have you not been reading any of the discussion at all? its not like the bees are being forced to do this- they make honey of their own accord, as food. beekeepers do not starve their bees because a starved bee does not generate honey, which in turn is their income. beekeepers also provide bees a sheltered place to live that is protected from predators and can isolate and quarantine disease before it spreads to the rest of the hive
boycotting honey will only starve out small local and family apiarists, in turn forcing them to shut down and eliminating that safe haven for bees. you all dont seem to understand the concept that bees creating honey on biological and instinctual prompts is entirely different from humans slaving away in cane sugar fields for (extremely meager) pay.
bees do not understand conceptually the idea of their work being “stolen”; they work to create food to survive. literally every apiarist gives them enough honey and other food to survive because a dead bee doesnt make honey. you know who are intelligent enough to conceptualize their own work being abused? humans, often migrant workers, who are paid pennies a day to work in deplorable conditions harvesting sugar. also, the processing of sugar quite often uses bone char (literally burned bones of larger animals), so its not exactly like thats vegan either
there is 0 reason to boycott honey, unless youre talking large corporation “”honey”” (think bear shaped bottle) thats often more corn syrup than honey anyway because regulatory laws are quite lax
FURTHERMORE: consider the fact that you are literally arguing that the “”“suffering”“” of bees is of greater moral import than that of other humans
