<blockquote></blockquote><i>Hi Mylene,</i> <i><br><br>
Until recently, I was eating a six day a week vegan diet, but it became apparent that soy products were triggering my migraines. I also eat beans and seitan for protein, but many beans trigger my migraines as well. About two weeks ago, I added fish to my diet. The result being, I eat a vegan diet with some sustainable seafood for added protein a couple of times a week. Seagan is just a made up name that Ive heard tossed around over the years during my bouts of vegetrarianism/veganism/pescatarianism/<b>ethical omni life</b>. I like six day a week seagan because <b>Im not pescatarian since I dont eat eggs or dairy (except on my one day a week)</b>. Labels are so complicated, right?</i>

These neologisms keep getting more and more stupid. There should be a monster whose diet would be idiotarianism -- the eating of idiots. That monster would then eat all the idiots who keep coming up with this ****.

I would imagine this is what all the new Oprah and Kathy Freston vegan-as-a-weight-loss-plan converts are doing, except they are just calling themselves vegan.<br><br>
At least the "seagans" aren't doing <a href="http://notalwaysright.com/this-vegetarian-is-a-red-herring/11407" target="_blank">this</a>.

I kind of thought this was going to be about pescatarians who decided that name wasn't ridiculous enough, but part of me thought it might have been some weird Carl Sagan thing and sea creatures. Anyway.. I don't really care much what people call themselves (we have the right to label ourselves however we want) but I do have a problem with people promoting ideas that are untrue.<br><br>
There is no such thing as "sustainable seafood."<br>
Eating eggs and dairy "one day a week" might be less than the average American, but it's too much to qualify as vegan.<br><br>
Better labels:<br><br>
Vegan at Heart: someone who eats as a omnivore sometimes, but who strives to eat a plant-based diet and who wants to be vegan eventually<br><br>
VIP - vegan in progress: same as above<br><br>
Part-Time Vegetarian: someone who eats vegetarian (or vegan) more often than the average omni, they do it for any reason they want (health, environmental, animal welfare, whatever)

I agree with all of this. ^

When I saw the word "Seagan" I immediately pictured a wikipedia entry on some underwater fish-mermaid-creature thing.

I almost can't wait for the next silly word based on "vegan" - so far I've heard freegan, beegan and seagan, what's next?!

Freegans are completely unrelated to veganism. Most of them actually eat meat.

'Hegan' has been used in some articles for male vegans.

See, I've completely lost track. I hear words that sound like vegan but aren't, feel slightly ragey and then try and forget about it before I get too annoyed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> All I know is that they aren't vegan, but still want to associate themselves with it...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

It reminds me of what my mom said when I first became vegetarian.

This making up of words/misusing labels reminds me of those ignorant people who think "conversate" is a word. The reason I bring that up is because it's probably the most widely used made up word in existence. When people say that word they're not usually being silly. They really think it's a verb. I used to find it amusing, but I hear it so often that it gets on my nerves now.<br><br>
...I guess this isn't really the same since I don't think anyone in their right mind would think "seegan" is in the dictionary. She probably just thinks she's being funny.

I've never heard that! Conservate as in to conserve something? That's an AWFUL made up word! I'm crazy about spelling and grammar, I'm so glad I've never heard that before <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:"><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Probably. "Har har I'm so funny and my rhyming skills are so clever!" Ugh.

Conversate is to converse, to have a conversation. It's used so often that it's becoming a real word. It's in the dictionary: <a href="http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/conversate" target="_blank">http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/conversate</a>
