vegetarianism is an alternative away of life that don't allows people to eat meet and fish. Some people follows it by ethical reasons, others follows it for health reasons. Do'nt forget that with a vegetarian diet you consume proteins that are mostly in meet and fish but you don't consume the fat that eat and fish normally have. and following vegetarianism you are avoiding killing animals.

Someone who does not eat meat. This includes fish and poultry, although some people claim to be 'modified vegetarians' and will eat these. Not to be confused with a vegan, who is someone who, in addition to meat, avoids milk, eggs, and the like.
'My vegetarian friend likes chocolate milk, but my vegan friend will only drink soymilk.'

An umbrella term for the meatless community without specifying the type of vegetarian. Covers all forms of vegetarianism: pescatarian, lacto-vegetarian, vegan, etc.
The vegetarian+ community forgoes meat consumption as an everyday resistance to the status quo.

Not sure if she's vegan, but she's vegetarian+ for sure. Big environmentalist vibes.

A person who does not eat meat, including birds and fish. Many times vegetarians believe that killing animals today for food is immoral and unnecessary because we are able to survive off of other foods. A person who doesn't eat any meat except for fish is a pescatarian. A person who doesn't eat any meat or other animal products such as eggs, milk, and cheese is a vegan.
There are meat eaters, pescatarians, vegetarians, vegans, and raw foodists (which becomes obsessive compulsive in my opinion).

A bad hunter. Someone who survives by consuming not food, but the stuff that food eats.
The vegetarian was forced to subsist on slower prey, such as the broccoli and carrot.

Techinically a person who eats no meat or dead animal products. Some choose so for ethical reasons while others may simply be grossed out by the prospect of eating flesh. Despite claims to the contrary, most vegetarians are not elitist or prejudiced. Another false argument also includes that eating only plant matter kills more rodents, etc which it doesn't. In order to eat beef for instance, it takes far more energy and resources to grow food for them (as opposed to eating it directly) and then killing the cows on top of it. There've been many proposals for third world countries to focus on farming as opposed to ranching because, if done properly, it takes far less resources and land space. Another common argument is that it "destroys your body" which is blatantly false. It's actually very easy to get sufficient amounts of protein as well as other nutritional necesseties. While in the past it may have been necessary to eat animals to get by, many argue that it no longer is. Our canines are a "left over" so to speak of our evolution in the past.

Despite all this, and despite that most vegetarians are non-judgmental and aren't affiliated with PETA in anyway, many get a good dose of humor out of bashing them. Presumably because the concept of not eating meat challenges their manhood and they need to defend their metaphorical dick size.
I've been a vegetarian for years, since I was 16. The rest of my family has always eaten meat but I (like most others) don't hold it against them. But you can't convince the morons of that.

*at dinner with a group of people*
Person A: Yeah, I'll have a vegetarian burrito please.

Person B: OH GOD. Oh what, are you a VEGETARIAN? Huh? You think you're too good for us?
