My fifteen-year old daughter informs me that among the high-school crowd on MySpace one of the more popular things to do is to define oneself as a vegetarian (even though there are several people who have defined themselves as such that she knows are definitely not so in real life).
It's also becoming the Thing to Say that: "In the future, everyone will be a vegetarian".
She asked me if I believed this and I said no, some people would probably take to eating vegetarians before they gave up meat entirely.
So - am I wrong? In the future will everyone be a vegetarian, like they are trumpeting on MySpace?
