What can you say about trendy/fashionable vegetarians?

There are real vegetarians and there are vegetarians who are in it because it's fashionable. The trendy ones like to talk about it, they feel being vegetarian is pointless unless people notice it, and they are quite easy to spot. Your opinions please. No holds barred!

I think vegeterianism is part of the indie/hipster fad that also consists of things like existentialism, graphic design, over-sized glasses and skinny pants. I do like some of those things, and I was a vegeterian until recently, but I believe that vegeterianism should have a solid cause (like the love of animals or being on a diet), and not just for fashion.

Being a vegetarian i believe is a nobel cause even though i could not live without meat. People who just do it to be trendy are stupid. Surely there are better ways of being fashionable such as your hair and clothing and accessories etc.

Those who claim to be, in your word 'trendy, fashionable vegetarians' are just deceiving themselves. It takes a lot of discipline to become a real one. Just because they prefer salad doesn't make them a vegetarian. Next time you eat out with them, observe what they eat and you will find out who the real ones are. Some claims to be vegetarians but they eat the bits of meat or slices of egg in their vegetable salad. Isn't that an outright hypocrisy?
