I need your help, TQC!|
I'm in a bit of a debate with my mother and brother right now.
I consider myself a vegetarian, because I follow all of the guidelines that makes one a vegetarian. However, my mother and brother claim that I'm "not a vegetarian; just a non-meat/fish eating person", because I generally dislike vegetables. Now, I know that it's probably considered odd to be a vegetarian and, for the majority of the time, not like vegetables. But that wouldn't cause me to not be a vegetarian, right?
I'm trying to convince my brother and mother that they're being ridiculous, but they seem to think that they're right. I even checked Wikipedia, and on its Vegetarianism page, it states the following:
"Vegetarianism is the practice of not consuming meat or fish, with or without the use of dairy products or eggs."
It mentions absolutely nothing about vegetables.
So, your opinion(s), fellow TQC-ers?
Edit - Perhaps I'll work on adding some vegetables into my meals, after taking some of the comments into consideration.
