Wait, pacifists aren't supposed to do that? Oops...
People who only eat fish are pescatarians, not vegatarians
this one made me laugh and as for the fish isn't meat because Christians eat it on lent comment. Really? That is the most bullshit explanation ever. Fish is meat! W.O.W
That's why it's called being a pescatarian. Still funny though
It depends on your reasons for becoming a vegetarian. Some people do it for health reasons, and might still eat fish because fish isn't fatty like other animals.
yeah I always thought saying you're a vegetarian but you still eat fish was a lot like saying you're not a vegetarian
Haha I love this post :D
I'm a vegetarian but I eat fish. A lot of people in my family are anemic, and I have a slightly low iron level, so I need iron from somewhere. That's why I eat fish.
And I consider fish meat, FYI.
im a vegetarian and i dont eat fish, chicken, or anything that once had a face. i still drink milk, eat yogurt and cheese tho! but being a vegetarian means you eat NO MEAT AT ALL. fish had a face; u eat their flesh, its MEAT! :P
I'm a vegetarian too. I don't eat fish, or chicken, or anything that once had a face, just like them ^^. I still have dairy products though.
Lots of my friends that are vegetarians eat fish but not other meat.
Personally, I think it's just a matter of opinion.
Official definition: a person who does not eat or does not believe in eating meat, fish, fowl, or, in some cases, any food derived from animals, as eggs or cheese, but subsists on vegetables, fruits, nuts, grain, etc.
i am pescetarian. personally, i do not view salmon the same way i view pigs -shrug- i don't have time to explain it
Funny, I had this conversation with my friends.
Thank you for this post. I try to tell people this all the time. The definition of vegetarian is a person who does not eat or does not believe in eating meat, fish, fowl, but subsists on vegetables, fruits, nuts, grain, etc. So if you eat fish you aren't a vegetarion! You just don't eat meat. It's like I'm straight but I fuck girls if they're redheads (I'm a girl). No, it doesn't work that way.
no. it's not. because if you were a vegetarian that ate fish, you'd be a pescetarian, not a vegetarian.
I'm a pescatarian only because my parents make me eat fish, otherwise I'd be a full vegetarian.
my dad makes me eat fish...
IT'S CALLED BEING A PESCATARIAN, SMART ONE. And eating fish isn't like punching kids in the face. That's just illegal.
Fish really isn't meat though because it isn't considered flesh nor does it bleed.
Also fish don't really have feelingss because most don't have a brain just nerves like goldfish only have a memory of 3 seconds cause the don't really have a brain...except sharks
Are you saying eating fish is as enjoyable as punching a whiney little kid in the face?
You need to get your priorities straight.
Fish isn't technically meat. Christians aren't supposed to eat meat on Fridays during lent but they eat fish. Therefore fish isn't meat.
It's still an animal. So it doesn't make much of a difference if it's 'meat' or not. It's the flesh on an animal.
im a christian, ive never heard that
(Anonymous):A religion can't define what is meat or not.
I'm pretty sure Catholics are Christians... the religion didn't define meat, it's just what the culture of the time had decided meat was.
Catholics didn't stop eating meat on Fridays because of vegetarianism, it was to overcome, or lesson, the sin of gluttony. Apparently fish isn't tasty or addicting enough to make one gluttonous, either that, or they decided people needed some form of protein, and fish seemed like the least gluttonous alternative.
I have, Catholics aren't supposed to eat "meat" on Fridays, so they substitute it with fish.
christian and catholic are 2 different things, just the same idea.. sometimes
Vegetarians =/= pacifists
Animals don't have feelings.
Of course they have feelings o_o
