honey do

apparently bein vegan means im not supposed to eat honey. umm. WTF? honey? what is THAT crap about? oh, it comes from a non-plant? well that’s like telling me that it would be harmful to eat the hair your stupid cat sheds. it WOULDN’T! that cat doesn’t want the hair and according to that Modern Marvel episode i saw, bees don’t want their honey. im not milking bees and injuring them for their stupid honey.

and the thing is — i don’t even eat THAT much honey. but you know what people? i gave up eggs. and cheese. and milk. and butter. and milk chocolate. and — although some of you might not think this counts — I HAVE given up meat for the past SIX years! so NO! im NOT going to give up honey. and if i want some in my stupid organic tea, well im going to have it.

stupid worker bees. making me seem like a lazy vegan. that is SO like them.

    I’m guessing the giving up honey comes from the fact it is farmed, and millions of bees die in the process every year?

    really? crap. i guess the question is, how much do i care about a bee dying then? I’ll have to think about this more.

    if we only care about the cute animals we think should be saved, that doesn’t say much for us as vegans.

    that’s not the point. the question is whether bees are technically animals or insects. I’m not going to lie to you people. i’d kill 7,000 mosquitoes if i could.

    Bees are insects, which are indeed part of Animalia and therefore animals. Sorry, they are both. Try Blue Agave. Its easily as sweet as honey, easier for the body to metabolize and therefore better for you. Should be able to get it in most grocery stores in the organic section.

    Honey bees are also used by vegetable farmers to pollenize many of the plants we eat. Not to say that those who don’t eat honey should give up, I’m just stating that ‘bee exploitation’ will take place in unexpected forms.

    I am not going to say whether eating Honey is ethical or not, I don’t eat it just out of habit of being vegan for so long. I question this a lot though because I’m more interested in the health benefits of a vegan diet, and it doesn’t make a lot of sense to avoid a nutritional loaf of bread due to some added honey in favor of a significantly inferior loaf which uses “organic cane sugar” in its place.
