I'm looking for opinions on a little disagreement my fiancee and I had this weekend (Easter). This wasn't a big deal, just something we talked about for a min or two then let it go ... I'm not even planning on bringing up the comments made here to her, I'm just curious. So I have a pretty observant vegetarian diet (animals don't die for me to eat). I eat eggs and dairy products. I substitute all the morningstar and boca products for normal meat stuff, or I just cook tofu. This is the case 363.25 days of the year. Two times each year, (Thanksgiving and Easter), Debra and I holiday with my family, who are all meat eaters (we do Christmas with Debra's family). Those two days of the year, I eat what everybody else is eating (turkey), mainly because they don't go out of their way to make filling vegetarian options for the family meals. Debra does not engage in eating meat ever, even those two days, so she's very observant, and usually makes do with just mashed potatoes and broccoli rather than eating everything (the filling, gravy, and turkey which all are prepared with the turkey). Now here's the thing that I found amusing. Debra remarked to me yesterday that I wasn't a vegetarian, yet she thinks her best friend from college IS a vegetarian ... I consider her a "pescetarian" or possibly, not even that because she eats seafood ALL the time, literally every time I've ever been at her place, she has been cooking fish/shrimp/squid/octopus/lobster/escargot/crab/etc... Not that I really care about labels but I am kinda curious to get some opinions of what others think about this distinction she made that I couldn't really wrap my head around. To me, it's pretty simple: either I'm not a vegetarian because I eat meat twice a year (which is a fair call), therefore her friend isn't either!, or if you think that her friend Seymone IS a vegetarian, I'm not sure how you could argue that I am not but she is ... octopus and squid are super intelligent animals that she eats ALL the time, arguably more intelligent than the two turkeys that are killed on behalf of my family that I engage in consuming. thoughts?
