an amazing person who has the self control to not eat meat, which is viciously slaughtered in filthy surroundings. a vegetarian is someone who believes animals have the right to live and do not deserve to be exploited for their meat. meat eaters are terribly selfish, simple minded people who do not know what goes in in slaughterhouses. there are laws that allow slaughterhouse animals certain rights, and slaughterhouses often overlook these laws until they are caught. the sadistic and disturbed workers take their frustrations out on the animals in absolutely malicious ways.

oh and for the guy that commented about how plants are living organisms so being vegetarian is pointless... YOU need to read a biology book. vegetarians do not eat ANIMALS, no one ever said anything about organisms... plants may be organisms but they DO NOT feel pain, and they are not animals in any form, they feed through photosynthesis, divide their cells by mitosis (not meiosis as animals do), and THEY ARE COMPOSED OF COMPLETELY DIFFERENT KIND OF CELLS THAN ANIMALS. (plant cells have a large central vacuole, cell wall, and chloroplasts.)


here is just ONE disgusting company that abuses animals... KFC!!!!
"Employees of Kentucky Fried Chicken, one of the biggest fast-food chains of poultry, were caught in July 2004, torturing their chickens for fun. Workers were videoed stomping on chickens, kicking them, and slamming them violently against floors and walls. Workers also ripped the animals' beaks, twisted their heads off, spray-painted their faces, and squeezed the chickens' bodies until they would die."

An old Indian word that means "Fool who cant fish, hunt, or work". Synonyms include "vegan", "liberal", and "hippie".
Vegetarian: "Hey, why do you need to own a gun? Animals have rights you know. Go to the store and buy meat that wasn't harmed or become a vegan or vegetarian instead."

Me: "Well its cheaper to buy bullets and kill a few deer than it is to buy ground beef at Giant."

Vegetarian: "Savage!"

Me: "Get a Job."

Someone who doesn’t eat meat products. Vegans don’t eat any animal products

One issue is vitamin B-12 deficiency, which is a necessary nutrient found only in animal foods. Vitamin B-12 pills are poorly absorbed. No 100% vegetarian population exists, except for India which eats lots of dairy.

Protein is okay in vegetarian diets, but Zinc is low. The recommended dietary allowance for Zinc is 11 mg daily, but due to anti-nutrients in seeds, the vegetarian requirement is 15 mg. Vegetarians usually do not consume enough zinc.

But it has health benefits over the standard diet because we eat less fruits and vegetables. Anthropological/nutritional evidence shows that we should eat mostly plants with some animal products. Our hominid species evolved to eat red meats, but only during successful hunts and probably not daily.

Vegetarians choose this diet to avoid causing pain to animals. However, the U.S. Humane Slaughter Act requires animals to be painlessly knocked unconscious before slaughter. Rubbing the belly of a crab knocks it unconscious before cooking. Oysters arguably feel no pain. Fish poisons such as Jamaican Dogwood are non-toxic to humans but painlessly sedate and kill fish.

Vegetarians also believe that it takes more energy to grow meat than to grow plants, but this isn’t true for grass fed meat. Fish farming can be more sustainable than extra plants for vegetarians if managed to avoid overfishing. Oyster farms are good for ecosystems.
I choose to be a vegetarian because it's morally, nutritionally, and environmentally superior to a meat-based diet.

People who don't eat meat or fish. To be clear : there is no such thing as a vegetarian who eats fish. That's a pescitarian.
Many vegetarians have to put up with idiots telling them that they are any and all of the following : fanatics, insane, fascist, obsessive, selfish, assholes, bullshitters...It's pathetic. If I told you that I didn't eat spinach (I don't - yeucch, spinach), would you feel compelled to sermonize on the 'fact' that I worship the People for the Ethical Treatment of Spinach society, try to force others to give up spinach, and am self-absorbed in my decision to avoid spinach? I don't think so.
People who choose to eat meat, do. Nobody stops them. Are they scared that the big bad vegetarians will come and take their steak away? And then they'll waste away to nothing because they’ve no protein? The average person in the western world consumes around 4 times the amount of protein needed, and some substitutes like soy and Quorn actually contain more protein than meat, not to mention virtually no fat.
A vegetarian is someone who has made an informed life choice not to facilitate the slaughter of innocent animals. A meat-eater is someone who, sometimes for good reasons, but sadly sometimes through ignorance and selfishness, has chosen to prioritise their own preference for meat over the suffering of the 11,000 sapient innocents that an average person eats in a lifetime. If one group should be angry with the other, then in my view, it shouldn't be the second.
I am a 15 year old girl living in the UK and have been vegetarian since I was nine. I have a few friends who are vegetarians, also, though most of them have only recently decided to give up meat.

I have not once regretted my decision and though my parents and two brothers eat meat they are (mostly) understanding of my decision. I am perfectly healthy and enjoy food just as much as I ever did. The only thing I don't enjoy is needlessly-angry-at-the-world imbeciles choosing to criticise a personal, ethical decision which does not affect them in any way whatsoever.

Someone who doesn't eat meat. Meat can be taken out of context when defining this word.
Guy: Hey, can I have a blowjob? We've been going out for a month

Girl: Sorry, I'm a vegetarian, I don't eat meat.
