When a person states, "I don't eat meat." What exactly are they saying? "I don't eat RED meat? I don't eat ANY meat. I eat fish only? I don't eat shell fish? I eat only fowl? Or do they real mean, I do not eat any flesh of any kind.
After 25 years of no red meat, or pork. 15 years of no chicken or fowl. And the past 5 years without fish or dairy. I only know claim to be a vegetarian. Although people have "labeled me" as a Vegetarian for the past 25 years, what gives?
I have always found it disrespectful to the true vegetarians who practice the lifestyle. But now I wonder if I am just being anal about it?
