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
also, honey is fucking amazing <33 so good <33

In Bnei Brak, an Israeli city whose population is mostly ultra-orthodox, there is a disturbing phenomenon - advertising signs with images of women on them are being ripped by ultra-orthodox men who believes that women should only be shown dressed modestly enough. The sleeves must cover the elbows, skirts must hide the knees and hair should be hidden as well.
The Israeli advertising agency “Twisted" decided to use that habit, and created a poster that hides another poster under it. 24 hours after the sign was hanged, the picture of the model was ripped and the message was exposed:
International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women
oh that’s brilliant.
Anon hate from the late 1800’s.
What I love most about this is that this person was SO INCENSED at the recipient that they couldn’t even wait the days/weeks it would take for the mail to go through. No, they had to say “FUCK YOU” as soon as fucking possible and, AND, let the recipient that they were not done with the fuck you, nay, this was merely the first volley in what would undoubtably be a dressing down of Biblical proportions.
i will gleefully reblog this every time i see it
Thank you Michael Grant for understanding
Guys can we get this to 1500?
this man summed up everything i’ve been thinking for years
I used to go to a school where the principal purposely made sure we were assigned more homework than normal so that we would be “learning” instead of “on the streets acting like hooligans”. And they wonder why that entire city is known for their drug addicted rich kids.
My cousins are just starting school and its like the saddest thing to watch
Last year when the older girl had just started I visited Yuma for her birthday and so we went out to eat and she laid her head in my lap and stayed like that throughout dinner. like, we’re celebrating this child’s birthday and shes too exhausted to even enjoy it.
For as long as I’d known her she was like princess spider man. she liked dolls, super heroes, she had a toy work table with tools and a toy kitchen
but so after she started school shes all “i don’t like spiderman anymore”
I was crushed the girl has always loved spiderman she has spiderman blankets and a spiderman chair
we got her a stuffed lion and she hated it cuz it wasn’t girly. so I was like “okay cool, I’ll keep it then I love lions, they’re my favorite animal <33” and after a bit she took the doll from me and started carrying it around with her
I don’t care if she likes girly shit - her little sister does and she is just as precious to me - but it’s like “how convenient, you just started school and now everything you liked that wasn’t “girly” you now hate”
I never really believed that school destroys individuality until last year. :/
but yea.. the changes in my cousins are like night and day
I fucking quit
i hate art

“Everyone, thank you.”
“When I wake up in the morning, a pure white curtain of lace is rustling in the breeze. The cuckoo clock in the room says it’s 7 o’clock, and Mom’s voice says, “You’ll be late if you don’t get up!”.”
“I’m still half asleep, and I think, “Please let me sleep for 3 more minutes.” I’m late for school every single day like clockwork, my teacher makes me stand out in the hallway, and I get failing grades on my tests.”
“The crepes we’d eat on the way home. We’d gaze dreamily at a party dress in a show window. The little things bring such joy, and I’m happy.”
“I wish…I wish I could go back to that kind of normal life. I want to go back.”
