urbandryad I was flexitarian for awhile, admittedly. Then I realized I was full of BS and stopped calling myself that.



Glad to be veg again. :3

WTH? That's really messed up!

Earthling TBH I'd rather they called themselves flexetarians than say they're a vegetarian who eats chicken or has steak on Tuesdays. Any effort to reduce meat consumption is a positive thing in my book, but I do think it's odd that people need to label themselves this way when "omnivore" is a perfectly good term for them...

I know that some flexies may think that they are veg and not realize that they aren't so that's why I said unbeknownly.



Yeah, it's one thing if you say, "I'm a flexitarian, I don't usually eat meat but sometimes I do." But this girl said, "I'm a vegetarian too, but sometimes I eat meat," and that doesn't make sense.

animaniac That's what my mom says she is.

She stopped being a full blow vegetarian 4 months ago, but she says she's a vegetarian who eats meat. There's no such thing!!

That's totally a crock-o-crap.

cody92 Wow this is the first time I've heard of that...I agree with you too, it seems like that was made up for people who maybe cant handle being a vegetarian/vegan?

vegansrock Apparently there's people who call themselves "flexitarians." They say they're vegetarian, but occasionally eat meat I was talking to a girl in school about being vegan, and that's what she told me she is. I've never heard of it before.



I think it's really stupid. Either you're vegetarian or omni, you can't be both.
