The word she was looking for was pescatarian (the term for someone who eats fish meat but not any other kind of meat). So she was stupid to be arrogant in the first place, and doubly so for getting the term wrong.

Sorry OP. She should have tried to explain that to you rather than make you feel dumb : That goes for anyone wether they are right or wrong.

12- I think they all have brains, just not to the level of others. Kinda like comparing a gorilla to a jellyfish....wait...okay, you're right.

I didn't know OP's girlfriend had an FML account?!

So you're surprised that you didn't know that? Is that why you put the "?!" there?

It’s obvious that OP has a brain but maybe we just read the FML in a wrong way and OP’s girlfriend made a compliment. She could have muttered the comment about the brains a little bit later, sometime after she realized what she has ordered. Then it would be a compliment because she acknowledged that her boyfriend has the brains in their relationship and not she. Think positive, OP, it’s just a matter of your point of view.

Sorry OP. Intelligence isn't directly correlated with knowledge; if anything she's the one being arrogant for expecting that to be obvious. don't feel bad(:

Someone can be smart and not know/understand something like that. Common knowledge to one person isn't common knowledge to another. Though, she did seem like a total fuck by the tone and wording of this FML.

Botanically the tomato is indeed a fruit, but culinarily it's classified as a vegetable as you tend to have it for supper, not dessert. The US courts also ruled it as a vegetable back in the... 1940s? I don't remember what year, but they had to make a ruling as vegetables were taxed at the time while fruits were not. Thus, obviously, the US decided to class the tomato as a vegetable.

#38: I have nothing against vegans or vegetarians, and respect their life choices. However, your argument that they don't want to eat anything previously alive is fundamentally flawed. Is vegetation not alive?

#38 Vegans and vegetarians are two different things you know. Vegans don't eat anything from animals. Vegetarians eat products from animals like dairy, but don't eat meat. If someone only eats seafood and no other meat they're pescetarians.

I used to be a pescatarian, and often I would just tell people I was a vegetarian knowing they wouldn't know the other term and I was too lazy to explain the difference. So yeah, sometimes pescatarians describe themselves as vegetarians to people, but it's not accurate at all.

Can I just say the difference between fish and processed meat is the same as the difference between a slab of steak and a processed meat. I just feel the need to clear that up because it seems every idiot personal trainer out there hears "no processed meat" and tries to cut any kind of meat out of people's diets.

#77, I often do the same thing. I only tell people I'm a pescatarian when I am eating seafood in front of them. Otherwise, I just say vegetarian because I am also too lazy to explain what a pescatarian is to every Subway worker who takes my order.

No, it's not. "Semi-vegetarian" is like "sort of pregnant". One either is or is not a vegetarian. And if someone eats sea creatures, that person is called a pescatarian.

Maybe she's pescetarian and you just thought she was vegetarian?

Smart and a vegan. Definitely a keeper OP.

She's a vegetarian if she eats fish.

A lot do, they consider fish, fish and not meat.

That would make them pescatarian, not vegetarian. Different types of vegetarianism allow people to eat dairy or eggs, but not meat. Also #9, there's a big difference between vegetarian and vegan.

Vegans and Vegetarians are NOT the same. Vegans - eat/use absolutely no animal products what so ever (Meat, leather, eggs, milk. Vegetarians - Eat/use no products and involve animal death. (Meat, leather, gelatin.)

Also since when are we allowed to pick and choose what is and is not meat? By that logic I decide that chicken and pork aren't meat thus, I am currently a vegetarian.

I actually didnt know vegetarians could eat shrimp. Cuz shrimp is technically meat from an animal. all of it. haha its ok OP.

A lot of vegetarians eat fish, it's vegans who you are thinking of.

Leary96 - You don't seem to get the point. Vegans do not consume any animal flesh or animal byproducts. Vegetarians will consume animal byproducts (eggs and milk) but will not consume the flesh of any animal (including shrimp and fish). A pescaterian is a vegetarian who makes an exception for fish. If she eats shrimp, she is not a vegetarian. She is a pescatarian.
