Bearing the preceding string of definitions in mind, can anyone explain to me why people continue to ask vegetarians why we don’t eat fish? Yeah, I get it, “fish is seafood” but they are animals. I have actually had to explain to some folks that the whole purpose of being a vegetarian is to not eat animals. I am not writing this post to put vegetarians on a pedestal or to denounce meat-eating in any way. I just never cease to be baffled as to the source of the cognitive dissonance about vegetarians eating fish.
Tat Tvamasi Aum.
