This…this is not how beekeeping works.
Why do you think that beekeepers rip of the wings of queen bees as a standard industry practice? Its to force the hive to stay in these artificial enclosures built for the purpose of exploitation. Bees aren’t consenting to this. They also don’t consent to being artificially impregnated, which involves the murder of many males, and is practiced even in cases where your dealing with just a single hive. They certainly are not happy with having their food source (which they spend their whole lives making) stolen from them and replaced with a substitute which actively harms their health.
And like yeah, I’m angry at capitalism, but I’m also angry at beekeepers who think it’s okay to exploit and harm bees for their own personal pleasure/profit. And I’m angry at people like yourself who try to make out as if this exploitation is at all consensual, who perpetuate this “happy exploitation” myth.
~ Bitesizevegan has a great short video on the subject (here)
Jfc this was a meme about INDIVIDUAL beekeeping where 1 beekeeper keeps 1 hive and since its a well known fact bees just up and LEAVE beekeepers who dont keep them comfortable and happy (a problem amateur beekeepers often have) i find it funny that if the beekeeper and bees are both happy a lot of vegans are still angry about the practice
Standard industry practices in commercial beekeeping:
~ Artificial insemination, a process where which male bees are crushed and drained of their semen, which is then forcefully inserted into a queen bee. Links on queen bees and AI, and more links here and here and here and here
~ The use of smoke to purposely disorient and panic bees
~ Taking all or most of the essential honey that bees produce for their hives, and replacing it with a sugar syrup substitute which is thought to contribute to the development of disease in honeybees because it does not provide the proper nutrition and may produce a toxin under heat that kills the honeybees.
I discovered this on my phone and i dont remember the original reason i made it which just makes it all the more funny
Bees obviously dont consent to any of this, commercial beekeeping is exploitation, theres no consensual relationship going on here.
you’re not angry at beekeepers you’re angry at capitalism so stay off my post
filming went INSANELY well today im so goddamn happy with how this is turning out
So this is a weird question, but could you try to explain what being genderfluid feels like? Or what the different genders feel like? I'm trying to figure things out, so anything that could help would be great!
I’m personally not genderfluid, so….
‘He him lesbians are the reason no one takes trans people seriously’ 'neopronouns are the reason no one takes trans people seriously’ ’ nondysphoric trans people are the reason no one takes trans people seriously’
I have something that’s going to BAFFLE you. Transphobia is the reason no one takes trans people seriously and blaming lesbians + other trans people isnt going to make cis people like you, and it isnt going to stop them from being transphobic. Also use people’s pronouns and do so without complaint or I’ll hit you with a chair
bake off in the library, what crimes will it commit
The idea of spontaneously getting on a train and going somewhere far might be romantic in another country but England is too small for that. Pull an Eternal Sunshine and go where? Fucking Slough? Go to fucking Slough and get a fucking boots meal deal?
i only understand about 60% of the words in this post but i still think its funny
I’m actually sick of seeing the word asperger’s. everyone who is classified as having asperger’s syndrome is Just autistic you don’t need another word for it, especially since that word was coined by a fucking eugenicist to describe the autistics he thought were still, like, useful to society
im gonna be codirecting a short film!!!!
