Anyone could eat vegetarian food if they wanted. I haven't had meat in years so to me now going vegetarian seems like a really easy thing to do (although I know that's not true for everyone.) It's tough visiting my family and seeing them all eating a giant turkey and such, but our dietary choices are personal. I talk about veganism every once in awhile but ultimately I know I cannot force any of my friends and family to go vegetarian or especially vegan. They wouldn't stick with it unless it was a decision they made on their own. The best thing to do is be "the vegetarian" for your friends and family. I think just knowing someone who is vegetarian or vegan can be really powerful in spreading the message and showing them how easy it is. When I first went vegan I was really angry for quite awhile that I had been fooled for so long into thinking that dairy and eggs wasn't harmful towards animals. I wanted to go up to anyone I saw eating a burger or a milkshake and smack it out of their hands. But again, by not eating meat yourself you are making a difference and that's something to focus on. Perhaps share some of your food with loved ones and it may inspire them to eat more vegetarian meals.

I'm curious as to why you keep starting new thread after new thread. If you have a lot of questions about be a vegetarian, perhaps you could post a "Liquinn's Questions" thread where we could all dialogue with you about your new journey.

As for the question above, my answer is "no". I actually prefer it when meat-eaters eat vegetarian food.

Would someone who eats meat once a month be classed as a meat eater or a vegetarian?

I guess just because someone eats vegetarian food - doesn't make them vegetarian.

Liquinn- vegetarian means you DON"T eat animal flesh. You don't ever intent to eat animal flesh. Meat is not on your list of "things that you call food"
If it's eaten accidently, like you got the wrong fried rice or something, and started before you knew, or even picked out for some people, you would still be vegetarian.

It is being rather curious why you ask the same questions in new threads. If you want to be vegetarian you don't eat meat, not today, not tomorrow, not in the future

Why do you keep asking us what YOU should do?
Why would SOMEONE ELSE determine what you eat?
What do YOU want for yourself?
What are your ethics?

If you want to be vegetarian be vegetarian

No.

Tell your dad way ahead of time so it won't be an issue.

If a vegetarian eats meat completely by accident - and it happens - that's the only exception allowed the Rules of Vegetarianism.

Yes, it could give that impression. However it's always best to clearly tell your family and friends you don't eat meat so that they know to never serve it to you.

Yes, the problem is you won't say no and stick to your values. You've made so many posts and threads asking about when it counts, but you absolutely cannot call yourself vegetarian unless you do not eat meat and do not ever plan on eating meat again. It's that simple. Don't be worried about offending your dad, it's just food. Tell him no thank you, you do not eat meat, and then you will have no problem. If you do not let your dad know you are not going to eat meat he prepares, then you cannot blame this on him.

So I have NO plans to touch fish again... I just need to do the same with meat. It's "different" when someone forces you to eat it. Though :/

that applies to this Christmas. If you want to be vegetarian you let people know so they have no reason to feel offended. They know you don't want meat, and to expect you to change for them would be offensive to you

How is it not fair? veg'ns don't eat meat because of ethics or health. There's nothing wrong with eating veg to avoid

When you commit to be vegetarian. when you take meat out of your food choice. Do you eat insects? Kinda like that (assuming you don't eat insects

I'd rather know why you don't object to eating it elsewhere.
You don't sound very committed to becoming vegetarian

I don't like the idea of cooking or buying meat... (which my dad does). But why do I not object if it's not at my place? I wouldn't order any meat in KFC or McDonalds, either.
I haven't cooked any meat in my place since I've had it.

Well the idea of being vegetarian is to not eat meat.
Vegetarians DO NOT eat meat. At all
If you say you're not going to eat except... you're not a vegetarian, just an omnivore who eats veg a lot
