This was perfect
#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.
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
Strength lies in knowing oneself; those who do not know themselves are lost and open to the manipulations of others.
A willingness to learn is a sign of strength.
Endure. In enduring, grow strong.
Learn to see the whole, or be blinded to the truth.
Many in unison can accomplish more than many alone.
Seek balance, or lose sight of your goal.
Patience is a virtue.
Focus and discipline are the key to strength; diversion is the key to weakness.
I usually don’t reblog this kinda stuff but I guess my followers need some problematic lesbian gazing today.
I am reblogging this because I have met so many girls afraid to work out in case they got “too muscular” even though htey actually wanted to work out
Men are so godfucking afraid of strong women that they created this myth that if you lift a dumbbell two and a half times you’ll suddenly turn into the Hulk. I’ve been lifting HEAVY 3x a week for months and I still look like a skinny little twig.
I wish building muscle was as easy as they make it sound like. =p
… Drooling …
I AM VERY CONFLICTED RIGHT NOW AND THAT’S OKAY
