I do not think it means what you think it means

Since when did they change the definition of vegetarian? Mark Oppenheimer calls himself a near-vegetarian.

I don't think I'll ever be a total vegetarian. I'll always need occasional doses of sushi and lox; there will always be an aquatic monkey on my backbut my flesh consumption is down to a bare fraction of what it once was.
Then there's the people who try to stretch the definition of meat and meat products.
Kyla Stigdon is 15 years old and is home schooled. The Carroll County resident enjoys acting and traveling. She decided to stop eating meat when she was 12.

"I don’t like the way meat tastes," she said.

Kyla does not find it difficult to be a vegetarian, even in a meat-loving culture.

"I can always order a salad at a restaurant, and you buy what you want to eat for at home," she said.

Kyla eats fish, dairy and eggs.

Then there's this oldie but goodie.
Meat-eating vegetarians transform the movement

Even after five years, Christy Pugh has no trouble sticking to her vegetarian regimen.

The secret to her success? Eating meat.

Apparently they are trying to add to the lexicon by calling it flexitarian. Those are people who like to call themselves vegetarians, but still eat meat. (Flexitarian sounds better than liar, I guess.) Gee, I can't wait until I meet my first 'flexitarian metrosexual'.

As a former vegetarian, and the mother of two vegetarians, I can tell you that we've heard of pescatarian= eats fish as well as herbivorous foods. I think I also heard of one that's only no beef and pork, but I can't recall it.

And we've heard "We're vegetarian except we eat fish and..."

Almost makes me ashamed at being home schooled. You'd think basic biology would be taught.

While we're at it, let us remember that "organic" means anything that derives from a lifeform. Therefore, it is redundant to say something like "organic carrots".

VEGETARIAN Indian term for lousie hunter

I'm an indirect vegetarian. Other than fish the only animals I eat are vegetarians.

Something else to think about--If vegetarians eat vegetables--what do humanitarians eat?
