Not everyone is a runner. Not everyone can do hours of yoga. Not everyone wants to lift weights. Not everyone wants abs. Not everyone aspires to be shredded. Not everyone wants to count calories. Not everyone wants to be vegan. Not everyone likes the gym.
You know..I didn’t even read the rest of this before I queued it. My bad.
Anonymous asked: Not to be rude, but I think it's rather silly not to eat honey; even though it's made by bees, it's just a natural, organic sugar. There's no reason to be uptight in veganism to deny yourself one of natures most beautiful sugars (after Stevia). Plus the bees are not even hurt during the process and I would even say bee-keeping is prosperous for the bee population (if you're going the pro-animal life stuff).
it’s not being ‘uptight in veganism’ it’s being consistent with my beliefs. honey may be ‘one of nature’s most beautiful sugars’, but it was created by bees for bees.
Even though pollen is the honeybee’s primary source of nutrition, honey is their sole food source during cold weather and other times when alternatives are not available.
- Bee pollen: pollen collected by bees; their primary source of nutrition.
- Royal jelly (bee milk): the pharyngeal gland secretions of the nurse bees. The queen larvae receives more of the royal jelly than the worker larvae, growing her into a queen bee.
- Beeswax: secreted by bees to help build their hives.
- Propolis: a brownish resinous material of waxy consistency collected by bees from the buds of trees and used as a cement and an antiseptic.
Cruelty in the Honey Industry
Common practices in the honey industry are:
To prevent the queen bee from leaving the hive, honey producers sometimes cut off her wings.
Often, queen bees are artificially inseminated.
Large commercial operations sometimes take all the honey instead of leaving enough for the bees to get through the winter. The honey is than replaced with a cheap sugar substitute.
Most beekeepers remove all the spring-season honey.
In colder areas, some bee keepers will burn the beehives, killing all the bees inside, before the winter starts to reduce cost.
Bees are often killed or harmed by haphazard handling.
Bees are hardworking animals who deserve to keep the labor of their work. Stealing products from them is a form of exploitation, which should and can be easily avoided. Honey can be replaced by agave syrup, rice syrup, barley malt, maple syrup, molasses, sorghum or fruit concentrates.

STOP SAYING A VAGINA IS LOOSE BECAUSE OF A LOT OF SEX.
VAGINAS ALWAYS SHRINK TO THEIR USUAL TIGHTNESS AFTER SEX.
PENISES DO NOT STRETCH THEM OUT OF SHAPE AT ALL
THE VAGINA IS A REALLY STRONG MUSCLE NOT A FLABBY PIECE OF SKIN
WHEN A DUDE BRAGS ABOUT HOW TIGHT A VAGINA WAS
HE’S LITERALLY BRAGGING ABOUT HOW HE COULDN’T GET HIS PARTNER AROUSED.
WOW 4 FOR YOU, BOY.
