imo vegetarians shouldn't even be considered vegetarians
eggs are not vegetables, nor is milk or cheese.
imo veganism should be called vegetarianism and vegitarians should be called omnivores since that is indeed what they are especially if they eat fish flesh, dairy and eggs.
but it's not really about what you call yourself.
why are you a vegetarian? to be in a club? The nature of your question would lead me to believe that's why you want to be one.
if you're a vegetarian for health reasons it seems you can claim that title and eat whatever you want.
if you're a vegetarian for ethical reasons you have to ask yourself if you only care about not eating animals that are cute.
Then you have to ask yourself if it's ok to eat animals that are tortured or if it's only ok to eat the things an animal creates while it's tortured (milk and eggs).
