Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.
STOP. STOP NOW.
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?
Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.
I swear people don’t even think this stuff out.
Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive.
Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?
I think a few ppl took Bee Movie too seriously.
Can a knowledgable vegan tackle this post please? I can’t imagine this is logical.
Yes, I can and I have several issues with that.
Wild bees exist. Many different races, on top of that. Bees do not fucking need human support to live.
The whole “without us bees will die” argument is wrong, because bees literally die because of us spraying pesticides on plants while bees are out pollinating
and because humans feed them substitutes instead of letting them
nurture their young with honey. (that’s 2 links)
Watch the more than honey documentary and shut the goddamn hell up forever.
this needs to be reblogged thousands of times with that takedown because I’m god damn tired of seeing thousands of notes on these misguided anti vegan posts when what matters here are the bees, not how humans are their saviors
