#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
We dismiss the position of passive support and quiet racial justice debates, prevalent within our community, for an unequivocal, active support of initiatives led by Black organizers, and targeted Black youth in particular, to resist police violence.
The party battles giant killer frogs with their crossbow, magic sword, and laser rifle and pistol. (Denis Beauvais, credited as Dennis, from D&D Expert module DA2: Temple of the Frog by Dave Arneson and David Ritchie, TSR, 1986.) The temple part of this adventure is adapted directly from the sample dungeon included in D&D Supplement II: Blackmoor in 1975, the first adventure ever published for an RPG, set in the first campaign world specifically created for a fantasy RPG. Sci fi elements from other worlds were a part of D&D from the very beginning.
