I've been vegetarian since... last August, I think?
^-^ it makes me happy.
No meat, at all. Or seafood, because I consider that meat. >_>
I'll go vegan eventually... I just fucking love cheese too much. lol@chu

Well, I don't eat meat, and I'm lactose intolerant, so I guess that makes me a vegan. :D
I LOVE vegan sausage, and vegan bacon... Mmm.... ZOMGGGG

I love all the smileys on this site.

Oh my shit I would hate to be lactose intolerant. How do you cope? T_T

And, congrats Rita [/smug]

Proper vegetarian, or a pescetarian who claims to be vego?

I've been a veggie for roughly four years now.
It's worried my dad occasionally because I've lost weight from it, but I do feel better, uh, ethically.
In some ways, I can't wait to move out of home so I can go full vegan, but I think I can rest easy knowing that I've got my tofu and lentils while papa decides to throttle me with the occasional chicken pattie. shjfdhnjfvmerrmerrme

My parents hated mine at first, because I went vego when I was anorexic, and they thought it was a ploy to eat less. But now that I'm healthy I'm the same weight as I was before, and I'll probably stay this way until they do something awful lie outlaw vegetarian junk food COLON HORROR!

I've been a vegetarian for about 2 years and 6 months. It wasn't hard to give up meat for me at all. I just don't like the taste, how heavy it is, and how much fat it contains.
Being a vegetarian is healthier choice. The best part is, you can get vegan bacon,beef ect from the grocery store. Which usually contains half the fat and calories that the regular thing would have.

You would categorize me as an Ovolactotarian, meaning I eat eggs and I eat milk products. Reason is because I don't want to take calcium suppliments everyday, next to my Iron tablets and my Vitamin D tablets. And besides, I couldn't live without milk, or yogurt or cheese or...ice cream. -cumslut-

Also, I don't eat fish or any other seafood; Because lets face it: its living, and has nerve endings, has digestive/respiratory/circulatory systems etc, and can move around. If you eat something that has/can do all of those things, you're not a vegetarian.

Shocked But wouldn't that count as just being a regular vegetarian? It's vegans that don't eat animal products.

and, I agree. It's a pet peeve of mine when people claim to be vegetarian but still eat fish/seafood. Because EVERY TIME I tell someone I'm vegetarian, I get 'Oh but do you eat fish?'

No I do not. I don't eat anything that has (had) a brain. That's the gist of vegetarianism. ugh x_x

^ That's true.
It wasn't very hard for me to give up egg products, cos I already hated anything containing them.
The meat though. I dunno, I lived with my mum when I gave it up and at first, I didn't even realise I'd done it. And then when I moved back in with my dad and he tried to give me steak for dinner... I couldn't stomach it. To see the juices dripping and glistening on the plate and to think that the piece of flesh on my plate was something's child and quite possibly mother, I was horrified.
When he does try to feed me chicken I take it into my room with me and give it to my dog.
I wish he just wouldn't make it at all though. It's horrible. naww, diddums.

They are the official names for being vegetarian. It depends on what you eat.
If you eat nothing with animal products, you're a vegan.
If you only eat milk products, you're a lactotarian.
If you only eat egg products, you're an ovotarian.
If you eat both egg and milk, you're a lactoovotarian.

It's just the scientific names I learned in Health. And according to the definition of vegetarian, it means you only consume vegetables and fruits. So basically, vegetarian and vegan mean the same exact thing. That's why I always ensure I clear up exactly what kind of vegetarian I am.

Oh my god COLON HORROR! that's awful. doesn't he support it?

you should at least ask him to buy free range chicken, if he has to buy it at all. they live much longer than most meat chickens and have a really good life.


my dad was against it for a while, but now I've converted him, and very nearly my little sister, too. mum still eats it but I live with my dad so it's all good for now.


And, wow. I had no idea x_x jfc. Ahaha I guess though it probably takes just as long to explain the meaning of that as it does to explain what kind of vegetarian you are, anyway.


It's a resolution of mine to stop drinking/eating products containing cows milk, just because of the standards the cows live in. It'll take a while because I'll need to actually sit down and work out what I can/can't eat and where I can get alternatives from, because my parents won't let me until I'm sure of all that. I don't mind eggs because I only *ever* eat free range eggs and I know how good the conditions for free range chickens are.

No, he's pro-meat.
Lastnight he made a roast and the smell just wafted through the entire house for the good part of three hours.
I just felt sick, the entire time.

The most horrible part is that he doesn't realise how it's affecting me. How it makes me sick to my stomach.

Have you tried to explain it to him?

I mean, surely he can support your choices, even if he chooses to still eat meat. Are you actually 20? because if you are and he's not letting you make those decisions, that's not cool x_x

Tell him, and just refuse to eat it. My parents did the same thing, but got used to the idea of me not eating meat, and had different options for me. He can't forcefully shove food down your throat.

Besides, that means he can buy less food, and save money. That way, hes not wasting anything.

lol@chu Yes, I'm 20.
I don't know. I think it's just what he's been brought up with.

He's very low maintainance my papa, so anything he can chuck on the stove and leave for a good ten minutes, is fine.
Maybe I've not tried to explain it to him enough... hmmmm

I think he just worries about me 'cos I'm the baby and the first child to rebel against the world of carnivorousness.

You can live without meat. Tell him that their are other options, and other ways of getting protein and iron. Besides, its a healthier way living, and it plays a big role in keeping fat consumption and cholesterol down.

I have been vegetarian for nearly three years now ;D
I've been thinking of going vegan for a while now but... I love cheese, a lot.
I might try it when I move out of home because at the moment my mumma is willing to cook me a seperate dinner but I think that going vegan would be asking too much of her.
I can't cook and I'm not really willing to try at the moment so... lol@chu

All my friends at uni think I'm a freak for being vegie... Neutral
Most of them are guys and they were all asking me about it the other day. One of them was like 'How can you not like steak? It's pure meat!' LMFAOOO
I had to explain to him that it being 'pure meat' was the exact reason I didn't like it lol@chu

Lol, I get the same reaction.

It's like '...yes. that's why I don't like it. because it's meat. yknow, that stuff I DON'T EAT?'


Do they try and force you to eat it or taunt you or anything? Most of my friends do. heteronormist teenaged boys don't know how to handle vegetarianism.

They make fun of me a lot, they seem to think it's the weirdest/most funny thing ever... Neutral
I've been called Vegie Head many many times LMFAOOO
But no trying to force me to eat meat thank gosh, my dad does that though.
He threw chicken at me once, he's tried putting meat in my mouth and if he cooks he refuses to make vegie food because he's a dick -narrows eyes-

The boys are just really shocked by it LOL@CHUUU
They really couldn't understand why I'd not want to eat meat, apparently it's like 'the BEST food ever'.
