Because their diet puts them in the minority, vegetarians receive a lack of esteem from meat eaters.
Today is World Vegetarian Day, established by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 and endorsed by the International Vegetarian Union.
The day is designed to boost awareness for the vegetarian lifestyle.
Giving esteem toward vegetarians acknowledges their eating habits open-heartedly. This esteem has to be mutual what means that vegetarians acknowledge equally the eating habits of the non-vegetarians. An esteemful discussion about eating habits of any kind should be led by mutual respect.
