Yeah, like colorful said, I'm an ethical vegitarian so it doesn't matter as much to me. I don't really care about purity, except that I'd imagine any trace or dairy or meat could make me sick, since I haven't eaten them in a long time. I'm also not grossed out by meat, so it's not really a yuck factor either. I just don't like the idea of having to pick things out of my food. It's annoying and frustrating, and would make me feel like I'm eating leftovers or something. I prefer not to order, buy, or take from others any animal products, and I'm ok with having nothing if the only food choices are omni.
