Beekeepers are so fucking ridiculous omg
You claim to love your bees like we love our cats and dogs but like…I don’t need to profit from having cats??????? If I could sell their fur or something for a bunch of money I still wouldn’t do it because like, that’s not how loving someone works???? Having companion animals means there’s cost involved, ALWAYS. If you can’t handle the cost without exploiting them, then you’re not a responsible caretaker and you should find them a new home with someone who isn’t going to treat them like a little ATM. Just like people keep chickens and cows and goats without taking their eggs and milk, you too can keep bees without stealing their honey, which they work very hard to make FOR THEMSELVES. Trying to find some “ethical” way of taking honey is just gross creepy dominionism, and you’re never going to get a stamp of approval from me or any other vegans so for god’s sake quit trying. I’m sick of getting messages in my inbox from “ethical” beekeepers. You all suck, quit saying you “love” your bees. What you love is making money off them.
