I second this opinion and all of the above.Originally Posted by ~Brandon
Yep, what they said. ^^^
Fish isn't a vegetable. It has blood and bones cause it's an animal which would make it not vegetarian because vegetarians don't eat animals.
Come on now, are you actually suggesting that if I were to look at a chart that separated organisms into the plant kingdom and the animal kingdom that fish would be in the animal kingdom??? That's ridiculous!!!Originally Posted by hoodedclawjen
there are lots of threads about this.
people who say they are vegetarians and who still eat fish, well, for a start, they aren't vegetarians (as fish are not vegetables, they are living breathing creatures with eyes and brains and all kindsa other non-plant bits), so these people, either they're misinformed (they don't know that fish aren't plants), or they're purposely misrepresenting themselves (they know, but don't care and still want to call themselves something they aren't).
It has been shown that fish are more intelligent than hamsters so when we get this kind of talk I imagine hamsters instead of fish. Do we put a whole bunch of hamsters in a big cage and raise them that way and then slaughter them? Do we set out cages to catch a bunch of wild ones and then drown them en masse? Do we allow people to trick them one at a time with bait on a hook so that people can have a lovely afternoon communing with nature?
Any option stinks except to leave them alone.
Not to start a debate here outside of the Heap but your statement has been made and I want to suggest that there is a different way of looking at it:Originally Posted by steinbock
Eat fish if you want to, that's not my place to tell people what they should eat (just like it isn't their place to tell me what I should eat).
I think it's confusing to people cooking for vegetarians (whether in restaurants or home cooks) that some people call themselves vegetarians but eat seafood.Originally Posted by *Megz*
