In modern usage, the term Lotus Eater is used as a pejorative.

It refers to self absorbed, psuedo-intellectual dope smokers who are prone to grandiose ideas, but insulated from the real-world consequences. Lotus Eaters think that their skewed subjective reality is analogous to all other peoples in all other circumstances - even disparate cultures on the other side of the world.
"The GI on the ground in Iraq can't really relate to the lotus eaters back home."

"The lyrics of Michael Franti heavily resonate in the drug-addled mind of the lotus-eater."

A man or woman whose attraction and sexual proclivities are directed exclusively toward partners of Asian lineage. An attraction that borders on obsession or addiction to the point where they are under a spell or seemed drugged.
Bro...look at that Lotus Eater posting up on all the Asian girls at this party...he is oblivious to all the other talent here. Odysseus needs to call him back to the boat to give the rest of us a chance.

As in Homers The Odyssey were lotus eaters because they ate or used nothing that came from animals like modern vegans as well as going silly on lotus fruit.
