Hmm I see, but now with science, some vegetarians still not considering it as meat.
For exactly the same reason those medieval folk had, it's a handy loophole.

Mammal? So chicken is not a meat also?
According to Oxford dictionary, "the flesh of an animal or a bird eaten as food". So fish is not an animal by your definition.
no, if you ask me, fishes are aliens from Neptune and not animals, but that's me.
so I do not CONSIDER them meat.
Now seriously, mate
DO you ever go to a lingerie store and demand for a pair of jeans your sze because " CLOTHES ARE CLOTHES, the dictionary says so?I do not think so, but if you say yes, I would not be surprised at this point
What? Different analogy.Now this is the definition of animal: "A living organism which feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and a nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli" this is quick math. Your analogy was different and not on point, a store that sells certain types of clothes, doesn't mean that other clothes aren't clothes.
I am not asking for a chicken in a fish market, this is your analogy.
please say you're not on the debate team
No, but you make invalid arguments
wait till you find out tomatoes are fruits that are considered vegetablesyou will freak out
Really not odd thing. There is a saying: Knowledge is to know tomatoes are fruits, wisdom is understanding that tomatoes don't fit fruit salad.
Now you just try to tease instead of developing a valid argument to your point. Shallow.
Knowledge is to know fish is also flesh, but wisdom is understanding why it would not last fresh if you stored it at the meat section of the supermarket.
Do you think my saying will stick for posterity?
Again, bad analogy, storing bananas next to oranges, and bananas obviously out fresh first, doesn't mean that just one of them is a fruit.
the problem you have here, is that you are not CONSIDERING the concept of CONSIDERINGfor practical purposes in life and living, we must not take the dictionary to the most strict and literal definitions, we have practical CONSIDERATIONS and differentiations for the real world. The dictionary is just a book.If you wish and you have a really good dictionary go to the Misnomers section.
other things to CONSIDER for differentiation, are the differences between meat, fowl and fish.They are, for the most part, cooked in different ways and styles, that are not so similar, their taste is also very different as well as the nutrients we get from them, and last but not least, they do come from very different types of animals... mammals, birds and fishes.There is even another clear differentiation to CONSIDER when it comes to meat, and that would be "game" which is the one coming from mammals you have to hunt on the wild, or semi-wild... very different from the usually domesticated animals meat we get from the stores.the answer to your question, was in your question all along, you only fixated on the wrong word at the dictionary and decided to pretend is an actual debate.
But the definition does matter here, because if some vegetarians eat fish because they don't consider it meat, it question the definition and what is meat? Maybe someone can decide chicken is not meat and eat it although he is vegetarian. I agree in some cases you should consider, when the area is grey, but here it's black and white.
Vegeterians already have different concepts and guidelines that align with their specific diets, and think vegan and vegetarian is not the same thing in detail, so yes, they also CONSIDER differentiations, for very practical purposes.
I know, but there is a difference between concepts of what to eat and defining the foods as itself.
yes, and that is why they have other words, and not just vegetarian.
