|Just got my latest issue of TIME Magazine - there is mention in the various cover articles that Vegans will not eat honey because the production process oppresses the worker bees.....can someone with more knowledge of this stance please explain to me how a worker bee can be oppressed ? Thanks.|

|they are oppressed because we evil humans are stealing their honey, thus exploiting them. They are doing our bidding and we are taking the fruits of their labour without compensating them...|
at least, that's how I understand it.
(yes, this kind of is a troll, I s'pose, but dangit, it's really what I get from the situation. So it's a statement of opinion that resembles a troll. And yes, I have no knowledge of the stance of the vegans, thus, my post was completely pointless, really...).

|Vegans won't eat any food that comes from an animal, right? So, that would obviously rule out honey.|

|Vegans are a little goofy. I agree with most of what they have to say until you take it to extreme levels like that. Hell, I'd probably be a vegitarian myself if I had any kind of willpower. ("But bacon tastes GOOD. But pork chops taste GOOD.")|
I don't know, though. I had a good friend in high school who was a really hardcore vegan, and even she never mentioned the honey thing...

|I used to process website orders for a cosmetics company that was "animal friendly". That means that they dont personally test any of their products on animals, but they do contain ingredients that were tested on animals decades ago.|
So because of our "Animal Friendly" status, I would get a lot of calls from Vegans asking if we used real animal hair in our brushes (no), or honey in the lipstick (yes, almost all lipstick contains honey). Actually, between you and me, cosmetic products contain a lot of nasty-sounding animal parts/products you wouldnt believe. But you didnt hear that from me.
Anywho, I said all that to say this:
I even had a few people who would call me looking for places to buy our make-up from that didnt also sell furs BECAUSE THEY REFUSED TO SUPPORT ANY ESTABLISHMENT THAT ALSO SOLD *ANYTHING* ANIMAL-RELATED.
You heard me.

|There are some who take this to the extreme (mostly in India) who wear masks to avoid breathing bugs or microorganisms, and sweep the ground in front of them to avoid stepping on worms or insects. Also, they will only eat fruit that has already fallen from a tree, and refuse to eat anything that had to die to become food.
Of course, that's for religion, and I can understand that. Every vegan I know is a hippie trying to feel morally superior. It's fun to put meat in their food when they aren't looking! They get SOOOOO pissed when you tell them!
