Eggs - Meat? Not Meat? Neither?

I told a friend over breakfast the other morning that I gave up meat for Lent. I was eating a frittata at the time, and she looked down and asked, "What about those eggs? They're meat." So ensued the discussion of whether or not eggs are meat. We argued (nicely) that they're not dairy, but unfertilized they are not a chicken either.

What do you think? Meat? Not meat? Neither?

I asked this same question over on The Kitchn and got some very interesting responses.
