The Week contest: Veg prejudice
This week's question: A new study has found that vegetarians report lower self-respect and derive less pleasure from life than omnivores, possibly because they are made to feel odd or different by meat eaters. Please come up with a term for the prejudice faced by vegetarians in a society dominated by carnivores.
