A vegetarian who eats eggs and dairy is an ovo-lacto-vegetarian. So yes, you can be vegetarian and still eat eggs and dairy products.

Answering the question of this topic, that's what I am, an ovo-lacto-vegetarian. I went through a period where I was a pescetarian (a pesce-vegetarian, as some of you call it, somebody who still eats fish), but I don't eat fish anymore.

I started out a pretty strict vegan (checking labels on shampoo, etc.) Then devolved into a much more relaxed one, not minding if a label said "contains milk & eggs" so long as it wasn't blatantly a dairy product. I figured it's not an ideal world, and it's not really my fault everything has dairy or eggs in it. Now I'm probably more of a part-time vegetarian, part vegan. I will very seldom have eggs or something with dairy on it, but that's not really the basis of my diet, and I tend to avoid it. I guess I'm just really relaxed, but still don't really like animal products. Does that make me a veg*n? Or is that not really a label?

I think veg*n is an umbrella term used for groups rather than individuals, like LGBT. I'd just call you a vegetarian who doesn't eat dairy and eggs that often. There's no particular reason why we have to label ourselves that accurately for other people's curiosity, you know!

Vegetarian since age 11, vegan since age 19. Although you may not consider me to be properly vegan for the first two years, as I ate honey during that time. Once I realised that the honey industry causes cruelty and death just as the dairy and egg industries do, I stopped the honey as well.

I'm vegan for all things diet; lifestyle-wise, I'm not vegan yet, but I'm working towards it.

I've been a vegetarian since I was in 7th grade and while it might have started out as a dare from my best friend, I became aware of how my diet has impacts not only on my weight, but on my family, community, and the environment. It's probably been the best decision I have ever made

I just switched to being vegan. I used to be vegetarian for a while, then quit, now switched entirely to vegan. I try not to eat anything prepackaged or processed. I'm not a strict vegan yet but I'm sure with time I will be.

I am a lacto-ovo

As far as ethics are concerned, what is the point of semi-vegetarianism?
