Anonymous said: Wait hold up a sec- bee farming is really, really important! Why would you boycott honey? I understand not liking placing bees in unnatural places just to pollinate things, but setting up hives and being a beekeeper is very important to keeping the bee population growing while they are going extinct. If we didn't have bees, the world would die off in a short matter of about four years :(
This is absolutely NOT true and it’s something that people will use as a scare tactic. The only truth is that the world would die off without bees.
But to keep our bee population flourishing, factory farming is completely backwards where they kill the queens when they feel like it, keep them in such revolting conditions that they die off at the rate of knots, being so violently transported that they die from the pain and shock, sitting in the post office freezing to death, being electrocuted and gassed on a regular basis, being controlled and manipulated to suit the needs of humans, NOT the bees themselves. It’s amazing that they even live the 3 unnatural years that they do because they’re so disgustingly overworked.
