Proposal: Veganism and Vegetarianism
Some of the questions being proposed are asking about what people are 'allowed' to eat and what really counts as vegetarian/vegan. For example:
As a vegetarian, can I have poultry?
As a vegetarian, can I have fish and seafood? (including crabs, lobsters, etc.)
These are trying to get at a specific definition of vegetarianism, which could be provided but I think would be a bad idea. Here's another example of what I think would be problematic:
I am preparing food for a vegan friend; can I use cookware that's previously been used to cook meat?
This answer really would just be "it depends on your friend". The previous two questions could only be answered with "It is your choice what you eat".
I think that questions seeking to have an answer on what vegetarianism/veganism are, or seek a rigid set of rules or definitions should be disallowed. The site can't be a repository of information on the 'correct' way to be vegan/vegetarian, because there's no such thing. Having questions that are asked on that basis will only muddy those waters.
