “incestuous experiences,” according to an earlier report by the Max Planck Institute.
