vegetarian does not eat meat, fish or poultry, but eats eggs and milk. They eat eggs and products made with eggs in them, yogurt, cheese, milk and ice creams. Some may not eat eggs or cheese.

now we can all spot the difference, i as a vegan would not align pescetarian with vegetarians, what is a difference in eating a sea creature and a land animal?

They are on their way to becoming full vegetarians so let's give them our support.

These so called Pescetarians do not have a problem with eating meat like most vegetarians or vegans, they have a problem with eating animals deemed "cute". You know mammals! The ones that "deserve" not to be killed. That seems to be the mind set of these pescetarians, as well as many animal right activists
I agree. I work with a person like this. She bases what she eats and what animal causes to be part of based on the cuteness of the animal involved. She doesn't even do it consciously, but her reasoning essentially comes to this when you talk to her about it.
